When you’re arriving on an island like St. John, you’ll need a way to get from one place on your itinerary to the next. That’s why renting a car is truly your best option; it gives you the most freedom. We know that travelers need to factor in the daily costs of car rentals into their travel budget, so we at St. John Car Rental wanted to share our tips for how to get the best car rental discount in St. John.
1) Book in Advance
If you know exactly when you’ll be visiting St. John, then rent a car for those dates as soon as possible. Our SUV and Jeep rentals tend to get reserved well in advance. Because our company has a great reputation on the island, we will often get calls a year ahead of time, so there’s really no such thing as too early when planning a trip.
2) Travel out of Season
Because renting a car for peak season is in such demand, we recommend traveling to St. John out of season when possible. Off-season is from June 1 to October 31. If you travel in those months, you’ll receive a cheaper daily rate on car rentals. You may find that everything else for your trip, such as hotel rates and airfare, is cheaper during this time frame too.
3) Consider Additional Costs
Not all car rental companies in St. John are created equal. St. John Car Rental has been in the business since 1974, so we’ve built our reputation as a trustworthy source of car rentals. Some car rental companies promote a daily rate for a particular model, but then tack on hidden fees at checkout. We’re always upfront in our policies about additional payments you may select, such as our Collision Damage Waiver or Loss Damage Waiver.
At St. John Car Rental, we will always go the extra mile to make sure you have a well-maintained car rental at a price that fits your budget. Call us at (340) 776-6103 to check for current specials, or reserve online now.
