The pick-up station for the Rental Car at Mauritius Airport

Although the airport of Mauritius with more than 20,000 aircraft movements per year can now be described as quite heavily frequented, it is nevertheless quite manageable. You can easily find the counter of your car rental company by going towards the exit of the terminal, crossing the feeder road and entering one of the two buildings on the opposite side where the car rental companies are located. From there it is only a few steps to the parking lot and your rental car, so that the handover is usually completed quite quickly. However, when you return your car, you will have to arrange a transfer time with your car rental company, as you are only allowed to hand over the car keys to one of the car rental company's employees and not, for example, to the car park attendant.
