Phone Numbers of Reliable Cab Drivers in India You Should Save Now

Having been a part of the travel writing community for over a decade now, it is no surprise that I’ve met hundreds of other like-minded travellers, who like me, have had to take long duration cabs as a solo traveller. Most of us share the same woes, same thrills and same opinions about what travel means to us. For the women, safety is always a key consideration and a common refrain sums up a universal issue – “If I get a good cab guy, the trip is a successful one!” Many of us have heartening stories from the road, where the person driving us has gone out of his way to help, make us feel protected and extended support, more than just the transactional relationship of being a driver. I don’t mean to alienate the men – I’m sure the same holds true for them too.
 

 

 As a payback to the travel community, here’s a post with contact details of these wonderful drivers. Hopefully, many of you will be able to book them with confidence since they are referred after personal experience and also share their contact details further to more travellers, and steer business towards them.I have travelled with the below drivers/ companies at ominous hours, middle of jungles and less than comfortable hours. These folks have gone out of their to take me to the best Theyyam performances, ensuring that I reach safely to my destination at an odd hour, shared cups of tea, meals and their stories. All in all, I’ve felt very safe with them and hopefully, this will help you guys too.Additionally, there are numbers sourced from other travellers as well. I want to thank all of you who’ve contributed towards this list. We started this as discussion on the TravelIST community  and since, many of the other members have used these contacts for their travels. Please do keep spreading this list and write to me to add to it.Happy Travels!
