Drivers licence in Fiji

Do we need an internation drivers licence to hire a car in Fiji we are staying on Denarau Island but want to drive around Nadi and see a few places, and do I have to take an adapter for charges, hairdryers etc?

Thanks Kaz

No need for an International drivers licence and no need for adapters.

Just be careful driving over there. Roads are not very good and drivers aren't very careful. Also need to look out for animals on the road if you venture out of Nadi.

Thats right, no need for international license or adaptors. However when hiring a car ALWAYS take the excess cover. As above Fiji roads are awful, and can if not careful cause accidental damage to cars. It is very easy to drive around fiji but there are many many potholes, and speedhumps! I would always hire a car from one of the major hire companies, but definately not Europcar, however that is just from my past experience.
