Taxi Transfers

Can anyone confirm how easy it is just to get a taxi on arrival at the airport or is it better to book someone beforehand. If so...any recommendations???!!! thanks

There will be taxi drivers waiting at arrivals at the airport, so you will be able to get one easy enough.

Where are you staying?

almond beach village. In past holidays to barbados we have always had a taxi transfer or coach transfer with our booking so have never actually experienced trying to get one ourselves. Thanks for your reply

As GlitterGirl says, there will be plenty at the airport. Speak to the taxi "rep" who will be wandering around with a clipboard to check the price (they are set prices) and make sure you confirm with the driver the cost and also clarify the currency (US$ or Barbados $) as the occasional bad apple will try and con you! One offered to take me for "just" $27 dollars (when I asked he meant US), for a journey that was only worth around $30 (Barbados)!!

Taxi rates to Almond Beach Village from the airport will be about bds80/usd40. The journey will be about 45 mins - 60 mins depending on traffic.

Our plane arrived after midnight being late from MIA, and there were still more than 10 taxi's waiting outside after we cleared customs and got our luggage. We did hire one before hand, but looking back, I don't think it was a necessity.

One thing you might want to do is get a few business cards of the other taxi drivers. They are very loyal there and most are self owned businesses, so if you find one you like, you can call them and have them pick you up during your visit. We didn't particularly like the one we got when we arrived, but the person we met on our second day we ended up getting a personal island tour from as well as had him take us everywhere the rest of the time we were there.

Thanks for posting the link for prices. Very helpful!

We flying to Barbados next Friday and will need a taxi to the hotel.

Is a 10 to 15% tip acceptable for taxi's?
