Top tips for hiring a car at Kochi airport

  • Car hire at Kochi Airport may be one of the best ways to experience the city and surrounding areas without having to deal with local taxi drivers trying to haggle you for more money or trying to deal with Uber drivers when they call to ask where you're going. You can take control of your time in the city and visit Mattancherry Palace or go swimming in Cherai Beach or drive through the oldest synagogue in India, all without trying to work out the bus system or waiting for a driver to arrive.
  • One of the best things about a Kochi Airport car hire is, like in most of India, you can often choose whether you want a self-driving hire or if you want to hire a driver along with the car. Self-driving doesn't mean the car drives itself; it means you do, while hiring a driver gives you the added bonus of having someone who knows the city and area well and will run on your schedule.
  • Before leaving the car park with your vehicle, walk around the vehicle and do a thorough inspection. If there are any dents or scratches, make a note of them on the hire agreement before you sign it. This is to avoid any problems when you return the car. Check the boot of the car for a hazard sign, a wrench, a jack for the car and a spare tyre. These things should be included but sometimes get missed.
  • Traffic in Kochi, like the rest of India, can be very busy, and cars move very close to each other, squeezing more lanes into traffic than the roads suggest. For this reason, it's always easier to choose a smaller, compact car hire at Kochi Airport, rather than a bulkier vehicle. Popular cars in the city are all compact models. If you have a larger family, consider hiring a sedan that isn't very wide. One of the most popular cars in Kochi is the Suzuki Maruti.
  • Book your car hire at Kochi airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car at Kochi airport

  • What do I need to hire a car at Kochi Airport?

    The requirements to hire a vehicle at the airport are the same throughout India. The legal driving age in India is 18 years old and some companies will let you take a vehicle as long as you have your licence. Major companies like AVIS and Budget generally require you to be at least 21 and have had a licence for a full year. If you're under 25, expect to be charged a young driver surcharge. You'll need a valid credit card with enough funds to pay for the hire and the deposit, and you'll need a form of identification. Remember, you must use a credit card of your own or of someone who is present. If you've booked online, the same card must be used.

  • Where will I find the car hire at Kochi Airport?

    The company desks are located inside the International Arrivals terminal of Kochi Airport. As you make your way through the luggage claim area, you'll find them located to the left of you. There are signs directing you to the hire desks. Once you've received your keys, you'll be taken to the car park outside the terminal, where you can do the final inspection.

  • What amenities does the car hire centre have at the airport?

    The car hire centre isn't a dedicated centre, so there are no facilities specific to it. Once you leave the airport in Kochi, there won't be any facilities available. Make sure you take advantage of what's in the airport – exchange the money you need, draw cash, buy something at the convenience store or use the bathroom – before heading to your vehicle.  

  • Which car hire companies will pick you up at Kochi airport?

    Car hire companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Kochi airport to off-airport locations include Avis, and SS Travels.

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.
