Currency of Mauritius - Money, banks, exchanges

The local currency is the rupee Mauritian (Rs). It is divided into centimes (“under”), with coins of small change. The first banknotes in rupee appeared in 1876 and the coins of currency in 1877. The Bank of Maurice emits parts of 5, 10, 20, 25, 50 pennies, of 1, 5, 10 and 20 rupees, tickets of 25, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 and 2000 rupees.

Rate of exchange

At the beginning of 2013, 1 € was exchanged against approximately 39 Rs.

Banks and exchange offices

No problem to change euros on the spot: banks and exchange offices are in all the important cities. They make the exchange of the tickets as accounts - travellers' cheques (travellers). The rupee Mauritian is exchanged only in Maurice. Exchange offices are opened with the airport at the hours of arrivals of the planes. It is also possible to change in all the banking houses and the exchange offices. (Attention only the tickets in foreign currencies can be changed).

The private changers propose, in general, a better rate than the banks. Check the receipt all the same and recount the given money. You can in any event use the euro to pay in the majority of the trade, simply your rate of exchange is calculated with the ladle and very often, definitely higher than the tariff policy practised by the professionals of the exchange of Mauritius.

Charts of payment

The majority of the bank cards are accepted in Maurice and one finds many automatic teller machines. The charts of payment are accepted in the majority of the hotels, restaurants (except the bouis-bouis), service station and shops. The use of your chart of payment is possible in any place, simply are wary, like everywhere else in the world, of the regular flows small money sums which very quickly will lead you to expenses of transaction very often prohibitory.

In Rodrigues

The banks are in Port Mathurin and the airport. They open Monday at Thursday of 9h with 15h, Friday until 16h and close the weekend. All have slot-machines for international charts. Only the large hotels and some restaurants accept this means of payment.
