Driving Tips

Driving Tips

One major motorway crosses the island from North to South while a reasonably well-maintained network of surfaced roads covers the island. Many of these are narrow so be aware of pedestrians and animals on the road. Unlike in many countries, road users on the island have a tendency to drive very slowly. Unfortunately, this also happens on the motorway.

More tips for enjoying driving in Mauritius:

  • Drive on the left in Mauritius and remember that distances and speed limits are measured in kilometres.
  • Give way to the right unless otherwise indicated.
  • A cash surcharge of MUR20 is made for hire cars when you leave the airport.
  • We recommend that all children under 14 are securely fastened in appropriate baby or booster seats.
  • Parking is free and easily available on the island except for the cities of Port Louis, Curepipe and Quatre Bornes where you buy parking tickets at the nearest petrol station.
  • Any damage caused to rental vehicles by driving off paved surfaces is your responsibility and you will be charged for repairs.

Speed limits in Mauritius

  • Residential areas: 40 km/h
  • National roads: 80 km/h
  • Motorway: 110 km/h

Traffic Infractions and on-the-spot fines:

Drink driving is taken extremely seriously by the Mauritius police and even a first offence can result in imprisonment. On-the-spot fines can be issued such as:

  • Speeding: MUR500

  • Failing to wear a seatbelt: MUR500
  • Using a mobile phone: MUR2000
