Top tips for hiring a car in U.S. Virgin Islands

It is generally recommended to rent a car in the US Virgin Islands, unless you are staying in one of the larger towns. Taking cabs can be costly, and a rental car allows maximum flexibility for visiting beaches and hilltop settlements. The Virgin Islands National Park on the island of St. John is also best explored by rental car.
While most of the islands are easily accessible by a sedan, visitors planning to spend a lot of time on St. John may prefer to rent a four-by-four to tackle the rugged, hilly terrain. Although more expensive than a compact car, this will allow you to explore more and to run into fewer problems, especially during the rainy season.
By law, any child under the age of five must be placed in a child restraint when riding in the front seat of a vehicle in the US Virgin Islands. In the back seat, children ages three to five may wear just a safety belt, but a booster seat is recommended. Children under the age of 12 are required to have a seatbelt on at all times. Most rental agencies can provide baby and child car seats for an additional fee—for example, $10 per day at Budget.
If you’re planning to visit more than one island when you rent a car in the US Virgin Islands, there is a car ferry (known locally as a barge) that travels several times a day between Red Hook on St. Thomas and Enighed Pond on St. John. Weather conditions may stop the service from running, so it is important to be aware of this if you’re returning your car to the other island. Expect to pay around $30 for a one-way trip and $50 for there and back, plus a $3 port fee collected in St. Thomas.
