A rental car in Bengaluru gives you easy access to the city and its surrounding neighbourhoods, as well as the wider regions of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
Bengaluru is also known as the Silicon Valley of India. If you’re visiting on business, you’ll find hiring a car makes any frequent journeys to the city’s different tech hubs, Electronic City in the south and Whitefield in the east, quick and easy.
Hire a car to collect from Kempegowda International Airport or HAL Bengaluru Airport when you arrive and start your self-drive adventure. Some popular road trips include the drive north to Nandi Hills – an old hill station in the Chikkaballapur district of Karnataka – where you’ll find temples, gardens, scenic views and a restaurant.
You could also head south west, to the city of Mysuru, formerly Mysore, where you can spend some time exploring the World Heritage Site of Mysore Palace.
Traffic in Bengaluru can be extremely congested, so don’t be surprised if you’re stuck in gridlock for quite some time. You should also expect to see lots of construction and road repairs taking place.
Finally, remember you’ll be sharing the road with motorcyclists, buses, auto rickshaws and pedestrians – as well as several sacred cows, which are free to wander wherever they please.
Driving a hire car in Bengluru is an experience in itself, so rent a car and enjoy your India adventure.
