My wife and I will be arriving in St John’s by Porter Airlines and plan to spend 3 nights in St John’s and hiring a vehicle. We will then take the DRL bus across the island to the ferry – this will give us an opportunity to see the island – even though it is very brief.
Several queries are: can we hire a vehicle so that we can collect it on our first morning in St John’s and return it the evening prior to our departure on the bus? We notice that the DRL bus starts at the University. Are there any reasonable hotels or B&B's nearby that we could spend our 3 nights at so that it would be more convenient the morning of our departure?
Lastly, what/where would you recommend us to go in those two days? Perhaps we should only rent the car for 1 day and to either walk or take a tour in St John’s.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
