‘Bim, I love you. Bim I am proud of you.’ Words and a sentiment immortalized by soca star Red Plastic Bag in his 1984 song entitled, simply, Bim. A feeling shared not only be Barbadians across the diaspora, but also by many of the millions who have visited our shores. By now you’re asking yourself, who is this Bim? Bim is Barbados to all Bajans. A term of affection and endearment whenever uttered. As we enter the final countdown to Celebrating 50: The 50th Anniversary of our Independence, Barbadians the world over are converging on our shores to join in the celebrations and reconnect with their homeland.

Beaches and parks all over the island, normally quiet at this time of year, are alive with the buzz of locals and visitors seeking to explore Barbados and all that it has to offer. The only way to fit this all in, especially for the visitor is to have access to a rental car. The freedom afforded by a reliable and comfortable hire, allows maximum enjoyment of each precious day of your vacation.

If you are going to be visiting our shores this month, you’re in for a special treat. Chances are that you’ve come to take advantage of the relatively quiet period in the hotels and restaurants and maybe to enjoy a deal or two on your island holiday. However, this is going to truly be a special vacation due to the celebrations. Even your daily staple: Eat. Beach. Sleep. Repeat. Is going to be made more enjoyable by the Independence spirit.

Driving around the island in your rental car will reveal a patriotic splendor, unmatched in recent years. Be prepared to be greeted at roundabouts with elaborate decorations and lights, drive by buildings draped in ultramarine, gold and black bunting and washed in similarly coloured lights. Exploring the major towns: Bridgetown, Holetown, Speightstown and Oistins; is going to be your best bet for immersing yourself in the cultural celebrations day or night, and it’s only going to get better all month long.

However, you cannot beat the convenience and savings of having your own hired car at your disposal. Choosing the right rental car company and hiring the right GPS equipped car, is integral to you buckling up and enjoying the trip of a lifetime in Barbados!

Happy 50th Anniversary of Independence Barbados!
