If you plan to visit Delhi from Dehradun or Chandigarh, the best way to travel is via road for ease and fun. Delhi is the metropolitan capital of India. As an ancient city, Old Delhi has many historical monuments and cultural sites which are worth visiting as a staycation on a weekend getaway or a short visit from Dehradun.
The growing regions of Gurgaon and Noida – IT bases of North India are well connected by road. New-Delhi also has an entirely modern lifestyle, and one can choose from several tour packages with Savaari.com, the largest aggregator of cabs and taxi-services with its presence in 98+ cities and 265 million kilometres plus logged satisfied customer trips in 12 years of service.
Catering to both time-frames and budget, it is strongly recommended to use the taxi service in Dehradun and book your Dehradun to Delhi round trip cabs on the online platform of Savaari. The friendly and courteous drivers, affordable, transparent rates, timely-pickup and a choice of cars depending on the number of people and the luggage you carry makes it an ideal getaway from self-driving!
A huge bonus is the 20% discount costing Rs 4948 for the six h 3 min 256.8 km journey, and the fact that the Delhi tour package costs offered by car rental companies are usually more affordable than the Delhi tourist taxi rates.
You can also opt for one-way drops (approximately Rs 2000/-) between these destinations and suffer no cancellation fees if you decide not to travel. Similarly from Chandigarh to Delhi taxi prices at Saavari are very reasonable for the 42 min journey covering about 257 km.
