Those traveling to Bangalore on Budget Travel must remember that the city is quite expensive as compared to other cities in India. However with proper planning the trip can be more enjoyable and within your budget. Here are some tips that can help you save money during your trip in Bangalore.

Reaching Bangalore

By Air

Bangalore is the capital city of Karnataka state in India. Therefore it is easily accessible from all the major cities in India as well as abroad. If you are short on time then the fastest means of reaching Bangalore is by air. Both international and domestic air services operate in Bangalore. Airlines offer great discounts time to time. So if you are a budget traveler then all you have to do is keep track of these offers on the internet and make your flight arrangements accordingly. Jet Airways and Kingfisher Red are some of the best domestic airways for budget travelers.

By Train

Bangalore is well connected by train to all the major cities in India. Reaching Bangalore by train is comparatively cheaper and more comfortable. Consider it only if you are not short on time. Garib Rath Express and Sampark Kranti Express are good options for budget travelers.

By Bus

Intercity bus services connect Bangalore to major nearby cities like Mumbai, Madurai, Goa, and Chennai. Both government and private buses operate overnight journeys to Bangalore. Bus travel is far cheaper than train and air services. However the journey can be very tiring. Traveling by Volvo buses is a better option than traveling by other buses.

Budget Accommodations

Bangalore, being a major commercial city of South India, gets lots of visitors throughout the year for business purposes. Therefore there are many budget accommodations easily available in the city that provide you only with the basic amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. It is recommended that you must choose your accommodation within the main city area so that you save money on transportation. Some of the renowned budget hotels are Hotel Rama, Geo Hotel and Chancery Hotel.

Getting Around

The best means of getting around in the city is by auto rickshaw. They are cheaper than hiring a taxi as well as a good way to avoid the crowded public transport. Most of the auto rickshaws have a meter reading system and will charge accordingly. However if the meter does not work then it is better to bargain first before boarding to avoid any problems later on.
