A different kind of dollar

The Barbadian dollar has been around since 1935 and like its American counterpart it is made up of 100 cents. Keep hold of all the cents you get in your change, since these – like British pennies – are still useful for smaller purchases, such as drinks and snacks.

Service charges are typically included in your bill, so you won’t need to add anything onto this, unless your service was particularly good. In this case, you can leave around 5 BBD, or approximately 10% of your bill.

Commonly used banknotes

Banknotes for the Barbadian dollar are available for the value of 2 (blue), 5 (green), 10 (brown), 20 (purple), 50 (orange) and 100 (grey) dollar bills. The 5-dollar note features a cricket ball and stumps as part of the design, showing the strong British influence on the Barbadian culture.
