Here are our top tips on how to get behind the wheel of a rental car with some extra cash in your wallet:
Having your own wheels in Jaisalmer will give you more freedom to go where you want, when you want. Maybe you just can't wait to escape town, hit the open road, and see where the wind takes you. If that's the case, pick up one of our SUVs and have a look at the rivers in the surrounding area. If you just want to soak up the bright lights of the city, something small is a good idea. Zipping around busy streets will be a lot easier in a compact or economy car.
You'll be happy to hear that there's a great range of both economy and high-end rental vehicles on offer in Jaisalmer. What you go for will depend on how much you're willing to spend and what you're hoping to do. Specialty vehicles offer the best in mod cons and comfort. If you want to indulge yourself, why not pick an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a fancy mid-sized vehicle? Alternatively, if you're just after a set of wheels to get you around town as cheaply as possible, we can help you out with an economy compact vehicle (or something else that won't break the bank).
