How far in advance should private transfers be booked?

We will be arriving on 12/6 and need to arrange a private transfer from MoBay to Negril...when would be a good time to book it?

Thinking about using Kenny....

You can arrange transfers at any time. This includes when you arrive at the airport in Jamaica. For a private transfer I would arrange it about a week before arrival and then confirm it the day before arrival. Retain any written record of the booking and seek a telephone number that you can use, if needed, when you arrive on the island.

I arrange about 2 months before, confirm a week before and sometimes the day before, but the latter hasn't seemed necessary.

Depends who you are booking with and their resources, if it is an independent with one van I book as soon as I have my flights booked...if you are not particular who you book with or have someone who has many driver/vans you are probably OK a few weeks in advance.

Thanks so much.!

we are visiting in november and are looking for a driver for an arrival transfer to Negril and then maybe a tour later in the week.

I am still looking for recommendations :)
