You have ATMs at Pereyebere - at Winners supermarket and also an MCB ATM on Pereybere precinct.

Less than a five minute bus ride.

In Grand Baie on the coastal road you have Thomas Cook Foreign Exchange and just round the corner a branch of Shibani - theres also another money changer on the opposite side of the road from Shibani.

The old branch of the MCB on the coastal road was demolished recently and the bank is now at La Croisette Mall - as are most of the banks now,

You can get a free shuttle bus to LC from the old bank (next to Ebrahim Car Rental) so no problem.

Also worth taking a look at the mall anyway.

No charges to exchange money here at the MCB, Thomas Cook or Shibani.

Rates are:

I just mentioned the ATM's at Pereybere because they are closer to you, but Shibani in Grand Baie is the best place to exchange money IME.

Sorry I don't think you can do that - you can only withdraw cash from an ATM I think?

Just carry sterling from the UK and change as you need to?

That's what we used to do before we opened bank accounts at the MCB in Mauritius.
