Airport transfers

The hotel is located seven miles from Grantley Adams International Airport (airport code BGI). The simplest way to get there is to take a taxi. But feel free to send your flight number and arrival time to the General Chair. If enough people are scheduled to arrive at the same time we may arrange a group transfer, and in any case we can let you know about others arriving at the same time so that you can arrange to share a cab.


Although most FC attendees will likely not need a visa, nationals of some countries do require a visa to travel to Barbados. If you're unsure what travel documents you need, please contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

A full list of visa requirements for each country can be downloaded from their website.
