Here are our top tips on how to hit the road with extra cash in your pocket:
Haldwani has lots on offer. You could spend a while in this place and hardly scratch the surface. If you'd like to soak up as much as you can in this bustling metropolis, you'll need a rental car. Keep in mind that driving around the city usually comes with tight streets and limited parking spaces. But don't worry — a mini or compact car can make this much easier to navigate. If you're aiming to head straight out of the city and cruise around some of the valleys that Haldwani is famous for, you'll want something with more room to move. A full-size or mid-size SUV are perfect for scenic road trips.
Sometimes it's all about the journey, which makes your car choice particularly important. If you're planning an unforgettable road trip around Haldwani, a roomy SUV could be the ideal solution. If you want the cheapest price possible and plan on doing a lot of city driving, a budget compact is hard to beat. All you need to do is choose what's going to be the best fit, throw your bags in the back seat, and hit the road.
Driving in a foreign location doesn't have to make you grip the steering wheel nervously. If you're making your way to Haldwani, get confident in the driver's seat with these tips:
The left side is where you'll be motoring along in Haldwani. Take note that the controls of your rental car here, like the steering wheel and stick shift (if your car has manual transmission), will be on the opposite side of what you're used to.
Finding a place to park in Haldwani isn't always quick and easy. That's why many book a hotel that has its own parking. When leaving the car around town, keep an eye on the signage. Overstaying the time limit could result in a steep fine.
As with many destinations, you can expect slightly heavier traffic just before and after work during the week. However, due to its smaller population of roughly 139,500, traffic isn't a major problem in Haldwani.
Speed limits vary across Haldwani, but usually range from 40 km/h to 120 km/h. Most residential roads have a maximum speed of 40 km/h unless stated otherwise.
Generally speaking, your rental car company will charge the amount stated on the fine to your credit card, including local taxes. Alternatively, they may share your information with the relevant local law enforcement agency, who'll then send a fine to your postal address.
It's against the law to use your cell phone while driving around Haldwani, and you may also receive a fine for just handling your phone when you're in control of a vehicle. That said, using hands-free or Bluetooth functions is permitted, as long as your attention stays on the road.
In Haldwani, it's a fineable offence to drive with a BAC (blood alcohol content) above 0.03%. If you're thinking of having a couple of drinks with lunch or dinner, leave the car at your hotel.
Traffic laws in Haldwani permit drivers at a red light to turn into the direction of traffic closest to them, without having to wait for a green signal. Before making the maneuver, the vehicle must come to a complete stop and the driver must be certain that the way is clear before continuing on.
Yes, so buckle up. However, there may be exceptions for certain vehicles run by public transportation systems.
