  • If you are heading to Kerala with your kids and you plan on renting a car, be sure to know the child car seat rules in advance to avoid trouble with the traffic authorities and for the safety of your children. In Kerala, kids need to be in a safety seat appropriate for their size in the back seat of the vehicle. Kids under the age of 13 may not ride in the front seat of a vehicle. If you need a child car seat for your car rentals in Kerala, be sure to ask for one in advance to make sure it will be available for you when you pick up your vehicle.
  • In Kerala, India, it is also possible to rent a car along with a driver. This means that you will still have all the freedom and flexibility of having your own Kerala car rental, but you will have the added benefit of having a driver familiar with the area driving your rental car for you. This comes at an extra cost but can be helpful if you are not used to driving in places like India.
  • Kerala is known for its scenic drives through the mountains and along the coast. The road from Nilambur to Nadukani is famous for being one of the prettiest and one of the most popular drives in the region. There are also several other scenic roads worth exploring in the state of Kerala depending on what you are looking for. Just make sure you are prepared for long-distance drives with enough fuel and a GPS navigation device, as the roads are sometimes not clearly marked.
