Travel from Darjeeling to Bagdogra

We will be in Darjeeling for Diwali, the 13th November. But we fly out of Bagdogra on November 14th at 9:45. We have two questions: Is taxi still the fastest/best way to get there, how much does it cost, AND could we get one on Diwali Nov 13th? Second, would we need to go the night before (that is spend the night in Bagdogra) rather than in Darjeeling? We want to be able to enjoy the Diwali festival in the best way possible. Thanks for any ideas!

Taxi is the fastest mode of transport from Bagdogra to Darjeeling. It will charge approx Rs.1800 for 4 seater and Rs.2800 for 7 seater. It can be arraged by the hotel or by local travel agent. You should stay in Darjeeling at least for 2 nts. Diwali can be enjoyed in Dajeeling.

Merylin,

I would suggest coming down to Bagdogra on the night before, you can consider staying at Marina's Motel just beside the airport. They will not let you stay inside the airport overnight or even 3 hours before your flight time.
