A Barbados car rental is a must ... if you want to find those out of the way places to see
Barbados has a great bus system but a Barbados car rental makes seeing attractions like Harrisons Cave, the Flower Forest or Welchman Hall Gully very convenient.
These attractions are all located in the "Scotland District" as it's known or the central and Northern parts of the island and having a hired car will make visiting them very easy.
Just driving is an adventure, how many times in your life will you drive on a Caribbean island with sugar cane fields on both sides of the road towering above you?
A Barbados car rental is really required if you want to get into the little towns and villages and do some serious sight seeing at your own pace.
It's very easy to take possession of a Barbados car rental, most companies will deliver the car free of charge right to your Barbados vacation rental, be it a hotel or a private rental by owner.
A temporary driving license is a must, this can be issued by the car company you choose, it's only $10 Barbados.
A valid drivers license from your country of issue must be presented at the time of the rental.
Drivers applying for a car rental must be over 21 and under 70 years of age and have four years of driving experience.
Some tips on driving in Barbados.
These tips you would probably use in your home country but for some reason people tend to forget when they're surrounded by friendly and mostly honest Barbadians.
The Barbados car rental company I've been using for years is, Mangera Car Rentals Barbados - phone(246)-436-0562
They're not the biggest but Mr. Mangera has always been very helpful.
Another car rental company that has come highly recommended is,
Stoutes Car Rental Ltd. - The seasoned staff meet arriving clients at the airport or deliver the vehicles to any local address, they also provide detailed maps of the island and directions to their destination.
A 24 hour roadside assistance is offered to all customers. The company's large fleet of well maintained vehicles is backed by decades of experience.
