Bargaining

Bargaining is not a part of life in the Seychelles; the price quoted is the price you are expected to pay. However, haggling over the price of goods (but not food) is OK in markets.

Money

In Beau Vallon village, where the road from Victoria forks west to Bel Ombre and northeast to Glacis, there are ATMs and a couple of bureaux de change.
