With snow-capped peaks and tropical beaches, vibrant ancient festivals and a thriving Bollywood movie industry, the dazzlingly diverse country of India is among the most varied and unforgettable countries on the planet.

The dizzying melting pot of Delhi, the quiet canal-lined streets of ancient Kochi and the magnificent Taj Mahal, a World Heritage Site, are just three highlights that travellers have visited for centuries. Countless other local sights are just as captivating to anyone who ventures just off the tourist trail.

Worry-free and Also Green

When faced with the vast distances to cover in India and so many worthwhile places to explore, however, you may find that planning travel in India can be overwhelming. Fortunately, one local company can take all the hassle out of getting around in India – helping travellers arrange transport that is comfortable and worry-free. Now they can do it in an environmentally responsible manner as well.

Since 1991, the experts at SS Travels have always used their first-hand local knowledge to bring a high level of luxury service to ground transportation in India. But the SS Travel quality promise hit a new high when they joined the growing ranks of local partners part of a new, global, environmentally friendly transfer service called Green Path Transfers. In keeping with the Green Path Transfers 100%-carbon-offset policy, SS Travels is poised to deliver reliable transfers to ever greater numbers of passengers keen to go green.

“It’s great to see a company in India offering such unparalleled service, whilst at the same time having a strong interest and focus on being eco-friendly,” commented Adrian Cordiner, CEO of Green Path Transfers.

Launched with just one single car, SS Travels has since grown into a far-reaching transfer-service provider with over 600 modern, stylish and fuel-efficient vehicles.

For visitors with a little time to spare, SS Travel drivers are fonts of knowledge about interesting sights easily accessible by vehicle. For instance, Mr. Kumar suggests that anyone arriving in Delhi should not skip a visit to Agra, site of the monumental white-marbled Taj Mahal, or Shimla with its beautiful old colonial buildings. Further afield, another excellent stopover is the ruined royal palace that towers over the mountain town of Leh.

If you’ve got even more time, Mr. Kumar recommends a visit to Ooty, a beautiful hill station in the Blue Mountains close to Bangalore; the Kabini River for its incredible wildlife viewing and frequent herds of elephants; and the lovely town Alleppey, which is known as the Venice of the East and is “all about house boats and beautiful trees in and around the backwaters.”
