Mauritius Currency Guide


Mauritius uses the Mauritian Rupee.


ATM facilities can be found throughout Mauritius particularly in the main towns where they are located outside banks, and in supermarkets, shopping centres and the airport. If you plan on withdrawing money or using your credit card while travelling, don’t forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes.


Before you travel it is important to convert some of your Australian Dollars into Mauritian Rupees to have with you when you arrive. Mauritian Rupees are available to pre-purchase from Travel Money Oz before you fly.

Credit Cards

For large purchases, it’s a good idea to bring a credit card with you on your holiday to Mauritius instead of carrying a lot of cash. If you don’t have a credit card, consider a debit credit card that allows you to access your savings account and the local currency from ATMs and wherever credit cards are accepted.
