India car: Castle & King vs TGS Travel

Jump to last reply

I got couple of quotes for hiring a car & driver in India and need some input. These itinerarres are all with a Toyota Innova.

Itinerary 1:
Day 1: Delhi -> Jaipur
Day 2: Jaipur
Day 3: Jaipur -> Udaipur
Day 4: Udaipur
Day 5-6: Delhi -> Agra -> Delhi
Castle & King quote is $699

Itinerary 2:
same as itineary 1 but adding a second day Jaipur and second day in Udaipur
Castle & King quote is $699

I am puzzled how I could get more service for the same price! It is about 37,000 INR.

I decided to contact TGS Travel based reccomendations by julies and others.

Itineary 3:
same as itinerary 2 plus:
airport transfer from/to Delhi airport
airport transfer to Udaipur airport
one day car/driver for Delhi
TGS Travel quote: 52,000 INR + 6.5% tax

TGS did provide a note about their pricing sayng that they fulfill all government requirements including: taxes, car insurance, and health insurance & pensions for employees. The implication is that other agencies do not fulfill those requirements.

So I am concerned that:
- the C&K quote is too low and too good to be true compared to TGS
- the TGS quote is too high
- both quotes are too high based on comments about the C&K price that I got on other threads (assuming those comments were based on current prices with current fuel costs)
