Just around the corner is the annual Oistins Fish Festival. Rooted in the most southern major town in Barbados is the bustling fishing centre called Oistins. Lost established as the epicenter of the fishing industry on the island, even today this town is still as important today as it was a century ago. To recognise this rich heritage, the Festival to celebrate the people of this town has been a staple on the local Bajan calendar around Easter for decades. While close to the southern tourist belt, Oistins is easily reached by hired car. On Friday nights, this usually quiet town comes alive with the weekly fish fry. Locals and tourists alike converge from most corners of the island to enjoy the fresh fish and great sights and sounds around the Bay Garden or on the main stage. For you, getting there is going to be the start of your adventure. We suggest a reliable and comfortable rental car as the way to go for maximum enjoyment. You can come and go as you please, as long as you’ve remembered to book your hired car! Make your reservation here: https://www.stoutescar.com/make-a-reservation

Whether you’re in Barbados for the whole season or just for the holidays, your trip will be a whole lot better with a hired car. But, you’ve got to plan ahead. The winter season is the busiest on the island for arrivals, and, as such, we always find that demand exceeds supply. You’ll find that you need to book your rental early if you’re to avoid disappointment. Our range of mid-size sedans like the Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3 and Toyota Yaris are usually the most popular due to their great size for families. This size vehicle is also the staple on our roads making them easy to maneuver over the highways, and in the city. They offer great fuel efficiency and are packed with the amenities, including a/c, power accessories and automatic transmissions, you expect from your family car. We also carry the perennial island holiday favourites, the moke style vehicle and the convertible soft-top SUV. Our Kia Moke is a great convertible runaround offering the ultimate open-air experience. These great little compacts feature no doors, windows and a canvas roof. They’re great for going to the beach or making the island your oyster as you explore the back-roads and country lanes of the interior of the island. Our other convertible fave is the Suzuki Jimny. This compact SUV is great for couples and families with a couple small children. You’ll find this hired car to be more versatile than you’d think, especially when doing some exploring on country roads or making your way to those beaches only the locals know about.  Its compact size and commanding driving position put you in charge and makes driving on the left even easier for those less familiar. The removable roof is just the icing on the cake! Remember that a rental car gives you the freedom to explore Barbados at your own pace and can even save you money on transport, depending on your itinerary. So, escape the dreary winter and land your dream vacation in the tropics and remember, we offer the best in fully equipped rental cars and SUVs to make the most of your Barbados vacation. So, load up the GPS and car seats, if you need them, and live your island adventure with the help of your hired car. Happy Independence Barbados!

It’s that time of year again and summer is nearly here. Do we hear your shouts of joy from here? Yeah, we do! Maybe Barbados is on your itinerary for family’s summer vacation. Maybe it’s not. If it’s not, then you should reconsider.  There’s nothing quite as exciting as a tropical island getaway adventure, or maybe you’re a carnival lover, and Crop Over and Kadooment day are your thing.  Either way, an action-packed holiday framed by pristine white coral beaches and bathed in golden sunshine sounds like a great way to reward yourself and your family. Integral to your enjoyment of your island getaway is going to be your mode of transportation while on island. A hired car is the way to go for those looking to maximise their trip. The versatile all-rounders from our fleet are the Mazda 3 and Toyota Corolla. These 5-seater sedans are considered midsized, for this market, and are the most popular size and class of cars on the roads locally; and for good reason. These family-sized sedans are very effective at moving a family with a couple parents and kids, especially if those kids are in car seats. They’re also great for two couples on holiday together who are sharing a car on their island exploration. In Barbados, we drive on the left and have lots of rambling country lanes for you to explore, and you’ll find that the proportions of the Mazda and Toyota can’t be beaten for safely navigating these roads. As a driver of either of these 4-door saloon cars, you’ll find your trips into the city or other urban areas are a breeze. The comfort of the cool air-conditioned cabins makes these easy to maneuver rental cars nimble enough for easy parking and making your way through the traffic.  The large trunks/boots make these cars great shopping companions with the ability to safely swallow up your purchases and securely store them as you move around the island.  Or maybe you’re using the Corolla or Mazda 3 for your business trip, and these cars will be great for carrying your samples, presentations, display materials, or just your colleagues around the island. So, whether here for the great summer activities which Crop Over and Kadooment have to offer during the Sweetest Summer Festival or you’re doing a little business or some pleasure, we offer the best in fully equipped rental cars and SUVs to make the most of your Barbados vacation. So load up the GPS and car seats, if you need them, and live your island adventure with the help of your hired car.

The first step to choosing your hired car for your Barbados vacation is going to be determined by your travel needs when on the island. The size of your group/family immediately will tell you what category of car or SUV you’ll need in order to make the most of your adventure. We offer a full range of vehicles suited to our driving conditions and road size from the smallest ETAN/ECAR economy car category to the much larger MVAR vans and PFAR premium SUV vehicle choices.    For the single traveller or those travelling in couples or with two adults and a couple children, we have the KIA Moke (ETAN) open-side compact convertible car. Also popular for this grouping are the KIA Picanto economy car (ECAR) and the Suzuki Swift (CCAR) compact car. For a little more room, and if you have 5 people in your party, then you can choose the Toyota Yaris midsize sedan (ICAR). This vehicle is also great for those with families using car seats for their babies or small children.    If your preference is for a more elevated driving position or you just prefer an SUV, we have the compact Suzuki Jimny available in soft top (CJAR) or the hard top (CFAR). These capable little vehicles have small rear passenger leg room, so are best suited if your rear seat holiday makers are smaller in stature.    For our Barbados market, we consider midsize sedans with 5 passenger capacities to be cars like the Toyota Corolla (FCAR) or Mazda 3 (SCAR). These are the most popular size cars on the road and are great for a group of adults whether on business or vacation, and they offer relatively generous boot/trunk space for your daily island adventures. For these same needs we also have a range of SUV’s, if that’s your preference, which include vehicles like the Ford Ecosport SUV (IFAR), Suzuki Grand Vitara (SFAR), Nissan Xtrail (PFAR) and Toyota RAV4 (PFAR).   For groups of up to 7 adults, we would recommend one of our van options. The Suzuki APV Van (SVAR) or the Toyota Noah (MVAR). These spacious people movers allow you to travel in comfort with your entire group in one vehicle. Also, they’re perfect for visitors who may be in a group of two but travelling with bulky items for work or play.   The second step to making your choice is typically going to be the price. As with any holiday, your tropical getaway is going to have a budget. We offer a wide range of rates, which will typically increase with the size of the vehicle. Our lower daily rates are found in the compact range of vehicles like the KIA Moke, Picanto and Suzuki Swift. However, the two Suzuki Jimny variants tend to be a slightly more expensive option, as they are an entry into the SUV category.    If you’re looking for some more creature comforts and generous space our wide midsized sedan range offers great value for money. Vehicles such as the Toyota Yaris, larger Corolla, and the Mazda 3 or similar are very popular choices both in terms of the cost and the flexibility in cabin space and boot/trunk space.   Our SUV range contains our premium vehicles with rates commensurate with the trim levels and larger roomy interiors. The range runs from Ford Ecosport to the Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota RAV4 and Nissan X-Trail, or similar.   While our vans like the Suzuki APV and the Toyota Noah run toward the upper end of our pricing scale, these vehicles can offer some of the better economy for group travel, since their capacity can allow for visitors travelling together who want to consolidate their parties – like 2-3 couples – into one vehicle for the ultimate travel together experience. We are one of the largest rental car companies on the island with a range to suit any budget or travel need for your best Barbados vacation.    Remember to observe all traffic laws, including speed limits and seatbelt laws.  We also drive on the left, so all our vehicles are right hand drive with automatic transmissions.

Hopefully, for you, it’s about as cold as it’s going to be all winter. For us here in the tropics that means it may be in the high 70’s or low 80’s – we can hear your tears from here! Well, we’ll happily welcome you to our sunshine island for a tour around Barbados in your choice of hired car. Barbados has many great attractions, sights and sounds which are best accessed by the traveller with the freedom to move around on their own schedule. That is what having a rental car means – the freedom to move on your own schedule. If the beach is your thing, then the choice of the perennial island vehicle, the Kia Moke, is the only one that makes sense. The fully convertible top with no doors and functional interior makes it the perfect beach runabout. If you require a little bit more from your rental, then maybe one of our many SUV’s will fit the bill. From the compact Jimny to the much larger X-Trail the beach explorer in you will have the go anywhere assurance one gets from driving a 4x4. For our adventure sport enthusiasts, this type of hired car is just what you’re looking for to get to the perfect secret spot, or place to launch your kite. Maybe your idea of a great excursion is taking long drives through the Bajan countryside with your family, just hoping to run into that unspoilt gem off the regular highways and byways.  We’ve got sedans for that. We stock our rental fleet with the right mid-sized sedans that you are familiar with, like the Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3 or Kia Cerrato. If your family is a bit larger, then we suggest a 7 passenger Suzuki APV or Toyota Noah. For the urban explorer, we suggest a smaller hired car, like the Kia Picanto, Suzuki Swift or Toyota Yaris. For those visiting our UNESCO World Heritage Site attractions and highlights, then moving around the smaller city streets of Bridgetown and its environs is a breeze in these compact stars. Smaller cars well suited to the size of streets makes it far easier for our visitors to get comfortable in their rental car. As a bonus, parking will also be a breeze in the city. So, when you begin your next island adventure, remember to choose the hired car to best suit your journey. Make sure you get the GPS option to make your trip as enjoyable as possible, and if you’ve got the kids, then the right car seats and safety equipment is going to be indispensable. Buckle up and let your rental carry you on your tour of paradise.

As we welcome the start of the winter tourist season in Barbados, Stoute’s has a lot of ‘new’ going on. First of all, we are continuing to expand our new website to include the many features which you are asking for from us. Add the that a fleet full of new vehicles. Whether there have been model changes or all new types of vehicles offered for hire in the varied categories, our rental car fleet has been updated. From the Kia Mokes to our top of the range SUV’s – Toyota RAV4 or Nissan X-Trail – and all of the sedans and vans in between, we’ve made the best of the range of vehicles readily available on the island. When looking at our 4x4 selection, we offer the Suzuki Jimny (soft or hard top), Suzuki Grand Vitara, Ford EcoSport, Nissan X-Trail and Toyota RAV4 for your adventurous side. All of our SUV’s offer the easy to drive automatic transmission you’re familiar with on your daily driver and air conditioning to keep you and your family or friends comfortable as you explore the ins and outs of beautiful Barbados. One of the decisive reasons for choosing an SUV for your island adventure is the driving position. Many of our clients find it easier to drive on the other side of the road, when they have that commanding view that their rental jeep offers. For maximum fun factor and cool points, we have the soft-top convertible 4x4 offered by Suzuki. The Jimny is a very versatile little compact SUV which promises plenty of fun for the driver and their passengers. Imagine, you’re in a perfectly sized little run-around, with the capability to go most places, whether along the highways or off the beaten path. (Or as we Bajan’s would say: ‘Behind God’s back’) Being quite compact in size and only available with 3-doors, the Suzuki Jimny is a great size for that travelling single or couple, who may have small kids. Our renters also love the compact size because of the ease of maneuverability, whether parking in tight spots or just cruising the highway. For those travellers looking for a hired car with a little more room, but the same SUV attitude, we offer the Ford EcoSport, Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota RAV4 and the Nissan X-Trail. These larger 4x4’s offer the same go-anywhere ability as our more compact offerings in our hired-car fleet, with lots more space. We invite you to buckle up and punch in a random destination on your GPS and point your hired car in the direction of your greatest adventure. With nothing to stop you, we’re sure your island adventure is going to be the best of a lifetime!
