Barbados Travel Insurance

Part of the Commonwealth and situated in the Caribbean, Barbados is a popular destination. The capital Bridgetown is a favourite for Cruise Liners to dock.

Best known for its beaches and warm sea, Barbados also has many attractions such as the Botanic Gardens and Plantations.

It does seem very much like the United Kingdom in the Caribbean as daily rituals are afternoon tea and it is famous for the Cricket matches that take place on a regular basis.
