Now you can rent you car directly from us before your trip - saving money, time, and hassle! Just use the form above to start your search. The British Virgin Islands can be an expensive place to rent a car, most islands (the main one being Tortola) are small and there are steep hills. You will need a BVI license ($10), obtainable with your valid driver's license. Driving is on the left, like the US Virgin Islands.

See our airline, cruise line and tour operator listings for more information.
