The Public transport Bus & Taxi

In Mauritius,there is no monopoly in the transport system.Bus, however remains very practical and is the cheapest mode of conveyance for  small trips, though you can travel round the island by bus. There are many buses plying on the road  and the price is unbeatable as it is subsidized by the government.

In the Mauritian bus you have the driver and the conductor to whom you pay your fare and it is he that hands over to you your bus ticket for your ride. Within less than one euro you may travel 15 km. It is not expensive !!!!!!!!! unless you prefer to walk or go trekking..

The bus stop as well as the taxi stand are 80 metres from the residence. The buses have to pass via Mon Choisy and Trou aux Biches before  heading to Pamplemousses and towards  Port Louis,the capital city which is 18 km from here ( 25 minutes journey by bus ).In the other direction , it is the north of the island towards Pointe aux Canonniers, Grand Baie, Pereybère and the far pavilion - Cap Malheureux.

Car rental with or without chauffeur driven

You also have the possibility of renting a car at the airport or at Trou aux biches and Mon Choisy. Compare the prices- as the price is not fixed.

Driving is generally on the left and if you wish to make the most out of your holidays you are advised to go for a chauffeur driven car to avoid the botheration of driving, looking for places and on top of all to avoid speed and parking fines. This will leave you with ample time to yourself, to admire the country side and  to use the driver as your guide while visiting picturesque sites and  he also keeps an eye on your personal belongings from onlookers.

In short, it is a  taxi  car with a chauffeur who will drive you around  if you wish to go everywhere. The price is just few hundred rupees more as compared to a rental car. But with a rental car you are more independent as you are free to move at your pace.

 You may contact my brother Ashok  JHEELAN if you wish to avail yourself of interesting prices on car rental with or without a driver.

In the morning before your departure for the day, my brother prepares your day itinerary with your consultation so as to make the best use of your money spent on taxi services.

Hoping to have your trust in us and to have you amongst us.
