Dubai or Mauritius?

Hi

Should we buy our duty free (wine etc.) in Dubai airport or wait until we arrive in Mauritius?

Also should we hire a car when we arrive or book from the U.K?

Many thanks

Jasmine

Hi Jasmine,

I think maybe Dubai duty free wines are a little more expensive than in Mauritius duty free.

I last priced Dubai last September though when considering buying for Japan, and not bought wine from Mauritius duty free for a while but last time I bought it was cheaper.

I think sterling is doing well against the MUR which makes a difference too.

Car hire we used to pre book, but if you are only going to hire for a few days here and there then you could sort it when you get there.

Hi Bronia

Thankyou for your reply. I will wait until we get to Mauritius to buy some wine. We will only need a car for 2or3 days, i have made a note of 2 companies who have been recommended, so we will sort it out when we arrive

Once again many thanks for your help.

Jasmine
