  • Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport SLEEP OVER

    by tezzy Online Now Mar 24, 2016 at 5:16 AM

    Hi everyone.

    I am flying in to Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport from Singapore in the evening and fly off again the following morning to Reunion.

    Being a cheapskate, my question is "Can I stay on air side overnight?" If not, how about on land side?

    I will have my onward boarding pass for the Mauritius-reunion leg when departing from Singapore.

    Thanks in advance

  • 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.

    Jose

    Travelling season

    by Maykoopman Online Now Aug 30, 2013 at 11:48 AM

    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
