Seychelles Travel Guide

The Complete Guide to the Seychelles Book accomodation

Internet, Phone & Electricity



Most resorts, hotels, and guesthouses in the Seychelles now have WiFi. Internet cafés are also available on the three main islands of Mahé, Praslin, and La Digue. Alternatively, you have the option of purchasing a local SIM card (e.g. Airtel or Cable Wireless) on-site in the Seychelles. This can easily be inserted into your phone or modem, allowing you to surf. If you'd like to use the internet via your own provider, you should inform yourself in advance about international roaming charges.

At some accommodations, the only internet available is via iSurf, which has limited data volume. This system usually involves direct access to data from your accommodation or purchase of an iSurf prepaid card.

Connectivity in the Seychelles is quite well-developed. There are currently two telephone providers who use a GSM standard connection: Airtel and Cable Wireless. The international roaming agreement between the Seychelles and other countries is steadily being improved and expanded. Coin and card telephones are also available in all localities.

The international code for the Seychelles is +248.



On all Seychelles islands, they use 220/240 volts AC and the British three-pin socket type (13 amps). Anyone not travelling from a country that uses this socket type (UK, Ireland, Hong Kong and others), should buy an adaptor in advance. It is also recommended that you bring a multi-socket adaptor from home to charge several devices at once.
