About India By Car and Driver
Ramesh Meena whom his friends call Ram was born in a remote village of Rajasthan in a poor household. When he was barely 17 years old, his father met with a mine accident and was paralyzed and confined to bed for the rest of his life. Having lost the sole bread-earner of the family and faced with a highly precarious financial condition, Ram had to drop out from his school and start earning to support his family. Having initially starting working as a blue-collar worker in various capacities, he worked for a few travel and tour companies as a driver with a meager monthly salary for about 4 years. When he was working for his last employer, he met , an American civil rights lawyer during her tour to north India with her family in the winter of 2008. Before meeting Ram American family had quite a frustrating experience with the other drivers of that company. Ram greeted her and the family with flowers in the morning and gave them a ride in the in one of the western states of India and the family started enjoying their trip. As a result of her interaction with Ram and the highly professional services received from him, she was so impressed with him and suggested him that Ram should start his own company. With a small amount received from family which she gave it to him generously as tips for his services along with lone received from a financial agency as well as borrowed money from some friends, and a strong motivation from the family , Ram finally started his own company, namely, India by Car and Driver with only one small car of his own. e initially drove the car himself for more than a year. During this period he was able to pay most of the mortgage of the car and save a littile bit of money to by one big car with a decent amount of lone from a bank. With a positive feedback from his clients, most of whom being the Western customers, he was able to get more and more business and now within the third year of starting his own company since January 2009, Ram owns 8 cars which include three small cars to cater to the budget travelers and five SUVies to cater to the needs of those who travel with the family and can afford to spend little more than a budget traveler. Ram attributes the success of his business to his sincerity, honesty and professionalism, the traits which he expects his drivers to possess as well. In addition to these traits, Ram gives the greatest credit for his success in the business to several of his clients whom he served and who took the pain to take out time and document a positive feedback about his services. Several of the past recipients of his services even agreed to interact with his prospective clients and answer questions about the services of India by Car and Driver. Some even made the videos of their trip and agreed to share their pleasant experience with others by upload their videos on the net. One of such recently uploaded video can view by clicking here:

From the moment our driver, Ragesh, picked us up at our hotel in Delhi until the moment we were dropped back at the airport at the end of our trip we were completely looked after. Ragesh is a great driver and I was in awe of his spacial awareness which was essential in the Indian traffic. He’s also a lovely man who made sure that we were always comfortable and happy. The local guides were knowledgable and the itinerary was busy and very interesting. At the end of our holiday there was some doubt about the flight we’d booked from Shimla to Delhi in order to catch our flight home. The company decided to rearrange our travel to Delhi and, at very short notice, cars and trains were booked and we were put on a train and met off it. A seamless change for us but a lot of work behind the scenes. Thank you guys, I will be back.

India by Car and Driver came personally recommended and in every way exceeded expectation. We travelled with two young children (two and seven months) and although we set off with concerns we need not have. Huge thank you to our driver Bipin particularly and to Surendra and Fen of India by Car and Driver for going the extra mile for us and making our tour in India such a hit.

Just back from a 23day holiday organised by Ramesh and Surendra, brilliantly driven by Ragesh. What a wonderful, caring, efficient company. We had to change our plans towards the end of our holiday and they organised things brilliantly. Just thinking that we want to return next year again!

We cannot thank Ramesh enough for organising our trip. Everything was organised for us which included our personalised itinerary, guides, amazing hotels, internal flights and our own driver who stayed with us throughout our 10 day stay. We had No.1 driver Raj who treated us like his family. Nothing was too much for him, and he ensured we saw everything we asked to see. I would recommend this company not only for their professionalism but also for value for money.

My wife Kerstin and I had a very memorable trip to the above cities and their splendid attractions. The Taj Mahal naturally took first place being without doubt the most beautiful building in the world! The Red Fort in Delhi was magnificent as was the Red Fort in Agra. The fort in Alwar was impressive and of course the incomparable Amber fort and the palaces of Jaipur were astounding. Our hotels left nothing to be desired and not least our car and driver were superb with Dilip the driver being more a friend and guide to both of us. We recommend him highly and and wish him well in his career. Thank you Mr. Ramesh and your firm India by Car and Driver.
