Top tips for renting a car in Mahé

  • As with any central business district, Mahé experiences traffic snarl-ups for some specific hours. Traffic starts building up around 7:30 am to 8:30 am and the in the late afternoons between 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Still, you will likely experience some traffic on Saturday mornings, between 12:00 and 1:00 pm, but it is not as slow as on weekdays. It might thus be helpful if you plan to start your tour outside these hours.
  • There are no streetlights in some parts of Mahé, particularly rural areas. Therefore, it can be dangerous to drive at night for both the driver and pedestrians, a reason why local authorities strictly implement their headline regulations. You are thus required to turn on your headlights when driving between 6:30 pm and 5:45 am. You can turn on either the white or yellow light.
  • You will be driving on the left side of the road, and vehicles from the right get priority. The roads are relatively easy to drive on, although most are narrow and curvy. Driving on steep mountainous roads requires courage, confidence, and fantastic clutch skills. If it is your first time here, keep it slow as you take time to learn the roads.
  • Mahé features one ring road around the island and a few other roads crossing the mountains. Although this ring road is very narrow and full of curves, you do not have to worry as it is relatively easy to drive on. The road becomes well-defined towards the south and southeast, making it easy to navigate. Nevertheless, as you drive, remember that some bridges in rural areas are too narrow to allow the passage of two cars.
