How it works:
- Version 1: quoting a low initial price for a service (e.g. henna tattoo) but charging an inflated price later.
- Version 2: quoting you inflated prices for items with no price tags.
Places to beware:
- Pamplemousses: Grand Baie Bazaar
- Port Louis: Central Market
What to do:
- Find out a fair price by going different shops or check with your hotel/hostel/driver, then bargain hard.
- Else, check out fixed price shops – e.g. supermarkets, malls, Le Caudan Waterfront, etc.
