Default Re: Driving rental car out of state - What taxes & fees to expect?

Friends,
Any response on my above query?

My plans have undergone a bit of a change. Now my itinerary looks like this - Bangalore >> Ooty >> Guruvayoor >> Palani >> Ooty >> Bangalore.

Need urgent info on KA to TN entry tax and TN to KL entry tax for a KA self drive vehicle (black plate with yellow text).

Have got to know that off late, KL has started imposing a super big entry tax for KA tourist vehicles and am mighty worried

Pls help me.

Depends on what car you are driving as there are caps based on seating capacity and engine cc. AFAIK, TN state entry tax should not exceed 600 for a 5 seater sedan. I'm not too sure about Kerala though. They might be charging more than any other South states, but I'm guessing it shouldn't exceed 1000.

You can call up your operator and ask them this question. They'll be able to help for sure with the exact numbers. Which company is this by the way?

The other thing to note is where exactly to stop and pay the tax. For TN, it is just after the Attibele toll booth, before you enter Hosur town. You will see a hoard of lorries parked on the road side. Again, not sure about Kerala as I don't know where you'll be entering Kerala.

I had taken self-drive rental car(Zoomcar) from Bangalore to TN and KL, had to pay around 500 for TN and around 150 for KL. This was in 2014.

KL has made change to the entry tax for KA tourist vehicles to levy one year tax (IIRC). Check with the rental operator. For instance, Zoomcar had a policy of refunding the AP entry tax (in case one had to pay), since the tax to be paid is for a year and it will be hefty, though the car can have multiple entries to AP for a year.

Thanks Bejoy! But then neither Zoomcar nor mychoize (the rental company that I have opted for) have been able to put light on the current situation prevailing for KL. Zoomcar still has the same policy for AN but nothing specifically clear in place for KL. Am still clueless.

Hi Folks

I'm planning to visit Horsely Hills followed by Lepakshi in a single day.
I'm renting a Zoomcar and since this is my first trip out of Karnataka, I was wondering if someone could brief me on what I'm supposed to do after entering Andhra Pradesh ?

Since I don't speak Telugu and going solo, I'm all the more worried about being taken for a ride (figuratively of course) at the RTO in AP. It's worth mentioning I've never really been to an RTO.

Any other tips/points to keep in mind would be of immense help to me

Thanks
Dhiwakar

After entering AP, you need to drive up to Penukonda RTO, which is on the Hyderabad highway itself, and pay tax.

Penukonda RTO Google maps location : https://www.google.co.in/maps/place/...41!4d77.610226

https://www.zoomcar.com/policy#interState

Zoomcar website mentions that 2670 is reimbursable amount for AP tax, which is valid for one year. Why don't you talk to zoom support and ask them to try and allot you a car, which has its AP tax already paid? Because, from what I've experienced; AP RTO will charge extra from you, and that amount will not be reimbursed by Zoom.

Only God knows what offence I committed by walking into RTO checkpost and paying up voluntarily. Although you get a receipt for the complete amount, I learnt the hard way that Zoom reimburses only 2650, and the rest is to be borne by the driver. Their website does not mention this

Default Re: Driving rental car out of state - What taxes & fees to expect?

I am planning a drive next week from Delhi to Haridwar & Rishikesh.

1. For folks in Delhi, I am going to rent a car, hence want to know where do I need to pay the Uttar Pradesh road tax. Google maps shows a road through Gazipur, over what looks like a flyover. Is there a UP RTO post somewhere here? Or is there a recommended route to enter UP where I can pay the road tax.
2. Hopefully the RTO post between UP and UK should be easy to spot as this is a National Highway. Again, any recommendations here

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi,
While most of the queries are related to the southern states, I did experience some of the northern states in the last few weeks. The most peculiar is J and K. When you enter Lakhanpur (entry point of J and K), you have to state if you are going to Kashmir or just Jammu region. And then based on the number of estimated days, is what you pay. They charge you 110/- per day for Jammu region.
The catch is, that when you are exiting the state, you have to again stop, on the other side of the road, find the run down office and show the receipt and close the transaction, by paying for any extra days you have stayed. If you forget to do it, or not do it becasue of not knowing about it, then the tax keeps accumulating, and the next time when someone takes the car in the state, he will be given the hefty bill.
They don't tell you that. They dont write it anywhere.
You are supposed to know about it. I did the mistake of existing the state, but thankfully returned back in the same trip after few days. Had to pay for all the days I was not even in the state. I have a feeling most of the states who have a daily tax will have this opening and closing date kind of an arrangment.

Watch out. With the GST coming I expect taxation to see a sea change, over the next three to six months.
