KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Port Louis

  • Opting for a car rental in Port Louis offers remarkable advantages over public transportation. With a rental car, you gain the freedom to explore the city's diverse attractions at your pace, avoiding the constraints of schedules and crowded buses. You can effortlessly journey to iconic sites like the Caudan Waterfront, Champs de Mars Racecourse, and Aapravasi Ghat, while also having the flexibility to venture beyond the city to discover hidden gems like Pamplemousses Botanical Garden and Le Morne Brabant. Embracing a car rental in Port Louis enhances your travel experience, enabling you to uncover Mauritius' vibrant culture and captivating landscapes conveniently.
  • The nearest airport to Port Louis is Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport (MRU). Car rental services are conveniently situated within the airport terminal, eliminating the need for a shuttle. Upon arrival, you'll find a variety of car hire companies offering a range of vehicle options to suit your needs. This seamless setup ensures swift access to your chosen rental car, making Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport a convenient starting point for your exploration of Port Louis and the beautiful island of Mauritius.
  • Port Louis car hire provides an enriching experience. Driving is on the left side of the road, a legacy of British influence. Locals often drive compact cars and SUVs, suited for the city's bustling streets and nearby scenic routes. Driving in Mauritius is generally relaxed, though it's important to be attentive due to the mix of traffic. Cyclists are common, especially in urban areas, so vigilance is necessary. Embracing car rental in Port Louis grants you the freedom to immerse yourself in the local way of life, and explore vibrant markets, historic sites, and picturesque coastal roads with ease.
  • Car rental in Port Louis has drawbacks. During peak tourist season from October to April, roads like M2 and M1A can get congested, causing delays. Rush hour traffic typically occurs between 07:00 - 09:00 and 16:00 - 18:00, impacting routes around the city centre and key business areas. Navigating the bustling city streets can be challenging due to narrow roads and aggressive driving styles. Limited parking in popular areas like the Caudan Waterfront can pose difficulties. While a rental car offers freedom, planning routes and timings helps avoid traffic-related stress.
