We are going to St. Thomas and staying at Marriott Frenchman's Cove. I was about to give the charge card # to Hertz for a week in August, when she told me there is $1,000. fine to take a rental car to ANY other island.... it is prohibited to use the ferry.!!! I have been reading all the forums as to where to go or what to do when we get there.... is this something new??? What is your suggestions on taxi if we did go via a taxi?? Our passports have not come back for a renewal since sending them in Jan., so not sure if islands are available, also, will there be an overall problem at airport?
