You only need to do 2 things here: first, read up what we have laid out for you and then, avail the hottest, most affordable flight offers to Ahmedabad on Budget Airfares before booking your flights.
Where To Begin When Planning Your Ideal Trip To Ahmedabad?
How to get to and from the airport (AMD)?
Prepaid taxis are the best way to travel to and from the airport. For an approximately 10 km journey, you can expect to pay anything between Rs. 200 to Rs. 300.
How to get around the city?
If you want a cost – effective way to get around the city, we would tell you to opt for the buses run by the Ahmedabad Municipal Transport Service (AMTS). They can get you to almost every destination in the city and only set you back by a small fee. The buses operate on pay – per – ride basis and the minimum fee is Rs. 5 to the maximum fee being Rs. 30.
You can also go for the buses run by Ahmedabad Janmarg Limited (AJL), but you need to know that the fare is higher when compared to AMTS and the service is faster.
Additionally, autos and rickshaws are available everywhere in the city. However, they are more expensive than the buses but less when compared to taxis. If you want to go for personal travel vehicles, taxis are your best bet. They are the costliest and you should agree on the fare with the driver before getting in, or you will (most likely!) be overcharged.
What language(s) do you need for effective communication?
Though Gujrati is the local language spoken here, most of the people understand Hindi well. Working professionals along with those in the travel and tourism industry speak or understand English.
If you don’t want to learn a new language, you can always use a translation app to communicate effectively. Keep that in mind before getting affordable flight tickets to India from USA on Budget Airfares.
