St. John Car RentalFor months, you’ve been looking forward to your trip to St. John. You imagine island living at its best: Lazy days on the beach, drinks by the pool, and slow morning walks along the shore. It’s the picture of perfection, and you don’t want to put a damper on your experience by getting a sub-par car rental. To find just the right car, truck, or Jeep for your time on the island, take these tips from our crew at St. John Car Rental.

1. Gather recommendations.

If you have friends or family members who have traveled to St. John or the Virgin Islands in the past, ask them about their car rental experience. Get the names of the good companies (discard the bad), and use that as your starting point. If you don’t know anyone who recently traveled to the island, you can also read customer reviews or travel websites to get some firsthand feedback from other customers. Be sure to keep us on your list as well! St. John Car Rental has a rich history as the #1 rental company on the island since we first opened our doors in 1974.

2. Do your research.

Don’t just take the first recommendation that comes across your desk. Get online, and find out about the various rental companies on St. John. Find out what types of cars they rent, check out whether they have special discounts, and get a feel for their overall professionalism and customer service. Don’t leave any stone unturned. Hopefully, this step will allow you to narrow down your options to a couple of companies to consider.

3. Give ’em a call.

Call the rental company, and ask questions about their service, rentals, and rates. A phone call gives you a feel for their level of customer service; plus, you can find out about their availability and rental policies.

4. Make the reservation.

While you want to make an informed decision, don’t wait too long—especially during prime vacation season. We want you to be sure to get a great car, Jeep, or SUV to explore the island, but if you wait to make your reservation, you may miss out on the right car or a great rate.

At St. John Car Rental, we offer the best Jeeps and SUV rentals and most competitive rates on the island. To find out more or to make a reservation, contact us today at (340) 776-6103, or book online.
