Airport Car Rental
The capital of Barbados, Bridgetown is also the country’s most populated city and the main port of entry for foreign visitors. Most tourists head straight to one of Barbados’ many beautiful beaches, but Bridgetown also offers plenty in terms of culture and entertainment. These are three of the most interesting attractions in and around the city:
- The Careenage. A marina and waterfront at the heart of the city, the Careenage is both the geographical center of Bridgetown and one of its most popular tourist areas. Whether you come to check out historical landmarks like the Chamberlain Bridge (the first version of which was built by the indigenous Arawak people) or to enjoy the views from an oceanside restaurant, you’re going to have a good time.
- Nidhe Israel Synagogue. Built in the 17th century by Sephardic Jewish refugees, this pink-hued synagogue is one of the oldest in the Americas. The centuries have seen it survive hurricanes, be deconsecrated, and then be significantly restored making it the historical landmark that it is today. As interesting from inside as it is from outside, the synagogue is now home to the Barbados Jewish Museum.
- Nature areas. Owing to its Caribbean location, Barbados is home not only to pristine beaches but also lush tropical forests, something that should definitely be explored on a visit to the island. Located right next to each other and just a 30-minute drive from Bridgetown are the Barbados Wildlife Reserve and Farley Hill National Park, two great places to explore the island’s flora and fauna, as well as overgrown colonial ruins like the Grenade Hall Plantation House.

Balance roads not always the best. Car held road well, and good visibility. When there was a mechanical problem (happens on All cars) had very fast and efficient service.

I’m a regular to Barbados family visits.

Make sure you book in advance

Barbados is beautiful. But we found many of the places to visit were closed due to refurbishment, opening later 2022. Can't get much later than mid November. Parking was hard in Bridgetown. Better visiting other areas by car.

Barbados is always a great experience what ever you do.

Bottom bay lovely wild beach, but not for swimming. St Nicholas abbey tour was excellent and really worth a visit
January 24, 2022
Cost! Was definitely the cheapest option for us and was very easy to pick up at the airport and had the car we wanted at the right price.

I'm from Barbados so of course it's a great place, for people from larger countries with bigger roads it might be a bit scary at first but there is hardly any dangerous or fast traffic, it's a breeze.
March 17, 2020
It's worth driving around the island and the city to discover what you might not otherwise.
March 1, 2020
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.
February 24, 2020
Taxis are ridiculously expensive and take a long time to arrive. You need a car.
February 24, 2020
Bridgetown needs some investment, but I love enterprise, accra and the beach next to the Hilton. Dont miss out on cuz.... he sells the best fish cutters on the island near the Hilton . My favourite restaurant is champers for both lunch and dinner. Another local restaurant near the Hilton is coffeys (local bajan dishes). If your on the east coast go to dinahs .
February 23, 2020
Bridgetown is a must to visit but as we have travelled to Barbados four times in the last year we didn’t do as much travelling in the vehicle as what we usually do but it’s always an option

Just enjoy the Island

We always rent a car when in Barbados, as keen and proficient drivers we have a lot of fun every time because there is always something new to visit or find by chance. The downside is the horrendous quantity of potholes/ broken or missing drain covers/ etc along the coast road particularly from the Garrison to the St. Lawrence Gap. Rush hour traffic times should be avoided if possible. Local drivers tend not to indicate much....... but are often very courteous and willingly let you out from a side road. A single or double bip on the horn signifies thank you, not aggravation.
October 23, 2019
Very useful to have an air-conditioned car in Barbados. We tried to avoid the ABC Highway during rush hour. I would recommend that drivers keep their distance as we saw a few accidents and road users under and overtake.
September 25, 2019
Definitely helps to rent a car. Getting around is much easier and much more efficient. You can visit more places too.

driving on the left side of the road is difficult. roads are very narrow. roundabouts take some getting used to.
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 15, 2019
Car not needed or easy to use in Bridgetown but pretty essential for getting around the rest of the island. So airport pick up and drop off is best way.
April 4, 2019
too many to mention. Cliff restuarant, Zaccio's restaurant.
March 28, 2019
It would help if the Discovery company name was at least visible at your point of collection at the airport office.
October 14, 2018
We rented the car straight from the airport. The signs in Barbados are very random and it takes a while to get the hang of the major and minor roads. We used the Waze App for directions which worked well. We found driving in Barbados safe and pretty easy.
