The best and most reliable way to visit Mauritius is by car, driving across scenic routes and enjoying the exquisite beauty of the island at your own pace. Mauritius is a relatively small island that is easy to navigate around. Planning on how to commute when you’re travelling to a new place is very important and the ease of being able to secure your mean of transport before your trip avoid any unnecessary stress during your stay. We have several car rental agencies in Mauritius among which is Pingouin Car Rental offering cheap but good quality car hire services that cater for every budget and preferences. You can use your national driving license if you’re staying in Mauritius for less than a month.
Pingouin Car Rental was established by Mr. Sayyad Ramjan who started his business with only three cars back then. Gradually the business gained fame with the exceptional customer service that it provides, and it soon became a favorite brand for tourists. Presently, Pingouin Car Rental consists of an amazing team of ten staffs and a fleet of over 100 vehicles.
The agency through its well-designed website allows you to pre-book your rental car hassle free which will be ready for pick-up upon your arrival at the airport (SSR International Airport, Level 0 – Car Rental Booth, counter no.9). If you prefer to get your car delivered at any other place or directly to your hotel, this can be arranged by Pingouin Car Rental. For all pick-ups at the airport, no additional fee will be charged however if you request delivery of the car at your residence, it will be chargeable unless you hire a car for more than six days.

Punctuality is a key factor for Pingouin Car Rental and they strive to be as efficient and rapid to solve any complaints or breakdown that you may encounter.
Rental varies for each vehicle. Expect to pay around 25 euros for mini and economy cars, around 35 euros for a medium sized car while luxury cars will cost you around 90 euros per day.
The minimum rental period is for 3 days.

Feedback from customers
First visit to Mauritius, and hence first review for Pingouin Car Rental Mauritius. Very easy collection and return process at the Mauritius Airport. Car in good condition and all went very smoothly. Would be very happy to use again and recommend.
We have been using this car rental service in Mauritius for many years and they have never failed to provide superb service. We would highly recommend this company to all visitors and they do not have hidden charges like other car hire companies in Mauritius.
Excellent car hire service from Pingouin Car Rental
The car rental service we had from the people at Pingouin Car Rental was excellent! Good staff, very helpful and a good price for the vehicle as well! We had a problem with our first car which was dealt with very quickly and efficiently on the same day (Sunday) with a replacement vehicle. Pingouin Car Rental then refunded the cost of any extra fuel we put into the car. There was some difference in the security deposit we thought we were paying at the airport, but the company only reserved the money and made no deductions from our account. We would use Pingouin again and recommend this company.
