Travel Information

A valid passport is required for international travel.  The "six month validity rule" requires that a passport is valid for six months beyond your return date. It is the personal responsibility of each traveler to ensure that they have the correct travel documents and identification.

Travel insurance Information

Optional travel insurance is available and EverAfter Travel encourages travelers to consider purchasing insurance as it can not only cover things like trip delays/cancellations, but it can also provide medical coverage while you're traveling just in case something happens - this is very important because your own medical insurance typically does not include international coverage. 

You can click here to review all of the insurance option details for Allianz Travel Insurance and get a quote if you are interested.

When you are attempting to get a quote, the amount of insurance needed is typically the total value amount of your vacation package.  Also, you will need to enter F030702 as the Travel Agency ID (ACCAM#) when prompted.   

 

*IMPORTANT things to note about Allianz Travel Insurance:

-You can call and speak to one of the insurance agent experts directly if you have any policy questions at 1.866.884.3556

-You can only add Cancel Anytime coverage on the date of deposit

-Cancel Anytime insurance is not available for purchase online - you will need to call and speak to an insurance agent directly

-Coverage for pre-existing conditions only applies if insurance is purchased WITHIN 14 days of deposit 

-You need to update your insurance coverage immediately for any trip components added at a later date that you want covered e.g. flights

-There are several policy types to choose from and the policy price is determined by the following: the amount of insurance you need, your age(s) and the specific policy type you choose 

Current COVID-19 Protocols (subject to change):

-Effective 3/4/21, each passenger 12 years or older will need to take a PCR or antigen COVID-19 test within 3 days of departure and present the negative test results at the airport to check in for their flight.

EXAMPLE: If your departure date is 12/9/21, then the earliest you can take the test is 12/6/21 (click here for a test date calculator tool).

-----It is important that you read the specific testing requirement details available at https://www.visitjamaica.com/travelauthorization/test-req/
