When to go
The best months to visit are from December to April but the island enjoys consistently hot temperatures year round. The popular tourist area along the north coast is much dryer than elsewhere, and sea breezes help to keep humidity down. The rainy season is from May to October, but the Blue Mountains get quite a bit throughout the year.

Do I need a visa?

British passport holders don’t need a visa to visit Jamaica.

Thank you for your patience and understanding


Payments are being prioritised based on when the request was made, working in order from March 2020 onwards. We will always try to process refunds at the earliest opportunity, for requests before August our maximum timeframe is 120 days. As we are steadily reducing the maximum processing time for each new request, for refund requests made in August, we expect the maximum processing time to be 80 days, from the date the refund is requested. For those requesting a refund in September, we expect it to be processed within a maximum of 60 days, and then reduce to 30 days for refunds requested in October, before returning to normal levels.

We'll be in touch soon


To finalise the amendment, one of our customer advisors will phone you. We need to work through amend requests in departure date order so we can prioritise those with the most imminent travel plans, so you may have a longer wait than usual until we’re able to ring you back. We will help everyone that wants to move their holiday.
