Our taxi service is excellent, and our taxi drivers are among the finest tour guides on the island. You’ll be quite safe with them and you’re sure to enjoy their lively banter and stories about the local culture while you’re in their company. Taxis are not equipped with onboard metres and rides vary in cost depending on the distance. The drivers know the rates, so be sure to ask them what it will cost to take you where you want to go before you begin your journey. This will help to avoid any misunderstanding, and your hotel personnel should also be able to assist in booking taxis for you. Otherwise there are taxi stands at the airport, the seaport, in Bridgetown and various other locations around the island. There are also the yellow pages in the Barbados telephone directory in case you want to “let your fingers do the walking.”
There is an additional charge for excess luggage. In cases where a passenger has excess luggage and requires a van (larger vehicle), the rate charged is 1 1/2 times the normal rate. You can view the full taxis rates here to various locations around the islands. Rates are in Barbados dollars. For further information contact the Airport Duty Manager at 1 246 420-2900.
