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!

Drove around and through the island. Roads much better than we expected. Vigilance required at all times due to dogs and some erratic driving. Easy driving on the left and road signs either English or French.

We travelled the entire island during our 7 day trip. Found beautiful and interesting areas in Moka, Floreal Cap Maleurheux, Black River. We also discovered a delightful, traditional restaurant in Moka - Escale Creole, run by Mari and her mom..An absolute must visit

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.
