Bridgetown Airport Taxi

Bridgetown Airport taxi photo

Taxis may be found outside Arrivals but you are likely to be approached by taxi touts as you exit customs (see pirate taxis, below). Official BGI Bridgetown International Airport taxis display yellow 'Authorized Airport Taxi' sticker on their cars. Taxi prices are fixed from the BGI Bridgetown International Airport and there is a taxi price board outside the customs area for study (where you will likely be approached by touts).

Prices shown on the board are in BBD, which are roughly pegged at BBD2 = USD1. These prices are open to negotiation.

When discussing the price for a ride, be very clear and confirm the currency the price is in -- either US Dollars or Barbados "Bajan" Dollars, otherwise you might be paying double or having a heated discussion at your destination.

Arrive or depart stress-free at the Bridgetown Airport by pre-booking your private Bridgetown Airport transfer.
See our Bridgetown Airport private transfer options page for more information and pricing.

 Pirate Bridgetown Airport Taxi Serivce


Taxi touts linger around the customs exit at BGI Bridgetown International Airport. They will direct you to unofficial taxis (private cars). They are not licenced to carry passengers, so best to avoid them.

IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the pirate Bridgetown Airport taxi service.

Unofficial taxis are not licenced and you may be ripped off.

 Bridgetown Airport Taxi Scams

Dollar Debate: Make sure that you agree to the currency for the trip. Many people have had a surprise at the end of the taxi ride to hear "no, US dollars, not Barbados dollars", essentially doubling the price.


Luggage Helpers: Beware of 'luggage helpers'. They are not there on behalf of the Bridgetown Airport, but rather to earn a tip off you for their services. Place your own bags in the back of the taxi and do not hand them to someone that wishes to assist you.
