Top tips for hiring a car in Saint Croix

  • When renting a car in Saint Croix, there are a few different vehicle models that are particularly convenient for the region. If you are visiting during the warmer months, you can always choose to rent a convertible so you can enjoy the sunshine. If you plan on engaging in some recreational activities, such as biking, kayaking, or even just going to the beach, you may wish to opt for an SUV or van so you can have enough room to store all of your equipment. When going on long road trips or driving in the mountains, consider renting a car with four-wheel drive.
  • If you will be visiting Saint Croix with your family, make sure that you are familiar with the area’s child car seat laws. All children under the age of 13 must be in the back seat at all times. If an infant weighs under 20 pounds, they must be in a rear-facing child car seat. Children that weigh between 20 and 40 pounds must be in an appropriate forward-facing car seat. Children that weigh between 40 and 80 pounds must always be in a booster seat.
  • To drive as safely as possible in Saint Croix, you will want to read up on the local speed limits. Take note of the fact that speed limits are in miles per hour. Because the island is primarily composed of roads that are narrow and curved, you will rarely find a street that has a speed limit of more than 35 mph. If you are near a school or in a residential area, the speed limit will likely be a maximum of 25 mph.
  • Although Saint Croix is a part of the US Virgin Islands and uses miles per hour, cars drive on the left-hand side of the road. This is a critical thing to keep in mind when navigating the island’s roads, as accidentally driving on the right-hand side of the road can have disastrous consequences.
  • Book your car hire in Saint Croix at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Saint Croix are around 7% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • Should I rent a car in Saint Croix?

    Because many parts of the island are rural and are not necessarily connected to public transportation, renting your own vehicle is one of the best ways to travel to different neighborhoods and see all of the sights on your to-do list. Plus, having a rental car will allow you to visit the island at your own pace and schedule. If you are going to go to the beach, snorkel, kayak, swim, or cycle, having your own car will make it easy to transport everything you need.

  • What is driving like in Saint Croix?

    Driving in Saint Croix is a particular experience, due to how unique the island and its roads are. For example, although most roads have two lanes, they are known for being quite narrow, resulting in many individuals driving slowly and cautiously. In general, drivers are known for being friendly, and they will often wave at other drivers and stop to allow cars to enter traffic. In addition, many back roads are quite steep, so you will want to proceed with caution when driving on these as well.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Saint Croix?

    If you would like to rent a car in Saint Croix, keep in mind that you are required to be a minimum of 21 years old. However, there are some rental agencies that will ask customers to be a minimum of 25 years old. If you are under the age of 25 years old, many agencies will require you to pay a young driver’s fee for the duration of your rental period on a daily basis.
