Are there any special requirements for driving or hiring a car in Seychelles?

In the Seychelles you drive on the left and roads are generally in good condition. Street lights are quite rare in rural areas and there is a potential of pedestrians and animals in the road so we advise to avoid driving at night if you can. Some roads can be quite narrow and in some places, the edge of the road can just be a drop. Overtaking is very common in the Seychelles, so don’t be alarmed if others pass you while driving.
