I would just like to say how please I was with the car and the service I received from you. I was staying at the Golden View Apartments, St. James and hired a car from you on the 29 Aug until the 7 Sep.
I have been visiting Barbados for a number of years and on many occasions when renting a car it has been hit and miss! Sometimes I pay a lot on money for an "old banger" which I was surprised was allowed on the road.
This time I got a car which to me seemed almost new from a company whose rates I found to to be very reasonable. Your service was very professional from drop off to pick up and I will definitely be recommending you to all my family and friends who visit Barbados in the future. Please, please don't hike up your prices like some of the other companies!
I will look forward to using your services again next year. In the mean time good luck and best wishes to you all.

It has been a few months since I rented a vehicle from Barbados Rentals, and I must say the experience was a positive one! (I rented a 2011 Kia Picanto between May 28th through June 4th, and I received the yellow one, too!). The customer service exceeded my expectations.

It would be remiss of me not to write and thank you for your excellent service. You made the process hassle-free, despite my misgivings about choosing a site on the internet without any personal recommendations. Your staff are engaging and truly helpful. The whole experience was a positive one. I will recommend your company whole-heartedly to any friend or aquaintance!

Hi Jonathan, just a short note from the Forster family to thank you and your colleagues for your excellent service whilst we holidayed 12th-24th September. You are your staff were always on time very helpful and most courteous. We managed to trip about the island all along teh west coast and up to St Lucy to visit friends, up to Bathsheba and St Martins, to four square rum and everywhere in between. We had a faboulus time and are still fed up about being home. It is true, Barbadians are the friendliest people we have ever met. We would recommend Barbados and of course yourselves to anyone. So thank yu all very much and hope to see you soon, Regards Graham, Paula, Emma and Hannah Forster.

We are just writing to thank you for the great service we received when we rented a car from you on Sept 20 - 23. The booking was straight forward and the car arrived on time, but most importantly on Sept 21 we broke down in the middle of the island and really thought, even though you said you would get out to us asap that the days was written off. Particularly gutting as it was our wedding anniversary and we had a "planned day" However, you were out to us within about 45 mins from the call, put us straight in a replacement car and we were on our way.
We will definitely tell people to book with you. To this end we have recommended your services to Bougainvillea Resort on the Maxwell Coast. It goes without saying that we would book with you again.
