4 tips for a hassle-free getaway to Barbados

The beautiful island nation of Barbados is one of the top vacation destinations in the Caribbean, favored by tourists for its sparkling, azure waters and temperate tropical climate. If you get the chance to visit the country, here are some tips for an enjoyable and hassle-free tropical getaway in Barbados.

1. Determine your budget.

Planning your holiday in Barbados will be easier if you make your preparations based on a budget. This should also include noting how many people will be going with you and what the budget is per person. Working around your budget, choose your airline, accommodation and entertainment activities or locations and stick to them. The Internet is a very useful tool for finding the best prices on flights, hotels and places to go for any budget, mood or occasion.

2. Discover the best time to visit the island.

Researching the busiest and less busy periods will help you have a more enjoyable stay at the best accommodation and quiet spots on the island. As with most popular destinations, traveling to this island during peak season means higher accommodation prices and more visitors. As such, you will probably have a harder time finding accommodation in popular areas, especially around the coastline.

If you’re after big events and festivals in this destination, keep in mind that these will also attract more visitors. An example of a major event is the Crop Over, a traditional harvest festival that began in the 17th century and is held in July or August. One approach to this is to write down the festivals or events you want to see and create your travel plans based on them. Of course, you will also need to book your travel and accommodation in advance.

3. Book flights and accommodation in advance.

Flights are often not a concern as they are often booked in advance; accommodations could use a little more attention. Once you have chosen a place to stay (hotel, villa or apartment hotel in Barbados) it is often advisable to book your stay in advance. As the island is a busy tourist destination, you may find it a bit of a challenge to find accommodation available, especially in the most popular hotels, villas and apartment hotels in the busiest areas. Early booking will allow you to choose the rooms and view you want and ensure decent and comfortable accommodation for you and your companions.

Especially if you will be visiting with your family or as a group, you will find it more convenient to have accommodation booked before your trip. Apartment hotels in Barbados are great options for group travelers because they offer privacy and hotel-like services and amenities. However, since many visitors choose them for these features, pre-trip booking is highly recommended. Some condo hotels (like the luxury St. James Condo Hotel) require visitors to settle their balance weeks before their arrival date, which is another reason to book in advance.

4. Pay attention and compare the offers, promotions or packages offered by travel agencies.

Although you may already have a fixed budget for your trip, it’s always a good idea to look for deals and promotions offered by travel agencies, especially if you decide to visit during peak season (when everything is often more expensive). Most travel packages, discounts or deals are available during the off-peak season, but still be on the lookout for travel agencies that offer them during the peak seasons. Who knows, you might need the extra savings for a nice souvenir!
