Jaipur to Jodhpur by road or plane
 
I am traveling through Rajasthan in November and trying to figure out the best way to get to Jodhpur from Jaipur. Here are a few questions---any advice would be greatly appreciated.

*If we hired a car and driver, how long would the trip take?

*Are the roads safe (we would make sure to travel during the day, arriving no later then sunset)?

*Kingfisher Airlines has a direct flight to Jodhpur to at 14:40. Has anyone taken this flight? Is it reliable?

Thanks!

Third possibility - you could take the train. About five and a half hours on an express. See http://www.seat61.com/India.htm for train info.

We took the flight from Jaipur to Jodhpur on Kingfisher at 11:00 AM or so. It took less than an hour. No problems except that it took off early!

Kingfisher is a classy airline. No stress there.

Drive is about 5 hours I think...? The roads are as safe as your driver. Don't stress about that stuff.

More to the point, what do YOU feel like doing?

Thanks all. I think we are going to spring for the flight, just because it saves some time.
