Mauritius Travel Guide

Getting Around

Public Transport
Public transport is provided by a number of bus companies that operate throughout the island. Express bus services run from Port Louis to the north, south and to the main towns. In the urban regions, timetables run between 5.30am to 8. 00pm. In rural areas, buses tend to run between 6.30am and 6.30pm.


Taxis
You can easily hop in a taxi for some independent travel. All taxis have a yellow square box indicating their route on both sides of their car doors and a taxi sign on top. Taxis are available at the airport and at hotels. They can also be found at bus stations.


Car / Bicycle / Scooter Rental
Several companies and local tour operators offer car, bicycle and scooter rental services at reasonable prices. It is important to note that Mauritians drive on the left-hand side of the road.

You can easily traverse the different parts of the island in a car or on a scooter.


Helicopter Services
If you want to enjoy an aerial view of the island, why not opt for the helicopter services that are offered by Air Mauritius and the Police Force of Mauritius?
