What time of day is cheapest to fly to Jamaica?

To get the best value, try booking a flight in the morning when visiting Jamaica. Generally the prices will increase for flights in the evening as these tend to have higher demand.

Rastafarianism, reggae and rum: Jamaica is the birthplace of these popular symbols that define the Caribbean nation. For years honeymooners have flocked to its pristine beaches and quaint towns in search of the island getaway depicted in the movies. Lord of the Flies and James Bond’s classic Dr. No were filmed on the island. In fact Ian Fleming was so captivated with Jamaica that he built a retreat east of Ocho Rios named “Goldeneye” which movie buffs booking flights to Jamaica can rent during their stay.

It may be difficult to choose just one area to visit during a trip to Jamaica, since each side of the island is unique in its own right. Montego Bay, the thriving business centre where most flights to Jamaica land, is home to luxury hotels and uncrowded beaches. But to experience the hedonism and kitchness of Jamaica’s megaresorts venture away from Mo Bay to Negril where some resorts are divided into “prude” and “nude” sides. If that’s left you yearning for some peace and quiet then the secluded shores of Treasure Beach in the south will leave you breathless – and reposed.

When is the best time to fly to Jamaica?

Peak Season:

Mid-December through mid-April is the peak season for visitors booking flights to Jamaica, and reservations need to be made a couple months in advance. This season is especially busy at Carnival, which is March and April in Kingston, MoBay, and Ocho Rios, and May in Negril. MoBay is also busy with the Air Jamaica’s Jazz and Blues Festival in January.

Off Season:

Mid-April to mid-December sees rates cut by 20 to 60 per cent. However, it does get busy around the Reggae Sumfest, usually in late July or early August, and the Marlin Tournament every October in Ocho Rios and Port Antonio.

Getting around Jamaica

Driving isn’t so much a problem as is the cost of renting a car and buying gas — both can be prohibitive. Jamaicans drive on the left, road conditions range from excellent to terrible, and local drivers can be quite erratic, aggressive, and boisterous. The Jamaica Tourist Board’s Discover Jamaica road map is considered one of the best maps of the island.

For short distances, taxis are a reasonable option as is hiring a private driver and car for the day. Renting mopeds and motorcycles is another popular form of transport. Buses and minibuses go everywhere, are inexpensive, and a fun way to meet Jamaicans.

For longer distances, domestic flights are reasonably priced and airports convenient to different parts of the island, particularly the resorts.
