Though Mauritius is not a very big place there are many options when it comes to hotels and lodges and no matter which one you choose you will be able to see any part of Mauritius from where ever you are based. Once again, planning your trip well in advance and thoroughly with much attention to detail, you will be able to put together a most enjoyable holiday.
Mauritius holiday packages designed by travel agents are often the best way to go. Agents get discounts on most services. The packages usually comprise the following:
These will be arranged on your behalf by a travel agent and the choice of airline will depend on seat availability on the dates you requested as well as price of course. Booking well in advance can save you money and practically guarantee your dates.
Of course you can select any type of accommodation you prefer and reservations will be made on your behalf. Before settling on anything in particular, take a look at what standardised Mauritius holiday packages are available and see if there is something that takes your fancy. Sometimes you will get a better rate by taking one of these already neatly bundled deals. The reason for this is simple. Travel agents usually get bulk discounts when they continually send customers to a particular hotel or lodge. While the agent is looking for the most attractive products with the best reputation you can usually do very well when booking one of their usual spots.
Mauritius is a small island and a great place to drive around. Hiring a car also saves you from moving from one hotel to another to enjoy different parts of the island. There is loads to see in Mauritius, so having the use of a vehicle is a great advantage though not a necessity and usually only included as an optional extra.
Car hire can be costly although as part of a packaged deal you may be able to get a much reduced rate by going through the agent or the hotel where you are booked in.
Mauritius has gorgeous weather so travel light and pack for good weather. There is plenty to buy and all that extra room in your suitcase will be well used on the way back and saves costs on extra baggage at the airport.
Most Mauritius holiday packages include breakfast and dinner and you will generally need to take care of yourself for lunch. Be sure to take some extra cash to accommodate for this and eating in the hotel can be costly while a jaunt in the local supermarkets can expose you to the local communities, an experience you are sure to never forget.
