transportation from Airport to hotel in Varanasi

I received a quote from Suryauday Haveli hotel for transportation from the airport (one way) for 1550R. Sounds very expensive for a fairly short drive. Any advice on other options ?

Hi jennifer V

From varanasi airport to shivala ghat , the distance is approx 21 kms..and a taxi will charge you max 700 rs.. An autorikshaw will charge you approx 250 rs..

You can easily get taxi/auto outside the airport..

Thank you for your advice on this. It looks like the original charge included getting the taxi from the hotel to the airport as your quote was half price !!

A pickup from the airport or a drop off to the airport can easily be arranged between Rs 700 to Rs 800 .

Whereas an auto rickshaw may charge Rs 500 for pickup or drop off.

I am talking about a cab which fits maximum 4 persons ..

Prices may extend if its a bigger cab ..

Surodaya Haveli is quite expensive hotel so their transfers should be costly. It has a very typical location , better to arrange with hotel. It is true , you will find taxi easily in 600 to 700 Rupees but risky. Try to hire taxi from reliable sources, it looks expensive but worthful.

I am sure hotels vehicle will be new & clean and possible Toyota Innova or some upper model car. Moreover good hotels/ travel agent send airport rap with drivers who pick you inside the airport without any hassle. Hiring prepaid taxi / autos suites budget travelers.
