KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Gustavia

  • You might assume that it would be simple to get around a 24-square-kilometer island - however, Saint Barthelemy (St. Bart’s) has neither public transport nor Uber or Lyft service. The local taxis available on the island are very few, so your best choice for transportation are car rentals in Gustavia. This allows you to discover the island’s attractions inexpensively at your pace. Exploring the attractions around the entire island will take about eighty minutes with stops.
  • Undoubtedly, the best option for reaching Gustavia is by plane landing at Gustave III Airport, now known as Remy de Haenen Airport (SBH). Thankfully, there are several car rental companies on the airport’s ground floor, including Hertz, Top Loc, Avis, Budget, Gumbs, Thrifty, Alamo, Maurice, Turbe, and Sixt. Some rental companies offer shuttle services from the airport terminal to their rental office or car pick-up location. You need a valid driver’s license and a document like a national ID or passport confirming your identity for car rentals in Gustavia.
  • It is easy to drive in Gustavia because the roads are in good condition, and there are no intersections or big highways. French driving laws govern the island, so ensure you drive on the right side and give pedestrians way. All drivers should be above eighteen years old and have valid driver’s licenses from their home countries. St. Bart’s has only two gas stations, one near the airport and another in Lorient. Both gas stations are closed on Sundays, so always keep your tank above half-full.
  • Though the roads in St. Bart’s are paved, they have a lot of curves and are narrow. The streets are also crowded with giddy tourists, animals, restaurant staff on scooters, kids from school, and truck drivers, so drive slowly. Driving at night is easy, but you should keep an eye on scooters that are sometimes hard to spot. Most of the tiny streets on the island are one-way, so keep an eye on oncoming traffic.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Gustavia for $46 or less
  • Book your rental car in Gustavia at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Gustavia are around 11% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate rental cars in Gustavia are around 19% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Gustavia?

    The best car rentals in Gustavia are the small ones because they are ideal for navigating the island’s narrow roads and easier to park. Average SUVs will look quite out of place on the island. The popular car options for navigating St. Barts include Kia Picanto, Jeep Wrangler, Hyundai Accent, Mini Cooper, Renault Duster, Suzuki Jimny, and Mini Moke. Most Gustavia car rentals are automatic transmissions, but you can request a manual transmission if you prefer this and are comfortable navigating steep hills in it.

  • What is the speed limit in Gustavia?

    The maximum speed allowed in Gustavia is 50kph (30mph). If you are not used to driving on the right side of the road or narrow roads, stick to 30kph (20mph). This might seem too slow, but it matches the overall slow pace of living and simple life on the island. Moreover, it fits the steep, cliff-hanging, narrow winding roads on which you are driving. Tailgating motorbikes and scooters might push you to speed up but ignore them and stick to the speed limit. The roads in Gustavia are made of concrete, so they are slippery when wet. Adjust your speed when it rains to avoid causing a deadly accident.

  • What are the best places to park in Gustavia?

    Most villa rentals and hotels will have free parking. In Gustavia and tourist spots, you will park in paid parking lots and street parking. In most places, you need a blue disk indicating your arrival time when parking. You can only park for ninety minutes. When parking on the road, ensure you pull in your rear-view mirrors, so they are not shorn off by other vehicles and scooters on the narrow streets.

Despite what they tell you, including providing a physical address for picking up the car at the Gustavia ferry port, Hertz is non-existent. Apparently, what they don’t tell you is that you have to get a ride from the ferry terminal to the airport to pick up the rental car. Had we been told this, we would not have bothered with Hertz. We ended up not renting from them because our day trip plans to SBH were in jeopardy as a result and instead, found a local car rental place a few blocks down from the ferry terminal, paid 80 euro for the rental and went on our way. Stay away if you plan to rent from Hertz at the ferry terminal.

Failed to meet us at the specified Harbor pickup location. Had to call airport location asking where the pick-up was and only then they were going to send someone. Wasted over an hour of our planned 4 hour rental so I canceled the reservation. Note I clearly indicated Harbor Pick-up as it was a selection option on there website and more expensive than a airport rental and it was an option. I did see Avis meeting customers and Maurice Car Rental meeting customers there.

Sep 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was exactly what we expected for the money (we didn't plan on using the car for anything other than a few grocery store trips). It was clean and the pick up / drop off process was easy.

Cons:

The only reason I selected "Mediocre" for Overall is because Thrifty (and PriceLine) are giving me the runaround. We were evacuated from St. Barth island because of Hurricane Irma so we were forced to return the rental car to Thrifty earlier than scheduled but we were still charged for the 6 days (instead of 4). When I contacted PriceLine about getting a refund for the unused days they said to contact Thrifty since we paid them directly. When I contacted Thrifty, they told me to contact PriceLine (the 3rd party) since we made the reservation with them. I'll never use Thrifty car rental or a 3rd party reservation service again.
