St. Thomas Taxi Rates & Tips

There are numerous Taxi Associations and private drivers on St.Thomas.  Certain taxis only service certain areas. Your best bet is to find someone you like and stick with them. Our rule of thumb, if someone picks up the phone when you call for a ride, book ’em!

If you are traveling to more remote areas, we recommended making pre-arrangements for pick up. Also, rates are set by the VI Taxi Association, (see below) but its always a good idea to confirm before you head out.

      Even though these are published rates, its best to call in advance to get a quote. Since the storms there may be different considerations.
