Rental companies’ regulations vary between holding a valid driver’s license for 2 to 5 years, but there is no young persons’ fee applicable. If you are a senior over the age of 70, you will require a medical certificate in order to qualify to rent a car.
While a liter of gasoline will cost about $0.83 in the US, in Barbados the price is about $1.96 per liter ($3.14 per gallon in the US). Diesel prices are much better ($1.57 per liter and $5.89 per gallon) in comparison (in the United States, $0.81 per liter and $3.08 per gallon). Fortunately, the island is not very big, and a good network of roads ensures that a full tank can go a long way.

If in doubt, always pay attention to the speed-limit signs, which are posted at various points along all minor and major roads.
