Driving in MAURITIUS.

Hello

Recently been to Mauritius and Had an amazing holiday. I strongly recommend you to drive and go around the island. You can really capture great shots at different times of the day. My favourite shots were at Tamarin at sunset.
Driving is safe but just be careful as it can get quite busy in the morning during peak hours. You can find a few car rental companies but also always book with a registered one (the ones with yellow numbers). As for me I booked with CAR RENTAL Got a really good deal and great personalized service.

Driving in Port Louis

Good information Chris,

Did you drive in Port Louis as well? if so I am sure you noticed the difference from the south...

I have great fun trying to 'miss the motorcyclists' and those new battery driven bikes are a real danger.

That is true. One has to drive very carefully, especially at night.

before I step into a taxi I have to take a lot of cold beer :lol: maybe a bottle of vodka would help but I don't want to put a foot in a taxi.
have to admit that I get used to drive on the wrong side now. Only the motorbikes overtaking on the wrong side you have to take care of....or they want to overtake on the right side when you show that you turn right.

Hi Wickus

I love your picture of the Irish Pub on your web site - pity it is not here in Mauritius!!!
Where exactly is it? Could do with a good pint of stout.

Guess I have to convince my ex boss from the pub a bit more. He has already some pubs, one in crete greece. I told him he even can play golf here. Wonder how I can get an irish guy open another pub here.
Also another irish friend who has had an irish pub in Germany won't make one here.
Guess we have to do something about it ;-)

Hi Chris

What is the average price per day to hire a small car in Australian dollar at the same place that you hired your car?

Thanks Mate

Alex

hi,

can't say for sure, only heard at avis its about 85 euro incl. insurance for an minivan, 6-7 persons. The currency can be converted on xe.com
You can have it also cheaper, but need to be careful that you won't get some trash.

Thanks Wickus

It is a bit confusing for us Ozzies when it comes to converting Euros to Australian dollar.

I have only been on this forum only recently, but I can see that you have a Mauritian Flag, but you speak of pub in Irland ?

Are you from Mauritius or an Expatriate Mauritian ? Just curious :mrgreen:

Not many Mauritians on this forum?

Cheers

Alex
