Airport Car Rental

Get your rental 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 rental car at Mauritius Airport and drop it off at a different location. Start planning your adventure now!
