Transfers and Transport Activities in India
The country is served by 26 International and 64 Domestic airports as of now, and most of the airports are well-connected to the city centre. International airports usually have luxury car rental services available, or else private taxis are easily obtained. In luxury car rentals, International brands as Hertz have a centre at airports of most metros and big cities, as do other high end radio cabs. Some of the popular car rentals/cab services include Fast Track in Chennai, Comfort Travel in Ahmedabad, Zoom car in Pune, Kochi and Chennai.
Private cab services are especially useful if you need to go to another nearby town from your city of de-boarding, as they offer luxury car rentals. Many private players that offer luxury travel have a wide range of luxury cars, and you can avail of any kind of car from a Toyota Camry to Skoda Superb, and even a BMW 3 series to Audi A3 or Mercedes C class or B class - so take your pick.
The metro cities of Chennai and Delhi have a rapid metro service from the airport to the city centre, and these provide for a smooth and quick transfer.
Luxury hotels in most cities and towns of India offer a pickup and drop facility, from and to the airport. At the time of booking your hotel you can check with them for airport transfer facility and request for the same. This is often a complimentary service, but some hotels/resorts may charge a fee too, so it is better to check and confirm the same. In tourist towns as Khajuraho, Ahmedabad, Bhubaneshwar, Udaipur and Agra such facilities are easily availed by even a day’s prior advance information to the hotel of stay, and most hotels offer this service complimentary.
Presently the Government is also focusing on developing five ports as cruise terminals, these being ports in Mumbai, Mormugao in Goa, Kochi, Mangalore and most recently Chennai. These terminals have all the facilities of an airport, including cab services to the city centre. So port transfers are not a problem for docking ship passengers.
