Taxis

You've touched down at Barbados' only airport, the Grantley Adams International Airport and gone through immigration and customs. It's now time to get to your destination. On exiting the airport the choices of taxis are endless as they all await visitors and locals who need such a service. It is important to note that the taxis in Barbados are not metered and it is highly recommended that you and the taxi driver agree on a favourable price before setting out on your destination.

 

For those travelling in large groups, a preferred choice might be an airport transfer. These are mini-type vans which comfortably carry passengers as well as luggage. The convenience of an airport transfer is that the taxi is parked outside the arrivals hall waiting for you. This is an excellent way to remove the unnecessary hassle that is sometimes associated with waiting for a taxi.

 

Throughout your stay in Barbados you will want to get around and a taxi is quite an ideal way to do so as one can easily be called to wherever you are, to take you wherever you want to go. Taxis on the island offer a flexible service that allows them to not only be available throughout the course of any given day but also be available throughout the wee hours of the morning. If your preference is sightseeing and you want to book a particular taxi for the whole day, such an arrangement is possible as well.

 

For the larger groups that will require a larger taxi service, there's also the option of the tour bus/coaches. This way groups can book such a service that takes them sightseeing with seating at elevated levels offering a better view of the island.
