KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in New Delhi

  • You should be at least 20 years old to hire a car in New Delhi. However, if you’re younger than that but above 18, you can still get cheap car hire in New Delhi but only in the lower vehicle categories, such as economy and compact. New Delhi car hire providers may also charge an extra fee for drivers below 20. Everyone must provide a valid driving licence, and it should have been valid for at least a year. International travellers may require additional documents, including a copy of their passports, valid proof of identity and an International Driving Permit (IDP). Car hire payments are normally made through credit cards, but some providers accept cash and debit cards. Remember to check your provider’s payment terms in advance for convenience.
  • Safety is a priority for parents visiting New Delhi with their kids. You should protect the safety of your little ones, even when using cheap car hire in New Delhi, by taking time to learn about the safety precautions for driving in the city. New Delhi city laws require all children below 12 to always sit in the rear seat. Also, you can’t leave your children unattended in your New Delhi hire car. Finally, while the city doesn’t have a rule on restraining your little one in a child safety seat, consider doing it as a safety precaution, especially if they’re young.
  • If you plan to enjoy your favourite alcoholic drinks during your stay in New Delhi, consider registering an additional driver in your car hire agreement. Driving under the influence of alcohol or any other drug is illegal in New Delhi and can attract hefty fines. Additionally, you risk getting involved in an accident. However, ensure your co-driver meets all legal car hire requirements in New Delhi, including age and licence restrictions. Also, don’t forget to inform your car hire provider and register the extra driver, to avoid violating the car hire agreement.
  • Car hire in New Delhi offers a number of advantages with regard to your freedom of movement in the city. Public transport can be chaotic and may be challenging if you are not used to travelling in Indian conditions. Hiring a car gives you greater freedom and control over where you can go and how you get there. Driving conditions, however, may be very different to what you are used to, and your decision to hire a car should be balanced against your skills as a driver. A car is certainly advantageous overall but you should still be well prepared for inconveniences and heavy traffic.
  • Carzonrent has an office for car hire in New Delhi in Terminal 3 (International Terminal), just after the customs section at Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL). This Indian company holds the franchise in India for Hertz International. Europcar and Avis have offices at Terminal 1 (Domestic Terminal), which is convenient if you are arriving from another destination in India. You can also take the shuttle bus from Terminal 3, if you are arriving on an international flight and would prefer not to go through Carzonrent for any reason. Please note that booking a car at the airport is more expensive than booking online.
  • Driving in New Delhi requires constant attention and good reflexes. The traffic is notoriously chaotic and drivers should be prepared for the unexpected. All kinds of vehicles are on the roads, ranging from bikes, motorbikes, rickshaws, tuk-tuks, cars, trucks and buses, through to horses, donkeys, tractors and pedestrians. At times, it may seem like "anything goes" and not everyone cares about traffic rules, so keep calm and be prepared to be flexible when considering New Delhi car hire.
  • There are a number of challenges involved with driving in New Delhi; everything from traffic jams, poorly-maintained roads to unconventional vehicles and road users can cause a motorist stress. India’s roads have been rated "the fourth most dangerous in the world" and require some attention and calm nerves to navigate. Rush hour in New Delhi is actually 12h long and runs from 08:00 until 20:00 every day.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in New Delhi for $72 or less
  • Book your rental car in New Delhi at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in New Delhi are around 45% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in New Delhi

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in New Delhi?

    When considering car hire in New Delhi, it is best to choose a car that is not too large, as navigating New Delhi’s crowded traffic is easier in a smaller, more nimble vehicle; but it is also prudent to choose a strong, modern car with good safety features, just in case of the unlikely event that you end up needing them.

Speed cameras have been installed at several problem points in the city, and speeding around these areas is likely to be recorded and punished.

Pros:

I want honesty. AVIS advertise that their location is in terminal but it's not. A man shows up after 2 hrs based on a call u make after you land to take you to an office 20 mins away and makes you pay for the car he came in to pick you up. AVIS in Delhi airport is a SCAM

Cons:

Start with being honest about what you are doing and then we can discuss methods of improvement
