SAILING DAWN PRINCESS 3-24-01. I HEARTHERE ARE A LOT OF RENTAL CAR COMPANIES AT PORT(BARBADOS) WHEN YOU EALK OFF SHIP. ANYONE KNOW WHAT COMPANIES ARE THERE? TRYING TO RESERVE PRIOR TO SAILING NEXT WEEK. OR IS IT EASY TO GET A RENTAL CAR DAY OF PORT// ANYHELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
I have rented a car on two occassions at the Port in Barbados.You need not reserve ahead of time. Just present yourself. There is only one rental company there.
The cheapest to rent is a sun moke which will run you $90.00 for the day including insurance. The island is easy to drive around but please note that you drive on the left hand side of the road. Lots of fun but can be confusing especially when you are going around the roundabouts.
Or....if you don't have your heart set on having your own car, you can take their local buses. We took one from town (5 minutes from the pier) along the coast and got off and went to a great beach for a couple of hours. Then we took it back in time to catch our snorkeling excursion for the afternoon. Have a great cruise.
