Currency in Mauritius

Mauritius Currency

The currency in Mauritius is known as the Mauritian rupee (MUR) and it is not circulated anywhere outside of Mauritius so money can only be exchanged on the island. EURO/GBP or US$ travellers cheques and cash can be changed in the banks.

Major credit cards such as Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted in most restaurants and hotels and some shops around the island.
