We just returned from a week in Barbados during which we rented a soft top Suzuki jimny from Drive Barbados. Email communication was prompt and efficient prior to arrival, pick up at the airport was extremely professional yet friendly and drop off was easy. Pricing was extremely fair compared to other companies I looked into. Will definitely be a repeat customer.
