Taxi Travel

Independently owned taxis operate on Mahé and Praslin (as do a handful on La Digue) and can (sometimes) be hailed from the street, at designated taxi stands, or by phoning (most reliable). They're expensive, however, and it's advised to request a metered ride. The first kilometer is Rs25, after that Rs23. There's no night or weekend charge, and each piece of luggage is an additional Rs10. Following are sample approximate fares from the airport to: Victoria, Rs300; Beau Vallon, Rs500; Anse Soleil, Rs550. If there's no meter, agree on a price before getting in. You can also organize a half-day fixed rate "tour" with a taxi driver. A normal rate would be about US$190 for a full day. All hotels have numbers of reliable drivers.
