Indian Ruppe to Mauritus Rupee

Hi,

We are travelling to Mauritius this June on a family vacation and need some guidance on currency conversion.

Shall I first buy USD and then convert it to MUR at airport or will Indian Rupee conversion be a better deal at the airport?

Jus change your Indian Rupees to Mauritian rupees at the airport in Mauritius.

The $ has no special significance in Mauritius and you will lose out by converting your money twice.

Check out xe.com for latest currency conversion rates.

Hello IndiaGoesGlobal

There is no point in changing your Indian rupee into USD$ before departure, no benefit whatsoever.

Change your curency into M Rupee in MRU arrivals Hall, after p/port and customs control just before the exit, there are a few bureau de change desk,s there all touting for your business- Shibani & Barclays inc. Their rate is usually IME better and commission free !

Hope you have a great family vacation in Mauritius

Regards

Hello

Banks do not deal in indian rupees at their Forex bureau, so would advise you to bring hard currencies such as the USD and EURO.However You can use your visa/mastercard/amex/diners credit card to obtain mauritian rupees at ATMS across the island.

Kaspi,

Will INR not be converted to MUR at the airport ? Is that what you are saying?

If Yes, I think you maybe be right. My travel agent told me the same and asked me to either carry USD or use the ATM.

I would stil prefer if someone can let me know about the actual thing.
