Customers also have the option of having their car delivered to any address on the island. Upon meeting with a Stoutes staff member, clients will be provided with a detailed map of the beautiful island of Barbados and directions to wherever they wish to go.

Barbados has stunning beaches on either side of the island, with the west coast especially boasting an almost uninterrupted stretch of sandy beaches. Many visitors also like to drive across the island to the more rugged East coast. Here travellers will find several deserted beaches hidden amongst rolling hills and dusty palms. A hire car is extremely important to those who wish to see every part of the island.

Some of Barbados’s terrain can be difficult at times so Stoutes offers a range of four-wheel vehicles that have no problem navigating across the island. The Suzuki Jimmy Jeep and Grand Vitara are perfect for travelling along the dusty roads native to Barbados.

The smaller TC10 Daihatsu Charade is great for getting around while the Toyota Yaris offers a comfortable ride with plenty of space. For larger groups Stoutes offer the six-seat Suzuki APV van, a good option for families who plan on taking food and activities on the road with them. Families who wish to hire a booster or child seat can do so by simply asking one of Stoutes’ staff members.

All Stoutes vehicles come with the promise of 24-hour roadside assistance in case of emergencies and years of experience from a well-trained staff pool.

The company is happy to rent either short or long term at competitive prices. All renters are required to be 21 years or older and to have held a license for at least two years. Barbados also asks drivers to obtain a local driving permit for travel on the island.

Although some car hire companies ask for their cars to be returned with a full tank of petrol, Stoutes prefers to receive their cars back with as little petrol in them as possible.

Stoutes has three locations in Barbados, with one on both the east and west sides of the island. Having a location at the islands airport makes it easy and convenient for Stoutes to help customers settle into the Barbados lifestyle as quickly as possible. From then on it’s up to the visitors to take a car and see as much of the stunning island as they can.
