car hire

I've just got back from Barbados. Most companies deliver the car to your hotel and will collect from the hotel when you have finished with the car. You might consider arranging this and just hopping in a cab from the airport to your accommodation ?

We rented from Fat Jacks car rental, they were pleasant and easy to deal with. The car was a bit of a clunker though (a moke). I would advise you against a moke, as it wasn't the best car for some of the poorly maintained back roads ! If I were renting again I'd go for a 4WD.

Have a great holiday

When we go to BDS we usually stay in the St. Peter area have always found" Drive-a-matic"in Holetown/ sunset crest to be most helpful they even delivered a"jeep" to the cruise terminal so we could get a quick "BDS fix"before flying home! I strongly agree about "mokes" get a jeep. I asked a very wet person why didn't you stop & put the roof up?no point it's coming through the floor!!

You do pay for what you get when renting a car. We found that MAH car rentals offers a great quality car/vehicle at reasonable prices, the cars are clean and well maintained.. As most car rentals they deliver and pick up.

They can be contacted at (246)427-1952 or 436-7189 e mail mahcarrentals@sunbeach.net

We always call around but consistently find MAH has what we want. The only advice I could give beyond that is book a car early as the hight season is starting and with CWC events cars will be scarce.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for the information on MAH car rentals. I have just e-mailed them asking for a quote.
