Airline Ticketing Services
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 wonĂ˘€™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 Ă˘€“ this usually wonĂ˘€™t cost more than 250 rupees / Ă‚ÂŁ3).
There are a number of budget airlines available in India these days, so itĂ˘€™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 didnĂ˘€™t notice or didnĂ˘€™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!
