St. John Vacation Tips

Does cold winter weather have you searching online for warmer climates? Are you scouring the Internet for the perfect spring break destination, hoping that planning a trip will propel you forward through the chilly months? Well, look no further than St. John, a part of the U.S. Virgin Islands. St John may be just what you need to thaw away winter and rejuvenate your mind.

In case you need a little help getting here, our staff at St. John Car Rental wants to share a few tips for planning your next St. John getaway.

1. Start planning early.

If you’re thinking about spring break in January, you have plenty of time to put together all your vacation details. That’s great! You don’t want to delay planning because you’ll end up paying higher prices or missing out on the Jeep rental or event you really had your eyes on. Plus, by making plans early, you can be on the lookout for special offers.

2. Get to know the island.

You can find many St. John resources online or at a local travel agency. Do some digging, and make a list of what you’d like to do, places to eat, and what you’d like to see on the island. That way, you can prioritize your time and resources.

3. Set a vacation budget.

St. John offers so much to vacationers that it would be easy to blow through your savings account. However, if you need to return with some money still in your account, we recommend that you set a budget early on and stick to it.

4. Choose your friends wisely.

What type of spring break experience do you want to have? The friends or family members you choose to bring along can affect the type of getaway you will have. Therefore, think long and hard before making reservations.

5. Choose a local car rental company.

St. John is the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, making it an intimate setting for rest, relaxation, and reconnecting with friends or a loved one. We recommend that you avoid any larger car rental companies but choose someone local—like St. John Car Rental—who can truly show you that small-island vibe you seek. Plus, we’re located right off the ferry dock, making it easy for you to find us once on the island.
