Best time for renting a car for Hooghly ​​to Howrah

When renting a car for Hooghly ​to Howrah, its best to book atleast 1-2 weeks ahead so you can get the best prices for a quality service.

Things to look for when booking an outstation cab from Hooghly to Howrah ​​or any outstation route

  1. Ensure that a commercial taxi is being provided. Only commercial vehicles can legally transport passengers from one city to another. Commercial passenger vehicles have yellow colored license plates and are required to have the necessary transport permits.
  2. Find if the route you will travel on has tolls. If yes, are tolls included in your booking quote
  3. When you are crossing state boundaries, state taxes are due. Preferably get a quotation with state taxes included else you are at the risk of being scammed again. Most taxi operators will pay for monthly or annual state tax on routes that they are commonly serving. By getting an inclusive quote, you are getting this benefit passed on to you. By getting a quote where taxes are excluded, you are going to have to pay the taxi operator and will most likely not get a receipt for the same
  4. Price is great but service is what matters. So try to focus on service at a reasonable price. When you go for the cheapest, you will ending up getting what you pay for.

Little about Howrah

Much like the twin cities that have sprouted around most metropolitans in India, Howrah is Kolkata’s twin city in the Indian state of West Bengal. However, what makes Howrah different, despite being an industrial town is the sheer romance that’s in the city’s air and mood. Howrah is connected to Kolkata by four bridges namely Vivekananda, Vidyasagar, the most popular Howrah and Nivedita. A walk along any one of these bridges is amazing and the views one can catch of the river Ganga, the dhows and ships floating in it are breath taking. The better aspect lies in the fact that each of these bridges are unique in their own ways. The Vidyasagar bridge or setu is a cable stayed bridge which offers grandeur and height whereas the Howrah Bridge with its complicated network design is a cantilever bridge. The Botanical gardens or Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanic Garden is one of the most captivatinh tourist spot of Howrah. Located in Shibpur, the garden sprawls over 109 hectares and nestles more than 12,000 species of plants. The Great Banyan tree is believed to be the largest most spread out Banyan Tree in the world with its canopy covering various localities. The Santragchhi Jheel or lake is home to many migratory birds and is a photographers dream come true. Howrah Bridge with its mesmerising architecture is another captivating sight. It connects Howrah and Kolkata and runs over River Hoogly. Vidyasagar Setu or the second Hoogly Bridge also links these two cities. Avani Riverside Mall is situated by the river Hoogly and the hub of entertainment for residents of Howrah.
