🇲🇺 Monzo in Mauritius


(Charlie) #1

I am planning a trip to Mauritius, and I was wondering whether my Mondo card would work there. Although travel websites say that MasterCard ATMs are widespread, I cannot find it listed on the MasterCard exchange rate list here. Is Mondo the best way of getting cash, or should I bring GBP/USD and change it there?

I don’t have experience in Mauritius but I would also take some cash as backup. Generally the Mondo card has been very reliable abroad although some countries are better than others obviously. I currently using mine abroad and getting a much better exchange rate than anywhere else.

Hey @xsanda, it should work if there are MasterCard ATMs there but no guarantees – I’m not sure if anyone on the forum here has been to Mauritius yet… :slight_smile:

Just came back from Mauritius, used the card in both ATMs and in hotels. No problems at all.

Will the card work OK in Mauritius.

I’ve moved your post here, judging by the feedback from other users, it looks promising :tada:

I was unsuccessful at both withdrawing cash at a MasterCard ATM and paying in the Spar with my Monzo in Mauritius.

we were there last month, used it for payments in a hotel and some shops, worked with no problems.
