KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kochi

  • Public transport in Kochi is limited to buses and taxis; while the buses are efficient, public transport will always take up more of your valuable holiday time than having your own car hire in Kochi. India is a big country and all of its cities are large, so Kochi car hire will ensure that you have the ability to see as much as you can and want to on your own schedule.
  • There are multiple car hire companies nearby Cochin Airport (COK), and there are shuttle bus services between the airport and car hire in Kochi. There are signs that will direct you to the collection point for the shuttle buses once you’ve landed at Cochin Airport. Details of the shuttle bus will be provided with your booking once confirmed, and make sure to remember to bring your driver’s licence and confirmation of your booking with you, as well as a credit card in your name.
  • India’s roads are busy as the population is high, and the capacity of the roads in its cities struggle to keep up. Be aware that both drivers and pedestrians are constantly in a rush and inattention is common, so keep your wits about you as you may come across people stepping straight onto the road and drivers not paying attention to traffic. Everything in Indian cities is fast paced and the roads are no exception, so driving your car hire in Kochi can be daunting, but as long as you are on alert you shouldn’t be too concerned.
  • Rush hour in Kochi is the majority of the day. Evenings see the roads busy with transport vehicles, and days see the roads busy with locals travelling for work as well as regular tourism, so realistically Kochi’s roads can be busy at any moment. Religious processions such as weddings and funerals are common and can hold up traffic, and there are occasionally animals that can step out onto the road and hold up traffic, so be prepared for delays and stay alert.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Kochi for €33 or less
  • Book your car hire in Kochi at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Kochi are around 16% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Kochi

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Kochi?

    Depending on whether you plan to do a lot of driving with your hired car in Kochi and beyond, you may feel more comfortable in a smaller car on India’s narrow and busy roads. Many streets in smaller towns are not wide enough for two lanes, so a smaller vehicle may help you here as well. A navigation system and air conditioning would be definite bonuses while driving in India, as any new country can be confusing to navigate and India’s climate can get uncomfortably hot for long car rides.

Cons:

I was supposed to get my car at the kochi airport. After getting out of the airport, I looked around for someone from Avis, but found no one. Waited for 45 mins and kept looking around, but no one arrived. Meanwhile asked around at the airport if there was any Avis counter, but there was none. Finally called the number provided by kayak, and the guy who picked up said it was the wrong number and put down the phone. I tried the number again, same guy picked up, this time I was more adamant and asked him if he was from a car rental agency, he said yes. I asked if it was Avis, he said no, but they had a tie up with Avis. I told him I was supposed to receive a car at the airport, he said he knew nothing of that, and besides he didn’t have any cars to give anyways. With that he disconnected the phone. Thank you Kayak for a fantastic start to vacation. Never again will I use your website.

Car hire insurance in Kochi

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Kochi car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Kochi.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Kochi car hire.
