We have in-house experts to book air-tickets for domestic or International travel. Air travel in India is generally painless and uncomplicated for internal flights, although it can sometimes be a bit of a pain when waiting for internal transport between terminals if you are transferring from an international flight to an internal one, for instance.
They won’t have such a sense of urgency to get you there, so this can be stressful for some westerners! (Inevitably, you will get there, but it can be slow. You could get a taxi or auto-rickshaw to the other terminal if you were extra worried or in a rush – this usually won’t cost more than 250 rupees / £3).
There are a number of budget airlines available in India these days, so it’s possible to get some reasonably priced seats on some routes. They are CONSIDERABLY faster, as you may imagine, than going by any other method (compare travel from Nagpur to Mumbai: by train, 16 hours; by air, 1.15 hours).
Also note that your baggage allowance may be slightly less on internal flights.
On a recent trip, a guest was allowed 30Kg from the UK (which she used fully), but her internal flight, on a different airline, allowed 20Kg. As luck had it, they didn’t notice or didn’t mind and it all went smoothly, but it could be a problem! In any case, we ask that our pilgrims travel lightly, as much as possible, to make the journey easier. A 30Kg suitcase might not be the easiest of things to transport around!
