Barbados currency

The currency of Barbados is the Barbados Dollar (BBD).

When planning your Barbados vacation remember that the Barbados Dollar is converted at the rate of $1.98 BDS to $1.00 U.S.

The Barbados Dollar is fixed to the U.S Dollar and does not fluctuate. Its rate to other currencies fluctuates daily based on their fluctuations relative to the U.S. Dollar.

On your travels around Barbados you will find that US currency is accepted across the island, and most stores and restaurants accept major credit cards. Of course most Barbados hotels and other lodgings also accept these various forms of payment.

Barbados banknotes are issued in the following denominations: 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100 Dollars. In 2022 the Central Bank of Barbados released an attractive new series of bank notes in these same denominations.
Barbados coins are issued as 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents and 1 Dollar.
