Hire car with Driver

I am looking to arrange a tour in Kerala end of Sept / early Oct 2012 for up to two weeks starting in Kochi. I was originally thinking of doing a circuit back to Kochi but other posts seem to suggest it may be better to end at Varkala or Kovalam and fly back to the UK out of TVR.

I am looking to hire a car with Driver for the duration of the journey. Any tips on vehicle choice, recommends for operators (especially from anyone having done this route) will be gratefully received.

Many thanks for any help you can give.

Thank you Neenu-Raj. I checked out the Kerala tourism web site. The difficult with so many firms to choose from is picking any one of these. This is why I was looking for personal recommends from fellow travellers who have been to the region. Price is of course important but it isn't the only consideration. I need to do some more work on my possible itinerary and then I will be able to seek more detailed quotes.

Thanks for your report. Which homestay did you use in Vagamon.

You seem to recommend a drver. Which car is he using. Did you hire the car from the airport? How did you find him? is he from a tour company?

Hi,

I wondered what car company you ended up booking with and whether you would reccommend them?

I am going to Kerala for about 10 days in October this year and am also trying to organise a car and driver.

many thanks
