If your rental is below 3 months, you do not need an International Driving License. You can use your normal driving license. However if you plan on renting a car for more than 3 months you are required to have an International Driving License or a Temporary local Driving License.

This application can be done through the Seychelles Licensing Authority, which is based at the Orion Building, in Victoria. The whole application normally takes less than an hour.

The deposit is typically € 300 – €1200. Even if you choose an insurance package with a lower deductible, you may still need to pay the full deposit. The policy depends on the circumstances; specific information is displayed during the booking process. In case of an accident, your entire deposit may be withheld. However, if you booked a package with a lower deductible, we will reimburse you later so that you effectively only pay for damages up to deductible you chose at the time of booking. 

7. When to pay the Deposit?

You can pay the deposit when you pick up the car either in cash (in USD, EUR or UKP) or by credit card. The amount may be blocked on your credit card throughout the rental period, effectively lowering your spending limit. Therefore, please make sure that the full amount is available on your card and that the owner of the card is present at the time of pick-up. If the car is brought back in the same condition as when you picked it up, you will receive the full amount back.

We do not guarantee a full tank at the time of pick-up. Unless specifically requested by client. However, we do guarantee that there is enough fuel in the tank to reach the next filling station. The car must be given back with the same amount of fuel as it had when it was handed over to you.
