RENTAL CARS: DRIVE ON THE LEFT (It is natural if you are left handed)
Reserve your car ahead of time. Several rental agencies are located at the Airport. If you have not been to St. Croix before, you might consider taking a taxi. Make a quick stop at the grocery (10 min. or they charge for waiting). Then proceed to your selected lodging. It is unlikely that the government or military loans you a car, so it is best to have your rentalcar delivered directly to you. You are now starting out from a familiar spot. Keep track of your route and you can get back quite easily. The road signs are few and far between in St. Croix . They have put up a few more now compared to our first visit. If you are familiar with the island go for it, right from the airport. Make getting around enjoyable, call Judi. On the day of your return flight; most rental vehicles can be dropped off at the airport.
We use and recommend Judi of Croix.
You can make reservations ahead of time by calling VI Limo 340–778–5466.
Rental of bicycles for getting around the island is sort of neat. Just watch for those uphill locations that you want to see. Check out car rentals!
Taxis are everywhere on St. Croix for getting around. They are just waiting for you at the airport. In Christiansted, taxis are lined up near the Government House on King Street, and on Market Square . Frederiksted's taxi stand is by Fort Frederik. Quite often they are found waiting outside the grocery stores. On St. Croix they are vans not the little taxi to which we are accustomed. You will be getting around in style with plenty of room for shopping bags.
Locals, as well as tourists quite often use them to go food shopping. The average fare from the airport to Christiansted is $16.00 for 1 or 2 people. Average is $12.00 to Frederiksted for 1 or 2 people. You can make arrangements with any standing cab to be picked up at a certain location at a later time. No phone call is necessary. For a more detailed list of TAXI RATES please CHECK OUT OUR PDF FILE.
Our personal recommendation is Big John's Taxi Service. Just give him a call at 1-340-7736388 or 1–340–474-1856, 7am to midnight. He will be fair on rates and wait for your call to return. Big John will wait while you run an errand, go grocery shopping or return at a specified time.
