What is the most popular rental car category in Kerala?

Thinking of a road trip in Kerala? Climb behind the wheel of a compact car. A breeze to park, good fuel economy, and increased agility are just a few reasons they're the most popular sort of rental car here. When you roll down the busy streets of Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi, a compact car will make driving a dream.

It's always nice to get out of the city, and if you do, you'll be richly rewarded. With mountains, rolling hills, and coastal plains to see, Kerala is ripe for exciting day trips. A bigger vehicle like an SUV or a four-wheel drive will give you and the family more comfort and space for those longer scenic drives.

Should I get a luxury rental car in Kerala?

First of all, there's a huge variety of both high-end and economy rental vehicles on offer in Kerala. What you end up opting for is largely dependent on how much you want to spend and the activities you've got planned. Specialty vehicles often spare no expense when it comes to comfort and class. If you feel like splashing out, why not go for an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a cushy mid-sized vehicle? Alternatively, if you're just after a set of wheels to zip around town in as economically as possible, go for a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
