Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Christiansted 
Verified travelerJan 2024
Very small airport. The left hand side of the road is used for driving. The cats are all American standard so left side of vehicle. New combination for Me.. took a few spins to get used to it.
Verified travelerFeb 2024
It was easier than we thought. Just drive slow/ lots of pot holes in roads!
DJul 2023
Most of the roads need to be re-paved. The drivers are very courteous. Remember to keep to the left side of the road.
jaredJul 2023
Avoid Avis and go to Hertz. Several of the locals made this recommendation as well.
Verified travelerJun 2023
Driving in the left side of the road can be tricky if you’re not used to it.

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was extremely rude. Pickup was fine until we drove out of the parking lot and noticed the tire was flat. Went back to attendant who said "there was nothing he could do"... took a lot of arguing -including being yelled at by staff- to just get them to change our car to another one, which is what they should've done from the beginning. We will never rent with Budget again.

Cons:

Better customer service. The car was also disgustingly dirty on the inside and smelled terrible. This was unacceptable in normal times and particularly during COVID times.

What a great little car, Kia Rio that they rented me for 66 days. Easy to drive,(even while driving on left), The Back-up Camera was a great feature, easy to park and plenty of room in back seat & trunk.

Honestly, my whole experience with this rental was positive, just what one looks for in a rental car.+++++

Pros:

The staff at the counter was horrible. My reservation confirmed a 10am pick for 1 day. I was finally able to speak with Diane bout 11am or shortly after she mentioned that my reservation was canceled as a no show and I might not receive the type of vehicle I reserved bc they don’t have any cars.

Cons:

I ended up getting a car after much scrutiny. My rental was checked out at 12:13 and bc I had to wait to show her my receipt that gas was purchased it increase the time of return to 2:13. Diane charged be an entire day.

Pickup/drop off is super easy, quick, and right at the airport. We know this because we had to return one rental car half way through the trip due to the electrical system going haywire. We were experts by the time we returned the second car, which was having transmission problems. Not sure if it’s a Hertz thing or a STX thing, but the cars are seriously abused.

Reserved a month before. Confirmed via phone twice in the week before. Upon arrival I was told ‘ we don’t have any cars’. Not sorry, not we might have one tomorrow, no attempt to help in any way. The manager was in the back room and refused to speak with me. The woman at the counter, Laura, refused to help in any way. Worst customer experience I have ever had. DO NOT RENT from these people.
