Thanks for the tips.

We both have a pre paid Visa debit cards. Mine is Revolut and the Mrs is Caxton. You preload them with sterling and then use in more or less any country and currency you wish. They do not charge fees just make money from the exchange rate (which is very good or you can change all your money on the card to the currency you want to spend). You can use cash points and add cash via your phone app/web connection as you like. Mine's also contactless and bitcoin is coming on them soon as well....
What a wonderful future we live in ;) :D
It is pretty sweet, certainly for us relatively wealthy types in the West. As long as its all working......

Enjoy your hols mate, sounds great. Can't really add to what others have said, I'd reemphasise the cash being king thing. Never been but been to plenty of places around the world and cash is universal. It might be worth looking into US dollars too, some places prefer it and you can get a better deal although I've no idea about Barbados.
When I was in the Caribbean, the US dollar was definitely the way to go!
