Top tips for hiring a car in Mayotte

  • Mayotte car rentals allow you to explore this beautiful French archipelago at your own pace. You can drive to different places with no public transportation coverage. Unlike public transport, you can stop wherever you need and conveniently move around with as much luggage as possible. From Mamoudzou, the economic capital of Mayotte, you can embark on an exciting drive to Dzaoudzi, approximately 6 miles away, and explore its charming old town, visit the lively market, or relax on the beautiful beaches or take a scenic drive to the village of Bandrélé, 12.4 miles from the capital, to witness the stunning views from Mount Choungui and immerse yourself in the local culture at the traditional Malagasy market.
  • There are multiple car rental locations across Mayotte. If you’re flying into the French archipelago, you’ll most likely land at Dzaoudzi–Pamandzi International Airport (DZA). Providers like Budget and Europcar have a desk at the airport. You’ll also find rental vehicles in locations like Mamoudzou, Dzaoudzi city center, Boueni, Chirongui, and Bandrele.
  • The state of roads in Mayotte is generally poor. Most roads are narrow and winding, with speed bumps and potholes. The main roads in Mayotte are paved but not well-maintained. Secondary roads are unpaved and can be dusty and difficult to drive on, especially during the dry season. They also get slippery during the rainy season. If you plan to drive in Mayotte, be prepared for slow driving and rough roads. Consider a car with good ground clearance, such as an SUV.
  • Navigating Mayotte isn’t that challenging. Most road signs are bilingual, in French and English. If you are self-driving, a GPS or offline map may be helpful since you are unfamiliar with most places in the nation. An offline map is ideal because of poor internet connectivity, especially outside the main cities. If you are not okay with self-driving, some car rentals in Mayotte provide the option to have an additional driver for a fee.
  • Book your car hire in Mayotte at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Mayotte are around 24% cheaper than other car types, on average
