I often get asked this question and the truth is that you can travel to Barbados any time of year. There are however, various compromises that you may need to make. The weather is changing worldwide, and so these are generalisations based on many decades of historical measurement, but no guarantees. That said, in terms of the weather, the best months are still January through to April, as they are the least rainy and the least humid, and they tend to be a couple of degrees Centigrade cooler than other times of year. The official hurricane season for the whole region is June to November, with any potential major storms occurring between August and October. This doesn’t stop families pouring in during the summer holidays from around the world – possibly because it is understood that Barbados, being the most easterly island in the Caribbean, means that it usually escapes direct hits. If you travel in the late summer or autumn, there is a much higher likelihood of rain.

I’ll admit that one trip in September a few years ago, we had three full days of torrential rain. My husband (Bajan) had never seen anything like it. Having said that, we still had an amazing time and I have never had feedback from any of my September Clients (or even family living in Barbados) which has matched our exceptional trip. So don’t let this put you off September as it is humid and potentially rainy but it has it’s advantages. Price! and if you want a quieter trip, most of the travelling families have gone back to work and school.

So price, well the weather plays an enormous part (along with UK holidays of course). Christmas and New Year are premium prices for flights and accommodation – very much so, as it is such a wonderful place to be for the season. The top hotels are full very early in the year. Flights are taken up well ahead of time, leaving the more expensive seats for late-comers, if at all. Still worth trying if you’re interested. If there is any availability, Barbados Travel Deals will find it. Hotel and Villa rates are also much higher from mid-December to mid-April than at other times of year.

May is a great time to travel as the weather is still lovely and the prices have started to drop significantly. June prices are some of the best, with a slight risk of rain. If you want to go in the winter without the huge cost, November and early December are good. If school holidays are a must, then the May half term will be more cost-effective than the Christmas, Easter or summer holidays.

The only other thing to consider is that the quiet months of September and October are often the time that hotels use to close and renovate and some restaurants and bars may be closed. It is true, but I’ve never found it to be a problem. If there’s somewhere you really want to visit, just ask us and we can tell you if it’s open or not.

That’s it for now. Just call us at Barbados Travel Deals on 0845 6434 606 or 01977 524235 or email at info@barbadostraveldeals.co.uk to get some further advice or options for different dates.

Does it seem a tad early to be talking about Christmas 2014? Not for your Christmas in Barbados. In a couple of weeks, the flight schedules will be available and seats start ‘flying’ (ho) off the shelves. I’m writing now because I felt I was disappointing some Clients this year who wanted to fly on key dates over Christmas and New Year as they were asking too late for a palatable price, if even a seat at all. And as Premium Economy and Business seats are limited, they are like gold dust. They disappear very fast. And the cheaper ones go first (as with economy) as the ’supply and demand’ business model for a Barbados Christmas kicks in with little or no leeway for any last minute deals.

Then there’s the accommodation. Of course there’ll be accommodation available but the 5* book up almost instantly – many of course with repeat Clients. If you want your choice of the 4*, you also need to book early. The 5 Elegant Hotel Group properties from the All Inclusive Crystal Cove and Turtle Beach to adult only The House, or the new Barbados Sandals, or Bougainvillea on the south coast, close to St Lawrence Gap, and Mango Bay, All Inclusive, right in Holetown, offer many quality 4* hotels that would make your Christmas merry and bright!

It’s not all bad. Just start planning now and Barbados Travel Deals can help you secure an amazing holiday ahead of the hordes. And then you have your dream Christmas/New Year to look forward to all year.

So give Barbados Travel Deals a call or an email request 0845 6434 606 / 01977 524235 (info@barbadostraveldeals.co.uk) and give either specifics or an idea of your perfect Christmas holiday. We can provisionally book with some Operators even now or you can discuss with your partner/family now and in a couple of weeks when all Operators have their schedules and contracts we at Barbados Travel Deals, will be able to uncover the right holiday at the right price for you.

We British think of Christmas as cold and snowy with log fires, so why not try Christmas with a difference. Barbados at Christmas is the ideal place to spend a tropical Christmas holiday - the warm sunshine, stunning beaches, cool cocktails with your Christmas dinner or a Caribbean variation, and plenty to do or time to relax away from the stress you may feel at home. 

Christmas in Barbados is magical. The Bajans celebrate in a religious and in a community-based, festive way.

A wonderful heart-warming service for locals and tourists alike, is the ‘Carols by Candlelight’ service, held at Ilaro Court, the Prime Minister’s home grounds, with everyone holding a lit candle and singing all the traditional Christmas Carols for a few hours, and on Christmas morning, it is a tradition in Barbados at Christmas to stroll through Queens Park in the capital, Bridgetown, watching the stilt-walkers and entertainers and the various dress of people, from past colonial times to modern Europe.

You must book your Barbados Christmas holidays very early to get the best accommodation for Christmas in Barbados and almost all hotels have a minimum stay of 7 days with some even requiring 10 or 14 for example Sandy Lane with its A-list guest list to gush over and it’s wow-factor Barbados Christmas beach barbecue. Many return visitors are well aware of the delights of a Bajan Christmas. This is the height of the peak season.

Christmas is a wonderful time to take your Barbados holidays as traditional festive parades line the street in Bridgetown and around the city.  Indeed, just as we do in the UK, Barbadians love nothing more than to decorate their homes with Christmas paraphernalia. 

The weather in Barbados at Christmas time is a tad warmer than the UK, reaching the mid seventies with a wonderful nine hours of sunshine a day. 

There is always something to see, do and take part in at Christmas time in Barbados with a variety of music and dining events and even a market on Christmas Day.  Try Brighton Farmers Market where you can buy locally grown produce and crafts whilst taking a leisurely breakfast under the trees on Christmas morning.  If you are into thoroughbred horse racing, 27th Dec sees the Third Diamonds International / Mont Blanc Challenge at the Garrison Savannah.  On the other hand, you could just relax on a sun-drenched Barbados beach sipping cocktails and exchanging Christmas gifts. 

Christmas in Barbados…a dream come true.  View our luxury Barbados hotels and Barbados villas and call for Christmas availablilty.
