Travel safety has always been the number one priority for Taxi Service Mauritius. During the pandemic, we mobilized all our drivers to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Here’s what we do for this.

Take care of Yourself!

From a sanitary and epidemiological point of view, a taxi is a safer mode of transport than public transport, where a bigger amount of people are traveling at the same time. However, passengers should be wearing a mask in a taxi.

We're recognised by the World Travel Tourism Council

What we are doing during this pandemic



For customers’ safety in the Covid-19 pandemic, Taxi Service Mauritius vehicles have developed policies and technology options that allow and prioritize contactless transactions that limit or eliminate close contact

Cars Disinfection


All Taxi Service Mauritius taxi vehicles are disinfected after each ride. Apart from that, drivers are obliged to regularly wipe the door handles with antiseptics, carry out wet cleaning of the salon, and regularly ventilate the car.

Travel restrictions


Taxi Service Mauritius monitors the health of drivers and prevents employees with any symptoms of acute respiratory viral infections (fever, cough, runny nose) to work. We provide drivers with disposable masks, gloves, hand sanitizers, and other disinfectants.

Supporting healthcare workers


Taxi Service Mauritius is providing free transportation for frontline healthcare workers, helping them get to and from patients’ homes, as well as between healthcare facilities.

Feeding first responders during the lockdowns


We’re providing delivery of free meals on to first responders and healthcare workers in Mauritius, in coordination with health organizations and the local government.

Transport first responders


We’ve made 50% of our unused fleet available to the local health organizations for the transportation of healthcare workers from their homes to their place of work & back.

More information

Cleaning supplies for your car

We are working to provide drivers with disinfectants to help you keep your car clean. Supplies are very limited, but we’re partnering with manufacturers and distributors to source as much as possible. We’ll be prioritizing distribution to drivers in cities with the greatest need.

Supporting public health authorities

We have a team available 24/7 to support public health authorities in their response to the pandemic. Working with them, we may temporarily suspend the accounts of drivers confirmed to have contracted or been exposed to COVID‑19. We’re also consulting with an epidemiologist to make sure our efforts as a company are grounded in medical advice.

Support if you’re taken off the road

Any driver who is diagnosed with COVID‑19 or is individually asked to self‑isolate by a public health authority will receive financial assistance for up to 14 days while their account is on hold.

When taking rides

  • Always wear your mask.
  • Wash your hands: Before and after you ride.
  • Keep a sanitizer with you or use the one available on our taxis.
  • Cover your mouth and nose: If you sneeze or cough, do so into your elbow or a tissue.
  • Sit in the back: Give your driver space by sitting in the back seat.
  • If possible, load your luggage in the vehicle yourself. Your driver will provide assistance only if necessary.
  • Open the window: If possible, roll down the window to improve ventilation.

Pay Online

Use our easy online payment processor for your trips. The payment link will be found on your booking confirmation email.

Stay at home, if possible

The most important thing you can do right now is to stay home if possible.

This is especially critical if you’re feeling sick. This will help limit the spread of the virus and flatten the curve. Let’s help keep drivers safe and ensure that rides are available for those who need them.


We’re reminding everyone who uses Taxi Service Mauritius to follow advice from public health authorities. If you’re sick, stay home and away from others. Wash your hands frequently, and cover your cough or sneeze. For more information, visit the World Health Organization website.
