One of the things that many visitors ask when they are planning travel to St. John is, “Should I rent a Jeep?” Depending on the type of vacation you are looking to have, typically the answer our team at St. John Car Rental gives is, “Yes!” Renting a Jeep to get around on St. John gives you flexibility to see all of the beauty and wonder this island has to offer. Many of the beaches are in the Virgin Islands National Park, away from lodging options; so to reach them, the best bet is to drive.
FlexibilityThe whole point of visiting an exotic locale is to explore! With world-class restaurants and bars, beautiful beaches, and an ever-evolving events schedule, you’re definitely not going to want to just stay at your hotel. And while there are taxi options to take you from Cruz Bay to many of the beaches, getting back can sometimes be a challenge. Also, depending on the number of people in your party, taking taxis from beach to beach can get expensive. Aside from taxis, there are different parts of the island that offer different experiences which could be missed out on without access to your own Jeep.
DependabilityDue to their ability to handle the rugged natural roads of the island, Jeeps are a popular choice of vehicle for visitors and residents alike. However, if you do have an issue, renting from a company already on the island is a wise choice. That way, customer service is there to assist you, and you don’t have to depend on the sometimes inconsistent schedule of the car barge to get you moving again.
Our Jeeps aren’t just ideal rental choices because of their dependable nature – they’re also fun to drive! Jeeps possess their own unique quality that can turn the most mundane drive into an exhilarating adventure. Although they can handle several different types of terrain, please remember to keep your Jeep rental on the road to maintain the island’s untouched, picturesque beauty.
