- The people of North Bengal are also a varied lot. The tea gardens brought in Tribals from Bengal and Bihar. The hill stations attracted people from neighboring Nepal, and the partition of 1947 brought in Hordes of Bengalis from Bangladesh.
- The Hills, the jungles and the serene beauty of undulating tea gardens spread to the horizon.

Renting a car in North Bengal and Sikkim is slightly more complicated than you might first imagine. So please spend five minutes reading this page, might save a lot of your time later.
Throughout North Bengal you can hire a vehicle on disposal basis except in Darjeeling town. Disposal basis means the vehicle will stay with you for the entire tour and go wherever you want to go. The bill will depend on three things, what make of vehicle you hire, how much you travel and when you are travelling.
Make of Vehicle - Normally you can either higher luxury MUV (Innova, Scorpio, Mobilio, Ertiga, Xylo), Standard MUV (Sumo, Max etc.) or a hatchback (Indica, Figo, Swift, WagonR). We assure you a particular vehicle class but don’t assure you the exact vehicle make in advance.
Distance Travelled – Our vehicles comes with inclusive cost of 100 kms travel per day. Additional travel is billed extra. If you want yourself to be dropped at a particular point, please calculate the return journey of the vehicle back to its garage in Siliguri as well to find the travel cost.
Travel Date – We have some high seasons such as April – June period, Diwali, Chrismas, Holi and other festival periods. During these periods there is severe shortage of vehicles and the cost is higher.
Given the above complications, you are better off to ask our executives about the cost of your tour. However the following rate chart may give you some indication of the cost. Note these are low season rates, High season rates will be more.
Car tariff on Disposal / Daily basis
|Car Type||Daily Charge||Max capacity||Charge over 100 km per day|
|Lusury MUV||Rs. 3000||7 persons||Rs. 10 / km|
|Standard MUV||Rs. 2500||8 persons||Rs. 10 / km|
|Hatchbacks||Rs. 2300||4 persons||Rs. 8 / km|
In Darjeeling town as well as in most of Sikkim vehicles are available only on drop basis, this means that each service is billed separately. Again the rates vary based on vehicle make, distance travelled and time of travel. Hence we recommend getting the rates from our travel experts. Some indicative costs are given below for Low season tours.

|Car Type||Lusury MUV||Lusury MUV||Hatchbacks|
|NJP or Bagdogra to Gangtok or return||Rs. 4000||Rs. 3500||Rs. 3300|
