Fast track through your airport arrival.

Taxis from the airport.

Barbados taxis are experienced with transporting visitors from the airport to their accommodation. Standard fares are regulated by the government. In 2023, the fare to Holetown was around BBD120 but don’t hold us to it. You don’t need to reserve an airport taxi ahead of time. They’re usually on standby at the airport. Make sure to have your directions handy because most taxi drivers don’t use GPS on the island.

Barbados, including the Holetown area, is widely considered safe* for visitors, but it's important to exercise common sense. The US Department of State lists Barbados as a Level 1 destination, indicating that visitors should exercise "normal precautions".
