  • You will be able to choose from ten different rental agencies when thinking about John's V.C. Bird Intl Airport car hire options. All have help desks inside the airport arrival terminal and most have collection centres in the immediate surrounding areas of the airport. All companies offer daily, weekly, or monthly rental options.
  • Even if you have an international driver’s licence, you are required to purchase a local temporary driver’s licence, which can be done through the rental agency when you decide which car hire at John's V.C. Bird Intl Airport suits your travel needs. This licence is valid for three months. In order to obtain this, you will need to present your current valid homeland driver’s licence and your ID document or passport.
  • St. John's V.C. Bird Intl Airport is a busy airport that services major cities in the area. To avoid any time wasted when returning your hire car make sure you are aware of which parking lot is assigned to which hire car returns agency. You can do this by checking the map on KAYAK. We recommend that you also check with the agency’s representative when you collect the car. Be sure to ask them about the after-hours service too, if you know you are going to be returning the car during hours that the agents are not operating. All the car hire agents at the airport operate from 09:00 to 16:00 and are available seven days a week. We recommend you give yourself at least 20min of time for your rental return if you have prepaid online. If you haven't prepaid your booking, give yourself at least 35min to be safe. If you are travelling during peak tourist times you will need approximately 45min to complete the process and get to your departure desk in time. The busiest months are from May to June.
  • Book your car hire at St. John's V.C. Bird Intl airport at least 7 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Great experience and value. Car was a bit old but drove well. Customer service was outstanding with Carolyn. In addition they drove us back to town after the rental.

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing , complete lie from both kayak and thrifty car rental

Cons:

The car that was booked for us turned out a two door suv with no trunk and barely 4 seats ( the last two foldable) we were five and the booking was for SUV 5 people 5 pieces of luggage . Not sure who is lying kayak or thrifty !! There were also a mandatory license plate fee , temporary drivers license fee , and mandatory insurance 4$/day that we’re not noted in the booking arrangement . The “upgraded” car for higher rate of course was ridiculously small and in a rough shape . They tried to make me pay for stains that was like that when we got the car. That is my second horrible experience with thrifty car rental and definitely the very last one. However I believe kayak has some fault here too for miscommunication and false advertisement so I will refrain using this site for future as well.

Cons:

I booked through your platform a SUV 4 door, 5 pax, 4 bags. I got the smallest existing 4WD (Suzuki Jimny) 3 pax , 2 bags. I had booked this one a bit more expensive than others offering for the size . very dissapointing . It does not seem to be Thrifty's fault, but Kayak's.

Pros:

3dr Rav4,Car was rugged and prefect for the narrow, pot hole filled roads of the island. The rental office is in a small building just south of the terminal, don't expect much. Except expect nice people that will get you going and loaded up for your island adventure.

The check in process could use some modernization(no computers for contracts), but the rental agent was wonderful and the car was perfect. We opted for the compact SUV as we had heard that roads in Antigua are not in the best condition. This was definitely true and many of the places we went were not paved. The car was a Jimny, excellent on fuel usage, easy to drive, and perfect for the road conditions. Return was quick and simple.

Pros:

The staff was awesome!!! Very friendly.

Cons:

Maybe a map around Antigua and better tires on the car we rented. For the type of terrain we were driving in the tires were weak. It was scary to think we could have gotten a flat at any moment not really knowing where things were located. But overall adventurous and great little car for our trip!

This place is a small parking lot owned by local mechanic. All cars are old and in terrible condition. I’ve had to return two cars as both had mechanical issues. Second car tire got flat over night after one day use. Don’t expect to see any real Budget quality I went to other rental Thrifty and got a perfect car for the rest of my trip. STAY AWAY from Budget on Antigua island!!!

Cons:

We booked a rental car with Budget, when going to pick up the car they told us they didnt have any car for us. they had our reservation, but no car! We were told that this do happen and that they in those cases handed us over to Hertz instead. At Hertz we had to argue that we would have the same deal, as their cheapest car was gonna be $10 more expensive than the deal we had confirmed with Budget. This is absolutely ridiculous. We book a car, had a confirmation, then they dont actually have the car, ship us over to someone else and we have to pay a much more expensive price! At Hertz we told them that the confirmation we had stated $25 per day, so the lady was going to clear it with the manager as this was lower than what their standard prices. The representative came back after a few minutes and told us that they could do the $25 for us, as she had cleared it with her manager. Foolishly of us, we did not double check this! They had a holding of $500 on our card, and when we asked what the total was we were told that it would be deducted from the $500 and the rest was going to be released again. We asked twice about the total and she did not tell us. We later realised that she had put $35 per day, instead of the $25 as verbally agreed, so obviously this was the reason why she didnt tell us the total! We feel very cheated by the behavior of both Budget who didn't uphold the confirmation that they had a car for us and by the representative at Hertz who fully knew what she was doing!!

The car was old and banged up. The rubber in the trunk was loose and out of the groove and we had difficulty closing it. The rubber was also out in the back door and leaked when it rained. The attendant told us she would call on the weekend to get us newer vehicle but she never called. When we called on the weekend no one answered. The air conditioning was not up to par and the car had no power. The tint was warped and we and trouble seeing through the side glass. All in all terrible and my husband said he wouldn't rent from Hertz again!
