Does anyone know if Budget at the airport allows their vehicles on St. John? Also, what are the chances of finding beach chairs for sale in November? Thanks

Yes, Budget allows you to take their cars to St. John. We've done that several times however we have since started renting on St. John. Its much easier than dealing with the car barge.

You can find chairs in November but most rental villas include them. St. John Hardware and Chelsea Drug store in Cruz Bay sell them and in Coral Bay Crabby's Watersports near Cocolobba Plaza.

I don't know. We've never even tried to turn it on. We just roll down the windows, unzip the sides and go. We've never felt that we needed it.

If you are planning on going back and forth between St. Thomas and St. John you will have to rent in St. Thomas. None of the car rental companies that I know of in St. John allow you to take their jeeps off of St. John. The penalty is very expensive.
