Mauritius Car Rental Mini Guide

We have various locations across the country where you can collect your hire car, however the main pick up point for vehicles in Mauritius is the Plaisance international airport. Booking your car hire in advance online with Rhino means that when you land at the airport you can collect your hire car straightaway and get on the road, with no annoying queues or filling in lengthy forms at the rental desk!

Mauritius is a small island situated to the east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. It is a stunning tropical island and the best time of year to visit is between May to November when cooling trade winds make the temperature delightful.  Mauritius is located off the coast of Africa and is a destination for luxury holidays given the intense beauty of the country. Its main cities are the capital Port Louis, Beau Bassin, Rose Hill, Quatre Bornes, Phoenix, Vacoas and Curepipe.
