Car Rental for weeklong St John stay

Jump to last reply

An option suggested by a condo owner in St John is to rent the car in St Thomas airport and take the auto barge over to St. John, for the following reasons:

1. Save cab fare to ferry. Taxis charge aprx $13 per person plus baggage to take you to the ferry, then the ferry also charges on a per-person & baggage basis, which could add up for a family of 4 (we plan to only take 1 bag apiece).

2. Auto barge charges per vehicle, with no additional charge for people & their baggage.

3. Having a car in St. Thomas allows you to stop at a grocery store to get provisions there where it may be cheaper instead of in St John. Of course, they have to be non-perishable items as it may be a couple hours before you can get the items into a cooler.

4. Auto rentals are cheaper in St. Thomas and most allow you to ferry your car over to St John.

The idea sounds intriguing but I haven't seen anyone mention this in other posts. What do you frequent travelers to St. John do? I haven't checked every agency yet, but I'm not necessarily seeing cheaper rentals in St. Thomas. Also, the condo owner said we don't need a 4WD, but that may be more a reflection of his island activities.

Question to folks who like to snorkel & hike -- do you need 4WD to access your favorite beaches or are they accessible in a regular sedan? Recommendations of rental agencies you've used are appreciated.

Thanks!
