Money for 10 days?

Hello. We are travelling to Mauritius, this October, for 9 Nights. Staying at the Sands F & F, Half Board.

Will EUR 1,500 suffice for 10 days, including EUR 200 for the car rental? We will eat lunch & tea out everyday, do the usual tours, buy small souvenirs etc. We don't drink & are not big shoppers.

We don't travel extravagantly, but would be sad to skimp on a holiday.

Not keen on using the credit card too much & will be happy to change more EUR if required. In your opinion does EUR 1,500 work for everything, including car hire, for 10 days?

Thank you for your advice.

It is a how long is piece of string question. I go AI and have a rough budget of £100 per day which almost similar to 100 Euros at the moment.

However I always have a credit card with me for large spends as well as a debit card to take more money out of ATMs.

When we've hired cars we've had to produce our credit card for CDW in case of accident. The amount is reimbursed when you return the car unharmed.

1,500 EUR should be enough for a 9 night holiday but as mentioned the car hire company will want an indent of your credit card. CC is good back up for any hotel extras, ie. a la carte meals, spa treatments etc.

Hope you enjoy your holiday at The Sands, my latest review
