Renting a car Delhi means you can explore far and wide and really get to know the city as well as the states of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.
Pick up your hire car when you arrive at Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi’s main airport, and head into the city along the eight-lane highway. Especially if you’re in Delhi on business, a rental car offers more flexibility than public transport, which can be crowded and off timetable. If you need to make frequent journeys between the city centre and outlying business districts such as DLF Cybercity, a rental car can make all the difference.
If you’re in Delhi to explore, there are plenty of exciting road trips. Unsurprisingly, one of the most popular is the three-and-a-half-hour drive to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal. Alternatively, drive two hours south along the Delhi-Jaipur Highway and stay at the restored 15th-century Neemrana Tijara Fort Palace, now a luxury hotel.
Like the UK, India rental cars drive on the left-hand side of the road. Traffic in Delhi can be extremely congested, and it’s not uncommon to be stuck for long periods in areas where construction or road repairs are taking place.
If you do choose to hire a car in Delhi, remember to watch out for the motorcyclists, rickshaws, buses, pedestrians and animals – including the sacred cows – who will all be sharing the road.
