Top tips for hiring a car in Seychelles

  • Renting a car in Seychelles is often cheaper than getting a taxi, so it is the most economical way to get around. You will have the freedom to explore the diverse landscape, as well as untouched beaches, marine parks, and national reserves like the Cousin National Park, which is only a 2 km (1.24 mi) drive from the center of Mahé.
  • If you plan to travel with your children and are renting a car in Seychelles, then you should bring a child car seat or rent one from your car hire company. The average cost per day for a car seat or booster seat is 162 SCR (12 USD).
  • Since many of the roads in Seychelles are mountainous, you might decide to rent a four-wheel drive to negotiate the hills and other off-road tracks. You will also come across narrow roads with lots of bends, so it’s a good idea to opt for a smaller car if you plan to take these routes.
  • Navigating Mahé with your rental car is simple, as there is one ring road that encircles the island and a few roads that cross the mountains. Towards the south of the island, the road is well defined and easy to drive on, particularly when you get to the outskirts of Victoria, where you can enjoy a dual carriageway. On Praslin, you will find two roads, one of which is a ring road that takes you around the island. The other road crosses the National Park via the Valle de Mai. You will be able to get around both islands within a day in your car.
  • Book your car hire in Seychelles at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Seychelles are around 23% cheaper than other car types, on average
