Renting a car is the best way to see the whole island at your own pace. St. Thomas has several different rental agencies to choose from. Rental agencies are conveniently located at the airport, in Charlotte Amalie, at large hotels and in walking distance from the main cruise ship dock in Havensight.
Car rental prices are affected by size and type of vehicle, duration of rental and time of year (season vs. off season). A two-door car might run around $54/day or $187/week. A mid-size four door around $50-60/day or $200-300/week. A jeep will cost you roughly $65/day or $350/week. For families or groups you can rent a minivan or SUV at $75-120/day or $450-750/week. Trucks are also available for rent and they run $75-85/day or $450-500/week. Special packages and discounts are usually available, so it is possible to get lower prices.
