    • Stay and car rental in mauritius

      by Jmurphy60 Online Now Apr 15, 2014 at 11:33 PM

      Hi all,

      i wanted to share my experience with you and would like to get some feedback also from people who have been in Mauritius for holidays. I have been at a nice guest house in the north and enjoyed a very peaceful and calm stay at a very reasonable price. But i have had some difficulties with big car rental agency which forced me to change same and rent with another car rental company. I've rented with one well known rental company but in the end the conditions had nothing to do with what we agreed at the beginning and they were very rude and aggressive.

      In the end another couple who were also on holiday at the same guest house advice us to rent with one National Car Hire Mauritius and i was fully satisfied. They were on time and even gave us a nice package on the overall rental. We've got almost 15% discount on the 3 weeks rental and no charge were to be paid for delivery of the car. If anyone has encountered such same problem it would be nice to get some feedback. The overall experience make us understand that big brands are not always the best and are very expensive also.

      Thanks for sharing your experience.

      Which time of the year do the locals do a lot of travels and which time of the year it is less touristy in general? I am not tied to a certain time to spend my holidays but would like them from mid-Jan. to mid april, to escape for a while from the cold in Europe.
      Has anyone travelled around without hotel booking, just finding something as you get there (therefore a low-season is necessary)?Tks

      February in Mauritius

      by Maykoopman Online Now Aug 30, 2013 at 11:22 AM

      Is February a good time to visit Mauritius? I want to travel around by local bus and occasionally enjoy a nice beach but I am not a beach person, I rather discover things. Has anyone travelled around there in guest houses, if I estimate a budget of 60 Euros for accomodation and eating around local places should this be reasonable? I am not interested in resorts, I rather mingle with the locals.

      Another thing, since I wanna sleep on beaches, is mosquitos, gnats and other blood suckers a big issue in Mauritius?

    • visiting Mauritius in January...

      by samuel_m Online Now May 27, 2012 at 12:34 PM


      My wife and I are from California and are looking to travel to Mauritius over the winter break. We were hoping to come in early to mid January 2013 for about 7-10 days but are having second thoughts after reading online about the possibility of cyclones hitting the island around this time.

      I would like to know from folks about how high the risk of a cyclone is this time of year? How often do they hit? Even if there is no cyclone, does it tend to rain a lot this time of year? Also, does the weather vary depending on which side of the island you stay? Since we are going to be traveling clear around to the other side of the world, the last thing we would want to have happen is for us to run into severe weather while we are there!

      Any insights folks can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
