Who to hire for cab service to Agra from Delhi (Day trip)?
 
Hi All,

We are 3 friends in our 20's travelling to Agra from Delhi. We considered train, but then we have finally decided to take a cab as it'll be quicker, and we can go on our own and time it as we please. Plus we wanted to reach back to Delhi at or before 9.30pm for a quick dinner.

We're considering the "Indigo" class car, which seems to be a good mix of budget and space for 3 people + driver obviously.

My question is who do I go with, I've called a few people like travelindiaonline and they say costs are Rs 9 per hour to agra and back. Roughly, not including driver allowance, meals, or tickets to attractions (Taj Mahal, Agra Fort & Sikandara Tomb) we're looking at Rs 4700 for the day from them. Link - travelindiaonline.in/

Does that sound fair? Or do you guys have any other recommendations as to who else we can try booking with. Indigo is the lowest car class we want to go obviously.

Has anyone booked a driver + car to Agra and had a good and inexpensive time? Please let me know, I wanted to get the booking done for this weekend :)

Sounds like a good deal.

You mean Rs 9/Km I think and not per hour.

It's a good deal but whats the driver allowance they ask? Driver allowance is usually when there is a night stay out of station.I took a taxi(Tata Indigo car) once to Agra but it was when the rate was Rs 7/Km and about Rs 3800 total for driver+car.

You can ask any taxi stand near you or the office can arrange as well as they should be having contacts.

Oops I have totally messed up. I meant Delhi to Agra then back. But driver allowance is 200/300 I think. Anymore then it becomes a chore I suppose.

You list your location as Gurgoan. Your best bet (I do inter-city car+driver rentals nearly every year) is walk outside the confines/complex where you live, find the nearest car-service shack or three, ask them for a rate, compare the quotes. You'll find a +/- 1Re difference. Ask for their mobile number and be done with. It will run you between 9-12/km depending on the car, and/or driver option. From Gurgaon to Agra is 220km one way. The rates are garage to garage.
