Why you should go for car hire in India with chauffeuradvisor.com and not directly with driver itself for holiday trips in India?
A good driver and car hire in India is one of the top areas to research while planning a trip in India. Driving profession in India is among most complicated and yet to be standardized for smooth car hire. We still find a very small number of drivers who are graduate or good in speaking English. However, the drivers who are working as tourist drivers for foreigners for many years, have the basic knowledge and are able to communicate in English with travellers. The new generation of drivers is English speaking though has limited knowledge of the travel destinations and their driving experience is also less. So it’s really important to find one with balance of both skills- English & Experience.
The service quality and English knowledge of drivers also differs remarkably from one place to another. While the drivers based in metros and bigger cities like Delhi and Jaipur can be good enough in communicating in English, it is difficult to find a good English speaking local driver in remote places like Khajuraho and smaller towns of Rajasthan. For car hire in India with a good driver, we at Chauffeur Advisor don’t promise you miracles or boast of providing a dream driver, though we strive to provide you best available driver at your holiday destination.
