Mauritius Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Located on the main island of the Mauritius archipelago, the nation’s largest airport is only a stone’s throw away from many of its most notable tourist attractions. In addition to world-class beaches that make people travel halfway across the world, there are also nature preserves and plenty of culture to be discovered. These are three of the most interesting attractions of Mauritius:

  • Port Louis. Mauritius is all about the beach, but there’s also plenty of history and culture to be found, and the best place to explore it is Port Louis. The capital and largest city, it is known for landmarks like Aapravasi Ghat, a landing point of contracted Indian laborers who were the ancestors of the majority of the island’s present-day population (it is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the Citadelle Fort, and Port Louis Cathedral.
  • Black River Gorges. A national park about a 45-minute drive south of Port Louis, Black River Gorges is the best place to enjoy Mauritius’ wild nature. Made up of both tropical rainforest and drier heathland, it has about 60 km (37 miles) of hiking trails and is notable for its diversity of flora and fauna that includes species like the Mauritian flying fox and pink pigeon. If you like the national park, you might also enjoy the neighboring Color Valley Nature Park which is just to the east.
  • Grand Bay. There’s plenty of serene coastal spots in Mauritius, but if you’re looking for a more lively experience, the town of Grand Bay (also spelled Grand Baie) might be for you. Notable for its developed coastline and energetic nightlife, it is also known for its orchards, as well as great diving. The trip from Port Louis takes about 30 minutes by car.

Google Maps isn't up-to-date everywhere, especially in areas where roads have been changed, eg. new or re-designed roundabouts, bridges, turning lanes, roads, et cetera. Google Maps helps a lot (we'd have been, literally, lost many times without it), but be sure to pay attention to road signs, too. Familiarize yourself with what road markings mean before you start driving; for example, know and follow the arrows when entering a roundabout, and know what the zig-zag lines mean that sometimes appear in the middle of the road (where passing is prohibited) and along the side of the road (where parking is prohibited). Enjoy the excellent roads and motorways; be especially careful in lanes.

While North Mauritius has the older settlements and resorts and housing the drive along the sea front has limited views as residences n hotels block the sea views on other hand the western area of Flic Flac beaches are more modern , newer construction and better views with livelier late night open cafés - but Mauritius is not Phuket - its to stick to your resort n relax n early tucking in nights n not all night or late night revellers bar hopping .

Taxis are very expensive. If you use the rental car for a to and return trip once a day you've basically covered the cost of a taxi. It is worth noting that if you are not used to traveling on narrow roads with drivers that consider traffic rules more of suggestions then laws I would not suggest renting a car. For the most part the highways are a decent width. Once you get of the highways the roads are about 8 ft wide. Going through the forest and up and down the mountains can be challenging. Also be prepared for cars to stop in the middle of the road and park so they can grab something to eat at a roadside shop. Sometimes they'll stop in the middle of the road facing the wrong direction. It was foreign to me but I suppose it could be common place in other countries.

I would recommend it. Make sure you get full insurance through a broker to avoid any surprise when giving the car back. Driving in Mauritius is a bit "chaotic" and it is very probably you might have a scratch or bump on the car. To avoid paying a penalty, get full insurance. The communication was overall good, they use live chat and whatsapp which made it simple. However, the did not really reply my emails and had to chase them.
