Voice of Travelers to Mauritius

Amazing holiday in Mauritius. I got a cheap ticket too. Wow!

I booked economy class tickets to Mauritius last month. I suppose to stay in Mauritius for a week but booked another ticket to change my return air ticket. My experience was fantastic and loved every minute of my stay in Mauritius. Mauritius is a very enjoyable place to explore. My tickets were cheap; therefore, I did not hesitate to change my return ticket. I will return to Mauritius next year and plan to book my ticket soon. You will not regret visiting Mauritius and must go! The people, food and attractions are awesome.

Best ticket to Mauritius with Emirates

I arrived in Mauritius from Dubai. My tickets to Mauritius were booked on Emirates Airlines. I never knew just how good Emirates were. The service was excellent and our flight to Mauritius arrived early. The tickets were reasonably priced and I was upgraded to first-class ticket once I arrived at the airport in Dubai. Furthermore, booking tickets with Emirates was so easy. I had the choice of selecting my seat when I booked the ticket online. I would really love to see my family and friends visit Mauritius with me on my next trip. I will book my tickets to Mauritius with Emirates again. Mauritius is such a beautiful country. If you love beaches, you must visit this amazing country!
