Transfer in Mauritius
Mauritius is an island country in the Indian Ocean, the home of the famous dodo bird which went extinct in the 17th century. Besides, in Mauritius, one can find giant turtles. There was a large number of them near the resort of Balaclava before, but now this animal is under protection, and there is only Turtle Bay left in the city in memory of their glorious past. The main sight in Mauritius is multicolored dunes of Chamarel. The sand is naturally divided into sectors of all the colors of the rainbow and keeps these borders even if it is stirred on purpose.
Mauritius has an area of just 2000 square meters, however, taxis here are very expensive, especially ones traveling over short distances. It is more cost-efficient to rent a car for a day. In this case, you can make stops in different places, while the driver will be waiting for you. Also, he/she may give you a city tour. The most important thing is to negotiate the price and the route at once. A vehicle can be ordered by phone; booking via the Internet is impossible since there are no special apps. Taxis in Mauritius are mainly private, so different drivers may offer you radically different prices. At night, tariffs increase by 40%. If you are going to the airport, you will have to pay 10% of the trip cost extra for baggage and make a payment for coming close to the terminal. Note that taxi drivers may get you to various shops and cafes on the way, as they earn additional money doing this. If you don’t want to make additional stops, tell the driver about this before the trip. Each taxi has a yellow lamp on its roof and a yellow square indicating the district this car belongs to on its door. The driver can take passengers only in his/her region. Another travel option you may choose in Mauritius is local buses, but note that this is the least comfortable one.
If you don’t like bargaining, don’t speak foreign languages, and appreciate comfort, it is better to book a Kiwitaxi private transfer. If you want, you do not have to talk to the driver at all. All the information about your trip is specified in your request which needs to be made on our website at least 48 hours before the journey. Thus, you specify your pick-up and drop-off addresses as well as the necessary car class and then make a prepayment. Transfer prices are fixed and don’t change after the booking is made. Also, you can make a full payment for your trip at once. All stops on the way are made only on your request and are not charged extra. You can book a transfer in Mauritius to any location on the island, but if you are heading to the airport, calculate the pick-up time correctly. To do that, add about 3 hours (for force majeure circumstances) to the transfer time specified on the Kiwitaxi website.
