However, this problem is easily solved, as most rental car companies in India will include the (very reasonable) cost of a driver. You will have to keep this in mind when booking the size of your vehicle if you are travelling in a group. You can reserve a car at the airport, or save yourself a little hassle, and organise one online. The route is simple, just hop onto NH44 which will take you directly into town.


·         There are a number of bus routes, but the recommended one for tourists is the Pushpak Airport Liner. The journey should only take 40 minutes, and cost you an estimated 250INR ($5). Airport transfers via a private company can be arranged too with ease, and in advance if you’d prefer that.


·         You’ll find the that taxis are right outside the terminal building, and they will take you into town for around about 650INR ($13), though be prepared to haggle.
