My brother and family (ages 40, 36, 8, 3) arrive in Mauritius on Monday May14 at 830am by Air Mauritius from Mumbai and leave on Sunday May20 at 635pm for Mumbai.
My brother wants to rent a car for the entire stay - from the airport itself. They are booked for the 7 days at Le Meridien Ile Maurice.
Can anybody suggest a preferred car rental agency at MRU airport - apart from the more expensive ones like Hertz and Avis. I assume the Indian driving license is acceptable? He also has a US license - does showing a US license (instead of an Indian license) help in any way? - maybe better rates (or higher?!!) ?
Also, with 2 kids age 8 and 3 - what would be the ideal car ? - may be a minivan type? Please advise ! - as sometimes the kids may go to sleep during a drive. So a 'larger' car may be preferable.
Finally - are automatic transmission cars commonly available? Manual is also ok, though.
