Bangalore airport terminals extended. In the deparature lounge pleasing to see the extendend counters, more food joints, moving walkways, more spacious lounges.

Not sure if this is the right thread - Mods, kindly delete if so.

I need to pick up my relatives from BIAL today at 9pm. I was thinking of leaving from Whitefield area around 7:30pm today. I have been told that there might be alternate routes from Whitefield to Hebbal that could mean not going through KR Puram.

Could anyone please let me know. Also, open to any other suggestions.

And how bad it is from say, Pheonix Mall to Hebbal at 7:30?

How about the second option when you search for directions on google maps from Phoenix Marketcity to BIAL? The route that passes through Budigere road?

Ended up taking an Uber through KR Puram & Hebbal, turned out to be much better than what I expected or at least less worse

Has anyone used KIAL's parking facility for more than 3 days? I am going out of station for 4 days and the charges for 4 days are 900rs (300 for first day and 200 for the next three) which is a one way cab fare for me. And since I am traveling with family...even the bus fare will be about 880 for four of us. Also, let me know what do you think of it from safety point of view?

Very safe. I have parked at the KIAL airport's long term parking more than 30 times in the past 7 years, for periods ranging from 1 day to 8 days. No issues at all. Do ensure you note down the High mast light pole number or some landmark to remember where you have parked the car. It gets difficult to remember the parking spot after 4 days. Also try not to park below some tree, since the birds or sap from the tree can make some difficult to clean spots on the car after 4 days.

Another thing, you will be charged toll of Rs.115 when returning from the airport, this will be in addition to the Rs.900 you would spend on parking. Overall it is still worth it IMHO, since you would not need to depend on some unreliable cab company in the wee hours to take you to the airport. Go ahead.

Even I would recommend you to drive your own vehicle. And for the fourth day, you will be charged only for the number of hours you have parked. For example, if you leave the car at 5 AM on first day and collect it at 10 AM on 4th day, you will be charged 300 + 200 + 200 + parking fee for 5 hours.

That was my experience when I parked the car there in July 2014.

Completely forgot about this. And yeah, don't want to rely on any cab since this is a very important trip for me.

Thank you Rohan. I'll be probably dropping off my car at 4am on the first day and will pick it up at around 5pm on the fourth day.

Now all I have to do is to find the car cover, which I haven't used ever since I bought my car.

Please suggest which parking location in KIA should I use for short duration(2-3 hrs) parking? I'll see off my wife tomorrow and will be there at KIA till her flight departs. From the map, I see Parking 1 , parking2 etc. , hence confused.

I haven't been very selective here. For 2 to 3 Hours You can park in Lot 1 or 2. At the entrance the attender has always asked me whether I want to park "short time" or "long term".

You may pick a slot closer to the depature/arrival and walk lesser, that's all ☺

Book with Companies like CarzOnRent who will send you a safe, good driver and a good car.
But tell them you have no India phone else you'll be going quietly mad at the airport trying to figure out where your cab is.
The other option is to get one of your friends or relatives to help by arranging a cab.
The third option is to alight, pop across to the new Taj Hotel that has recently opened at the Airport, wash and brush up etc (by booking a room of course) and ask them to make arrangements for a car to take you where you want to go.

This latter method suggested, actually might help you, considering the long haul flight and the fact that most people landing after a long flight from the US straight into the chaos of India, get pretty frazzled with the long queues at immigration, the checks, the wait for the baggage etc etc. This gives you a chance for a wash and brush up and a chance to lie down and rest your back before another road journey...

Thanks a lot Mr Balan.I prefer the second option and accordingly talked (whatsapp)to my friend in BLR for help.He has agreed to arrange an Innova.
Meanwhile will check with carzonRent also.Will google the contact details
