KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in St Vincent

  • Car rentals in St. Vincent will give you freedom and flexibility with your trip, be more convenient, and allow you to fully experience all that the island has to offer. There is very limited public transportation on the island. The bus is often unreliable and can take a long time to reach your destination. Having a car gives you the freedom to explore the island at your own pace. Some attractions are more remote, like Dark View Falls and Black Point Tunnel, so driving will give you the opportunity to visit these places. You can also enjoy the scenic views along Queens Drive.
  • Flying into St. Vincent, you’ll arrive at Argyle International Airport (SVD). Here, you will find Avis, which offers a wide selection of different vehicles. The rental desk is located in the arrivals hall after you leave baggage claim. They are open Sunday to Saturday from 8 am - 7 pm. Car rentals in St. Vincent are also available in the capital of Kingstown, where several rental agencies are located. To rent a vehicle, you’ll need a temporary local license, which you can get from the local police station in Kingstown or at the Revenue Office in Port Elizabeth.
  • Driving in St. Vincent offers an exciting experience characterized by winding roads through lush landscapes. In general, the driving pace is relaxed on the island but be prepared for the occasional aggressive driver. Road signage might be limited in some places, so having a navigation device or GPS can be helpful. There is a strict, hand-free policy while driving, so have all GPS programmed before you leave.
  • The biggest challenge you might encounter driving your car rental in St. Vincent is driving on the left side of the road. This may take some time to get used to. Many roads on the island are narrow and winding, with steep inclines and sharp curves. Reduce your speed and use caution in these areas. In some areas, road signage might be limited or unclear, making navigation challenging, especially for visitors. The island's hilly terrain can result in steep climbs and descents, which might be demanding for vehicles with less power.
  • Book your car hire in St Vincent at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in St Vincent are around 29% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in St. Vincent?

    When considering St. Vincent car rentals, we recommend choosing a compact SUV or small sedan is highly recommended for driving on the island's diverse terrain. These vehicles offer a balance of comfort and maneuverability on both paved roads and the occasional uneven surface. Given the winding roads and varying altitudes, a car with good suspension and adequate ground clearance will provide a smoother ride. Given the hilly terrain on the island, having a vehicle with more power will be useful. Compact vehicles also make parking more convenient, especially in urban areas where spaces may be small.

  • What’s the speed limit in St. Vincent?

    Car rentals in St. Vincent provide travelers with the opportunity to explore the island's beauty. The speed limit varies depending on the area. In urban areas, the speed limit typically ranges from 30 to 40 km/h (18 to 25 mph) to ensure pedestrian safety and traffic control. On rural roads, the limit can be around 60 to 80 km/h (37 to 50 mph), while highways might allow speeds up to 100 km/h (62 mph). Be aware of posted speeds, as limits can change due to special events or road construction.

  • Where are the best places to park in St. Vincent?

    In the capital city of Kingstown, look for public parking lots, like Heritage Square and the Bay Street area. Hotels and resorts will all have their own designated parking areas. Popular beaches like Villa Beach and Indian Bay usually offer parking spaces nearby, but they can fill up quickly on weekends. Nearly all parking in St. Vincent is free unless you are near a major tourist attraction or there is a special event going on. In some areas, you might find street parking, but be sure to follow local parking regulations and signs.

My reservation showed an amount due of only $574.20, but I was charged $839.30. So I am not happy with the extra charges of $265.10 (over 46% increase). Also, the vehicle was very old and had over 140,000 miles on it. All in all it was very expensive for what I received.

Cons:

Never got to get the car. The agent left early so I was forced to rent a car from another company at the airport.

It was not clear I would need to refuel before drop off and the prices for the refuel were stupid, even with today’s current climate.

We had to cancel our trip due to COVID and Sixth refused to refund our money or even a portion per their policy. They simply responded with "we know this isn't the answer you want however, we're not refunding any of your payment due to sound business practices". Customer service is a joke as it's basically non existent and forced to exchange emails. Terrible experience and I would never rent from this joke of a so called rental car company. Truly horrible. Do yourself a favor and avoid.

Very friendly staff. Prompt service and clean car. The car I chose was not available at the time of pickup so I had an up charge for the first 3 days but liked the SUV so much I kept it the whole time.

Traveler note - Important to know: Thrifty pickups are in the parking lot of the airport, they are not in the terminal itself. You can learn this by asking around (as we did) and it's not a long walk, but it would have been helpful if Thrifty let us know in advance simply from a comfort perspective. The woman who helped us with the rental pickup couldn't have been nicer. The car was good -- be uber-cautious about driving: the pot holes in St Lucia will do more than just rattle your teeth if you hit one straight on.
