Mauritius overview

If you’re looking for luxury at a surprisingly affordable rate, think no further than taking a cheap flight to the island paradise that is Mauritius. With its hypnotic blend of European, African, and Indian influences, Mauritius (and its beaches), are noteworthy, to say the least. It’s a destination bound to dazzle even the most discerned traveler, boasting some of this world’s most fascinating animals, breathtaking diving opportunities, and the promise of an island escape, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.

When is the best time to fly to Mauritius?

Peak season:

Since there’s no distinct peak or off tourism season in Mauritius, finding a cheap flight to the island destination can be difficult. Travelers keen on diving should try heading to Mauritius during the months of December and March, but if you’re keener on the idea of surfing, the months of June through August should be an ideal time to visit the island. If you’re on a tight budget, it might be wise to avoid flying to Mauritius over the Christmas and New Year’s period, since this is usually when flights are at their most expensive. Keep in mind that festivals such as Cavadi, which takes place in January or February annually, might play a determining role in the prices of flight tickets to Mauritius.

Off season:

Generally speaking, the months between June and August might offer you the best shot at securing affordable flights to and from Mauritius. Since the island nation doesn’t really have an off tourism season, you should book your flights as far along in advance as possible, regardless of which time of the year you plan on traveling.

When is the best time to book a flight to Mauritius?

Depending on what you’re aiming to see and experience in Mauritius, the ideal time to book a flight can vary. If you plan on doing game fishing, ensure that you book your flights to Mauritius during January or February so that you can be there for the high fishing season. When it comes to finding the best deals on flight tickets to Mauritius, flexibility is your best friend.

Which airlines operate flights to Mauritius?

Air Seychelles, British Airways, Kiwi Intl Airlines, Kenya Airways, and Lufthansa all provide flights to Mauritius, although the prices between each of these carriers don’t fluctuate much. It may be well worth comparing a couple of airlines with each other to try and determine which one provides you with the best value for your money. Airlines such as British Airways are renowned for their onboard comfort features, such as providing their passengers with in-flight snacks and drinks, which may be something that’ll add more value to the price of your flight tickets when compared with other carriers.

How to get from the airport to the city center?

Upon your arrival at the Port Louis International Airport in Mauritius, you’ll be able to easily get to the city center. You can choose to use the bus that runs from the airport into the city every 30 to 60 minutes, but if you have a lot of luggage, this option might not be ideal. Travelers can also choose to make use of the range of taxis parked outside of the arrival terminals at the airport, although this will cost more than using the bus service.
