What you should know before you rent a car

Car hires in Barbados: practical information

Where to rent a car in Barbados

Long called Little Britain, Barbados is at the top of every beach bum's holiday list. From Bridgetown and beyond, the best way to explore this island paradise in the Caribbean is with a Barbados cheap car hire. Most all visitors arrive via Sir Grantley Adams International Airport. Pick up your car hire Barbados airport from there. At the airport, choose from over a dozen Barbados car hire companies, mostly local ones.

Most larger towns in Barbados have car rental companies in the town centres. As they are mostly local rental agencies, you'll find that competition doesn't drive prices down for rentals like in Europe. Barbados rent cars are more expensive than in the UK but they are essential for exploring the island.

Driving in Barbados: parking and other tips

Like at home in the UK, vehicles drive on the left-hand side of the road in Barbados so it'll be easy when you rent a car in Barbados on your trip. While public buses are a good way to get from major town to major town, if you want to see sights that are off the main roads, a rental car is the only way to go. Keep in mind that the roads are narrower than you're used to. While some roads are paved, many are not and tend to be quite bumpy, with steep hills and many sharp turns. Always drive with caution on the island.

The main highway in Barbados is called the ABC Highway, running from Grantley Adams International Airport to the West Coast, via the Southern coast. There are also numbered highways. HWY 1 through 7 start in Bridgetown and branch out across the island until the coasts. HWY A through Z are the smaller roads that connect all these branches together.
