    I am spending this christmas in Seychelles with family (incl. 2 teenagers).
    I am sorted with my flights and accommodation.
    Trying to figure out car hire and local SIM / eSIM for data connectivity.
    I was OK with hiring car from local supplier in MRU but not so sure about SEZ but seems I am out of luck as many on premises car hire oprening hours are strange particlarly at weekends!

    1) What is my choice for a local SIM. Has anyone used – Orange Holiday World?
    Holafly seems to provide unlimited DATA but could not confirm FUP.

    2) Should I stick to local car hire COMPANY (have Amex Platinum Insurance + Curve Metal) or likes of Avis?

    3) Any other destination advice or must do for Winter get-away.

    airalo for an eSIM. I have used it in other countries without a problem, in the Seychelles we just stuck to the hotel wifi.

    For visiting syechelles one must apply in advance via Seychelles Electronic Border System
    which is complusory (10 Euro per person) and add the same time can do add-on service and get AIrtel or C&W SIM (and eSIM for both).

    so really no need to buy Orange Holiday World or any other option as SIM can be collected at Airport kiosk.

    I am now looking to book a day hire taxi as I land quite early in morning and check in is after the noon time!
    Can anyone suggest a day hotel or similar option in SEZ?
