A car is very useful to visit the many interesting places around the Island, Bridgetown itself is not a good place to take a car, but parking on the outskirts is cheap.

It is not critical to rent a car at the airport. For most locations you can get fast with public transportation. However it is very convenient to have the car from the very beginnig. Return is very easy.

Car is a must for a two week holiday. Lots of places to go with best beaches on the west coast, so buses or taxis not so convenient.

Interesting city with lots of history to discover. The whole island is a foodie paradise with food to cover every budget available. The golf is outstanding when you sample a couple of different courses. The people are probably the friendliest you will ever meet anywhere.

We didn’t love the capital but everywhere else we went east coast, animal flower cave, cherry tree hill and Carlisle bay were amongst of favourite spots.

April 19, 2019
The car provided for us the opportunity to explore the sites and the culture of this unique country at our own pace and schedule. I would suggest that the pickup at the airport is the easiest way to access a rental car. Do the research before attempting to drive there as the challenges of the lane reversal can be confusing.

April 16, 2019
I was impressed at the courtesy and patience the local drivers gave to me considering i was clearly a tourist driver not acquainted with the roads. Although not all roads are in good condition, Barbados is a pleasure to drive in largely due to the Bajan people and their scenic Island.
