The price of gasoline is set by the Barbados Government and fluctuates up and down depending on the price of oil. The current price is BDS $ 3.82 per liter

There is only one grade of gasoline island wide so it makes it very easy for you. Also, all of our gas stations are full service so you don’t need to pump your own.
We deliver all cars with at least a quarter tank of gas and you return it the same way. If you return the vehicle with less gas than delivered you will be charged.
All of our vehicles come fully equipped with a spare tire, jack and wheel tools for changing a flat. The Auto Rescue telephone number is now 418-2277 or 230-4997. They will come and change the tire for you. Telephone us at 228-0682 and let us know what has happened as we need to arrange to collect the tire, get it fixed and return it to you.
First of all, if another party is involved, do not move the car. Next, you should telephone us at 228-0682, let us know if anyone is hurt or needs an ambulance and then telephone Auto Rescue at 418-2277 or 230-4997.
