Why Order Travel Money With TUI?
Getting the most from your Mauritian rupees on holiday
If you’re thinking of going to Mauritius, you’ll need some spending money for your trip. The official currency used there is the Mauritian rupee, and it’s not used anywhere else.
The exchange rate between the Mauritian rupee and the pound changes daily, but at the time of writing it’s around MUR 45.27 to the pound.
Where to buy Mauritian rupees
You can get Mauritian rupees very easily at your nearest TUI Store, or order them online. However you get your rupees, though, do try to get your money sorted early to secure a good rate.
A guide to using Mauritian rupees
Mauritius is an island nation with plenty of ATMs, and major credit cards are widely accepted, but you’ll probably need cash for the small islands. Expect to spend around £25-50 per person per day, depending on your trips or activities. Try using our clever TUI calculator to fine-tune your budget.
Tipping is not the rule in Mauritius, though it’s appreciated, and in some resorts you can put money in a shared pot for the staff. Some posher restaurants may add a 10 to 15% service charge.
