Just Barbados – the latest situation

Like everyone else in the country, we at Just Barbados have had a very challenging 6 months. I am pleased to say that we are all well although, as you can imagine, our business has been badly affected, The one fortunate thing about the timing of the Covid-19 outbreak is that it came to the UK after the vast majority of our holidays to the Caribbean in the winter of 2019/20 had been safely and happily completed.

Now that September is upon us it would be normal to expect our clients to be thinking about a winter trip to the Caribbean. These are not normal times but Barbados as an island is making plans to receive visitors this winter with strict safety protocols and procedures in place of course.

We as a company would be delighted to talk to you at any time about the possibility of a holiday in this beautiful island – or any other of the islands we cover. We all hope for progress towards a more normal travel environment and we are of course able to give you full and accurate information about all aspects of any holiday you may wish to discuss.

Any holiday booked for this coming winter or for next Spring would of course be fully protected financially under our ATOL licence.

Some thoughts from the owners of Just Barbados – Gerry & Janet Copsey

I first visited Barbados in 1981 to play cricket. I loved everything about the island – the friendly people, the iconic beaches and beach bars, the great food and of course the sun. Janet and I have been to the island many times since and in 2014 we added ‘Just Barbados’ to the ‘Just Grenada Group’.

Barbados was the original Caribbean island for UK visitors and it remains a firm favourite today. It has developed a great deal since 1981 but all the things that made it so appealing all those years ago are still at the heart of the ‘sunshine island’.

We invite you to ring us or our team to talk about Barbados – we would love to arrange a holiday for you to this beautiful island. We would be delighted to share our knowledge and help you to enjoy Barbados as much as we always do.

Perhaps you might like to visit more than one property or island on your trip…?

  • We have a wide range of properties to offer in Barbados – there really is somewhere to suit every person, every budget and every style. We know them all personally and will be delighted to advise you in detail.
  • Many of our clients choose to divide their time on Barbados between different properties – the best way to see the contrasting areas of Barbados.
  • All of our holidays are tailor-made – but that does NOT mean expensive. Barbados has its share of fabulous 5-star hotels and restaurants, but we know places to stay and restaurants to eat at which are a quarter of the price of the top-end places.
  • We can easily arrange a lovely holiday in Barbados with prices starting from less than £1400 per person.

How about visiting another Caribbean island as part of your holiday? Our last trip included Bequia and Barbados!


Port Elizabeth, Bequia                                                             Maxwell Beach, Barbados

It’s a long way to the Caribbean – so why not enjoy two or even three islands as part of your Barbados holiday? Here are a few examples of the many lovely two and three centre holidays we can arrange, with simple, speedy transfers between the islands…

  • Barbados & Bequia – One of our favourite combinations – two contrasting islands but both with beautiful beaches, wonderful local restaurants and delightful people. More…
  • Barbados, Bequia & Grenada – Even more contrasts – adding the charm of Barbados to the delights of its two neighbours. More…
  • Barbados & St Lucia – The gorgeous beaches and fascinating rainforest of Barbados combined with the stunning Pitons and lush plantations of St Lucia – wonderful. More…

Some of the nice things of our customers say about their holiday…

Your knowledge of Barbados was amazing and your service was perfect. Your recommendation of the hotel we stayed in was spot on – we had the best holiday ever. Thanks so much.

JS – York

“Would never have thought of doing a twin-centre trip but you gave us the confidence to do it. What a fantastic experience Barbados & Barbados tuned out to be – it felt like 2 holidays!”
