    Have you used/would you have no qualms about using your credit card at Sangsters airport? ie: liquor store or boutique to buy tshirts

    My credit card info was stolen from the Margaritaville store at Sangster. I had it happen in Negril once, so I quit using it in Jamaica altogether except for the resort and the airport. Margaritaville was the only place I used it besides the resort, so I am assuming it was there and not the resort. Luckily, my credit card company (Visa) has a very good fraud department and refused the charges. You need to contact your credit card company before you go out of the country and tell them your dates. Then they will refuse any charges made outside the US outside of those dates. I learned that the hard way second time we went to Jamaica when I tried to use the credit card at the CSS Tour Desk and they refused to approve it.

    Always use, never an issue. Plus if something were to happen, your credit card company should handle the problem.

    We've had no problems using it at the liquor stores. I have heard of problems in the past with people using them at some of the smaller stores.

    Yes used credit cards at Mobay Airport lots of times over many years without problem. The only time I ever had fraud issues when using my card abroad was using it in the USA, but the card company repaid me.

    We've used ours before at the liquor store with no problems. Can't speak for any of the other stores though since we didn't use it anywhere else.

    Sure, it's a lot safer than Target.

    I always use my credit card for purchases at the airport, and have never had a problem. We also s o make sure to use our card that doesn't charge a foreign transaction fee. Have a great trip!

    We've been to Jamaica 22 times & have probably used our c.c. at the airport every time, at different stores (for coffee, souvenirs, Margaritaville, etc...), & luckily have never had a problem.

    Just be sure to notify your bank the dates you will be there so they won't decline charges for being out of country and also so after you leave, your card will be declined by your bank as it would be a fraud alert.

    We use cash only, it is not worth the risk. The only time I pull out my card is at check in.
