RIU Ocho Rios Tranfers?

Recommended Posts

I thought RIU provides Tranfers from the airport? Well I just called and they say they don't now what can I do? Have anyone came across this problem and if they booked someone else how much do they charge?

They told me the same thing last week...they don't provide transfers to any of their resorts in Jamaica. I think thats ridiculous but whatever. I used Lee's tours last year & will be using them again. You should definitely contact them. As many BDW Jamaica brides can confirm, they are great to work with & I found them to be affordable.

we are using a TA for all of our arrangements because I was becoming easily flustered trying to arrange and confirm all on my own. I did ask my TA though, that if some of my guests booked their own arrangements would they be able to get a transfer from the airport, or with my group. My TA said that even if people booked their own arrangements, she could still help coordinate a transfer from the airport to ROR if the guests wanted to pay for it that way instead of finding it on their own. So if someone needed a transfer another suggestion besides contacting a local company is to use a TA just for that. Maybe not all travel agents will accommodate but I know some will and its worth looking into.

Wow this is news to me - I just assumed that all AI packages included airport transfers! I know my package with Sunquest includes this, but I'm wondering about the bus that is provided. What kind of bus is it? Does it have air conditioning? (FI is really worried about this!) 2 - 2 1/2 hours on a bus is a pretty long time, so if the bus is really bad I'm thinking it might be worth it to spend the money on private transfers. For any brides that had the transfers included in their package, can you shed any light on this for me? Is it worth spending money on something we are already getting for free? I am trying to look for places I can cut some costs, and am not convinced this would be a good place to spend the extra $$. I got a quote from Lee's Tours for our group and it's not exactly cheap, even though I'm sure they are great from everything I've read from other brides who have used them. Any info anyone has on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help ladies!!!

We booked with Sunquest as well. The bus is a regular "Greyhound" type bus with a/c. No need to spend more money on private transfers. Unless you feel the need too..

Thanks so much Sloan, that's what I was hoping to hear! I can think of so many better ways to spend that money :)
