We have been using Drive Barbados for the last 4 years. We have been coming to Barbados for the last 20 years, so we have tried several other car rental firms. We are so happy to have found Drive Barbados, none of the other car rental firms can beat them – not on price, or on the personal and efficient service given. We see no reason to use anyone else. We have recommended Drive Barbados warmly to others in our family.

FAQs about rental cars in Barbados

Renters, spouses or domestic partners are licensed to drive with no additional driver charges. All authorized motorists must present themselves at the rental location to meet age and may drive the rental car included in the lease agreement.

Upon arrival in Barbados, you need an approved local permit to travel about the country and visit destinations at your own pace. A driver’s license is obtained from the Barbados License Authority offices or most car rental agencies.

You can add a second driver directly at the time of booking or at a later stage, but this will need to be arranged with the rental car company first. The extra hirer must be present to sign the rental agreement form. 

All motorists must be identified to the rental company at the time of rental.

Suppose you allow another motorist who was not reported at the time of rental. In that case, you will have violated the terms of your rental contract. As a result, the rental car companies will void any Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)/LDW you bought and may deny liability coverage.

If you want to rent a car for someone else, then the primary renter needs to present their credit card with their name to pick up the vehicle to be identified.

The minimum age to rent a vehicle from Drive Barbados is 21 years. You should have at least 2 years of driving experience. However, renter’s rent costs are capped for those under 25. In addition, a young driver surcharge is included in the hire price to cover expenses of possible damages. Drivers older than 70 need a medical certificate from a local practitioner.

To get rented vehicles in Barbados, a valid driver’s license of a national origin driver will be needed. It’s required mainly for the majority of rental companies. However, some may require transferring cash rather than using your card.

Roadside assistance is often time-limited and entails essential roadside emergency services such as vehicular breakdown, tire change, or jump start. Rental car insurance will protect costs incurred due to theft, accidents, or delays.

Drive Barbados accepts debit and credit card Visa, MasterCard, Discover card and AMEX.
