Top tips for renting a car in Kerala

  • Unlike most places, Kerala is one of the few states where you can request a car rental driver, especially if you're new to India. But many renters prefer to drive their own car. Renting a car with a driver offers the flexibility of being picked up from your address and getting dropped at your destination, like the airport, at no extra cost. A driver who knows the locality can explain some local topics and experiences. You won't be charged extra, but you may give a tip. Note that a car rental driver is not your guide. They only help with general questions but cannot accompany you inside the attractions.
  • Companies offering Kerala car rentals are found near airports such as Cochin International Airport and major cities like Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram, Alappuzha, and Thrissur. Rental vehicles are distinguished by black number plates with yellow letters. In case of an unexpected incident, call the rental office and the police immediately, and secure the vehicle if you can. Remember to note down the names, telephone numbers, and addresses of people involved, including a witness. You will need these details to compose the accident report.
  • The car rental period in Kerala is extendable but at most 30 days (for most car rental agencies). Inform the car rental representatives at least three hours before the stipulated drop-off time or as indicated on the rental agreement if you want to keep the car for more hours or days. Note that the extension is not guaranteed and depends on availability. Always return your car on time; otherwise, you will be penalized for every day you defaulted.
  • With Kerala car rentals, you have to follow specific rules, but they differ from one company to the next. For instance, you cannot use the car for pacemaking, racing, towing, and teaching another person to drive. Do not exceed the manufacturer's recommended maximum weight when loading the trunk and secure the luggage safely. You must seek written consent at the rental office if you need to go outside Kerala. Crossing a state border can be costly because the rental agency has to pay taxes. Before you drive off, check whether the price quoted allows interstate driving.
