Mileage limit on car

I've provided a quote by a tour operator who's set a limit of 1350 km over 9 days. Our itinerary is as follows ;

Cochin

Munnar

Thekaddy

Allepey

Kovalam

Trivandrum

Is this reasonable ?

Distance from Cochin and return as per the itinerary provided by you will be about 850 kms. Extra kms depends on how much you use the vehicle in each destination. I think about 1200 kms would be reasonable.

We'd be leaving from Trivandrum airport if that makes a difference

Hi

For small car like indica daily km limit is 150km(150 * 9 =1350) and it costs you around rs1600/day.

The cab you booked from cochin after 9 days sightseeing need to drop you at trivandrum and you need to pay cab charges back from trivandrum to kochi.

The total km quoted shall not required to cover all places.but you still require to pay for daily 150km each which is the minimun.if you travel more than 1350km in 9 days only you need to pay extra.if it is less than 1350km,you still need to pay the quoted rate.It will be reasonable if costs doesnt exceed Rs 13500/-

Arun

The mileage limit is on the whole tour package. If we exceed this limit, the additional cost is 13.50/- per km. does that sound ok should it be higher, taking into account the car has to be returned to Cochin?

Thx
