Discovering top options for car rental and self-drive cars in Bangalore

1. Uber & Ola

These are two different app-based car rental options in Bangalore. Why do we say that? Well, other than your regular taxi conveniences offered by these two, Uber also offers UberHIRE for need-based car rentals and so does Ola with their Ola Outstation. More details can be found on the app.

Tip: If you are in the city for the first time and don’t know the local language, request for an English-speaking driver. Also, you may use digital wallets to make a quick booking.

Offer for Ola – Use the refferal code CG4W9F to get Rs.50 while registering for OLA.


2. ZoomCar & Vroom Drive

Both these names are quite popular with people who prefer self-drive cars in Bangalore. It goes like this – sign up with the app/ site, book a car (you may choose w/ or w/o fuel), request door delivery or a nearby pickup location, take the ride and return. Security fee (refundable) is a must in booking a self-drive car, hence be prepared for a charge on your card.
