You may think that touching down in dodoland and getting around in your car rental Mauritius makes life easy, but with the holiday season around the corner it can get chaotic.

In general, many people love to spend their vacations in peace without the hustle and bustle of tourists. If you are one of them and feel stuck in Mauritius by any chance, then planning a getaway to Reunion Island can be just what you need.
Set in the Indian Ocean to the East of Madagascar lies the tiny unusual paradise of Reunion. Although it houses ample monuments and natural wonders to be trending vacation destination, but it’s only known well to the French.
