One of the main things you have to remember about car hire in the Indian Ocean islands is that the rules of the road differ from island to island. For example in Mauritius and the Seychelles, although both French speaking, you drive on the left, whereas in Madagascar you drive on the right. In almost all cases you will have to have an International Driving License - this is a prerequisite you can't get around. Our representative will be able to give you details about any local requirements when you make your booking.
One good example of special local requirements when using car hire in the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius is that if you want to park in the centre of Port Louis you need to purchase a special parking ticket, available from filling stations, on which you must mark the date, day and time and display it in your windscreen. It'll cost you five rupees for every half hour up to two hours. In the Seychelles Islands you'll need to keep your car topped up with petrol as the filling stations have a tendency to close at odd times.
If you're thinking of getting a hire car in the Indian Ocean island of Madagascar, Car Hire 4 Less will be happy to assist you. Be warned that this Indian Ocean island has only a few roads that are in good condition. Rural roads are in poor condition and are unmarked. They can be quite dangerous in the rainy season, especially in the North of the island.
Madagascar id recovering from a period of economic disaster, and armed attacks have occasionally occurred on the RN7 highway, near the Isalo Reserve in the Southwest. Road travel and hiking in the southern region of the country between Fianarantsoa and Tulear are the activities most vulnerable to this type of incident. Be sure to take the advice of our local representative and carry some identification with you at all times.
It is possible to hire a car on the Indian Ocean Maldives, but be advised that there are few roads and even the locals go from place to place by boat. Sri Lanka is another Indian Ocean island where we are represented. You will need to present either your home-country driving licence or an international driving permit in order to obtain a temporary Sri Lankan driving licence. Our representative can advise you on this when you make your reservation.
