STX airport car rentals

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 Rentals 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 here.  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.  

What do I need for a car rental in St Croix?

Most car rental agencies require:

  1. valid driver’s license (and a passport if you are non-US citizen or resident)
  2. 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.  
  3. exact name match on the driver’s license and credit/debit card
  4. additional drivers must also be present and with a valid license.
  5. 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!

Is there a fee for additional drivers?

Usually yes.  Spouses are often exempted but they must have the same last name on their license as the main driver.  

Do you deliver the rental car?  

Most St. Croix car rental agencies will deliver vehicles upon request.

What if I have a late flight / early flight?  

Most agencies have booths at St. Croix airport which are open during working flying hours.  If your flight is delayed, you will need to contact the rental agency to make arrangements.

Do you drive on the left side of the road?

Yes, all vehicles in St. Croix drive on the left side of the road, so exercise caution if you are not familiar with this.

What is the usual fuel policy for rental cars?

Normally the car is delivered with a full tank and to be returned the same.  If not, the agency will charge you for fuel and usually at a higher cost than market.

Do you provide children seats? 

Most agencies can provide seats for kids or infants for an additional charge.  You will have to install it yourself for liability reasons.

Can I drive my vehicle off-road? 

Clarify the details with your rental agency.  Many do not allow off-road driving, even for Jeeps and other 4×4 vehicles.
