Here are a few more tips to help you find cheap airfare to Mauritius:
- Consider flights into Antananarivo, Madagascar. To get from Antananarivo to Mauritius you can grab a spot on a short hopper flight. Look for cheap flights on no frills airlines.
- Look for flights that go through Nairobi, Kenya; Cape Town, South Africa; Lagos, Nigeria or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.
- Consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. Air Mauritius is the national airline. However, South African Airways, Austrian Airlines and other airlines also stop in Mauritius.
- Airfare to Mauritius will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates. The most expensive air tickets to Mauritius are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.
