Club Mobay at Sangster Montego Bay Airport Jamaica

What is this Club Mobay Jamaica travelers keep talking about? How can you be in the know on the airport lounge experience celebrities like Ryan Gossling and 50 Cent are in on? Below we will break down what Club Mobay is, what is included, and when and how to book.

In our humble opinion, Club Mobay is worth every penny! It changed our Jamaican experience and set a new standard for our vacations. We don’t travel to Jamaica without it.

We love Club Mobay so much that we ask if we could partner with them and they said yes! All links are official Club Mobay links to help you get all your answers and have the same amazing experience we get. 

What is Club Mobay?

Club Mobay is both a VIP airport experience and a private airport lounge available at Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport in Jamaica. There is a sister location at Jamaica’s Kingston Airport called Club Kingston.

Like any international airport, your experience arriving into a new country vs departing it are different.

The Club Mobay Arrival and Club Mobay Departure options reflect these differences to give you the best possible experience each time you’re in the airport. Each experience has its own benefits and pricing.

Travelers can book both the arrivals and departure lounges together or separately. There is no discount for booking together or individually.

Club Mobay Arrival Lounge Experience

The Club Mobay Arrival Lounge experiences considers the immigration and customs process required upon arrival, as well as a lounge experience while you wait for your transportation. You will be a VIP through it all!

Arrivals Lounge

What to Expect

When you book the Club Mobay Arrival Lounge, a Club Mobay representative will meet you at your gate upon arrival. The representative will be holding a Club Mobay sign with your name on it.

Meet Escort

Your personal representative will collect your passports and customs forms, then walk you to immigration for processing.

Benefit 1: Personal VIP Escort

This is where your Club Mobay Experience truly begins.  Club Mobay Arrival Lounge guests do not stand in the immigration line with other arrivals.

There is a separate Club Mobay only line which is no longer than six people, including yourself. It is often empty, putting you first in line!

When you reach immigration, your passport will be scanned and you may be asked the tradition border patrol questions by immigration before being allowed to enter the luggage area after. A quick process lasting moments.

The immigration line for non-Club Mobay guests ranges between 25 minutes to 50 min. The average we’ve seen is around 30-40 minutes.

Benefit 2: Fast Track Through Immigration!  Club Mobay Arrival: Approx. 5 minutes. Everyone Else: 20 mins- 1 hour

After you pass through immigration, your Club Mobay representative will have a luggage cart ready for your bags so you don’t have to carry them around. They will also push the cart for you- remember, VIP treatment!

After collecting your bags, you will arrive at customs. Like with immigration, there is a separate Club Mobay only line where you will cut in front of non-Club Mobay travelers.

Those without Club Mobay will gather their own bags and carry them to customs where they will stand in a short line. The customs line for non-Club Mobay guests is often 2-4 sets of people deep, plus the Club Mobay people getting to cut the line.

Benefit 3: Fast Track Through Customs! Club Mobay Arrival: Approx. 2-3 minutes. Everyone Else: Approx. 10-15 minutes

While the amount of time in line through immigrations and customs varies based on season and arrival times, most Club Mobay arrivals are through both immigration and customs in about 10 minutes total. The process for non-Club Mobay arrivals is around 40 minutes- 1 hour.

Club Mobay Arrivals Lounge

Lounge Kingston

Being a Club Mobay Arrival guest just saved you half if not more time at Immigrations and Customs. What are you going to do with this time? Hang out in the amazing VIP lounge!

After you pass immigrations and customs, your personal Club Mobay representative will answer any additional questions you may have, show you how you how to access your shuttle transportation to your resort, and then they will walk you to the private Club Mobay Arrivals lounge.

Benefit 4: All Inclusive VIP Lounge! Club Mobay Lounge : All Inclusive, food, drinks, A/C and comfy seating. Everyone Else: Standing outside, or waiting on a bus or shuttle

Club Mobay Lounge access includes unlimited food, drinks, and open bar while you wait for your shuttle departure. The lounge is modern and air conditioned with plenty of seating.

While you are enjoying the start to your vacation sipping on tropical drinks and munching on delicious snacks in the Club Mobay Arrivals Lounge, all travelers who did not book Club Mobay arrival are either still in line at customs and immigrations, or they are sitting in the parked shuttles outside in the parking lot waiting for other passengers.

Shared transportation buses and shuttles will wait for all anticipated guests to clear immigration and customs before departing. The result is travelers waiting around till their transit is ready to depart.

With the exception of the Sandals Arrival Lounge, non- Club Mobay travelers do not have a lounge or air-conditioned area to lounge at while waiting for their transportation. The terminal is not air conditioned (except the lounges) and the only seating available is a small outdoor bar along the parking lot.

Club Mobay guests will get to relax with drinks and snacks in the air conditioned Arrivals Lounge.

How Much Time Will You have in Club Mobay’s Arrival Lounge?

The answer to how long you will be in the lounge varies based how many people are sharing the same shuttle to your resort. Your shuttle will wait for other resort guests to complete their immigration and customs processing. Usually 30 minutes- 45 mins.

If you booked private transportation, your ride will need around 5-10 minutes to depart, and your driver will wait for you if you want to enjoy the lounge a bit longer.

While not guaranteed, Club Mobay guests have been known to get to take their drinks to-go for the ride to their resort.

Booking Club Mobay Arrival Lounge

Why we love Club Mobay Arrival: We save time, have less airport and immigration hassle, and have a luxury experience to start our Jamaican trip! Why wait to get to get the resort for the vacation to begin?

Pricing & Fine Print

There are a limited number of spots each day for Club Mobay Arrival to preserve the fast track through immigration and customs, and you must book at least 48 hours before your flight for security reasons.

I recommend booking as soon as you have your flight information to avoid a sellout. It sells out often during Jamaica’s busy season.

Club Mobay pricing does not change closer to your travel dates, so there is no benefit in waiting. There are no last-minute deals, and Club Mobay does not offer coupons or promo codes. If an agent tells you otherwise, do not trust them.

Club Mobay Departure Lounge

The Club Mobay Departure Lounge experience considers the security lines required at departure, as well as a lounge experience while you wait for your flight. It’s the perfect way to keep the vacation going after you’ve the resort. Frozen drinks included!

What to Expect

Upon arrival at the airport, check in with your airline and check your bags like normal, then head to the Club Mobay booth. It’ll be between your airline’s check in and airport security.

Check in and they will escort you to the Club Mobay Departure VIP security line. This line is a designated metal detector and screening line for Club Mobay Departure guests only. It’s your own Jamaican TSA PreCheck, but even faster!

Benefit 1: Fast Track through Airport Security

Once through security, you will be escorted to the Club Mobay Departure Lounge. Unlike many airline departure lounges, Club Mobay takes the lounge experience to a different level.

First, Montego Bay’s Sangster Airport is not air conditioned, but the Club Mobay Departure Lounge is.

Benefit 2: Air Conditioned VIP Lounge Access

Upon arrival to the lounge, you will be escorted to your own reserved seating area. No circling the lounge to find a spot or having to sit apart from the rest of your party due to overcrowding. Your group will be seated together whenever possible.

What’s more? You don’t have to worry about getting up to use the restroom and someone stealing your seat. You have designated VIP seating! 

Benefit 3: Reserved Seating For Your Party

There are also two lounges- one for adults only and an all ages one. Your party will be seated in the appropriate lounge.

Couples and business travelers won’t have to worry about kids in their area. Families will be in a family friendly setting. Both lounges are modern, spacious, and air conditioned.

Now that you’re cozy in your seat, a server will come over and ask what you’d like to Bring you your drinkdrink.

Club Mobay Departure Lounges access includes unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The open bar includes frozen drinks like daiquiris, piña coladas, as well as traditional cocktails and beer.

Unlike regular airport lounges, a server will get your drinks for you at Club Mobay. You don’t have to get up. Keep lounging. You are on vacation after all!

Benefit 4: Open Bar with a Designated Server

Club Mobay Departure Lounge also includes unlimited food. The selection of food is not full entrees, but rather a wide selection of smaller options. Food options include both hot and cold items ranging from salads and small bites, to pastas and desserts.

All food items are available a la carte in the lounge area. I personally found the food selection to have more variety, higher quality, and better maintained than most airline lounges.

Benefit 5: Unlimited Food

How long will you be in the Club Mobay Departure Lounge?

Jamaican travel guidelines recommended travelers arrive to the airport at least 2 hours before their flight. Your resort’s shuttle will aim to have you at the airport around 2-2.5 hours before departure to comply with these guidelines.

The result is most travelers spending about 1.5+ hours in the Club Mobay Departure Lounge.

How to Book Club Mobay Departure Lounge

The price for the Club Mobay Arrival Experience is $30 for Adults and $20 for Children 2-12. Infants under 2 are free.

I recommend booking as soon as you have your flight information.
