Mauritius is a fairly expensive destination for UK travellers, and you should budget around £150 a day per person for a comfortable stay. Our statistics show that the average Between August 1st and October 31st 2013 the average Brit took between £750 (Rs31,957.43). This is up from typically £550 to £600 three years ago. It is also worth considering a prepaid currency card as an alternative method of payment as ATM machines are common at banks, supermarkets and shopping centres. Do not use a UK credit or debit card as hefty charges are usually added to most transactions.
Avoid exchanging Rupees in hotels if you can as they tend to offer the worst exchange rates. If you need more currency when you are out in Mauritius and you do not have a prepaid currency card, banks are usually the best option as they are safe and offer fairly competitive rates.
