Tips for finding the best travel package to Kerala, for your budget

By Rashmi Deshpande Subscribe to RSS | December 8th 2011 | Views:

Kerala, also known as ‘God’s own country’, is the perfect holiday destination for a honeymoon, a family vacation or even an adventure by yourself. We look at how to select a tour package that meets your interests and also fits your budget.

Step 1: Decide on your tour type

Kerala offers everything from lush green backwaters and sparkling golden beaches to spotting elephants and tigers, to unwinding with an Ayurvedic spa treatment. This has led to a wide range of tour packages being offered.

The most popular Kerala tours offered today are:

• Honeymoon

• Backwaters

• Ayurveda

• Beach

• Houseboat

• Wildlife

• Hill station

Step 2: Decide on your holiday type

Once you have selected your tour type, decide on your holiday vision. If you want a luxury vacation, look for travel packages that offer three star and higher hotels and resorts. Their services would include spacious rooms, English-proficient concierges, airport/railway station pick-up and drops and usually an attached kitchenette which is useful if you don’t want to eat out all the time.

If you want a luxury vacation, you can also choose to explore Kerala on a houseboat rather than a canoe. These are perfect for honeymooners, those with limited time or those interested in touring the backwaters in comfort. Kerala houseboats are designed like a rice barge and let you enjoy the luxury of a private floating home.

A canoe trip on the other hand is perfect for all types of tourists, regardless of timescales and budgets. This is one of the best ways to explore the smaller waterways and villages and experience traditional life, but is not as comfortable as a houseboat.

If you’re on a tight budget, look for a package that provides just the basic amenities such as a bed, television and attached bathroom. This makes sense if you don’t plan on spending much time indoors. You could also save on your cost by arriving at Kerala yourself, and starting your package tour on arrival.

Another way to cut down on costs would be by opting to discover Kerala via a local ferry. Great for adventurous souls or those on a budget, a local ferry shows you the same sights as a Kerala Houseboat, but in a more inexpensive, noisy and crowded manner. Okay for short trips, a local ferry can get intrusive and cumbersome during long journeys.

Step 3: Select your tour package

Once you have decided on your tour and holiday type, it is just a question of finding a package that combines the two. The best way to get what you want for your budget is to approach a qualified tour company, lay down your expectations and design a tour that caters to your needs. There are a range of kerala tour packages available in the market, It is very important that you select the right one based on your needs and expectations.

Keep in mind that a good vacation also requires a certain standard of quality. If you want to enjoy your travel to Kerala to the fullest, it is important to ensure that you select a reputable tour company, even if it means paying that little bit extra.
