Main Facts About Seychelles

The Seychelles have their own currency - Seychelles rupee (SCR) and although some places will accept payments in US dollars, most payments are only accepted in Seychelles rupees. ATMs are common in the Seychelles, however it might be tricky to find them in more remote areas. Most places accept credit and debit card payments but it is worth checking with your hotel to find out if you will be able to pay using your card.
The official languages of the Seychelles are Seychellois Creole, English and French. Even though Seychellois Creole is the most widely spoken language in the country, most of people do speak English and/or French so if you need to ask for help or directions, you will have no problem to do so.
The temperature in the Seychelles is around 30°C all year round with sunshine but also a lot of tropical showers. Because of the islands' location though, it is very hard to predict the weather. The best time to visit the Seychelles is between April and May or October and November. You can risk going other times of year as well, but you might be greeted with a lot of tropical rain.
