Should I choose private or shared transfer?

Not sure which is the best option for you? Don’t worry – we’ve put together the key differences below so you can decide which to choose.

Shuttle bus

  • This is usually the most wallet-friendly choice. So, if you’re looking for a cheap airport transfer in Mauritius, this may be the best option for you.
  • You will share the vehicle with other passengers, and their flight may land after yours. This may mean there’s a short wait at the airport.
  • The driver will make various stops along the way to drop other travellers off. Your accommodation may not be the first stop on the journey.

Private vehicle

  • You and your friends/family will be the only people in the vehicle.
  • This means you won’t have to wait at the airport for other passengers to arrive. You will have a specific time to meet the driver of your Mauritius airport transfer and will set off straight away.
  • You will be taken directly to your accommodation or drop-off point with no other stops.

How much do airport transfers in Mauritius cost?

The cost of an airport transfer in Mauritius depends on a few things, such as the distance you are travelling and the type of vehicle you choose. To find out the price of each option, enter your travel details into the boxes at the top of the page and press ‘Search’. You’ll then be able to view our various transfers and how much they cost. The prices you see are live valuations and are subject to change in line with resort pricing and currency rates.

I’ve chosen my transfer – what happens next?

Here, you’ll find information on your luggage allowance, which is normally one suitcase and one carry-on item per traveller. If you are travelling with additional items such as a wheelchair or golf clubs, you’ll have the opportunity to add these here with the ‘Anything we can help with?’ section. Can’t see this option? Get in touch with us and we’ll help.

Do I get a confirmation?

Yes, you do! Once you have completed your booking online, we’ll send a confirmation email to you along with your e-ticket. Please keep this safe – it contains all the important details about your journey including the pick-up time, location and date. It’s worth checking this thoroughly before the departure date to make sure everything is correct.

We recommend printing off your e-ticket and keeping it in your hand luggage. This is because you’ll need to show it to your driver before you set off and it contains emergency phone numbers, should you need to speak to us.

Where do I go when I land in Mauritius?

To find out where to meet the driver of your airport transfer in Mauritius, check the ‘Find my pick-up’ section of your e-ticket. It will tell you where you need to go, which may vary depending on the type of transfer you’ve arranged.

Usually, travellers will meet their driver in the arrivals hall. They will be holding a sign either with the travel company’s name, your name or “hoppa”. If you can’t see this information on your e-ticket, please get in touch so we can help.

What should I do if I can’t find my driver?

Can’t see your driver? Don’t panic. Sometimes, our drivers can be a little late if there is heavy traffic. Just call us on the number on your e-ticket and we can give you an update.

What happens if I’m late?

Please don’t worry if you’re running behind schedule; we know that unexpected delays happen. Whether your plane landed late, or your suitcase is taking ages in baggage claim, give us a call on the number on your e-ticket and we’ll let your driver know.

Your driver will wait for up to 45 minutes after your scheduled pick-up time. If you’re later than 45 minutes, we’ll send an alternative driver out to pick you up.
