Getting Around in Kerala
[add Local transport mode]

On arrival, take a prepaid taxi from the airport to
your hotel. You can order one in the arrival lounge. This avoids haggling and provides a measure of security. For further short distance travel, use taxis or the local bus service (very cheap but, as often is the case, buses are generally overcrowded).
Hardly any traveller dares to drive a hired car. This is definitely a smart decision when you don't have any driving experience on the local roads (that sometimes tend to illustrate the survival of the fittest). A few adventurous types buy a motorbike for the duration of their stay, the legendary Royal Enfield built in Madras being the favourite one. Trains are convenient for longer distances and, again, very cheap. There is no need for booking seats when travelling shorter distances within Kerala. However, it is a must if you're planning to travel to the neighbouring states. Check the site below for further information
