Car hire in Barbados

Tourists who find themselves contemplating an historic monument at the National Heroes Square in the morning and then pondering their next bet at the casino at night, will know they're in thrilling Barbados. Car hire in Barbados allows easy access about the island, whether visitors are heading to see history, wildlife or nightlife.

Major airports and ports

All international flights arrive at the large and modern Grantley Adams International Airport on the south coast in Christ Church Parish. The seven-hour route from the UK is mostly served by British-based airlines. British and other western cruise ships dock at the International harbour at Bridgetown, while inter-island flights are available from Barbados to other Caribbean islands. However you plan to get to this holiday hotspot, compare cheap car hire in Barbados with CompareCarhire.co.uk before you travel, to snag the best deals.

Transport

Buses take a crisscross route across the island, with all lines ending up at Speightstown. Private AC mini-vans, known as ZRs, also pick up passengers at fixed rates and schedules. Hang on to your seats however, as these vehicles burn very quickly around town. Self-driving from the airport is by far the easiest and safest way to travel. Barbados car hire depots are located in a number of the island's major towns and cities.

Driving tips

There is an intricate road network running around the entire island, petrol stations abound and parking areas are easy to find. Most cars available for hire have AC, while sun roofs and top down models are also available. Those wanting to take advantage of car rental in Barbados require a temporary driving permit, which costs BD$10 and can be obtained from local rental agencies like Whizz or Sunny Isle Motors.

Places to visit

The allures of Barbados are its sparkling white and pink sandy beaches, its laidback daytime atmosphere and its wild nightlife. Due to strong ocean currents at the east and north coast beaches such as Soup Bowl and Cattlewash, visitors usually only opt to take romantic strolls or sunbathe here. South coast beaches on the other hand are calm enough for swimming and diving.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is CompareCarHire.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
