Currencies that taxi drivers accept?

Hi, do taxi drivers accept GBP? If not, which is the best currency to pay with?

Many thanks

Hi snowman,

Some accept GBP some not. Euro and Usd are widely accepted.

If your currency is GBP, then you could just exchange it here at a Money Changer, to Seychelles Rupees to use for taxis etc, and use GBP where accepted, this will help you avoid paying commission twice.

Would suggest US dollars. We did not purchase any Seychelles currency and easily got by with US dollars - even in small shops, they accepted US dollars.
