Top tips for renting a car in Punjab

  • The best airport to fly into if you’re visiting Punjab is Amritsar Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport (ATQ) in Raja Sansi. It hosts different car rental providers, including Europcar, Keddy, Instant Cabs, MyChoize Car Rental, Myles, and Shouqi. The car rental counters are conveniently located in the arrivals hall. You can also go to off-site airport locations like Ludhiana, where you’ll find different car rental agencies with a selection of vehicles.
  • Road conditions in Punjab are generally good. Most main roads are paved and well-maintained. A few local roads need some improvement. You’ll come across several sections off the main roads with potholes, so observe caution when driving through these areas. Major towns in Punjab have narrow road sections with vehicles parked by the roadside. Drive carefully through these areas. We don’t recommend driving at night, especially outside the main towns, since roads are not adequately lit.
  • There are multiple toll roads in Punjab, with several toll plazas on highways. Major toll plazas in Punjab are found on the Amritsar-Wagah Border Highway, Jalandhar-Pathankot Highway, Chandigarh-Ambala Highway, and Kurali-Kiratsar Sahib National Highway. Some toll plazas in the Indian state accept payments using FASTag, an electronic tag for automatic toll collection. Consider renting a car with an automatic toll payment feature if you plan to use toll roads in Punjab.
  • Traffic is generally mild in most cities across Punjab during the day. It can get busy during morning and evening commutes. You’ll encounter the heaviest traffic in major cities such as Amritsar, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, and Patiala. Major highways like the Ludhiana-Moga Highway and the Amritsar-Delhi Expressway can also get busy during rush hours. Plan your trip accordingly or avoid driving during peak rush hours. Leave early to avoid getting caught in traffic.

Punjab car rentals are more affordable when you compare the overall costs of hiring a taxi to various destinations in the state.

  • What is it like driving in Punjab?

    In Punjab, driving is on the left-hand side of the road, so you may take some time to adapt if you’re used to driving on the right. Major towns are heavily congested with human and motorized traffic, so be prepared to slow down when driving through these areas. The general speed limit in Punjab is 25 km/h (16 mph) in school zones, 50 km/h (31 mph) on municipal roads, 70 km/h (44 mph) on state highways, and 80 km/h (50 mph) on motorways. Speed limits are strictly enforced, so adhere to the posted limits to avoid hefty fines.

  • How old should I be to rent a car in Punjab?

    The legal driving age in Punjab is 18 years old. However, most car rental agencies will rent you a car if you’re at least 21 years old. Some require renters to be at least 25 and will charge a young driver’s fee for drivers under 25 who have attained the legal driving age. To rent a car in Punjab, you must provide a valid driving license from your country of origin. You must also provide an International Driving Permit (IDP) since English is not the primary language in the state. Other mandatory requirements include additional identification documents like a passport or photo ID and a major credit card for payment.
