Reasonable rate for airport transfer

we booked our air and hotel seperately and as a result we need to book a transfer. presumably there are no shuttles and you should book a private transfer. i have plenty of names from the forum. what is a reasonable rate from the airport to SJG? what about from SJG to negril?

peace & blessings,

If you don't mind riding on a bus with others you can go for like $18 per person. It's not too bad as there are generally just 2 or 3 hotel stops. We did have to wait a little while for our bus though.

On the way back we had Dennis the Menace drive us back. We had used him for a few tours and decided to have him drive us to the airport. The day before we left I mentioned we still hadn't tried a patti. When he picked us up to take us back to the airport he had pattis and drinks for my gf and I. It's a few more bucks taking a private driver if its just one or two of you but I think well worth it.

From Montego Bay to SJG (Ocho Rios) transportation should be approximately $70-90us for private transportation.

Acrv...yes, my quote was for one way.

Your round trip quote is on the high side. I called a few drivers here....and the highest price I came up with was around $280us round trip for 6 people.

Maybe try emailing these drivers for pricing...I recommend them for their reliability and affordability.

The ExploreJamaica site doesn't appear to advertise a $50 rate for transfer to Negril. Am I looking in the right spot?
