Travel, while fun and exciting, can also be a stressful ordeal. There are so many arrangements to be made and so much packing to do that you may find yourself dreading your trip! However, at St. John Car Rental, we believe that travel doesn’t have to be stressful because we make renting a car easy! Follow these four tips to make your next trip to St. John a breeze!

How to Rent a Car Like a Pro

1. Book Early

Some travelers believe that booking last minute is worth the risk to potentially save some money. However, as there is no guarantee that it will work out, we don’t recommend it. During busy seasons, rentals go fast so you could find yourself without a ride. If you book in advance, you will know for sure that you have secured a car rental.

2. Look for Deals

If you take your time and shop around, you can often find deals on rentals. St. John Car Rental offers regular specials, so be sure to check online and ask about these offers before booking.

3. Choose the Right Car

Often, people don’t stop to consider the type of trip they are taking when they look to rent a vehicle. Before you make the reservation, consider how many passengers you’ll have, how much luggage you’ll bring, and what type of terrain you’ll be driving on. Because St. John is known for its beautiful landscapes and beaches, traveling from one island to another is best done in a Jeep.

We have several different models to fit your needs and price point. You can choose from a two-door Jeep Wrangler that has a hard top, A/C, and 4-wheel drive, or a Jeep Cherokee that comes with luxuries like a backup camera and Bluetooth. All our Jeeps can comfortably accommodate four to five passengers.

4. Read the Rental Agreement

Finally, don’t forget to read the fine print before signing on the dotted line. If you don’t know what you are signing, you could incur additional fees for not following procedure. Concerning yourself with these details might seem mundane, but you can save yourself time and money by knowing what you are signing.
