The answer to “is the Jordan Pass worth it?” Is an easy one: Yes.
Feel free to stop reading here and head over to the official website to buy now… Or, if you need a little more information or convincing, read on.
What is the Jordan Pass?
The Jordan Pass gives you free entry to 37 sights in Jordan and waives the tourist entry Visa fee (60 USD). The only conditions are that you need to purchase before you arrive, and stay for at least 3 consecutive nights in Jordan.
Just make sure you have the PDF either printed or on your phone when you land and go through customs, and for your entry to all sights.
How much does the Jordan Pass cost?
There are 3 options to choose from, the price just differs depending on how many days you wish to visit Petra. All listed attractions & advantages are included in all three of the Pass options.
1 day visit to Petra: 70 JD 2 days visit to Petra: 75 JD 3 days visit to Petra: 80JD
DID YOU KNOW: If you purchase a 3 day visit to Petra, your 4th visit is free?
What attractions are included in the Jordan Pass?
There are 37 attractions in total which are free if you have the Jordan Pass including Wadi Rum and Petra - below are a few and you can check them all out here.
So, still not convinced it’s worth it?
Even if you were travelling to Jordan to see only Petra you will still save money with it. I’ll do the maths for you:
40 JD: Visa on arrival to Jordan
50 JD: 1 day entry ticket for Petra
= 90 JD. The basic Jordan Pass is 70 JD.
And of course, the more sites you visit, the more it’s worth it!
The only reasons why you shouldn’t get a Jordan Pass
If you are not eligible for a visa on arrival, or if you are spending less than 3 consecutive nights in Jordan.
