Renting or hiring a car in Barbados is easy, and many of the agencies offer unlimited mileage, free delivery and pick up, and other “tidbits” which range from baby seats to road maps.
There are several reputable car rental agencies on the island, which would be happy to help you discover Barbados behind the wheel of one of their vehicles. Many of them also offer unlimited mileage, free delivery and pick up, and other “tidbits” which range from baby seats to road maps. However, there are certain legalities involved in the hiring process, and you do need to have a valid driver’s license to get a visitor’s permit to drive here. These permits are issued by the car rental agencies or the Barbados Licensing Authority for BDS$10.00. Once you've got a permit, you can drive for two months from the date of issue. When you hit the road, remember that we drive on the left, speed limits vary, and seatbelts are compulsory. And don’t worry about getting lost; there’s no such thing, as there’s always someone willing to provide directions, and all roads lead to home!
