Do tourists need an international driver's licence to rent a car? Or is it that any country issued drivers licence is valid?

The law is that you need a international drivers licence, but sometimes they close their eyes. But if you have time to get one before you come to Mauritius , take it otherwise take the one you have and see 👀 😉 what happens.

My English license has been checked a few times by road side police and they have been happy with it.

We went to the post office on Friday as we wanted one just to be safe. Surprisingly they didn’t make an international drivers license for us because Mauritius is not in their list for it 😊

Normally you should have one. Maybe some police officers are lenient
