KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Chandigarh

  • Book car hire in Chandigarh if you're planning on taking road trips around the region. For example, people often take the roughly three-hour road trip from Chandigarh to Shimla, at the foot of the Himalayas. You can also take a longer trip up to the ski-resort town of Manali in around six hours. A closer option is Solan, a great base for hikes around 1h 50min from Chandigarh. You can even drive from Chandigarh down to Delhi in just under four hours. Public transport between cities often takes longer than driving and can take up to twice as long, depending on when you travel. By booking car hire in Chandigarh, you can travel on your own schedule.
  • If you fly into Chandigarh, you'll arrive at Shaheed Bhagat Singh International Airport (IXC). However, you will likely need to take other transport into town to find companies offering car hire in Chandigarh. A taxi will take roughly 30 minutes, while the bus from the New Airport stop to the YPS/Sector 52/61 Stop takes a little over an hour. A taxi generally costs around ₹800, while the bus will cost about ₹110. Your Chandigarh car hire company may also offer transport from the airport if you book in advance.
  • Chandigarh has a few 'silence zones' where it is illegal to use your car horn or create any other noise pollution through loud music etc. These are usually in place around schools, universities and hospitals. While driving through the city, keep an eye out for lanes on the far side of the road separated by a yellow line. These lanes are reserved for commercial vehicles such as buses and taxis, so make sure you don't drive down them.
  • Avoid driving in Chandigarh between 8:30 and 10:30, and 17:00 and 20:00. This is by far the busiest time on the roads, particularly on routes from Chandigarh to Zirakpur. If you need to travel during these times, expect significant delays. If you plan on heading to the nearby town of Shimla or other places at the foot of the Himalayas, you may encounter snowfall during winter. Most companies offering car rental in Chandigarh don't have snow tyres, but as the snow generally only lasts a few days and is sparse, you likely won't need them. The most important thing to bear in mind is that you may need to take it slow, as the snow melts and the roads become slippery.
  • Book your car hire in Chandigarh at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Chandigarh are around 13% cheaper than other car types, on average

Smaller vehicles will also usually be cheaper, and their smaller fuel usage may be useful for budget travellers.

  • Where are the best places to park in Chandigarh?

    Finding parking spaces in Chandigarh generally isn't too difficult. There is a multi-level undercover car park in Chandigarh's city centre that can be handy for when you're exploring the city on foot. Parking is usually charged in four-hour blocks, and you can generally expect to pay between around ₹10 and ₹25 a day for the first four hours. For 24-hour parking, you'll usually pay between roughly ₹40 and ₹60. Some commercial car parks, for example, parking at malls, may be more expensive.
