PASSPORTS – Do I need a passport to travel into Mexico?

Ground or land travelers are required to have a passport or passport card. However, the rules continue to change. Below is the most current information.

  • AIR TRAVEL – ALL PERSONS traveling by air outside of the United States are required to present a passport book or other valid travel documents to enter or re-enter the United States.
  • LAND AND SEA TRAVEL – ALL PERSONS traveling by land and sea outside the United Sates are required to present a passport book/card, or other valid travel documents to enter or re-enter the United States.

VISAS – Why do I need a Visa when I have a passport?

Passports – certify you are a citizen of the country issuing the passport.

Visas – certify the government of the country you are visiting has given you permission to travel into their country.

The government of each country that you visit sets the rules on the visa. If there is a charge for the Visa, that money goes to the government of the country you are visiting. Some countries require a Visa but will not levy a charge for the permit. Visas are required for most all travelers going into Mexico by land and traveling beyond the first check point. However, the Visa is free if the stay in Mexico is seven days or less. If the trip is of eight days or more, a paid Visa is required. Currently, the charge for the paid Visa is around 210 pesos with the paid Visa good for multiple entries up to 180 days.

PERSONAL INSURANCE – Is it required?

No, insurance is not required, but it is definitely recommended. However, we can never anticipate what might happen to us while on a trip or to a loved one who stays at home. We recommend that you take insurance to cover trip interruption, trip cancellation, repatriation and baggage loss.

LIABILITY INSURANCE – Does Go…With Jo! have liability insurance?

Yes, we do! Every legitimate transportation company will abide by the law of the country in which they are operating. Those of us who operate cross border transportation are required not only to have liability insurance to cover the US transportation, but also are required to carry Mexican liability insurance for our travels in Mexico. This insurance will cover you only if the accident occurs while you are on the bus.

I’M READY TO GO! Do I have to go to your office to sign up?

No, you can register by phone, go to your park representative or visit your travel agent.

How Can I Pay?

Cash – must be paid in person.

Check – can be delivered or mailed in.

Credit Card – Call in your credit card number or present it to the salesperson.

How Soon Do I need to Register?

Please register as soon as you decide to travel. Some trips sell out quickly. If you are registering months in advance, then you can choose to pay a deposit with the balance due at a later date. Seats are limited on some tours. The more economical cabins sell first on the cruises and tours involving airline travel have also have deadlines to be met. As the airlines try to economize by cutting back on number of departures, seats become limited and sell out fast. Don’t be left behind! Call Go…With Jo! today!

Are Deposit and Balance Due Dates the Same on All Tours?

No, they are not the same. Overseas tours and cruises all have different Deposit Amounts and Balance Due dates. Tours that have been packaged by Go…With Jo! have more lenient restrictions than those enforced by the larger companies.

What If I Change my Mind?

Again, overseas tours and cruises will have different penalties for cancellation. Tours packaged by Go…With Jo! tend to be more lenient on penalties. Ask the tour or travel consultant at the Go…With Jo! office for more details.
