Every trip to Goa takes me back to those Goa trips during college. Zipping around on battered scooters from one cafe to another or cautiously and precariously driving after long nights at Cubana and Love Passion Karma. Over age I've incredulously chosen to rent a car instead of a scooter and with the intensive road projects around Central Goa, I've been glad I chose a car.
While getting a self drive car on rent isn't very difficult, it's important to not get too overwhelmed by the swarm of touts that approach you at every beach or hotel entrance. After much haggling and looking I came to this conclusion about how much the following rides will cost from the numerous car rentals across Goa. -A basic manual car without a driver - Rs 800 to Rs 1500 a day -An automatic car or a bigger manual car - Rs 1500 a day
-A scooter - Rs 300 to Rs 600 a day.
-A driver will cost you an average of Rs 300 to Rs 500 additional per day.
This time post a red-eye flight in search of a transport to the hotel, I came across this stall of GoaMiles by the Government that helps you take a ride (similar to Uber). It's simple to use, efficient and extremely reasonable compared to the other car rentals at the airport. We used the App twice and have only good things to say about it! Try, try, try! at Goa
