Driving tips

  • Driving is on the left side of the road and the steering wheel is on the right.

  • Keep a car charger for all mobiles handy in the car. Also keep signal boosters for hilly terrain, extra bulbs for headlights, torches, and batteries.

  • Pack light snacks if you wish to avoid eating oily food at the dhabas on the highways. Patna weather is known to be generally hot, so carry and drink lots of water too.

  • Do not rely on Google Maps for routes because it doesn't tell about the state of the road while suggesting the shortest route. Talk to locals, hotel staff, and especially truck drivers who will give you valuable information regarding which roads to take while travelling to particular places.

Car renting tips

  • Know your vehicular needs before hiring a car. Keep in mind space, comfort and budget etc before zeroing in on a car for rent.

  • Think about how long you want the car for. Always book it for a longer period lest you end up returning the car when you still need it.

  • Make sure you also identify and fix pick and drop timings beforehand to avoid long waiting hours and delays.

You must be of 18 years of age to drive and rent a car as well as have your International Driving Permit.
