Top tips for hiring a car in India

  • Navigating in India can be complicated, especially when in-car GPS systems do not function well, as can happen in rural areas. It is advised to use a local SIM card to navigate with a phone-based maps system, and in fact, many car hire agencies such as SS Travels now offer the chance to rent a mobile phone along with the vehicle for a daily fee of around 1390 INR (20 USD).
  • Although the best type of vehicle for your trip will depend largely on where you wish to go, travelers who choose to rent a car in India often prefer a four-wheel drive. This provides flexibility and stability on just about any type of terrain, from busy city streets to bumpy mountain roads. Plenty of space in the car is also important for carrying essentials like spare tires, flashlights, water, and extra petrol.
  • While there are no laws about the use of car seats for children in India, it is strongly recommended that children under 12 years of age should be restrained in an age-appropriate baby or booster seat. Most agencies, such as Hertz, can provide child seats for an additional fee of approximately 150 INR (2.20 USD) per day, but these must always be booked at least 24h in advance.
  • Cross-border travel into neighboring countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh is generally not permitted to travelers who rent a car in India. One-way domestic rental is, however, a popular option thanks to the scale of the country; many agencies like Sixt and Avis allow this service for an additional fee of around 720 INR (10 USD) per rental.
