Friend is heading from VG to catch a 3:30 flight from STT. Carry on luggage. If he took the 10 AM to RT and the 11:30 to CA, does he clear customs at the ferry dock then again at the airport? I forget how this works. It's a Monday so I'm hoping I'm ok w this scenario? I can arrange taxi ahead of time to airport if that makes any difference. Thank you

What day of the week? Weekends the airport is a zoo. Especially at the time he will be arriving.

I wish there was a forum specific geared toward people looking to share rides/ flights. My son's college does this with so much success. Just sayin. :-) It would make solo travelers or small group travel easier and cheaper.

There doesn’t seem to be that much need in TTOL for that. Would be a good FB group but then someone would need to administer it and that is a CHORE.

I would try and get him on the 10:00 ferry. If that’s not a option it will be bit tight. Carryon only is a big help as well as global entry. The ferry will probably dock at 12:45. Out of customs at 1:15 and arrive at airport about 1:30 to 1:45. 1:45 will work assuming it goes well. Make certain he checks in online. As bad as the airport can be with carryon only it has never taken me more than a hour to run the gauntlet! I do however have precheck and global.

One solution is simply to fly into Beef Island. Then you grab a taxi to Tortola or a ferry to Virgin Gorda - they run all day and evening.

Thanks all. Ugh. It’s so complicated to/from VG. I have quotes out to water taxis for our big groups. But solo travelers have to do the hard work. Tho I realize this sounds absurdly first world brattish. “Hmmmm. How to most easily get home from my paradise vacation “. 🤣🤣
