1. Re: taxi or bus?

Taxi rates from the airport depends on how many people are traveling, the amount of luggage and whether its a car,a seven seater or a minivan.

I was quoted us $17 from the airport to Dover,but instead ending up paying $25 because the driver had a mini van. On my return we took a 7 seater which cost 20

for the 4 of us with 4 suitcases and hand luggage.

Dover is just 10 mins drive at most.The West coast might be 15-20 mins.

However if you are traveling light, the blue bus and ZR vans are very cheap and efficient. 1.50 Barbados

per person is the best deal.

That is about 117 BDS$ ...seems OK to me for a return

Put taxi fares into search box for loads of info

How many of you??

How much luggage - can you carry it easily???

Which part of the west coast?? ...big difference between say Fitts Village and Speightstown

There are buses ( 27??) that go from Airport to Speightstown other wise you may have to change in Bridgetown ...journey time to Speightstown is about 80/90 mins

Cost = £.50

From the airport to Port St Charles which is about as far up West as you can go, I'll pay $60 USD ($120 BDS) each way and I'm 1 person in a SUV. Assuming you're a few people, prices shouldn't exceed this unless you have tons of bags, 6+ people.

The cheapest way is taking the bus but man, after a long flight I just want to hit the beach!

From the airport to West Coast (Holetown) should be about BDS$80 and would take 40mins approx.
