Kerala Useful Information

Useful Information

Kerala has a balanced climate throughout the year and you do not experience extreme hot or cold.

We recommend that you carry woollen clothes if your itinerary includes Munnar or Thekkady as they are cold places.

When making flight reservations, you can book to Cochin (Kochi), Trivandrum or Calicut depending on your travel plan, and with the consultation of your travel agent.

When booking train tickets, if you are trying for Cochin, search Ernakulam which is same as Cochin. There is no railway station by the name of Cochin, and the code for Ernakulam is ERN or ERS.

Foreign passengers are required to obtain a VISA from the nearest Indian Consulate and remember to apply for the VISA at least 14 days before date of arrival and buy adequate travel insurance.

Safety is of priority importance and we recommend you to use seat belts.

For your safety, try to carry minimal gold ornaments. There are lots of ATMs at most of the places, thereby you can avoid carrying excess cash with you.

Always try to carry mineral water with you and avoid unsafe water from taps for drinking.

Smoking and consumption of alcohol is prohibited at public places and will be fined if caught.

Avoid hugging or kissing in public places as this attracts public attention, due to the orthodox attitude of people around you.

Nudity is not allowed in any public places.

Do carry your medicines and few tablets for fever, cold, head ache, vomiting etc.

If you have the habit of vomiting during traveling, inform your driver in advance. If you feel you are going to vomit during travel, ask your drive to stop the vehicle and do not vomit inside the vehicle or through the windows.

India's time zone is GMT/UTC +5.30 and international passengers can expect jet lag. We recommend that you get onto India s time zone before you leave your home town and try to eat and sleep on Indian time. This will help you get adjusted quickly and to start enjoying your trip.

It is advisable to take a package with breakfast only. If you opt for a package with lunch/dinner you would have already paid for the food and if you do not like the food from the hotel, then you will not have any other option than wasting your money.

It is not recommended to travel after 7PM as there will be fog on the road and is dangerous to drive during this time. Try to reach your hotel before 7PM so that you get enough time for relaxing and re-energizing yourself for the next day.
