Important information about Chennai car hire

Most car companies that offer car hire in Chennai do allow you to cross from one state to another in a Chennai car hire vehicle. You do, however, need to obtain written permission from the agent for car hire in Chennai. The permission you receive is a specific type of official permit called a Carnet and will cost a fee based on the value of the vehicle. This permit plus a valid visa are the documents needed to cross into different countries, such as Bangladesh and Pakistan.

You will need a credit card to make a payment for your hire vehicle when picking up your hire car. Other acceptable methods of payment that are sometimes suitable for the security deposit of your car hire agreement are debit cards and internet banking. The security deposit amount is held on the valid card at pick up of the car and is refunded immediately after the return of the car, as soon as the inspection of the car is passed and all charges have been calculated and paid for. Remember that you will be charged a rate for GST taxes, which is enforced by the government law in Chennai. To pay for your total hire car agreement, you are welcome to use a credit card or debit card. Some car hire companies will allow you to make this payment with cash, but it's best to check beforehand whether the specific company your hire car has been booked through allows cash payments or not.

In Chennai, you will find the driving style to be "aggressive"; however, it isn't at all, it is just unusual for drivers from outside of India to understand that it is lefthand/righthand drive, which looks confusing and unorganised in the beginning. Be extra alert when driving in Chennai, as animals, children and pedestrians are commonly walking around the roads, and it is illegal to harm or remove an animal that is in the street. It is considered illegal to drive without a copy of your valid insurance policy in Chennai, so make sure you have that document in the car when you pick it up from the car hire company. The age for driving in Chennai is 18 years old; so when getting a hire car, make sure that if you are booking for an additional driver, the driver must be 18 years or older. Please be sure to carry a valid driving permit with you at all times; if you are pulled over and inspected by a traffic officer, you will be heavily fined if you can not present a valid driver's permit. It is also considered illegal to drive a vehicle without a valid registration document, which could also be requested by a traffic officer if you are stopped for inspection. The maximum speed limit on all roads in Chennai is 70 km/h (43 mph).

Each car hire company offering any class of vehicle, from cheap car rentals in Chennai to car hire companies that offer more luxury vehicles, will need international drivers to have an international driver's permit. This is a mandatory requirement for all international drivers. You will need to produce your valid homeland ID card, preferably displaying a current photograph of the intended driver of the hired vehicle.
