To really enjoy yourselves on St. John - we highly recommend that you rent a car for your villa vacation! Having your own rental car gives you the freedom to do what you want, when you want. This way you will be able to see and enjoy much more of St. John. When traveling to the US Virgin Islands, your foreign or U.S. driver's license is valid here for 90 days. You can either rent a car on St. Thomas or St. John. Your Villa Escort will meet you in Cruz Bay, St. John., at either the passenger ferry dock or the car ferry dock, as applicable. If renting on St. John, take a taxi to Red Hook for the 20 minute ferry ride to St. John on the passenger ferry. The economics of renting on St. John vs St. Thomas are about equal considering ferry fees and taxi.
If renting on St. Thomas, you will drive your rental car to Red Hook and take the Car Ferry to St. John. This will entail navigating St. Thomas in sometimes very heavy traffic.
