Useful info for Barbados Holidays
The local currency used on the island is the Barbados Dollar (BBD), however, visitors may want to hold off shopping for branded clothes and electronic goods on the island, as they are often imported and therefore come with a higher price tag.
It’s also worth noting that any ‘camouflage’ patterned clothing or accessories cannot be brought into Barbados as it is strictly reserved for military use. It’s worth ensuring you don’t pack camouflage clothes or accessories for yourself or others in your bag, as they will likely be confiscated before entering.
