I have 2.5 days for a road trip from Delhi-Jaipur-Agra-Delhi (Or Delhi-Agra-Jaipur-Delhi)
Any recommended travel agencies to book a car/van with driver? Any idea how much it could cost. have 2 adults + 2 little kids

Another big question: I have 4 baggages with me and it will be difficult to carry them along with me thru out the travel. Any suggestions on where to keep these baggages safely in Delhi, during my road trip? I know they closed the cloakroom facility in the Delhi airport.

Any suggestions for this trip appreciated (like booking car, hotels etc).

You may checkout www.megacabs.com or www.namasteindiatours.com.

Leaving luggage will be an issue. If you are staying at Delhi, then you can leave your luggage with the hotel. if you are not staying and directly moving to Agra, you can hire a room in Paharganj for around Rs. 300 per day, and keep your luggage in the room. Do not leave any valuable items and lock everything..

One more idea is book a small train journey ticket. Say Delhi-Agra, and on the basis of this, keep your luggage at New Delhi Railway Station Cloak room. There is no need to travel or get the ticket canceled. Let it lapse.....

For Hotel Suggestion, please suggest your budget, Economy (upto Rs. 500), Mid Range (500-2000) or higher.....
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

Thanks delhiwala....nice suggestion.
I am infact staying in Delhi for 1 night. Not sure if the hotel I reserved will allow to keep my baggage for extra couple of days with them.

How much will it cost if I want to hire a SUV(or equivalent) for the complete trip - so that I don't need to bother about the luggage and it will help me in making short trips too.

I am looking at mid range or little higher in the hotels.

Normally, all hotels allow this, you may confirm it from the hotel by email/phone.

SUV rental is very costly...But you may think of Multi Utility Vehicle like Toyota Innova, Chevrolet Tavera. They are comfortable and spacious. They should cost you around Rs. 2500 per day for a run of 250 KMs.

In Agra you may checkout following Hotels:

1. Amar Yatri Niwas-reservation@amaryatriniwas.com

2. Mayur Tourist Complex- mayur268@rediffmail.com,info@m ayurcomplex.com

In Jaipur:

1. Hotel Madhuban - madhuban@usa.net
2. Alsisar Haveli - alsisar@satyam.net.in, alsisar@alsisar.com
3. Hotel Meghniwas - email@meghniwas.com

Delhi-Agra-Ranthambore-Jaipur Trip Itinerary

I am planning a 7 day Golden Triangle trip with my parents. We will be travelling from Kolkata.Following is the itineary:

8th Nov : Reach New Delhi in the morning. Sightseeing(suggestions please). O/N stay at hotel.
9th Nov: Set out for Agra. Leave for Ranthambore in the evening.O/N stay in Ranthambore.
11th Nov: Jungle safari in Ranthambore. O/N stay in Ranthambore.
12th Nov: Set out for Jaipur. Sight seeing (suggestions please). O/N stay
13th Nov: Jaipur sightseeing. O/N stay.
14th Nov: Return to Delhi. Sightseeing if time permits.(we will be travelling back to kolkata at night)

Kindly suggest if any changes required in the itineray, like if it would be better to move to Jaipur and then after 2 day stay at Jaipur, move to Ranthambore?
Also is it possible to fit in Fatehpur Sikri and Ajmer somehow?
What are preferred sightseeing in Delhi and Jaipur considering our time of travel?
Could also please suggest budget hotels to stay in Delhi, Ranthambore and Jaipur?
Since I will travelling with parents, is it advisable to book a car for the whole trip or point to point car is better? In some of the forum posts, there was a suggestion to take the Shatabdi from Delhi to Agra..I was wondering if doing the trip on public transport will be very hectic considering that we will have to carry around our luggage.
What is the expenditure for booking a car? (We are three members travelling)

Thanks in advance!
