  • Which one is the best Rent a Car in India

    Are you keen to know which is the best Rent a Car service provider in India? Ask our technical experts to know the best deal for you.

    We sometimes have to use rent-a-car for self-drive (in case if our car is facing with technical issue and unable to go for a long drive with family or friends), as, we can't book city car or auto for a long distance except for some rent a car in India or use public bus (travel) or train etc. anyhow, my question is as below;

    Which one is the best Rent a Car in India? How much they charge per day? What are the conditions? Kindly explain.

  • There are several car rental services operating in India. Most of the services are region specific. A service useful in one area may not offer the same degree of service elsewhere. From that point of view, I would list out the services as below -

It is generally the rule that you have to pay for daily rental for an air conditioned car with chauffeur, including the fuel and the associated taxes. Usually it is a combination for 8 hours and 80 kilometres. If time or mileage crosses this frame then you go paying for per kilometer charge being added to the daily rate.

    6. India Car Rental

    The Base Fare is Rs.2250 for 250km per 24 hrs. Additional Km fare is Rs. 8 per km.

  • Car rental services vary in their service offering from one place to another. Also some are region specific like Mumbai and Delhi based services may not be available in other regions.
