Top tips for renting a car in Barbados

  • As long as you hold a valid driver’s license from your country of origin or an International Driver’s Permit, you can obtain a mandatory visitor’s permit to drive and rent a car in Barbados. Fees range from 10 BBD (5 USD) for a two-month permit to 100 BBD (50 USD) for a one-year permit. These permits are available at all rental agencies throughout the island. Also, make sure you have a credit card, because there are some agencies (Courtesy Rent-A-Car) that do not accept cash.
  • Parking your rental car in Barbados is fairly easy because the laws are very relaxed in this regard. Generally speaking, free parking areas within town limits are designated by the letter P or wherever you find parking meters. Outside of municipal limits you are free to park on most roads, but always take care to use well-lit areas wherever possible.
  • Should you decide to rent a car in Barbados, you should know that rush-hour traffic on the island heading towards Bridgetown (the capital) between the hours of 7:00 am and 8:30 am and out of Bridgetown between 4:30 pm and 5:30 pm can cause excessively long lines and frequent jams. You should keep this in mind if you intend to be on the road or if you have appointments that you need to keep.
  • Apart from the national ABC Highway, most roads in Barbados consist of one lane in either direction, and many streets in the countryside are not well lit, so use extreme caution when driving at night. Despite its size, it is not uncommon to find yourself lost when driving on the island. This is especially true for first-time visitors, so renting a GPS system is a good investment.
