As updated early, the road (Tiruvallur - Tiruthani - Tirupathi) is good except a small diversion after Tiruvallur (due to bridge construction).There are two toll booths and they charge (Rs 15 and Rs 60) for a single journey. Buy return toll ticket if you have planned to come within 24 hours (Rs 20 and Rs 90).

For onward journey (alipiri to tirumala) the minimum driving time is 28 min and it is 40 minutes minimum for the return journey between tirumala and alipiri.

Hello all,

Bumping an old thread. I plan to travel to Tirupati from Chennai on the 18th. Wanted to know if there is a entry tax to be paid for self drive rental cars as well or is it only for yellow plated cars.

Thanks

Only taxis (yellow board) need to pay permit fee/road tax, nothing for private vehicles.

Rental cars are like taxis for the sake of permits so yes you will need to stop near the checkpost and pay the fee.
