Airport Transfers

Hi All,

I am going to Barbados in a week and was wondering if I should book airport transfers before I get there....there are some islands where I know it'snot necessary but was wondering from the pros....

Anyone know any good airport transfer companies and what is the going rate?

Don't waste your time. Taxi rates are fixed by the government. Look for the taxi fare list as you walk out the airport. Then go to a taxi supervisor, ask for a taxi and the price. Then when you get your taxi ask the price and if it differs with what you were told, tell the driver the price in Barbados dollars as quoted. Not US dollars, Barbados dollars.

Easy, quick, safe.

Enjoy Barbados

It seems that, on the whole, prebooked transfers (especially via a big hotel) are more expensive than simply taking a taxi from the airport.

As previously mentioned, rates are pre-set and listed at the airport - but do just double check with the driver and ensure you are talking the same currency :O)

I arranged a taxi with the folks who I rented the villa from. $60 USD to Fitts Village. OUCH. I found some nice clean taxi vans (5 of us) with polite and safe drivers and they are charging between 60 or 75 barbados for my return to the airport. That's half price. I agree with the other replies that prearranged is more expensive.
