Further information to help with your car rental from Mauritius Airport (Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport) 

After you’ve safely landed in Mauritius and collected your hire car from Green Motion Mauritius Airport, we know that you will be keen to get your car on the road and discover the enchanting beauty and energy of Mauritius.

If you are unfamiliar with driving in Mauritius, it is important to remember that you must drive on the left hand side of the road. We also recommend that you consider hiring a GPS (SatNav) to ensure that you arrive quickly and easily at your destination.

Enjoy your car hire in Mauritius

If this is your first time driving a car in Mauritius, we would advise that you stay calm and take your time. As already mentioned, remember to drive on the left and we’d also recommend for your own peace of mind that you consider hiring a GPS to ensure you can manoeuvre around the island with ease (ask at the rental counter for details).

In towns, the driving limit is 40 km/h, keep an eye out for the "Speed Zone – 40 km/h" signs which show the speed limitation. On highways the speed limit is 80 km/h and on the motorway it is 110 km/h.

Roundabouts in Mauritius are common on the motorway and they are easy to manoeuvre around but you must remember that drivers who arrive at the roundabout give way to those who are already driving in it. If you would like to stay on the motorway, you can stay in any lane however if you would like to leave the motorway, to turn left you should change to the left lane and if you wish to leave the roundabout at the third exit, make sure you are in the right lane.

Should you require any assistance while in Mauritius, the Mauritian emergency services can be contacted by calling 999.

​Can I check Green Motion’s car hire rates without placing a booking?

Yes, you can enter your booking requirements (location, dates, vehicle type etc.) on our website here and you will be automatically directed to our booking options and rates. However, please be advised that our rates may change.

​Can I select a specific car / van model?

No, Green Motion only guarantees the vehicle category however for an additional fee you can select the make and model by choosing our ‘Guarantee Make and Model’ option during the booking process. 

​Can I book additional extras or equipment?

Yes, you can book additional extras or equipment through our online booking process. You can reserve a child seat, baby seat, additional driver and GPS (SatNav). Some additional options can also be booked at the Green Motion Mauritius Airport rental branch. These additional options will be pay on arrival. 

​Can I reserve a vehicle and pay for it if I am not the person who will be picking it up and driving it?

There is no restriction on who can pay for the rental however on arrival at the renal station the credit card used for the deposit must be in the name of the main driver. The credit card used for the deposit will not be accepted if it is in the additional driver’s name. 

​Can I make amendments to my booking?

Yes, this is possible. If you booked through our website please contact our reservations team on however there is no guarantee that we will be able to amend your booking but we will try our best to help. 

​Do I need to leave a deposit when renting my car?

Yes, in all cases the main driver will be required to leave a deposit which will be taken by the method of pre-authorisation from the credit card presented. The level of pre-authorisation taken is dependent on the type of insurance purchased and the agreed excess. Typically the level of pre-authorisation required will mirror the level of agreed excess. In the cases where the hirer has selected a zero excess option, a small deposit / pre-authorisation will be required to cover any traffic violations including parking and speeding offences that may occur while the hire vehicle is in the custody of the hirer.

We would ask you to note that all pre-authorisation’s are released on the completion of the hire following a satisfactory review of the vehicle and its condition noting that any damaged caused to the vehicle while out on hire will be subject to cost with the relevant amount being removed from the pre-authorisation.

Typical deposits / pre-authorisations can range from £150 GBP to £1500 GBP dependent on the car type, age and driving experience of the driver and agreed excess.

​Which payment and debit cards does Green Motion accept?

In most cases, each Green Motion location will accept most major credit cards including Visa and MasterCard and in some cases, American Express may be accepted.

In relation to debit cards (Visa), these are typically accepted for the payment of rentals but unfortunately we cannot secure a deposit / pre-authorisation using a debit card and as such require a valid credit card for the pre-authorisation of the deposit. In addition we are unable to accept cash either for the payment of the rental or for the security deposit.

We would ask you to note that in the event that we are unable to guarantee funds relating to the security deposit on your credit card we will be unable to rent a vehicle to you.

How long do I wait for the release of a deposit / pre-authorisation?

Green Motion Mauritius Airport does not hold the pre-authorisation / deposit in our bank accounts. The pre-authorisation is a block of the agreed amount held against the credit card presented by the issuing bank. As soon as the vehicle has returned and we are happy with the condition of the vehicle, we action a release of the pre-authorisation.

The time taken by the issuing bank to release the pre-authorisation on the credit card varies immensely dependent on the bank and the country of issue. Typically, most pre-authorisations / deposits are released within 5 – 14 days from the return of the rental car.

In the event that you feel a pre-authorisation has not been released with the prescribed time frame it will be necessary for you to make direct contact with the issuing bank as Green Motion Mauritius Airport has no jurisdiction in this matter.

​Is roadside assistance included with my rental car?

In most cases, Green Motion Mauritius Airport offers full roadside assistance and recovery within the cost of renting a vehicle. Further information on roadside assistance is available at the counter prior to renting.

​What happens if my flight is delayed?

In the event that your flight is delayed, please endeavour to contact Green Motion Mauritius Airport. In most cases, we monitor inbound flight information and as such we will reserve your car until you arrive for up to 2 hours from the original pick up time. It is important that you make direct contact with the branch if you feel that your delay will exceed 2 hours to avoid us treating the rental as a “no show” and us reselling the rental car.

​What happens if I arrive at the rental office outside office hours?

Green Motion Mauritius Airport's opening hours are from 05:00 to 23:59. In the event that we receive no notification that your arrival has been delayed there is little we can do to facilitate your rental once the rental office is closed. In the event that we have received contact notifying us of your delay, you will be advised whether or not we can accommodate your late arrival and whether or not it will attract any out of hours or late fees.

Am I able to return my car before Green Motion Mauritius Airport opens?

You are not authorised to return your rental vehicle outside office hours unless prior agreement has been made noting that in the event that agreement has been authorised, it is subject to strict terms and conditions. Typically, return of the rental vehicle outside of rental hours is not authorised.

Discover Mauritius 

Green Motion Mauritius Airport

Mauritius will enchant you, uplift your soul and make you feel completely and totally relaxed. The island is a contrast of colours and tastes, perfectly set in its turquoise waters and white beaches. 

Wildlife tourism in Mauritius has gained popularity over the last few years and it is no wonder as Mauritius has saved more bird species from extinction than any other country, meaning you can see two of the most beautiful birds of the Indian Ocean – the pink pigeon and the Mauritian kestrel. 

If you are more of a beach-lover, then you will love Mauritian beaches and with over 160km-worth, you won’t have to travel very hard to find one. 

But if you are looking for something a bit more active, especially water related, you really can’t lose as Mauritius offers kitesurfing, paddling, diving, snorkelling, swimming with dolphins and boat excursions to the beautiful islands of the lagoon. On land, you can also decide between hiking, horse-riding or even golfing (yep, they have championship-standard golf courses).
