small children and car hiring

Beitragvon samson » Do Jan 19, 2006 10:46

Hello Mauritius!

In few days we are flying to Mauricius. We would like to
rent a small car ( Fiat Punto or ... ) with baby seat(s).
Can you give me some ideas where to pre - book a car via
mail or internet to get a fair deal for longer rent - 20 days.

We are used to travel, but do we need to be extra careful
about something ( desease, insects....) when being on Mauritius
with small children ( age 1 and 3 )?

Thanks in advance and best regards
from cold Ljubljana in Slovenia.

Hi Samo,

firstly, you don't need to take any special precautions for the little ones. There are no harmful deseases or animals on the island. There can be some moscito's, but there is no Malaria on MRU.
However, make sure that you have shoes at hand to protect your family's feet on the beach and in the sea, as you have coralpieces, urchins and some harmful fish (not very likely to step on) that you surely do not want to touch with bare feet.

You should also consider whether it is a good idea to rent a car on MRU. The street conditions vary, they have left side trafic as in the UK and there is no cost argument for a car rental. If you hire a taxi for one day, you will have to pay between 50 and 60€, depending on the distance or tour. The cost for the rental car will be around the same if you take into account that gas is available at about the same price as in Europe. And: as the driver you will not be able to do some sightseeing on the way.
My suggestion clearly is to use taxis, as it costs about the same, but it is much more relaxing.

Kind regards

Tommy

many thanks Tommy!

you know, when we were traveling alone as a couple
we were mostly thinking about what happends today.
Now when we have kids we started worrying, taking
all measures in our objective.

We will need a car on a daily bases to go to the beach
and also to escape for the hotest hours.

Thanks for advices and best regards to you.

Samo
