    Which are reliable travel companies in Kerala?


    Are you planning a tour in sightseeing India? Searching for reliable tour operator for a transportation? Scroll through this page and get expert advice to pan your travel.

    We are planning tour in Kerala and have all reservations done except the transportation. We need vehicle with driver but nowadays when we read online about reviews of companies we feel scared not to become another victim of these companies. So wanted to ask experts here that which are reliable travel companies provide vehicle with driver for tour?

    The reservation you mentioned is about stay I believe. You have not mentioned from which place your travelling. So regarding this I would give general information about travel. You can contact travel agencies near by your place. Because they will have cab's and bus facility. But hiring a cab from them is better because they take the responsibility for your travel and safety. Bus facility can be taken but the stay and the duration is decided by them only and even site viewing is also done by them. Few years back we had a package tour to Kerala where food, stay and site viewing was done by the travel agency itself. It was a period of 1 week. By hiring a cab is will not have such facility. Only hiring a cab and safety about journey is their responsibility, suppose if you reserved about stay, food and etc then you can contact the nearest travel agency and find out their travel cost.
    Common travel agency which I know is Vikram travel, Nirmala Travels, VRL Travels, Blue lines travels, Duragamba Travels. These are the famous travel agency in Karnataka.
    As you have mentioned about safety I would prefer you to contact these travel agency and find your convenient way to travel.
    Happy and Safe Journey.

    As you have already arranged for your stay, I would suggest that you contact the hotel/lodge to arrange for the tour trip.
    Some hotels have their own tie up, and some only give it as a liaison service. Whatever be it, at least you can have some reliance on the hotel.Make your requirements very clear to the hotel people. Then they will tell you what they can do, what alternatives etc. Sometimes they will say'You come here, then we can arrange'.That also will do.

    Please also visit the Kerala Tourism Development Corporation web site and see the possible trips and vacancies. In Trivandrum KTDC has variety of conducted tours. In Kochi also they have a few conducted tours (some daily, some on particular days). So first visit their site and have some idea. You can also contact them and tell them your requirements. They may be able to help you.

    Dr. Rao,
    I check with services and this is FYI
    South India by car & driver, 5 stars, 5 rating, Kerala - They don't provide car service to domestic people only international.
    Kerala Taxis - They are really slow in response and had fixed itinerary to follow. Till not I am unable to speak with them, they did not pick any call.

    Many times what the website advertises will not be what we actually get in terms of Travel etc. Ratings may not reflect the actual service and yes, often the services are difficult to get by. You have not mentioned where you are travelling to.

    If you have made all arrangements, did you contact the accomodation or the place you are staying in.

    1.What I do is ask around in friends what's app group or blogs that give the details of the people who are good in local transport.

    2.The manager of the resort or the guest house would be a good person to ask as he would be safe because, it would reflect on him and resort too.

    3.KTDC website offers other facilities for boat and vehicle rentals, try asking them once
