Being able to keep in contact with friends and family all over the world is everything. Barbados is a NANP(North American Numbering Plan) international destination, which means it uses the same dialing patterns we do here in the United States. However, calls to numbers based in Barbados are considered international long distance calls. You can check to see what the cost would be for you to call Barbados using this link .
