Traveling Around India

  • Just as reaching India travelers can get around the country through various aerial, terrestrial and water routes.

    Air transport: Major domestic airlines available are Indian Airlines, Jet Airways, Kingfisher Airlines and many others, which provide services ranging from luxury to economy class. In some airlines discount up to 90% is available for children below 2 years of age, and up to 50% for children aged between 2 to 12 years. All the information about the discounts can be obtained from the India Tourism.

    Special services: 7-days, 15-days and 21-days tickets are available in all Indian Airlines services, which offer unlimited economy class travel, but not more than one visit can be made to the same destination.

    Rail Transport: Indian railway is a state run organization, through which one can travel across the country.
    Telephone no.: 011-23405156
    Website: www.Indianrail.gov.in

    There are six types of tickets available, which are first, second and third class air-conditioned, first- and second-class sleeper, and air-conditioned chair.
    Some major trains have restaurant cars too.

    Special trains: * The Palace on wheels-It is a luxury train, which takes you to an excursion through the royal state of Rajashthan.
    * The Golden Chariot: It takes you through Karnatka and also has a stop at Goa.
    * The Deccan Odyssey: It takes you through Mumbai, with a stop at Goa.
    * The Fairy Queen: It is one of the oldest steam engine trains, which takes you from Delhi to Alwar, and back to Delhi.
    * The Darjeeling Himalayan Railways: It takes you from new Jalpaiguri to Darjeeling.

    There are many other trains like Rajdhani Express, which is a deluxe super fast train, Shatabdi Express, Konkan express and many other Trains, which take you to the length and breadth of the country, details of which can be obtained from the website of Indian railways.

    Water transport: some ports have ferries running to and fro, like from Kolkata and Chennai to Port Blair in Andaman Islands, and from Kochi and Calicut to Lakwadeep Islands. These services are usually aborted in monsoon. Information about the these cruises can be obtained from the following websites:
    www.shipindia.com
    http://lakport.nic.in
    There are also some luxury water excursions in Kerela Backwaters, and seasonal catamaran from Mumbai to Goa.

    Road transport: Following modes can be used for road transport across the country:

  • Bus: buses are available for both inter state and intra state commutation. Buses are available from deluxe to economy types, and are especially useful for traveling to places where there are no access through trains, like hill stations and mountains.
  • Cabs: taxis can be hired from many taxi stands to travel within and also outside the states. Make sure you hire from the authorized taxi stands and agents.
  • Hired cars: If one wants to drive o the Indian roads by themselves then they can hire cars from many dealers. Though driving in India is not recommended to travelers because of heavy traffic. However Driving in Goa is not that problematic due to less density of vehicles on the road.
  • Own cars: If one wants to travel in India on one’s own car then required documents should be obtained from the Indian embassy of one’s country. One should also get an international driving permit.

Travelers are advised to avoid going to hill stations and remote villages in the monsoon season, as there are sometimes landslides on mountains, which may cut off the place from other places for some time, and there are lots of muddy roads in villages, which may be difficult to travel on in the monsoon season.

One can usually take buses, taxis or Rickshaw to travel within towns and cities.
