The Seychelles islands have become a favorite destination for people all over the world who would like to relax, enjoy and spend their vacation in. You’ll be glad to know that Seychelles is a place where making your own travel plans or arrangements would be a breeze.
If you have decided to plan your trip without asking help from a travel agency, also for you to save up on expenses, you should first get documentation and necessary information from the Seychelles Tourist Office or even from Air Seychelles. The first thing you would need to know is the cost of air tickets to Seychelles which you may choose to buy from Air Seychelles or the travel agency of your choice. Then you have to rent a car as your modes of transportation in Seychelles (aside from the boats or yachts) and of course, never forget your accommodation. A bungalow, a guest house, hotels, etc. there are a number of choices for you in Seychelles but you have to book in advance to ensure that you arrive in the islands with a place to stay in.
Feel free to visit the website of the Seychelles Tourism Marketing Authority or STMA to find out about all the information you need regarding where to go in Seychelles, activities that you can participate in, and a lot more.
In terms of accommodation choices, hotels are normally the most popular choice for travelers. You may take travel agency brochures for you to know the different hotels available in Seychelles. Compare not only their prices but also the amenities they would offer you. Most of the hotels in Seychelles have really beautiful views and are just a short walk from the beach. Take note though that there are a few islands that only have a single hotel such as Denis Island, Bird Island, Silhoutte, D’Arros, Desroches, Frigate, etc.
Another type of accommodation you can stay in would be guest-houses, in other words apartments, bungalows, and bed-sitters that offer you very reasonable rates so if you are on a tight budget, choose these over hotels. This just means that a Seychelles trip is not only for the wealthy but also for the middle-class vacationers. The newer guesthouses normally offer you comfort and are completely furnished for you not to worry about anything during your vacation in Seychelles. Camping is illegal in Seychelles so you have to choose among the two accommodation options.
