Delhi-Udaipur by bus... good idea?

My husband and I have a sudden impulse to visit Udaipur for 2-3 days this weekend, and of course train tickets are not available any more. Have any one of the people here traveled by bus on this route?

We are a young couple used to 10-12 hours bus travel on our way to Himachal/ Uttarakhand, but haven't tried this route before. Many of the options on redbus.in don't have bus reviews either. Would be grateful for any light you can throw on this.

Dear

NH-8 road condition between dehli-jaipur is not at all good and comfortable as 6 laning,flyovers work is going on with long jams withhigh traffic resulting slow speed. If you can travel in latr night than the traffic is very less on roads. You can also break your journey in jaipur than catch the intercity train for udaipur at 6 am and another one at 2 pm. In this trains without reservation you can easily get seats and travel time is also 7 hrs. From jaipur to udaipur road condition is excellent via bhilwara,chittor.

Finding train tickets from jaipur to udaipur is also tough at times. In case you are unable to find train ticket, catch volvo from delhi operated by RSRTC - Bikaner house, pandara road, near India gate. The bus routes via jaipur.

taking a Volvo is good ideas when you donot get a tickets in Mewar or Chetak express.

we consider train journey is best ..

there is night train start from Nizamuddin around 10 pm called Dehradun express, you may try this train. If seat is available take thus up to Chittaurgarh. You will reach chittaurgarh by 12 noon next day. Rake a bus from Chittaurgarh to udaipur. Which is just 2.5 hours by RSRTC Bus.

There is also Ac sleeper from Delhi to Udaipur run by Rishabh travel is another option. check website to have contact no.of rishabh travel.

there are two day train runs from Jaipur to udaipur and Jaipur and tickets are normally available one is 06.45 am a d other is around 2 pm .. Check if tickets is available you can travel safely /Comfortably by train .

There is night train Jaipur to udaipur also ..but mostly tickets not available in close days.

Tatkal is also a option to be tried before you go Bus journey.

Try your best options

Good luck to you

Hi ratherdumb,

Agreed with udaipurmagic, try for train tickets first and then for Volvo / Bus tickets as train journey will be more comfortable. RSRTC volvo is good compared to others as private buses wait for passengers and often drivers pick up extra ones on the way passengers also.
