At the airport in Mauritius

Certainly not in UK, it’s simple to exchange cash at the airport and a so much better rate 🤗

Best to change on arrival at airport for a good rate

Patrick Louise answered 2 months ago

Well would say better rate at Mauritius airport Was 57 rupes to £ last week so you will have to check at Gatwick or where you are flying from

At airport in mauritius, but exchange a little here, you never know, for whatever reason, the exchange bureau may be closed (unlikely) but at least you won’t be stuck. Currently UK Post office is 54mru/£1, Airport is 58mru/£1……difference is 4mru = 70p so in the scale of things not much difference

I’ve been drawing direct from MCB Cashmachines and getting from 58.1 to 58.9rs per £. Airport was less. You can draw max 10000rs per transaction, but you can do it twice

John Lewis rate is 54.38 Mauritian Rupee to the £1 and if you buy £500 worth it is delivered free within 24/48 hours and delivered by Royal Mail.

I would say in Mauritius as the rate of exchange is better there.
A lot of the towns also have a Bureau de Change offering good rates.
