You can change directly to Mauritian rupees. When we came on holiday, we always just withdrew rupees from ATM’S, using our South African bank cards. There is one at the airport for when you land.

You won’t be allowed to change Rands to Dollars….. without proof of travel to US or country using Dollars

Best is change your rands to rupee at the airport you can take up to R150k cash if not mistaken

The ABSA ATM’s are extremely expensive. We swiped our cheque cards when paying in stores, or restaurants.

It’s more cost effective to draw money at the ATM.

You can bring up to a value of 500,000 MRU. otherwise you will have a declare it, you may look for the appropriate form to declare prior to landing so as to save times or declare at Customs on arrival.

Just draw from the ATM once you land at the airport.

We were there last week. We brought South African Rands with us and we exchanged them at the airport when we landed. There is no commission on cash exchanges. You can withdraw cash from ATM but there are bank charges
