KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kolkata

  • Hire a car for your visit to Kolkata and allow yourself the freedom to explore both the city and the surrounding areas, visiting historical places like Hooghly-Chinsurah, about a 1h 30min drive to the north of Kolkata, on the banks of the Hooghly River. For a chance to spot tigers and visit one of the largest mangrove forests in the world, the Sundarbans, a UNESCO World Heritage national park, is around 80 miles outside the centre of Kolkata and easily reached with a Kolkata car rental.
  • Kolkata International Airport (CCU) has car rental companies located in the terminal buildings, such as Wenzcars, which has a desk in the arrivals hall of the international terminal. You could also choose a cheap car rental in Kolkata from a company like Europcar or Avis, which provide an airport shuttle to meet you off your flight and take you to your rental vehicle. The shuttle service may be paid, so be sure to check this with your car rental company.
  • When driving your Kolkata car rental, it is a good idea to expect the unexpected, especially if you are on some of the smaller roads in the old parts of the city. While there are many modern roads or expressways that bypass some of the more congested areas of the city, you will need to watch out for pedestrians on the older roads, as well as rickshaws and motorbikes that weave in and out of traffic at will. It’s important to note that Kolkata has a number of one-way streets that reverse direction depending on the time of day and the flow of traffic.
  • While Kolkata is renowned for its traffic congestion, it is better to travel outside of the rush hour, when the roads are filled with taxis, buses and commuters. Morning rush hour in Kolkata can end as late as 11:30 after starting at around 09:00, and the afternoon rush can last from around 16:30 to 20:00. If you are driving near schools, especially in the city centre, be aware the traffic will be particularly heavy during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times.

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

    When considering a cheap car rental in Kolkata, it is advisable to take into account the type of driving you will be doing. For city driving, it is a good idea to look at a compact economy car that is easy to navigate in the traffic and narrow streets of the city; it will also be easier to manoeuvre into parking spaces. If you intend to travel outside the city and visit some of the surrounding attractions, you could consider a standard SUV for additional comfort, while a passenger van is ideal for accommodating a larger touring party.

  • What’s the speed limit in Kolkata?

    When driving on the network of local urban roads in the Kolkata city centre, the speed limit is 40 km/h for a light motor vehicle (like a car rental) or a motorcycle. If you are using the expressways, the speed limit increases to 60 km/h for these classes of vehicles. There are speed cameras in operation along certain stretches of very busy and congested roads in Kolkata, and these can be identified by screens that show the speed at which you are travelling, with a “danger” warning if you are well over the speed limit. When you are collecting your cheap car rental in Kolkata, it is advisable to ask the customer service agent for some tips.

  • Where are the best places to park in Kolkata?

    For peace of mind and security, it is recommended you use one of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation car parks located throughout the city. While you will see cars parked haphazardly on the footpath, this is actually not permitted, so it is advisable to steer clear of leaving your car in unmarked parking.
