Here's how much you can expect to pay for things in Jamaica:
You should be able to pay with card in hotels and large shops and restaurants, but will need cash for smaller purchases.
ATMs are widely available in larger towns and cities on the island in banks branches, shopping centres, resorts and petrol stations. However, they typically add a service fee, and are not always in service, particularly outside of popular tourist areas. For this reason, it’s a good idea to carry some emergency cash on you as a back-up.
Do I need to tip?
A 10% tip is customary in hotels and restaurants, but this may be added to your bill automatically.
Tipping in taxis isn’t expected.
£1 equates to roughly 164 J$. For context, that’s 1,000 J$ for just over £6.
