Independent India travel

Build your own independent India trip

India is a country of diversity and offers a combination of majestic forts, spiritual temples, golden beaches and vast deserts, not to mention holy cows and of course camels. The cities retain the grandeur of their colonial past with their narrow alleyways coming alive with rickshaws and the air is thick with the smell of exotic spices and tempting aromas. If you travel further afield on your independent India travels, you can view the religious ceremonies on the Ganges in Varanasi and experience the sweeping sands of the desert in Jaisalmer. 

Our independent India travel plans give you the freedom to travel India in your own way, staying in Mughal palaces, traditional desert clay huts or Keralan rice barges, travelling by private car or train. Our passionate independent India travel specialists are here to help create and build your unique journey through India.

Experience India at your own pace

With India Online, you can create your own independent India travel itinerary by choosing from our range of independent India tours (modules). These India travel modules last between 2 and 6 days and are put together by our team of independent India travel specialists. Our specialists have a lot of travel experience, know where to find interesting spots and have a keen eye for small-scale, authentic, comfortable accommodation.  You can choose from over 20 different modules, including classic highlights such as the Taj Mahal and holy Varanasi, as well as camel treks, tiger safaris, hidden beach paradises, and Himalayan homestays. 

We also offer suggested independent India itineraries which are combinations of our independent India travel modules and allow you to experience India for 2, 3 or more weeks. In the suggested itineraries, we take a selection of our independent India travel modules that fit well togetherand then link them with connecting transportation and accommodation if needed.

Spend less time figuring out how to travel from A to B and let us arrange your transport while in India. We can also arrange a comfortable arrival into India with our Starter Packs which include an airport pick-up and a hotel stay during your first few nights in India.
