Hiring car and driver for tour in Rajasthan

How much should I be paying to hire a car and driver for 6 days of touring eg the Golden Triangle in March next year? I have one quote of around 22000INR for a car with a/c. There seems to be dozens of companies but are they reliable and have English speaking drivers. Does anyone think it might just be easier to travel by train? Advice welcome, thanks.

For 6 days Golden triangle tour, price for MUV should be around 20,000 INR and for mid size car like Tata Indigo or Swift Dezire price should be around 16,000 INR.

Train is always considered to be the best travel as it is comfortable & cheap. It is ideal to make the Golden Triangle Tour by train

Rate for A/c Chair Car with meals.

Delhi - Agra = Rs 450/-

Agra - Jaipur = Rs 350/-

Jaipur - Delhi = Rs 550/-

Train tickets are always available at Railway station for foreigners because there is a special Foreign tourist quota for foreigners.

Though train is cheaper and more convenient, I still feel car is the best to do the Golden Triangle because you not only see the cities but also the places in between. It gives you more flexibility and after a day you have better tuning with the driver (very important). It also saves you from dealing with various agencies, since you'll need to hire a car in each city for sightseeing.

Don't expect the driver to be fluent in English, but they can easily move you from point to point. If you want detailed information, you need to hire a guide in each city.

The quote of 12000 rupees by Fayaz appears to be for Tata Indica, which is a small hatchback car.

Thanks for that info on train prices-very tempting! Also agree with Vivek that car and driver would be so convenient. Just thought 22,000Rs was expensive.

Small car with a/c would be fine for two of us plus driver.

I recommend Sunshine House for delhi stay Very good place for homestay located centrally and they can pick up you from the airport also. Per Room they charge approx Rs 500 to 1000 per room with breakfast and for the golden triangle 6 day tour will cost you Rs 11000 with ac car, English speaking driver, all parking, sightseeing and Road tax included.
