travelling domestic in india

We are travelling to india early next year, we want to do bit of sight seeing around Mumbai and Goa, then onto Delhi before visiting the family, do you think it is better to book our flights Goa to Delhi overseas or would it be easier in India, also any thoughts on where to stay.

If you are not doing this via a travel agent, then Goa-Delhi would need to be booked in India, because I think, at the moment, domestic airlines aren't accepting international credit cards (there was some sort of fraud). Maybe things will change in a couple of months.

If you are using a travel agent, it makes sense to do all the bookings before you come to India.

Kingfisher still accepts, the last time I checked. And they fly to Goa.

We travelled round India last December and booked all our flights from the Uk except we had a bit of a problem with one as the site wouldnt work and I ended up speaking to their 24/7 booking which turned out to be a mobile numer so incurred extra cost. When we returned from Goa we found that Airdecccan flight was delayed and were able to get a refund and book with Kingfisher and the price was no different to prices we had seen on the net. Kingfisher is a really good line although marginally more expensive but you get the service. We flew with Goair and Spicejet and found them good as well as Jet Air who are the most expensive ones that we used but they were the only ones that flew from Udaipur. You can only book the tickets a few months before flying with some of them except for Kingfisher.

I guess it would be better to let your travel agent book tickets for you and let him include that in overall pricing..to avoid any credit card hassles..

Also for your stay again that depends on what budget you are traveling. Let us know more about budget then we can suggest some hotels in that range..
