School has started, the leaves are starting to change, and pumpkin spice is everywhere you turn: fall is here! Sometimes with the busyness of starting the new school year, fall break can really sneak up on you. You may be discouraged that you don’t have the time to plan a trip for fall break. However, with the help of these tips from our team at St. John Car Rental, you can still plan a great family fall break getaway.

Fall Break Trip to St. John

Set a Budget

St. John offers so much to vacationers that it would be easy to blow through your savings account. However, if you intend to return home with some money remaining in your account, we recommend that you set a budget first and then stick to it.

Do Your Research

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. Also, by doing some research, you may be able to find some good deals and special offers on hotels or jeep rentals.

Look into Combo Deals

Booking combo deals that offer both airfare and hotel at a discounted package price are ideal if you are looking last-minute. Not only are you getting a good deal, but you don’t have to worry about looking for accommodation separately from your flight dates and making sure they line up. Combo deals are also quick and easy, and generally don’t have much planning involved, so you can focus on getting excited for your trip!

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 family. We recommend that you avoid any larger car rental companies, but instead 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 you’re on the island. Want to find out more about us?
