International Private Medical And Travel Insurance For Mauritius

Take out comprehensive international private medical and travel insurance before you travel to Mauritius, to cover the cost of any emergency medical treatment abroad or emergency repatriation and evacuation. 

Good private healthcare is available in Mauritius, but can be costly if you do not have medical insurance. More complex medical cases may require evacuation to South Africa.  Travellers need to make sure they have adequate medical travel health insurance PLUS accessible funds to cover the cost of any additional medical treatment and repatriation costs.

If you need emergency medical assistance during your trip, dial 999 or 114 and ask for an ambulance. Both private and state ambulance services are available, but are of varied quality and speed. You should contact your insurance/medical assistance company promptly if you are referred to a medical facility for treatment.
