You cannot fly to St. John directly, you must fly to St. Thomas (STT). American Airlines, Spirit Airlines, Delta, jetBlue, United, Qatar Airways, ITA Airways and British Airways all offer non-stop flights to St. Thomas (STT). However, direct flights are only offered on certain days of the week and most flights from Washington, DC will have a transfer in either Atlanta, GA or San Juan, Puerto Rico. Flights have an average duration of 4 for a direct flight and 5 to 8 hours for flights with layovers. The average price in October is $400-$600 dollars per person round trip.

House Or Rental
The main house will be located in Chocolate Hole, St John - we recommend booking close to Cruz Bay as Coral Bay is a roughly 20-25 minute drive to the main town. However, if you have no problems coming and going from Coral Bay, then feel free to stay in whichever beautiful part of the island you choose - you can't go wrong anywhere you decide. We also recommend coordinating with other wedding attendees to split larger Airbnb Villas to not only lessen the cost burden for lodging but also to get the most bang for your buck on an amazing Villa in tropical paradise. We have included a short list of Airbnb's available on the island here and if you are unable to access the list please text either Bradley or Ella to share to list with you directly. Please also text us directly if you would like suggestions on who to coordinate with for splitting Airbnb's, we have plenty of thoughts in mind for grouping amongst friends and family.

There will be plenty of opportunities to arrange taxi services on the island though as October is the low season for travel they will be more limited than peak season availability. If you prefer to have more control over your schedule to see and enjoy as much of the island as possible during your trip, there are a few car rental companies on the island. Jeep's are almost exclusively the rental car available and remember to "Stay To The Left" and drive in the left lane on the island of St. John.
