Are you looking for rental cars at Kochi Airport?
Call 94460 77571
When I was living abroad and visit my homeland Kochi in Kerala, one of the comforts I miss was the joy of driving my own car at my own comforts. Of course there are friends and relatives who are always willing to pick up from the Kochi Airport and share their car or drive me to places. But for various reasons, it is not always convenient to depend on others to drive me around. For example, I may want to visit my wife's house and it may not be comfortable my other relatives to accompany me each time I want to go there. Also, when I want to go around places with no specific reason, it will be hard to justify taking other relatives time to roam in the city. During short vacations, there are time constraints and I may want to visit places at odd times and may come back in the late nights. So, missing the comfort of my own car is one of the challenges for me and I am sure for many others visiting Kerala.
Rent a car from Kochi Airport and return it when you fly back
If you are like me and want to have a car at your convenience, renting a car at the Airport itself is one of the best options. There are few rent a car agencies at Kochi, offering various types of cars at the Cochin International Airport (Nedumbassery). I have listed some of the agencies at the bottom of this article.
Tips while renting a car
If you are new to renting a car in Kerala or if you are dealing with unknown people, you may want to consider couple of points:
Automatic gear cars for rent in Kochi
Many visitors from foreign countries are comfortable driving automatic cars which are not so common in India. If you are looking for a car with automatic gears, you may need to make a booking well in advance since the options are very limited. Some companies may even ask for higher rent for automatic cars. We contacted few agencies and only a very few of them offer automatic cars.
