We will be staying in St Thomas for 2 weeks in January 2013. What are thoughts on getting car rental now as oppossed to waiting ??? Have price from "Discount car rental " that is $100 less than travelocity price.
Thanks to all who respond.

I always do a reservation that is priced good, then keep shopping around for deals. You can always cancel. Most time I get a good deal with the airline discount code. St Thomas is expensive to rent cars - make sure the company is located in the airport. First year we rented from Thrifty - it was off site and a hassel to return, upon arrival waiting at the airport for pickup 30 mins after calling Thrifty. Now we rent from Avis always found a good price there.

We've used Avis at the airport the past 2 years. $320 for 7 days for a compact. 3 years ago we used discount and they were good but we had to call them to pick us up.

I can get a good price on a compact car from Budget, which says it is at the airport. Has anyone used them?

Be careful with Discount car rental as you can not take their cars to St. John's. Because of that and they are $25 more than budget, I guess I will stick with Budget. Don't want added expense with renting a car in St John's for one day.

We use Discount every time we're there. Discount allows their 4x4's to travel to St. John but not their cars.

We just returned from a trip to St John. We rented a car from Budget on St Thomas. This was our second year renting from Budget and we have been pleased both times.
