All cars booked with us in Mauritius come with a free GPS device. But not just any GPS device! We put a lot of effort into customizing our GPS with useful features for tourists. We recorded an audio guide that will let you know when you're driving near a place worth seeing. We also included a list of beautiful, publicly accessible beaches. Just select the closest one and let the voice instructions guide you to it! Last but not least we maintain a list of known speed traps so that the device can warn you when you are driving too fast.
Why you should drive a car in Mauritius
Mauritius, is a 2040 square-kilometre island full of surprises, which are just waiting to be discovered. Each region of the island offers a unique perspective for all travelers. The north is full of unique vegetation that cannot be found in the interior of the island. The west entices visitors with its beautiful white-sand beaches. Finally, the eastern part of the island remains almost untouched by visitors and you will hardly see any tourists. When you rent a car in Mauritius, you have the ability to explore all these different facets of the island. Because the island is so small, you are probably asking yourself whether it is possible to travel the country using public transportation. Our answer is: of course! Driving around Mauritius in a public bus is quite an experience. However renting a vehicle provides you the freedom to explore unencumbered.
Travelling Mauritius by bus may provide some travelers with unique experience; however they will have to deal with crowded vehicles that have no air condition, and are sometimes delayed because of flat tires; visitors will also have to decipher difficult-to-understand schedules. Maki Car Rental can take some of the guess work out of your vacation. Many of our rental car customers in Mauritius have enjoyed driving one of our modern rental cars with air conditioning. Furthermore, they were able to get off the beaten path and visit places where public transport was not available. For example the Tamarind Falls is one of the most beautiful places in Mauritius. But you can get to them only by car. Renting a car will also allow you to visit the capital of Mauritius, Port Louis, and enjoy one of the horse races, which take place there. If you try to drive there by taxi, be prepared to pay some excessively high rates. Sometimes taxi drivers even charge extra for the use of air conditioning or they try to renegotiate the price. Unfortunately there are no taximeters in Mauritius! Since our car rental fees starts at 25€ per day, it becomes extremely affordable to travel throughout the island, without having to rely on anyone else. We even make the rental process easy for you by delivering your car right to your hotel or to Mauritius airport. In the northern part of the island, this service is even totally free of charge! In case you're asking yourself if you need an international drivers licence before hitting the roads in Mauritius, don't worry, for most people this should not be a problem. If it is possible to make some sense of your licence without special language skills, you are good to go with your domestic drivers licence. If you have more questions regarding the use of you licence or road rules in Mauitius, please take a moment to read our "Frequently Asked Questions."
Why you should get your rental car from us
Do you appreciate a professional service, transparent pricing and modern cars but are still reluctant to pay a fortune for a rental from other international companies like Europcar, Sixt, and Avis? Then you should definitely rent a car with us. All our prices include fully comprehensive insurance, taxes and delivery costs. While completing your online booking you can also add a GPS satellite navigation system (more info below) or a baby seat for only 3 Euro per day; child seats (booster) are available free of charge. If you have any questions concerning any of our cars, or our booking process, you can reach our service center by phone, via email or by using our live chat service. If you are already in Mauritius, you might want to call our local Mauritian phone number.
Maki Car Rental works with multiple subcontractors in Mauritius that have proven themselves as trustworthy and reliable over the years. In case something does go wrong with your rental, though, we will help you from a neutral perspective. An advantage of us having multiple subcontractors is that we will forward your booking to the subcontractor that has the cheapest delivery fees to your hotel. Therefore, please understand that delivery fees can be different for each car model and also depend on availability.
