renting a car

I will be staying at Maia for 5 nights as part of my upcoming honeymoon. How important is it to have a car on Mahe? It seems like there are a lot of great beaches and stuff, and it would be nice to be mobile? Are they pretty easy to rent at the airport upon arrival? Thanks for any help!

Also any day trips or must do things on Mahe would be greatly appreciated. We are there aug 21 thru 26th.

When I go to Seychelles I think twice before renting a car. In Mahe you can use either the bus service which is running from 6 am to 7 pm, either the car rental. A mix between these two was the best solution for me. There are several rent a car companies at the airport. I used Sixt in the past and I paid for a Kia Rio 38 euro per day. Also the buses are very useful, you can find timetables and routes at Victoria Terminal.

I would take a taxi on arrival. Hire a car once you at Maia. Hibiscus Cars and Palm Cars are in the area, reliable friendly service. Ask at reception or google them. You definelty need to visit the island!
