Flying to Barbados from Manchester is nice and easy as you'll be able to choose from two direct services to Bridgetown, Barbados' international airport. Both these services, offered by Thomson Airways and Virgin Atlantic, take between eight and nine hours, just remember to allow time extra time on the other side to get to your Barbados hotel.
There's also the option to fly indirectly to Barbados from Manchester, but indirect routes can involve a number of stopovers and take considerably more time.
Once you touchdown in Barbados, you'll find cheap bus services that run to popular spots along the coast such as Bridgetown, Holetown and Speightstown as well as an abundance of taxis on hand at the airport.
If the flights on offer from Manchester aren't suitable, the next best option is to travel to London Gatwick where you'll find daily direct departures to Barbados with the likes of British Airways, Thomson Airways and Virgin Atlantic.

Outside of this peak period you'll still find warm weather and a calm Caribbean sea, but you'll pay less for the privilege of enjoying it all! It can be a bit wetter, mind, but downpours never last that long.
