    Default Club Mobay Pass...........

    what are the best options for getting these passes............online....travel agent....from resort ? We have never used them and consider them this year as we will be departing on a Sunday afternoon from MBJ to IAH....we arrive on a Thursday around 2 and I am thinking that might not require them as it is not as busy a travel day. I saw online ...a departure pass for $30 (including $5 discount) is this about the average price....or is the resort cheaper......
    We arrive May 8.....depart May 18......we have the TSA Pre Check passes to get through airline security.........those work great...would like to get thru customs and immigration a little quicker as well............so our main concern is avoiding lines...don't really care about the lounge itself as we usually end our trip at Margaritaville and Jimmy Buffett............cheeseburger in paradise !!

    Hmm. I think I'd go directly to the Mobay website. I haven't seen where they have a 5 dollar discount though. give us the link if you have it. I don't use it for departures actually. I don't know what the point of the departure is actually. I understand the arrival, as it's the whole "faster to the fun" thing. But departure, I never get.

    good luck!

    Cheers!

    "we arrive on a Thursday around 2 .." Don't waste your money. 15 minutres thru customs (make sure you fill out ALL 3 secionts of your immagration card "A", "B', & "C" sections) and you will be in Couples lounge enjoying a Red Stripe.

    We will be arriving on Sat. 5/3 @ 11:21. Would it be wise to book club mobay or do you think the crowd may be light? this will be our 1st time to Couples. Can you go into the couples lounge when you are departing?

    The Couples lounge is only for arrivals. You cannot get to it after going through security on the departure side. While not optimal, we just relax in one of the bars before our flight.

    I added it to my reservation with the resort simply because I did not want to provide my credit card to another business outside the USA (paranoid, but I have had issues in the past).

    We arrive Thursday, May 1 about 2:00. Here are the arrivals for this Thursday afternoon. We paid the $100 for the peace of mind. That's an extra 2.5% over what we already have invested in this trip.

    We have never used it...we usually fly I on a sat. We have had some wait times as long as an hour and sometimes with no line. You may not go into the couples lounge when departing

    We arrived at 3pm on a Thursday in March and got through customs faster than those using Club Mobay who for some reason were last off the plane and for info we paid $30 in resort for the departure which was charged to our room

    There is no Couples loung on the outgoing side. If you meant departing the airport after arriving, you can, and need to get to the Couples lounge to get your transportation to the resort.

    You'll love Couples Big Bob regardless of which one you're going to.

    We also arrive on 5/3 at 11:35. We used Club Mobay arrival service last year and don't regret it for a moment. We arrived about the same time last year with people standing in line to stand in line for immigration. We were through customs, checked in, downed two red stripes and headed for the bus and still had not seen anyone from our plane. We arrived at TI at 2:00 but did not see folks from our plane arriving at check in until about 5:00. I highly recommend it.

    WalZanne, We are going to couple Tower. My guess is we may end up on the same bus. I think for the peace of mind I'm going to book it.
    Thanks for every ones help.

    I am wondering the same thing. We arrive the same day, but in the early afternoon.

    I've been reading Club MoBay reviews on Tripadvisor. Some people swear by the service, others had significant complaints. Our main reason to consider the service would be to get through lines quicker. When I read about people getting through the regular lines faster than the "express" lines I wonder just how often that happens.

    It seems as if Club MoBay's success has led to a situation where there are sometimes more Club MoBay travelers arriving than "regular" travelers, so that the "express" lines are actually LONGER...or at least that is what some reviewers claim.

    based on what i'm seeing, Mobay will save the day. That's a lot of planes coming in all at once.
