Airport Car Hire

Hire a car at Mauritius Airport! Then drive to Grand Bay to enjoy the beaches, bars, and restaurants, the laid-back island atmosphere and lively nightlife. Pereybère is another great beach that’s easy to reach with your rental. At a lot of beaches, you can take a boat trip, scuba dive, water ski, or go dolphin and whale watching. You can also head inland to take a jungle tour.

There’s a beautiful Maheswarnath Hindu temple in the village of Triolet, and if you’re travelling with kids, take a day trip to see the animals at the Vanille Réserve des Mascareignes. The village of Flacq has a terrific food market, perfect for lunch on the go. And be sure to try Mauritian cuisine—it’s a delicious mix of Indian, French, and African influences.

Mauritius isn’t big, but there’s so much to explore. So why not get a longer term car rental, extend your vacation, and discover more? You can even pick up your car at Mauritius Airport and drop it off at a different location. Start planning your adventure now!

Definitely rent a car in Mauritius, it's easy to get around and enables you to go and see all the wonderful places this country has to offer. If using google maps add on extra time to your journey as the roads are small and people drive slowly.
