All participants must purchase travel insurance that is valid for this type of adventure trip and send us a copy of your insurance details prior to your arrival. Most regular health policies do NOT cover international travel nor an emergency air evacuation to the United States/Canada, but the travel policies do and are very affordable. We have included the insurance we think is the best in terms of coverage and affordability for this type of adventure holiday from Travel Nomads. Please use the link of our website so as to ensure you access the correct policy. The link to Travel Nomads is in the panel to the right of this page.( it links to their website).
All of the hotels will be serviced by our luggage trucks to provide pick-up and drop-off service during the tour. If you choose other accommodations, you must make arrangements to drop your luggage at the host hotel at the start of each day to ensure its arrival in the next town.
We will store all bicycle cases at our offices in Montego Bay,after your arrival and it will be returned to you at the end of the ride at our host hotel in Montego Bay.
Our luggage truck will carry one piece of luggage per registered cyclist during the ride. Each bag must be no larger than standard "airline carry-on" size and weigh no more than 30 pounds. Cyclists must label their luggage with their name, a contact telephone number and the name of their hotel in each of the destination cities. Cyclists will drop off their luggage in a designated location in their hotel at the start of each day (see schedule overview for details). Luggage will only be collected from our selection of host hotels
Luggage will be delivered to the hotels well before cyclists arrive in the destination city. You will not be able to access luggage while riding, so please plan accordingly. At the conclusion of the tour, all luggage items will be deposited at the final location given on the baggage label. Luggage without labels, will be kept at our office in Montego Bay, and it will be the sole responsibility and expense of the participant to arrange for collection of same.
The Jamaica Reggae Ride does not handle bike shipping. This is a process that needs to be completed in its entirety by the participant through their airline.
CARIBBEAN AIRLINES - Fort Lauderdale
A very bike friendly airline. Fit your bike into a lightweight bike bag and you can check it in. In April we have persons who used the Bike Caddy boxes which were so huge and Caribbean Airlines charged nothing extra. Be sure to check before purchasing your ticket as of course things could change. We hope not!
I think its the most bike-friendly airline in the world. Great services. Direct flight to Montego Bay. Book early to get the really good fares as the Rose Hall Triathlon usually happens on Veterans weekend and so it can mean higher fares if yo book late.
WESTJET - Canada
$20 ( sporting equipment ) as a 2nd piece of luggage each way.
