Self Catering Seychelles

There are countless options for a self catering holiday in the Seychelles, something we think offers superb value for money, for couples or families.

Self-catering in the Seychelles is very affordable indeed and for those who don't require the facilities of a resort it can be a superb option - particularly for those looking to be self-reliant, with the natural social distancing of having your own place.

Of course, depending on the location, having a car on a self-catering Seychelles holiday is a huge advantage (for grocery shopping, exploring, going out to eat).

Driving in the Seychelles is on the left, petrol is cheap and traffic is light, making driving a straightforward proposition.

As with all of our holidays to the Seychelles, this one can be tailored to suit you, so just let us know your preferences.

Which Airlines do you use?

We work with all the major airlines flying to the Seychelles.

Typically for the Seychelles we will use British Airways for direct flights. Please note that flights are currently suspended with British Airways however - during 2021. Previously there were twice-weekly flights from Heathrow (Wednesdays and Saturdays) direct to Mahe using the Dreamliner.

The flying time for direct flights is around 10 hours, making the Seychelles a little shorter flying time than going to South East Asia.

We also commonly use Emirates via Dubai, Qatar Airways via Doha and Etihad via Abu Dhabi. These all allow stopover options in the Arabian Gulf to create a multi-centre holiday.

Regional connections from across the UK are available.

Which Hotels do you use?

We're careful with our choice of resorts in the Seychelles, but we're guided by our customers also. If you have a preferred hotel, just let us know.

We specialise in boutique hotels and so we will often suggest some of our favourite smaller hotels in the Seychelles where we think these will be suitable.

Do I need a visa for the Seychelles?

If you're travelling on British Passports, no visa is required for stays of up to a month.

Please double check before travel however as visa requirements are subject to change at any time.

How long have you been organising holidays to the Seychelles?

We've been organising tailor made holidays to the Seychelles since 2008.

We use a very reliable local partner in the Seychelles for our tours and transfers and to assist our clients in the Seychelles. They are a family owned company who are one of the most established and respected local travel companies.

We keep up to date with developments in the Seychelles with regular visits and through our local contacts.

When is the best time to visit the Seychelles?

The driest time of year to visit the Seychelles is normally between June and September.

April to May and October to November can be the best value times of year to visit the Seychelles as these are shoulder-season periods.

Please see our When To Go Guide for more detailed month by month information.

Driving in the Seychelles

Driving on Mahe and Praslin is a popular option and gives you the opportunity to explore the islands.

It's an especially important consideration for those on a self-catering holiday to the Seychelles, as having transportation will allow you to go food shopping as well as be able to explore the islands and enjoy local restaurants.

They drive on the left in the Seychelles and all signs are in English, so driving is relatively straightforward.

Roads can be narrow and winding however and you will have to adapt to local driving conditions and to local drivers.

On Mahe there is one main ring road which circles the island. Once you get into the interior the mountain roads become narrower, steeper and a little bit more challenging to drive.

Traffic is light in the Seychelles but caution is advised on the mountain roads in particular - often there are no curbs and there can be steep drops.

Petrol is cheap in the Seychelles so don't expect to be spending too much on fuel. Parking is also free in downtown Victoria and shopping in the local markets also helps to keep meal costs down (rather than shopping for groceries in more touristed areas).

Car rental is only available on Mahe and Praslin and you need a valid Drivers License, be 21 or older and have been driving for a minumum of 3 years.

Bear in mind insurance excess which can range between €300 and €1,000 so it may be worth getting a waiver.

A small car such as a Hyundai Atos is usually very suitable for the Seychelles, unless you will be doing a lot of driving on mountain roads.

Seychelles & Covid

The Seychelles has been one of the destinations most keen to open up to tourism during the pandemic.

At the time of writing (Jan 2021), the Seychelles is in the process of vaccinating its entire population, which is expected to be completed by the end of March 2021.

The authorities in the Seychelles have advised they are accepting all vaccinated travellers as of January 2021.

Currently you will need to show an authentic certificate of vaccination and that two weeks have elapsed after the second dose (if applicable).

From late March 2021 it is anticipated there will no longer be a requirement to have been vaccinated in order to enter the Seychelles, as the population in the Seychelles should have received vaccinations by that stage.

You will still need to provide a negative PCR test taken less than 72 hours prior to travel. You will be allowed free movement throughout your stay in Seychelles.

Please note that all information is subject to change, so please check with us for the latest update.
