    Hi Guys
    I found an old thread saying that Chandlyn accepts travelers checks, and Michael accepts CC.

    Now I know that Michael no longer accepts cards- but does accept Travelers checks, as he said in his email to me. But can you still pay chandlyn with travelers checks? Does this also apply to Tai Flora and the steel drum band?

    Thanks guys.

      Hi I know Tai Flora emailed Chandlyn to confirm I was getting my bouquet from them, and would they collect the payment from me, so I assume she will be paid for everything. Are you just bringing US$ or a combination of both J$ and US?
      We were planning to bring our debit cards with us so we can take money out of the ATMs but you only get J$

      I thought it would be a better exchange rate taking money out when we're there. What are your views?

        I was only going to take US$, but get near as I can the right amount of travellers cheques to pay Chandlyn and Michael. Don't want to carry that much cash around!! Also not sure about charges for using your card in the ATM. Someone on here said that the nearest exchange is in town, so maybe we'll have to pop down there for more. Hopefully won't need alot anyway - its AI for god's sake ha ha

        You planning on doing any excursions?

          From what I have read on here, I would not rely on the ATM at the resort. I think sometimes it is out of money and other times, it does not work altogether. If you plan on bringing travelers checks, I would just make sure that they are in smaller denominations since any change that you receive would probably be in Jamaican Dollars.

            When you pay Chandlyn, you'll be paying for everything wedding related, including Tai Flora & the steel drum band. I would think that she still accepts travelers checks but I would confirm with her just to be safe.

            As you already know, you'll be paying Michael separately for his services.

            I didn't have any experience using an ATM at ROR & don't even remember seeing it, but then again, I wasn't looking for it. I agree that I don't think I'd rely on that being available either. You wouldn't want to rely on it & then find that its out of service or something. KWIM?

              Hi yeah our plan is to pay for everything with travellers cheques as well but I heard its good to have a few extra dollars for tipping. We might have to go down to the town to use the ATM but we'll have to see, it would be nice to see a bit of the local area & maybe do a couple of excursions. Unfortunately we'll have to see what we can afford but mind you, those 2 weeks are going to fly by! What with our wedding on the Friday & yours on the following Wednesday, remember we'll have to allow the day's after the weddings, we'll be in a fragile state (maybe) & of course we're going back on the Tuesday before you so we'll see.
              Yeah sure unless we go outside resort, it won't cost us a penny!

                We payed Chandlyn in travellers checks. I also payed the salon on travellers checks. If you use travellers checks at the salon, they require a picture ID. I didn't know this, and I went for my appointment, I had to walk all the way across the resort to get my ID to pay.

                  Can you use your credit card instead of travelers checks to pay for everything? Will Chandlyn accept that?

                    Chandlyn does accept a credit card. Keep in mind that most credit card companies charge a fee for using the credit card in a different country.

                      We used a credit card to pay Chandlyn ( band... flowers etc.) and paid Photoshop with cash

                      There was no extra charge on my credit card...

                      but I did call Visa before I left to let them know i would be using it out of the country... can't hurt:)
