Driving Tips

Driving Tips

When you rent a car in Barbados you are ideally placed to enjoy the island's stunning and varied scenery. Strangely for an island country, Barbados has the world's sixth-highest density of roads. There is only one major road, however, the ABC highway which joins the main towns of the island's West coast. This is generally well-maintained and signposted. Drive with caution on other roads as they feature narrow carriageways, sharp bends and steep inclines and are unlikely to be lit at night. Watch out for pedestrians on the road as pavements are rare. Like all capital cities, Bridgetown can become very congested.

More tips for enjoying driving in Barbados:

  • In Barbados driving is on the left and speed limits and distances are measured in kilometres.
  • There is no drink driving law in Barbados but we recommend you avoid drinking if you know you are going to be driving.
  • It is mandatory in Barbados for children under 5 to use appropriate baby or booster seats but we recommend their use for all children.
  • Park in towns only where you can see clearly marked zones as parking is more strictly enforced than many driving regulations.
  • If your rental car is damaged by being driven off paved surfaces you will be charged for repairs.
  • Crossing borders with rentals is not allowed.

Speed limits in Barbados

  • Residential areas: 40 km/h
  • Rural roads: 60 km/h
  • ABC highway: 80 km/h

Traffic Infractions and on-the-spot fines:

Driving rules are fairly relaxed on the island and you are unlikely to be stopped unless seen doing something exceedingly dangerous. If an on-the-spot fine is issued it must be paid at a police station.

Built in a Jacobean style with three Dutch gables St Nicholas Abbey was once at the heart of a sugar plantation. Today, only three buildings in this style survive in the Western Hemisphere. Although still a family home that features very un-tropical stone fireplaces it is open to the public. Gun Hill Signal Station perches on a cliff top and offers panoramic views. Its gun signalled the approach of enemy ships and the safe arrival of cargo boats. The island's Neo-Gothic Parliament Buildings in Bridgetown are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. They contain the National Heroes Gallery and Museum of Parliament while the lavish interior of Sunbury Plantation gives a glimpse back over three centuries of life for plantation owners.
