St. Croix scooter rentals and bicycle rentals
There are no places to rent a scooter on island, and that’s probably a good thing because scooters and bicycles are not safe to ride in the Virgin Islands. Many roads do not have shoulders and are not wide enough for passing, have lots of potholes and other dangers. A friend once said “a scooter is fine as long as your affairs are in order, you have take out a good medical insurance policy, and you are covered with air ambulance coverage as well”. Since renting a whole car is not so much more, so why take the risk?

Car Rental St Croix FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Is there a minimum age requirement to rent a car in St. Croix?
Yes. You must be at least 25 years old to rent a car in St. Croix USVI. Some agencies will rent to 23 and 24 year olds for an additional insurance fee.
Do I need car insurance in St Croix?
Yes you need insurance and it can be a bit tricky. Many agencies will ask you to present the car insurance policy you use back home to see if you’re covered in the USVI. You also will normally need to use a major credit card that offers car insurance coverage. Be certain to plan ahead and clarify this, or you might face a nasty surprise on your holiday.
Also note that USVI law mandates compulsory liability insurance. Make sure your credit card covers this otherwise you’ll have to pay extra to get it from the local car rental agency. Read more here on why do you need mandatory insurance on a rentals car in St. Croix (pdf).
What do I need for a St Croix car rental?
As of this latest 2023 update , most car rental agencies require:
- valid driver’s license (and a passport if you are non-US citizen or resident)
- major credit card (some ask to verify that it provided collision / damage coverage valid in the USVI). Some St. Croix car rental agencies will accept a debit card if you provide a declaration page from your home auto insurance policy.
- exact name match on the driver’s license and credit/debit card
- additional drivers must also be present and with a valid license.
- local address where you are staying on St. Croix
What is the credit card policy to rent a car?
Most agencies are similar in that they require a major credit card like MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and DiscoverCard. A minimum authorization of $300-500 or an amount equal to the price of the rental, whichever is greater, is held on the card. This is usually a hold, not a charge, and will be released at the end of the rental, assuming there are no outstanding charges. You can choose to pay by cash if there are no damages to the vehicle upon return.
If using a debit card, the agency may either place a hold or immediately charge the card and receive payment. If a hold, it is typically larger than the hold on a credit card.
Can I rent a car with a debit card?
As explained above, it is possible with some agencies to get a St. Croix rental car using a debit card, but you will need to present a car insurance policy which is accepted by the car agency for coverage in St. Croix, or take their daily collision wavier as well as charge an additional deposit on top of the cost of the rental (often $1000). The deposit will be returned at the end of the rental if all is OK with the car.
Always clarify details in advance, surprises are never fun!
Should I consider a Jeep Rental in St. Croix?
The roads are not great but most people drive in St Croix without a Jeep. They’re more expensive and usually not necessary. But if you like the feel of riding high, then go for a St. Croix jeep rental.

Can I drive my vehicle off-road?
Clarify the details with your rental agency. Most car rentals do not allow off-road driving, even for Jeeps and other 4×4 vehicles.
What is Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)?
Collision Damage Waiver is a waiver of financial responsibility for the renter for a damaged vehicle. It is NOT insurance; however, in some instances your liability would be reduced to a $500 deductible. There is an option during the reservation process to add the CDW.
