Kochi Driving Information

Driving is on the left side of the road.

All Cochin Airport rental cars are automatic transmission.

Your local drivers' licence is required.

An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).

Kochi Driving Stress Level: 7/10

Unless you are into adventure seeking, self drive in Kochi is not recommended as driving etiquette is almost non-existent.


Cochin Airport Car Rental Recommendations

IHateTaxis.com has a mixed recommendation on a Cochin Airport car rental

Car rental is not so popular among foreign visitors. Many car rental companies refuse to provide self-drive cars to Westerners. Normally a bank guarantee letter or security cheque/traveller's cheque to the value of the car or a passport are taken as security for renting the car. No security deposit is needed if the car is chauffeur-driven.
