Car Rentals

In Barbados we drive on the left-hand side of the road and the majority of vehicles are “right-hand drive.” There are a number of ways to get around the island – hired car, taxis and buses – which are all very reliable.

We work with preferred car rental agencies, and we can pre-book on your behalf or book when you arrive at the hotel.

Cars can be delivered to the hotel or picked up from the airport, depending on your preference. For car rentals, please email Guest Services activities.desk@accrabeachhotel.com
