1 - Invite your loved ones.
Recent research has shown that one of the most important things that influences holiday enjoyment
is who you travel with. While no tour operator, however good they are should ever influence who you
travel with, a great tour operator can help you create the perfect romantic holiday if youíre a couple
or the ideal family holiday; no matter whether youíre travelling with two, three or more generations in tow.
In order to get the max from your holiday, itís essential to tell your travel consultant whoís in your group
and what their likes and dislikes are so you can make sure they help you choose the perfect resort.

2 - Research the very best location.
Mauritius is a veritable melting pot of variety and choosing the very best location to suit your party and
your needs and desires takes time and experience. Itís worth investing time in this task though, because there
are lots of hidden gems that you might miss out on if you donít get top quality advice for your unique

3 - Get yourself a great price.
Price is a factor for pretty much every traveller, but comparing prices isnít always as easy as youíd imagine.
What you need to do is make your Ďwish listí and then shop around for the best possible deal for your precise
needs. Thanks to the growth in popularity of internet shopping and booking, many travellers are tempted to book
online with a faceless agent that they havenít even spoken to just to save a few pounds here or there. However,
when it comes to holidaying in the likes of Mauritius, the value added by an agent who really takes an interest
in your holiday is significant and shouldnít be overlooked. At Mauritius Holidays Direct, we give you the reassurance
you need thanks to our Best Price Guarantee. What this means is that you can benefit from someone who takes the time to
really listen to your needs, goes the extra mile to make sure you have a great holiday and offers you a great price.

4 - Choose a tour operator you can really trust.
Unless youíre a seasoned Mauritius traveller (and even if you are), the value added by choosing a tour operator who really knows the island
and who offers the personalized service in taking care of you, when you are in the resort is enormous. When you choose a tour operator, not
only do you need to know that theyíll pull out all the stops if you have a problem while you are away, but you also need to know that they
really understand what youíre expecting from your holiday investment.

5 - Decide if one location or two would work best for you.
Two centre holidays are becoming really popular with people who are choosing to travel to Mauritius. One of the most commonly selected twin resorts
with travellers from the UK is Dubai. Stopping off in Dubai either on your way to or on your way back from Mauritius isnít only a great way of making
your holiday even more special; it makes the whole long haul travel notion seem like a walk in the park. So donít forget to discuss the option of
turning one holiday into two with your travel consultant.

6 - Spend time selecting the best accommodation.
On Mauritius, accommodation options range from 5-star luxury to more basic, but very comfortable and deciding which is the best for you isnít
always as simple as it might seem. If youíre seeking a truly local experience, it may be that something more basic would tick your boxes.
Alternatively, if you want an all-inclusive, top of the range hotel experience, one of the bigger brands would probably suit you best. Or,
it may be that you want to sniff out a hidden gem thatís off the beaten track? Either way, on Mauritius, everything is possible and once
again the secret to getting the most of this element of your holiday relies on having an astute and knowledgeable travel consultant on
side and telling them your accommodation likes and dislikes.

7 - Make sure your in resort ducks are in a row.
Being confident that your tour operator will provide you with top-notch service from beginning to end is an essential part of making the
most of your Mauritius experience. Youíll more than likely be able to tell very early on if your travel consultant really cares, but things
like making sure you have your travel documents well ahead of time and that thereís plenty of in-resort support should you need it is an absolute
minimum. . At Mauritius Holidays Direct we post and email your travel documents and make sure you have your transfers waiting for you at the airport
when you arrive. Before you start your travel from the airport to your resort, youíll be able to enjoy a cold drink and a refreshing wipe down with a
moist towel to get you ready for your transfer. Our clients tell us that we really have thought of everything.

8 - Plan your time away carefully.
When youíre investing in travel to the likes of Mauritius, itís important that you make the most of every moment of your holiday.
It may be that you dream of just chilling out all the time, but perhaps an important part of that chilling out process will be a
massage or two or a catamaran trip or a round of golf or romantic meal for two. Either way, a great travel consultant will be
able to point you in the right direction so you make the most of every moment of your time on this beautiful island, no matter
how much or how little you choose to do.
• • •
9 - Take advantage of local knowledge.
Few people know Mauritius better than the locals, which is why having in resort reps as well as drivers who are local and will
share every secret corner of the island with you is an essential part of any great Mauritius experience. Mauritians are extremely
proud of their island and are exceptionally keen to help you discover hidden gems, so donít be shy to ask for guidance and advice
from your rep, your driver or the people who run your accommodation.

10 - Enjoy yourself and make real memories.
This sounds really obvious, but making a conscious effort to enjoy yourself is required to really get the most from any holiday experience.
Real life is fast, busy and stressful and remembering to relax and enjoy yourself is easy in Mauritius; but itís important in the first few
days to remind yourself of how lucky you are!
