The Kerala govt's transport dept has not yet given licenses to self-hire n drive operator companies in the state.
You might find some 'unofficially' operating self-drives local to Kochi if you make contacts with travel/taxi agencies. Chauffer driven is the only safe option, and they are in plenty - right from the airport or railway stn perimeter to all around.
Kochin- Kumarakom- Thiruvanthapauram- Kanyakumai are highly rated tourist destinations.
As you are traveling alone, a hatchback cab like Indica/Swift/Figo will be perfect.
But, as a lady traveler we suggest you to take special care in selecting a safe driver/ hotel for your travel and accommodation.
Also carry valid documents in case of any security check.
How many days you are planning your visit?
Do you have any special interests?( Cultural Shows, Ayurveda Treatments, Village life, Cooking Classes, Variety Foods, Shopping ,Adventure Activities, Photography Walks, Cycling).
Wishing you a safe and enjoyable journey.
