Shop around for the flights using your favorite flight search engines. We highly recommend using Google Flights.
Be sure to check with your airline for what their baggage fees are. Your baggage cannot weigh over 50 pounds or you will incur an additional surcharge.
Be mindful of TSA Limits. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) place limits on the amount of liquid you can carry on. Liquids (gels, lotions, etc.) in a carry-on bag must be three ounces or smaller and packed together in a quart-sized, clear plastic bag. For more detailed information, visit the TSA’s website.
Bring a spare change of clothes in a carry-on in case your baggage gets lost.
A valid passport with an expiration date of no less than 6 months following the conclusion of the trip is required. This must be a full passport, not a passport card: don't leave home without it.
Call your debit and credit card companies before you leave and let them know you are traveling out of the country. This will help avoid declined transactions or failed ATM withdraws.
Arrive at the airport 2 hours prior to your departure. This is required for international travel.
Jamaica is EST all year long.

WHAT TO BRING
We have arranged ground transportation to and from the Montego Bay, Jamaica airport and the Jewel Grande.
After you retrieve your luggage, be sure to exit the airport and bypass anyone trying to stop you to offer time shares or sell you transportation. Once you are outside, look for the JTL staff with “Stream/Jewel Grande” signs. They will direct you to private shuttles. The drive from the airport to the Grand at Moon Palace is approximately 15 minutes.
Be sure to provide your flight details in the registration by October 1st so that Stream can arrange your ground transportation in Jamaica.
Because this is an all-inclusive resort, all food and beverages at the resort are included in your trip.
Additional expenses you will or may incur are:
Transportation to and from your local airport
Off-resort food and beverages
Select rentals on property
Nothing says vaction quite like casual wear. However, you may want to opt for long pants or a sundress for dinners. Be prepared with more adventurous gear for off-site activities and excursions. Some restaurants may require closed toed shoes and dress pants/jeans for men.
Jamaica's weather is warm throughout the year. Expect highs in the mid 80s and lows in the mid 70s. While you’ll be wearing shorts or swimwear in the day, you might want a light sweater or jacket in the evenings.
