Things to keep in mind when renting a car in Mauritius.
Below we have listed a few general hints & tips that may be good to keep in mind when renting a car in Mauritius.
Whenever you rent a car in Mauritius, regardless of the company, always make sure that you get a copy of the rental contract. You will need it in case of an accident, or if a police officer would carry out a random traffic control check.
Before signing a rental contract, check if there are any dents or scratches on the car, and make sure that they are properly registered in the rental contract. This will help in avoiding a costly surprise when returning the car.
Fill up on petrol if heading south of La Preneuse. Gas stations are few and far between in the south west of Mauritius, with virtually none available in the mountaineous regions.
Car rental agencies in Mauritius typically want your full credit card details, including the three digit cvv code and your residential address outside of Mauritius. Although this is sensitive personal data, virtually all car rental companies in Mauritius operate this way.
There have unfortunately been cases of credit card fraud in Mauritius in the past, why it is important to carefully select your car rental agency. If you receive an offer that seem to be too good to be true – that’s typically what it is.
Any licensed car rental agency should have a valid business registration number, a valid VAT number and a Tourist Enterprise License issued by the Government of Mauritius.
Car rental agencies in Mauritius that operate without a Tourist Enterprise License are illegal businesses and should always be avoided.
