We recently rented a car with OLA Mauritius and we couldn't be happier!
They offer a great service and value for money. Collection and delivery of the car were perfect: they were right on time and everything went quickly. The car was in good conditions and we didn't have any problems with it.
We totally recommend it!

great service. Car was delivered at our hotel and we dropped it at the airport. We had damage which was solved at a very reasonable price.

Did not get a booking confirmtion at all, after 3 dayss of asking i got som snapshot of their smartphone sreen send to me.
At arrival in Mauritius, nobody from this Company was around. Some other carrental company employee helped my y calling them. They don't have an office on the airport. At arrival.
Then they arrived after some time lieing that they where around(i have been looking with some very helpfull taxidrivers in the arrivalhall), then i had to sign for a 500euro own risk policy. Fully insured they advertise on their website(so another lie). No explaination of the car at all.
All allready noticeable damages had to be drawn on the rental policy and signed by both.
And the gastank was as good as empty, really hard to find a gasstation at youre first arrival on Mauritius. The car it self was really fine.
After 3 weeks giving back the car i had to find the Ola people again, beeing a little early they where not there, and i needed to check in my stuff first and than find Ola people. They where outside helping others. Not really recognisable, i by coincidence asked them and they where the correct people. We had to drive to the car where i parked it to see if everything was oke and it luckely was.
There was no navigation at all. I had downloaded offline navigation to mu my smartphone before i left to Mauritius. Take a charging cable and usb 12v adaptor with you.
Better get an better price from one of the compagnies with an office on the airport.

Just returned from Maurius and was very happy with service and car from this company. They met us at airport promptly for both pick up and drop off. Car was in good condition no issues at all. Only thing I found cheeky was the fact that they advertise free GPS but we had to pay for ours as didn't book direct. Next time will go direct!!! Will use them next time I go😊

Pritish delivered us the car at the airport.
He was on time and waiting for us. He was nice and fluent in his job.
Explain us very well about the car and leave a GPS to guide us through the roads of Mauritius.
Pritish was very helpful and discreet!
Reservation with OLA was very good. Everything was ok.
Next time surely with Ola !
Review by Lyaqat Valdecasas2 years ago
My experience with OLA Mauritius contains two stories: 2014 and 2016 with some controversy between them. So you can read both stories carefully and make your own conclusions.
Had a great experience. OLA people were really friendly and on time to deliver and collect the car. The car itself was a fresh Nissan Micra in great condition. I Was really pleased with my experience and could recommend OLA to anyone.
The rates were still competitive compared to chains and I booked Nissan Micra again. But some other things deteriorated drastically. First of all, OLA has no office at the airport, which means you have to agree how you collect the car in advance. In my case the guy who delivered the car was 40 minutes late. I tried to find him by calling their office but the lady there could barely speak English and lied to me telling that the guy was already at the airport.
When he finally arrived, it turned that instead of Nissan Micra they brought me Perodua Myvi telling it's similar. How was the car? It had seen life. A lot of it. It was dirty as a hell on inside and falling apart on the outside. Driving it was a punishment so terribly bad and dull it was. Also it was, I guess, quite a dangerous experience (google for Perodua's reviews and safety records). My overall impression was that this car would be much cheaper to buy and then throw away than to rent.
Returning the car was a hassle again, similar to collecting. I could not find the agent where agreed and had to phone the office again. The agent had no badge or any other piece of OLA branding on them and looked like if he was hiding from someone. May be they are not allowed to operate at the airport – I don't know.
Also, when returning the car, I could see him giving another Perodua to another customer. So I would strongly doubt that better cars advertised on OLA's website even exist in 2016.
Conclusion? Never ever agree for Perodua. Act at your own risk as their service may be inconsistent from year to year or from customer to customer.

Website said full tank petrol and free GPS - both not there when car is collected. Only minimal fuel left and said no GPS required in Mauritius, well don't advertise it if so! Car not in good condition, on 2nd day, the car won't start and the 'service' sign came up on the dashboard. Waited 3 hours for someone to come to our hotel who teaches us how to start an auto car, need to turn the ignition key and step on accelerator simultaneously. More to come, at departure, no one showed up to collect the car. We have to call and they said someone is coming. After 1.5hr waiting,was told no one is actually coming and we're asked to leave the car key in the car. Too much car drama for a holiday. Not recommended at all.

I booked a car for 3 days with OLA before leaving the UK. The booking process was simple, Ameer who dropped the car to our hotel was on time (early in fact) and very polite. The car was clean, exactly as ordered, which in my experience often isn't the case with the bigger chain companies. It was very easy to drive & in good condition with new tyres and half a tank of petrol, which despite two days out we only managed to use less than £5 of. The car was collected again & our security deposit promptly returned. I would definitely use OLA again in Mauritius.
Review by Savagemikesavage Ebsary3 years ago
The car was clean and I had no hassles.
GPS needs to be updated,provided me with a baby car seat which was great.
Drop off was convenient I was met at the airport right outside the entrance which meant a short walk with the luggage.Car was delivered to my resort.
Rate per day was cheaper than what resort quoted me for the same vehicle.
Review by Hcapps3 years ago
There's no desk for Ola at the airport and they failed to advise us of this before hand. Meaning we went searching around the airport with no result. Turns out they meet you at the exit, only 15 minutes or so after the time you said you would arrive with no notice they would be late or apology. Forget these guys and go for anyone else.

Our car arrived on time, clean & tidy (a Honda Jazz as booked), the rep was helpful with tips on where to visit. A free sat nav included. The car was collected with no problems other than the fact my husband left his new glasses in the car when it was returned. We returned to UK very very early the next day so contacted Salim by email and he has had them shipped back to us - what great customer service!!

I had initially booked a car via another company but something went wrong and i found myself without a car 2 days before my arrival on the island.
I called OLA for help and spoke to Salim the Manager.
Despite the peak season and most of their cars already booked out, Salim managed to sort something out for us. My emails and calls were quickly responded to, even at 11pm
I found Salim and his team very friendly, efficient and flexible.
The car was exactly what i needed and requested; clean and delivered right on time at the location I requested.
Happy to recommend OLA following my very good experience.
Thanks again Salim & Team.

Ola car rental offers a great service, the team is really friendly and goes out of their way to ensure your experience is the best possible.
Salim was waiting for me at arrivals with a board and the car was ready to go from the arrivals parking in a few minutes. Salim helped me a lot and I am very grateful!
I definitely recommend Ola, the best prices and the best service on the island!

I chose OLA Mauritius, because of, well as naive as it may sound, their website was friendly. Their prices were fair in comparison to other companies and their use of PayPal was appreciated. I booked the car for the time my flight was due to land and Salim, their sales executive was waiting for me at SSR. I had a quick chat, turns out we both support the same football team which was another bonus. I inspected my car and drove away in a matter of minutes. Car was spotless and they provided half a tank of petrol. I dropped my car off 13 days later and all was well. I'm looking forward to booking my next rental with them.

Salim at OLA Rent a Car was fantastic. We got a great, fuel-efficient and clean car for an excellent rate. And the customer service was outstanding. Having our own transportation while in Mauritius was definitely a great decision. And OLA made it so easy and enjoyable. Thanks!

Easy and uncomplicated booking online for an ubeatable pricce.
The owner, Salim expected me at the airport and within 15 min I was on my way.
The car was in very good condition and they even offer a Navigation System for free.
Will certainly recommend Ola to my own customers.

I rented a car online for 1 week. Once I arrived in Mauritius, Salim was already there waiting for me. He is very professional, friendly and helpful at the same time.
The car was in perfect conditions and I had no problems.
Even when I had to return the car Salim was very punctual.
On top of that the price was very competitive.
I have no complaints and I definitely recommend OLA Mauritius Car Rental

Friendly service with good punctuality, the agent is right on time to pick us up and wait for us upon return the car. The car is in good condition as well to bring a lot of convenience for our first trip to Mauritus.

OLA offered a great service while I was in Mauritius. Even when my flight was cancelled it was no problem to extend my rental and return on very short notice. No hesitation in booking again!
