What are the benefits of motorcycle hire in Mauritius?

Hiring a motorcycle is one of the best ways to see a country, and is certainly far better than hiring a car in our humble opinion. This is because a motorcycle allows you to really get off the beaten track and explore those nooks and crannies that a car simply can't get too - quick stops, narrow roads and off road routes are generally much simpler on a motorcycle. Also, unlike in a sealed, heated and air conditioned car, a bike truly lets you feel the elements of a new country making for a far more immersive experience - for better or worse, we must sometimes admit!

Another huge benefit of hiring a motorcycle is the major cost savings that are on offer. Motorcycles are much cheaper to hire than cars, and have the added benefit of costing considerably less to run in terms of fuel as well, a benefit that you will really notice if you are planning on driving round the new country for a bit longer than average. Moreover, you are very likely to pay less for parking when stopping at your destinations in a motorcycle, as almost all vehicle parking stops offer reduced rates for motorcycles. Motorcycles also tend to avoid the worst of the new breed of congestion charges that are increasingly being implemented in cities across the world, as they are seen as more environmentally friendly by city planners. On that topic, there is no doubt that the smaller amount of fuel used by motorcycles (and fewer materials used in their manufacture) does mean that you are doing your part by hiring a motorcycle in Mauritius, vs hiring another type of vehicle.

What should I consider when it comes to motorcycle hire Mauritius?

There's a lot to consider when picking your motorcycle, and broadly this can be split into things to look at before you hire, and things to check when you come to actually collect the motorcycle. Firstly, before even looking at vehicles, you should think about and research the climate in the country you're visiting. This will inform what clothes you need to bring, as not all motorcycle rental firms will offer leather and helmet hire. It should also make you think about whether the time of year you are planning to visit is a safe and pleasant one in which to hire a motorcycle, as some seasons are simply not appropriate to all but the most experienced and well-equipped riders. Discretion is the better part of valour here.

Furthermore, we recommend that you research all you need to about the legislation and other requirements of the country you are visiting, if this is to be different to your country of origin. For example, what do you need to bring in terms of documentation, do you need to perhaps take out additional insurance to that offered by the hire firm (if any) and so on. This even extends to things like speed limits and road behaviour, as some countries may not have much emphasis on 'rules of the road', making life far more dangerous for bikers. They may also not properly display speed limits, but despite this may use speed cameras and so on, meaning you run the risk of racking up large fines. Finally, if you can write a list of everything you plan to pack it will pay dividends later on, as you can then ensure that the bike you hire will have adequate storage for luggage and so on. This is something that you can speak to the hire firm about if it is not an explicit option on the bike booking page.

When actually picking up the motorcycle from the hire office, make sure you take your time to inspect the vehicle and mark down any potential damage, as well as checking that all major features like the lights, the horn and so on all work properly. This is important both for your safety as the hirer, but also for the motorcycle hire company themselves, as they want to avoid any costly repairs or rescues later on.

After doing this, take a bit of time to get used to the controls and features of the bike. You definitely want to do this before you head out on the vehicle, as busy roads are not the place to learn how to control the vehicle. Don't sign any paperwork until you are truly happy, as any damage etc not noted down at this stage will have been assumed to have been done by yourself when you come to drop the vehicle off.

This is just a small selection of things to think about when hiring a motorcycle, and if you are not experienced in this process we absolutely recommend that you do plenty of research elsewhere. We hope you enjoy your time on a motorcycle in Mauritius, and wish you the best of luck when searching for a vehicle.
