Some of the best places to rent a car in Barbados

Car rentals in Grantly Adams International airport are a convenient option, but if you're prepared to search for other places that offer some of the best deals for car rental in Barbados, it's worth looking further afield. Central city locations, like car rental in Bridgetown or car rental in Holetown, are also popular choices.


Barbados car rental types

Renting a car that's small and compact is usually a good idea, as roads in Barbados can be narrow and winding. However, if you're a larger group, you can also find some good deals on Barbados minivan rentals or SUVs. The type of car you choose for your Barbados car rental will depend on your specific needs and preferences. Consider factors such as the number of passengers, the amount of luggage you'll be carrying, and the type of activities you plan to do during your stay.


Advice on renting a car in Barbados as an American

You drive on the left side of the road in Barbados, which can be a bit disorienting for Americans used to driving on the right side. Once you've got your car rental in Barbados, take your time to adjust and familiarize yourself with the roads before setting out on a long journey. Investing in an international driver's license before you leave makes the process of renting a car in Barbados as an American easier, but isn't required. Gas prices in Barbados are higher than in the United States, so make sure you budget for gas for your rental car in Barbados accordingly.


One-way and long-term car rentals in Barbados

A one-way car rental in Barbados, where you pick up the rental car from one location and drop it off at a different location, is worth considering if you're planning to leave Barbados at a different location from where you arrived. If you're planning to stay for a longer period, you can also take advantage of the relatively lower cost of a long-term car rental in Barbados. Make sure to check out the cancellation policy before booking.

What insurance should I choose for my car rental in Barbados?
A comprehensive insurance plan is a good choice for your upcoming Barbados vacation. That’s why we recommend adding collision protection while reserving your rental car with Expedia. This covers your vehicle from theft, vandalism and collision damage. Some destinations may require a minimum level of liability insurance. This may already be included in your rental cost or your own auto insurance, so check what you’re covered for.
