Transportation from ROR to honeymoon?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I will be getting married at ROR in March 2009 and staying at the RIU Palace Tropical Bay in Negril a 2nd week for our homeymoon. Our transportation from one resort to the other is not included with our package & our travel agent doesn't seem able to arrange this for us !?

 

Has anyone travelled from Ocho Rios to Negril. Any suggestions for arranging transportation, good drivers to recommend and/or idea of how much this would cost?

 

Thanks so much :)

Hey..Im getting married at ROR and then honeymooning at Couples Negril....

 

I was worried about this, but researched my options...

1) You can take a private cab/taxis from ROR to the RIU in Negril...I got a quote from Lees Travel- who apparently from many brides comes very recommended...She quoted me around $100. The distance between to two locations is about 3 hours or so...but you and your husband would be able to sit comfortably in an air conditioned cab alone and not have to worry about stopping if you didnt want to..

 

If you would like to contact Lees Travel, the number is somewhere within this forum you just have to search for it...She was very very friendly and responded back quickly to my email request not only with an email herself but also a phone call..

 

2) The other option is to head back to the airport and then catch the free shuttle from the airport to the RIU Negril...This is what we are going because its free, and also we are able to go back to the airport with our guests and say goodbye to them there....

 

My travel agent said that she would coordinate the times to as when the guests will have to leave and when there is a shuttle going to the other resort for us so that it sort of matches up....

 

Hope this helps!

My fiance and I are honeymooning at Couples Swept Away and the people at Couples said we could get in touch with them from ROR to coordinate our ride there. I think we too will go back to the airport to see our guests off and take the free shuttle from there....but I think she said it might be possible for them to pick us up directly at ROR.....which wouldn't make much sense for them but oh well! :)

We are leaving Dec 6 and getting on married on the 11th

 

Married at ROR to Honeymoon at R Negril exact same as you!

 

We booked the transfer through Lees tours, her charge is 160.00 - she was the cheapest we found. We also tried Jamaica Tours | Jamaica-tour.com he was 175.00.

 

The standard taxi charge we were told was 180.00.

 

Sunqest who we are going with was $220.00.

 

Hope that helps...I am not too sure where the 100.00 quote came from to be honest with you from Lees Tours, but they are great in the sense that they will give you a tour on the way as well.

I dont know, but she did quote me $100...but we arent going with them anyways...I would definately bring my email where she quoted me the $100 if I did end up going with Lees...

 

Ohh, I guess the free shuttle is only with your package if you got one, in which our is Sunquest and the shuttle is included both to the Riu and back to the airport...

Thanks so much for your info ladies! We are travelling with Sunquest as well but I did not like the idea of going back to the airport. Lee's sounds great.. I will be e-mailing them shortly!

 

Thanks again smile03.gif

Sunquest, like most tour operators include transfers in their packages but there is a charge. The only time transfers are free is when the resort provides them as an extra amenity such as Sandals and Couples resorts.

Hi Maureen,

If Couples provides transfers, do you think they would pick us up at ROR to get us down to Negril? My fiance & I are getting married at ROR and then honeymooning at Couples Swept Away.

Thanks for the info wink.gif Does it not make sense to go back to the airport then? How much time would that add on to our travel timehuh.gif

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
