Arrival/Departure: ARRIVAL ON ST. THOMAS
We can arrange PRIVATE TAXI SERVICE from the St. Thomas Airport to the Red Hook or Downtown Charlotte Amalie ferries. The cost is $90 for 1 – 4 people and $15.00 for each additional person, including luggage for 5 or more people . The driver will meet you in the terminal and will take you DIRECTLY to the next ferry. The driver will also call us, to let us know which ferry to meet, saving you from trying to make phone calls on the run. USING THE REGULAR TAXI SERVICE: After you have collected your luggage, look for the taxi stand just outside the baggage claim area. ASK TO BE PUT IN A TAXI WITH OTHER PEOPLE HEADED FOR ST. JOHN . JUST BEFORE YOU ARE READY TO LEAVE THE AIRPORT, CALL US AT 779-4070. IF YOUR LUGGAGE DOESN'T ARRIVE: Determine when the next flight will be. If it is a short period of time, you might want to wait for it. Otherwise, file a lost luggage claim, leaving the phone number at your rental villa, or our number (779-4070) as your contact. (Lost bags will usually be delivered to the Paris Rental Car office on St. John by the next day). Then secure a taxi, as above, and CALL US.
ARRIVAL ON ST. JOHN AND GREETING: One of our staff will be at the dock to greet you, with a CAREFREE GET-AWAYS sign. We offer one complimentary arrival greeting, per rental. Your greeter will meet the initial arriving guests at the St. John Dock, take them to their rental car and escort them to the rental villa for an orientation.. Additional greetings for later arrivals can be arranged at $50.00 per arrival, pre-paid. Check in time is 3PM. Earlier luggage drop off at the villa can be arranged for early arrivals.
DEPARTURE: Check out time is 10AM. This is to enable maids to clean and prepare for in-coming guests (often that very afternoon!). Please follow check out procedure for the individual villa. If you have a late flight out of St. Thomas CHECK WITH US ABOUT STAYING LATER IN YOUR VILLA. You must take a ferry that leaves at least TWO AND A HALF HOURS BEFORE YOUR PLANE IS SCHEDULED TO DEPART. Carefree does not offer departure service. If you need assistance with transporting luggage to the St. John Dock, a taxi can be obtained.
