Now that you’ve booked a vacation in St. John, it’s time to decide what to pack. Aside from the standard necessities you’d take on vacation, we have a few recommendations to help enhance your stay here. Continue reading to learn more from the team at St. John Car Rental.

What to Pack for a Vacation in St. John


Since some of the islands are small, your trips may require you to go the full length of St. John or St. Croix. For instance, you’ll want to have a reliable daypack to keep your belongings dry and secure while freeing up your hands. Utilize it if your adventure is more physically demanding, like climbing or hiking.

First Aid

It’s always wise to be ready for everything, and your safety should come first when it comes to planning. During a journey where multiple activities and geological sites are involved, a well-stocked first aid kit is a necessity – especially when traveling with kids. Be sure to include a small, lightweight case in your bag and carry it with you as you go about your day.

Wearable Wallet

Many travelers are hesitant to leave some of the most crucial paperwork in their bags, in their hotel rooms, or in any other place that isn’t directly on their person. With an RFID-blocking wearable wallet, you can carry your ID, cash, and other necessities without adding bulk to your person. If you desire even more security, they are also small enough to be hidden under a shirt or a jacket.

Small Charger

A portable charger/power bank is an excellent choice to pack for people looking for a way to keep their phones and other devices charged while they are on the go. It can offer your cell phone enough charge to last for hours on end and is small enough to take around in a purse or pocket. Never again be without access to a phone!
