We'll help you to get the best Jamaican Dollar exchange rate

We compare the Jamaican Dollar rates from dozens of the UK's biggest currency suppliers including the Post Office, supermarkets, high street banks and specialist online travel money providers, so you can see in an instant who is offering the best deals after commission and delivery charges have been accounted for. Many of our travel money affiliates also offer our customers exclusive exchange rates that are even better than if you go to them direct, and on average our customers save £59 when they compare with us.

Generally speaking, specialist online travel money providers and bureau de change offer the best Jamaican Dollar exchange rates, followed by the supermarkets, the Post Office and then the banks. The absolute worst rates of all are found at the airports so try to avoid buying there at all costs. If you're short on time and need your currency in a hurry, check out our Click & Collect Jamaican Dollars page to find a local supplier near you.

Jamaican Dollar rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Jamaican Dollar has dropped by 5.38% from 166.188 on the 19th August to 157.240 today. Back then, £750 would have bought you $6,711.00 more than it would today. During this period the Jamaican Dollar hit a high of 173.144 on the 23rd September and a low of 157.092 on the 12th November. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Jamaican Dollar exchange rate history page.

The Jamaican Dollar is stocked and widely available in most bureau de change here in the UK. This makes the exchange rates on offer very competitive. You can also exchange your money while you are in Jamaica. Almost all towns have a licensed money changer but there are normally handling fees of between 2-5% added to the cost so buying beforehand is advisable.

If you plan on withdrawing a lot of cash when you are in Jamaica it is worth bearing in mind that most ATM machines outside of city centres are not available 24 hours.

Jamaica is still very much a cash-based society and you can often pay in US Dollars, Euros or Pounds. Places that accept non-local currencies will usually give change in Jamaican Dollars using a poor exchange rate for conversions. If you are planning on visiting a lot of places in the Caribbean, it may be worth considering a prepaid us dollar card to avoid taking multiple currencies with you.

Before you travel to Jamaica you can get advice from the UK Government website

To enter Jamaica as a British Citizen you do not need a visa and you can stay for up to 90 days. When you arrive your passport will be stamped with the date that you need to leave by Jamaican Customs Officials. If you plan on staying for longer than 90 days you should contact the Jamaican High Commission in London for more information.

There are usually no taxes to pay upon entry to Jamaica as these are generally included in the cost of your ticket. However, this is not always the case when flying via charter flights and in these circumstances there is an arrival tax of $10 USD for airline passengers and $2 USD for cruise passengers. For departure the tax charge is 1000 Jamaican Dollars which is roughly £7 GBP.

Prepaid Jamaican Dollar Cards

Prepaid currency cards are designed specifically to be used overseas. They work the same way as a standard UK bank card, except their fees are lower when used in Jamaica and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
