My Advice

Many travelers wrongly believe that healthcare in Mauritius is affordable and that they don’t need travel insurance. But in reality, the public healthcare system is fragile and even the most minor consultation in a private clinic can be very expensive!

That’s why it’s essential to get a travel insurance with good medical coverage before you go.

To travel safely, I recommend the following two insurances (both include epidemic coverage – like for Covid-19, which is very important!)

Sign-up is very simple, just click on the orange links below:
