car rental

Hi I am coming to Maurituis in October and want to hire a car for three days. is it cheaper to hire a car once we get there or pre book a car I have been quoted £78 for 3 days car hire.

I am staying at Le Tropical and the pick up is in Curepip does anyone know how far that is from my hotel.

Any good local tours operators for boat trips. When we came 14 years ago we wnet on a boat trip with fish meal to an island cant remember where we booked it from or what price you can pay for a trip like this?

thanks ,Mark

Hi Mark,

You have to pick the car up from Curepipe??

Thats in the centre and you are on the east coast. A long way away....

Don't the company deliver to your hotel?

As for boat trips, wait until you arrive in Mauritius. Lots of choice you really don't need to prebook.

The car hire company really should deliver the car to you, going to Curepipe to collect is not the best idea..

thanks it was because I tried to book one through a company in england and Curepip was the drop off point, maybe I need to contact them direct and ask them to deliver to the hotel direct,thanks

Hope you can arrange that as it would be much better. We can always recommend a local company that Bronia and I use regularly if you have problems arranging pick up/drop off.

Mark,

There will probably be additional delivery and collection charges.

Price sounds about right though.

HI yes we are staying at Le Tropical for 10 days but I just want to hire a car for a few days and the £78 was what I was quoted.

If you can give me a local contact and idea of price
