Your car rental journey in Mauritius starts here
The moment you arrive in Mauritius, we’ve got your car hire needs covered. Whether you fancy a cute compact for an urban jaunt, an elegant saloon for a business trip or a spacious people carrier for a family holiday, your perfect vehicle for renting a car in Mauritius awaits. An island nation in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is located about 2,000 kilometres off the southeast coast of the African continent. Famed for its crystal-clear waters, white sandy beaches and luxury resorts, Mauritius is quite simply heaven on earth. Adventurous types can enjoy excellent hiking and scuba diving conditions, alongside vibrant local cuisine and exotic wildlife.
One option during your car rental in Mauritius is to drive to Port Louis, the capital and largest city on the main island. An intoxicating blend of countries and cultures, from India and Africa to China and the Middle East, this is the place for exploring the hustle and bustle of downtown streets and marvelling at colonial buildings from bygone eras. Markets, museums and myriad options for savouring local cuisine await you.
Away from the capital, the main lure of Mauritius is of course the 150km of white sandy beaches and lagoons which are protected from the open sea by one of the world’s largest coral reefs. Feeling extra adventurous? Just off the coast lie an abundance of uninhabited islands and islets, many of which are used as natural reserves for exotic species.
We’ll pack all the extras you need to get the most from your venture – from sat nav and super-fast mobile Wi-Fi, to our tailored range of child seats. And, you don’t have to drive full-circle: why not make the most of one way car hire?
The best car rental option in Mauritius …
At just 65 km long and 45 km wide it’s easy to see the whole island of Mauritius when you rent a car. From finding your very own secluded cove, to driving to some of the top sights such as the National History Museum, renting a car with Avis is an easy and liberating way to explore this gem of the Indian Ocean. Although it will be almost irresistible to flop on the beach during your entire stay on the island of Mauritius, those who venture out a bit will be well rewarded. Hiking through the forest and mountains of Black River Gorges National Park, for example, is an experience you won’t forget in a hurry. As Mauritius' biggest national park, it’s found at the most spectacular corner of the island – well worth a day trip.
Equally alluring when renting a car in Mauritius, is the gorgeous mountain hamlet of Chamarel with its refreshing atmosphere, delicious culinary treats and awe-inspiring waterfall. For nature lovers we also highly recommend the 26-hectare nature reserve of Île aux Aigrettes, which you’ll find about 800 metres off the coast. Home to a rich variety of wildlife species such as giant tortoise and pink pigeons, this is a fun and memorable place for the whole family.
From the hire car you drive in Mauritius, to the service you receive, our goal at Avis is to make sure that every aspect of your hiring experience is as easy and enjoyable as can be.
