Taxi Tips

Taxi Van, St. Thomas
  • Taxis are almost always available at the cruise ship docks when ships are in port, at the airport, within the shopping district in down town Charlotte Amalie and usually at large hotels and popular restaurants/bars.
  • Licensed taxi vehicles are labeled with: a taxi placard or dome light on the roof, license plates that indicate Taxi status, On Duty/Off Duty sign in the window of the vehicle and a sign, usually on the fender, indicating passenger capacity. The drivers personal identification/taxi license should be on the vehicles dash board.
  • There are drivers that run "gypsy taxis" in their personal vehicles. They do not adhere to the rules of the taxi commission and are use at your own risk. They often hustle outside bars and grocery stores.
  • Although rates are standardized it is recommended that you speak to the driver and agree to your total rate (for you, your group, your luggage, waiting, tour) before boarding the taxi.
  • Many taxis are multi-destination and some can carry up to 26 passengers. At the airport in particular drivers will often wait to fill their vehicle before departing. You can pay extra for a private taxi (see Special Provisions Section).
  • See the Special Provisions Section after the rate sheets for sightseeing tour rates, luggage rates, private taxi rates, weekly rates and other information.
