Car Rental

There are a load of car rental firms in St Barts, including locals and well known names.

A large group of us were on the island and used a variety of car rental firms including Gumbs, Europcar and Hertz, and

there were no reports of any significant problems. However, Island Car Rentals

(favoured by St Barth Properties) were terrible - gouging on the price over

insurance at check out and arguing over existing damage to the vehicles

and the level of fuel. Suggest they are avoided.

We are returning in August - any particular favourites anyone would care to suggest?

Chas, had somewhat of a car debacle last trip in February with one of the locals. Next time I will go with Hertz, and rent an automatic. The old fleet of manual jeeps on the island have really taken a beating, and the automatics tend to be newer, although more expensive.

As you are well aware, a working gear shift and decent tires is a must on the island! And not getting beat to death is a plus, too!

Have a wonderful trip! Binti
