You’ve planned your road trip around St. Croix. You’ve chosen your Caribbean vacation car rental company – Centerline. Now, what to pack in your beach car rental? A day trip in the Caribbean is much different than your standard roadtrip from, say, Pittsburgh to Philadelphia. We’ve compiled a list of island road trip essentials that might not be on your radar.
- A Map. In these technological times we’re so used to using our smart phones for everything that bringing along a physical map might seem like an antiquated idea. There’s a good chance your cell won’t get service here in St. Croix, though. And even if it does, like the Boys Scouts say, it’s good to “always be prepared.”
- Dramamine. You’re probably wondering why you might need seasickness medicine if you’re going on a car trip, not a boat trip. But parts of St. Croix are quite hilly and steep, and island roads can be rougher than what you’re used to. If you’re motion-sensitive, it might be wise to bring some Dramamine along, just in case.
- A Waterproof Phone Case. At as little as $30, a waterproof phone case is an excellent and relatively cheap way to settle the dispute about how big that fish that swam right past you really was. You can snap pictures with your phone in and even underwater without fear of damaging it, ensuring that not a moment of your trip goes undocumented.
From the flora and fauna of the rainforest to the sparkling blue water at the beach, a road trip around St. Croix is a great way to spend a weekend. With these tips from your Caribbean vacation car rental company, your trip will be smooth, hassle-free and a whole lot of fun.
