Cost of a Rental Car in Saint Thomas

Like everything else in Saint Thomas, a rental car is not cheap. We rented a fairly new Ford Fusion similar to this (I forgot to take a photo of our actual car prior to dropping it off this morning) from Budget Rent a Car. How much did it cost? $50 a day roughly. We finally returned the car this morning after 8 days of use (in which we used 3/4 a tank of gas). As you may know, my buddy and I moved here for a couple months about a week ago — and we are certainly glad to have this $50-a-day hole burning in our pocket gone from the drive way.

The jeep below is our new “island beast” for $450 per month. Not quite as luxurious, but certainly worth the trade off to save the extra $1000.
