Not everyone here is on vacation

<< More articles on driving and hiring cars in Barbados

Not everyone travelling to our tropical paradise is coming for vacation. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be a couple dips taken in the sea or some drives around the coasts of the island. However,  when your primary purpose is going to be business, we do find that your needs change. The popular Moke or Samurai open-top SUV are not the vehicles of choice, but rather a sensible sedan or small car is the preferred option.

Generally, for those coming to do business on their own, and who are comfortable or familiar with the island, the smaller car is the way they like to go. Something like the compact Chevy Spark, Kia Picanto or Suzuki Swift is the go-to vehicle for those on the go. These smaller cars are very economical on gas and are perfectly sized, especially for those zipping around the city of Bridgetown or making frequent stops in areas with tight parking. The air-conditioned comfort of these vehicles is not always appreciated until you spend a day behind the wheel.

For those travelling in a bigger group of up to 4 adults, or those who prefer a slightly larger car, we offer the Toyota Yaris, Corolla, Mazda 3 or Kia Cerato.  These mid-sized family sedans are the staple of the roads in Barbados. These are the most popular sized vehicles, because they are versatile and economical to run. You’ll feel right at home driving one of these sedans, while your three colleagues enjoy the passenger comforts offered in the spacious air-conditioned cabins.

For some travellers, driving in a foreign environment (including on the ‘wrong’ side of the road), is a daunting proposition. For them, we would recommend the SUV options. These mid-sized SUVs include the Toyota RAV4, Suzuki Grand Vitara and Ford EcoSport. This size vehicle is also very popular on the locals highways and offers many options for the rental car driver. Apart from the obvious driving position advantage, the larger cabins allow for taller adults to experience more comfort on their journeys.

If you’re part of a larger delegation or are carrying a bit of equipment/product for those special presentations while on island, then the hired car for you is from the 7-seater group. In this group we offer the Nissan X-Trail, Suzuki APV or Toyota Voxy (Noah/NAV 1/Esquire). These vehicles offer the ultimate flexibility and comfort for the business traveller. For those with a lot of product or bulky samples or that large display which is going from location to location, the larger cargo areas afforded by the stowed seating in these vehicles is perfect for your assignment. If you are a part of a larger group of up to 7, each of these rentals will allow you to move around the island as a group, rather than having to split up into a couple of cars.

So, whether on business or pleasure our fleet of automatic transmission sedans, vans and SUV’s which can be equipped with GPS, make the perfect rental vehicles for your island tour. Make your Barbados experience the most productive that it can be.
