From Mexico Insurance Online:
I mentioned in the last newsletter we were starting to see a positive growth trend in our Mexico insurance products. Did it continue in February? I am pleased to say that it did. February was up roughly 10% over last year. We have you, our agency partners, to thank for that. So, thank you.
As you know, March is typically a great month for the Mexico insurance industry. Spring break attracts thousands of people to all over Mexico. This year will be the same. However, there are always bumps in the road. Some of you may have seen the recent travel warning addressing some of the issues in Mexico, originally it was one of the strongest warnings we have seen. However, the warning was quickly clarified in an interview with the Associated Press: “The federal government is not telling people to stay out of Mexico. That is not the purpose of this travel alert,” said Chad Cummins the U.S. consul in Nogales, Sonora.
The Federal Government went on to further clarify, stating that people should use caution. What is meant by “caution?” I am not sure, but I would like to share a tip that I received two years ago when visiting with the Consul General in Hermosillo. While I don’t remember the exact words he used, Mr. Breidenstine said that if American’s would quit driving at night, most of the issues he sees would be taken care of.
While this may not solve every issue, the counsel is wise. For more information about the clarification, please visit the following site: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/travel/2017533022_webmexicowarning17.html
