Terminal Information – Arriving
You can reach downtown Amman by taxi, express bus, or hire car. Taxis from the airport to the city are fixed rate at JOD 20* (just under £20). The Airport Express bus runs every half hour from 6am to 6pm, and once an hour from 6pm to midnight. Tickets are JOD 3.25 (just over £3.20). You need to buy them from the official booth. It takes just under an hour to reach Tabarbour bus station in the city. If you'd rather drive yourself, remember to compare car hire at Amman Airport with Skyscanner.
We recommend arriving at Heathrow Airport around two hours before your flight. You need a valid passport to fly to Amman, and it needs to be valid for six months after your entry into Jordan. British citizens need a visa to visit Jordan, but you can one on arrival at the airport. Note that this costs JOD 40* (just under £40) and you need to pay for it in the local currency. There's a currency exchange before customs, but we recommend bringing the appropriate money with you just in case. This will be valid for one month, but can be extended for six months once you arrive.
