To rent a car from us, you will need to have:
A daily fee of US $2.00 (maximum US $40) is charged per extra driver. (Please bear in mind that the renter’s spouse will NOT be charged this extra driver charge).
It is mandatory that you obtain a Barbados driving permit to drive on the Barbados roads. This permit is valid for 2 months and can be obtained from our representative for US$5. (Once again, please bear in mind that our valued customer’s driving permit will be taken care of by us).

Late return fees as follows:
1 hour of less: US $10
1 – 3 hours: US $25
Anytime after 3 hours: a days rental
We encourage all our valued clients to notify us as soon as possible when they intend to cancel an agreed reservation. If the client fails to show up to pick the car within 24 hours and has not notified us of any delivery detail changes, the reservation status will be updated to ‘No Show’ and thus you will incur the full fee of rental as arranged in the event of ‘No Show’.
We deliver our rental cars with about a quarter tank of fuel but clients can return the car with an empty tank if you so choose. In other words: should you do so return the vehicle with more fuel than a quarter of a tank, we will not reimburse you for any additional fuel costs (although we would very much appreciate your kindness and good gesture).
All our rental vehicles are covered by third party risk only. The renter is liable for any damage or loss occurred during the rental of the vehicle for up to US $500
Our agents inspect returned vehicles to ensure they are in the same conditions it was delivered.
Security Deposit: A signed credit/debit card imprint for the deductible/security deposit of US $500, for accident, damages caused to the hired vehicle payable on rental of the vehicle and it shall be fully refunded to the renter should the vehicle be returned in the same conditions it was received.
Drive Barbados will repair a flat tire at no charge, but in the event, the rim or tire is damaged beyond repair, the cost of replacement will be the client’s responsibility. All our vehicle tires are delivered in good condition, and we kindly encourage our clients to carefully examine car tires when picking the car up for rent.
Drive Barbados does not charge any delivery or pickup fees for services offered during operation hours (between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm). Deliveries and pick-up outside these hours will attract a US $25 delivery fee.
The pick-up and delivery include to or from the airport and villa.
Your flight got delayed? If you arrive after 11:00 pm, please call our office on (246) 6240702 the following day at 9:00 am to reschedule your delivery.
Note: For Cruise Port Deliveries. Due to our small fleet of vehicles , we are unable to offer any one (1) day rentals. However on request, we can recommend to you a taxi / tour operator to take you around the island.
Drive Barbados will not be held responsible for the loss or damage of any items left in or on hire vehicles. Although our island is a safe place to holiday in, we encourage all our valued customers to be vigilant and take precautions to keep their personal property safe and secure.
