Hi Dimers,

I will be travelling from Mumbai on 28th 08.05am and will reach to Banglore on 29th 8.30am by Train

then I will leave from Banglore on 30th 6.30am and will reach to Trivandrum on 30th 8.00am ( by Flight – same day )

Now I have following queries.

1) People who live in Banglore can suggest me the place where should I book the hotel ( As I am a student / flexible with any type of hotel – no need of star ratings ) name / place / approx cost of the hotel would be of much help.

2) What mode of transportation should I choose ? I mean, I have done analysis that most of the hotels are far away ( min 30+ kms ) away from the airport. so, what should I do to minimize the transport cost.

As I have flight at 6.30am, can anyone suggest me a place from where I can get offline taxi / uber / tfs / ola etc. easily ?

General Question :
3) Why the airport charges are so high ( 700 Rs. ) for to and fro airport ? what is the reason behind it ? I have doubt. if anyone can help me it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

P.S. ( Joining TCS ILP at Trivandrum 31st Aug )

I’m not from Bangalore but stayed there for some time some years ago. My information may be outdated
1) I’m assuming your train arrives at Bangalore City Railway station (which is right next to Majestic bus stand)
If you’re a guy you should easily be able to get a room near Majestic bus stand at less than 500/day. In fact I think the Govt itself has a kind of mini hotel at the interstate bus stand. If you’re a girl, obviously look for a better hotel. You can find these online
2) The cheapest possible way to get to the airport are the BMTC airport service Volvo buses. If you’re next to Majestic bus stand getting such a bus shouldn’t be a problem, I guess

1. Since you will be coming at 29th 8.30am and leave by 30th 6.30am which means you have enough time to travel to airport (BIAL) for the morning 6:30am trip. Ideally you should be allocating 2-3 hrs for travel+checking e.t.c so even if you stay near railway station it doesn’t matter coz in the early morning there will be no traffic and maximum time it could take for a cab to reach airport would be 45-50 minutes.

2. Try Oyo rooms, they have huge discounts going on. I got a notification about Rs.1500 cashback you can different offers in DD itself. Don’t try to find a hotel that is very nearest to Airport it may get costlier. Mostly the hotel rooms by oyo are located in the prime areas and there should’nt be any problems in finding a cab nearby. For backup keep ola account with their CC200 you could save a little.

3. Mode of tranportation choose a cab always and give priority to uber, with the current offers running such as MERAEVENTSIND you would eaily have to pay anything less than 300 depending upon where you take the hotel room

4. Why the airport charges are so high ( 700 Rs. ) for to and fro airport ? TOLLS! Bloody tolls! We hate tolls!


Another reason for the high costs for travelling to the new airport is probably is because its situated outside the city. I hv heard some 60kms away!

in mid-city 30-35 kms but still flat rate of 700 for up to 30 kms are charged by cab operators

@master_mind Even the Volvo buses charge as much as about 220 rupees for rides to/from the airport. The main reason is the distance from the city as mentioned by some people. The second reason is the toll charges.

Oh and PM me as well. https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_wink.gif

Calling it the “new” airport even after so many years wouldn’t be right, bro. https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_wink.gif

Book this hotel.. Stayed in this hotel for 5hrs to catch next connecting flight, hotel is quite good as you’re single.. No need to worry.. near to airport… McDonald’s is near to this hotel…

Airport buses minimum charge is ₹180… Better book a cab.. Use freecharge uber code to get ₹400 off.. Don’t use referral code.. Just sign up and while booking cab use freecharge code

2) What mode of transportation should I choose ? I mean, I have done analysis that most of the hotels are far away ( min 30+ kms ) away from the airport. so, what should I do to minimize the transport cost. – There is no other option, just ask someone around and stay in minimal hotel

As I have flight at 6.30am, can anyone suggest me a place from where I can get offline taxi / uber / tfs / ola etc. easily ? – Offcourse OLA

General Question :
3) Why the airport charges are so high ( 700 Rs. ) for to and fro airport ? what is the reason behind it ? I have doubt. if anyone can help me it would be much appreciated. – In Bangalore airport charges are diff (includes toll charges)and normal travel charge is diff

Thanks.
