Why rent a car in the Seychelles?

Top ways to enter Seychelles

Seychelles Airport: Also known as Pointe Larue Airport after the region in which it is located, it handled nearly one million travelers in 2018. The airport has flights by around 15 different airlines, connecting it to such varied destinations as South Africa, India, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and Germany. Located about 10 km (6.2 mi) southeast of Victoria, the capital of Seychelles, the airport can be reached in 15 minutes.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Victoria. One of the smallest capitals in the world, Victoria is both a hub for exploring Mahé, the main island of Seychelles and an interesting destination in its own right. Highlights of the capital include the Natural History Museum dedicated to the fascinating flora and fauna of Seychelles, Vinayagar Hindu Temple, a lively central market, and the Victoria Botanical Gardens.
  • Beau Vallon. A lavish resort with picturesque beaches and crystal clear water, Beau Vallon is what most people probably imagine when they think of Seychelles. Famed for its spectacular sunsets, the bay is also one of the country’s snorkeling and diving hubs. Located on the northwestern coast of Mahé, the resort is practically a stone’s throw away from Victoria.
  • Nature areas. Despite being the smallest country that is considered part of Africa, tropical Seychelles is very rich in lush rainforest. On Mahé, some good places to enjoy this side of the country are Morne Seychellois National Park and St. Anne National Marine Park. The main natural highlight of the islands, however, is arguably the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve on the neighboring island of Praslin. A UNESCO World Heritage site, it is notable for its palm forests and endemic species like twin coconuts and Seychelles black parrots.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in Seychelles is the Hyundai i10, followed by the Kia Picanto and the Daihatsu Terios.

Driver license requirements

  • Seychelles recognizes valid foreign driver’s licenses from around the world if you’re visiting on a trip that’s shorter than three months. If you’re in Seychelles for longer than that period or reside there permanently, you need to acquire a local driver’s license instead; in this case, you also need to carry a Government Occupancy Permit (GOP) with you when driving in the country.
  • If your driver’s license is printed in a non-Latin alphabet (Cyrillic, Arabic, etc.), you’ll need an International Driving Permit (IDP).
  • Similarly, if your driver’s license doesn’t show your photograph, you might be required to have an IDP.
  • Even if you have an IDP, you need to also carry your original driver’s license as you might be asked to show both.
  • You must carry your driver’s license, not a copy, with you at all times. 
  • You need to have had your driver’s license for at least two years.
  • Some rental car providers charge a young driver fee for drivers between the ages of 22 and 25 and a senior driver fee for drivers over the age of 65.
  • There may be additional requirements depending on the car provider and car category, so make sure to check the rental conditions before booking.

Crossing Borders

Seychelles is an archipelago and there are no international ferry services, so the only way to leave the country is by an airplane.  

Toll roads

Although there are plans to introduce them in the future, there are no toll roads in Seychelles as of May 2021.

Car Rental Prices

  • Large cars - from $117 per day

The roads are very narrow without boarders, if you experienced driver it could be fun to drive, otherwise take a taxi

Car allows you to get around the island of Mahe. Recommend you get an automatic as the east - west roads are up and down hils with lots of twists and turns.

È molto utile noleggiare un'auto a Mahè perchè, oltre a poter visitare facilmente Victoria, sarà possibile girare comodamente tutta l'isola e risparmiare tanti soldi di taxi

Beautiful Island, some very steep hills therefore a slightly more powerful engine is required for some journeys than a 1.2litre. However, as the roads are narrow then a small car is needed. Therefore a small car with larger engine that 1.2 Litre is my suggestion.
