Beware of overbooking @ RDMB

Be careful, they overbook and send you to another resort even if you don't like it!! We went on Mar. 2 and were sent to a sandels Inn down the road. Also, do not use your credit card at all in jamaica!!! My husband used his at the airport and someone got the numbers and bought a bunch of stuff on the internet!! Beware!!

wow...bumping to Sandals now? Most of us are very aware of the bumping situation. I hope you enjoyed your vaca regardless.

I have used my credit card in Ja too many times to count. Perhaps I was just lucky? IRIE

I also have never had a problem using my Visa card in Jamaica. Sorry to hear this happened to you.

Were you asked to go to Sandals or given no choice? Were you the only people told to go? How was the Sandals Inn? I guess it has just reopened. Bumping is not unusual for RDMB.

Who did you book your vacation through?
