Gives us a way to move around in goa as well, and not on 2 rented wheels either. You will know the value of that when we run outta smokes n cokes at 2 o clock in the night:P
Attaboy Anurag ! you go after my heart. The main fun of the trip lies in the drive. And, knowing all our professions, who's in a hurry to reach goa?

Btw, add another Rs.1.5K/Cab for Airport-Hotel-Airport since North Goa is a good 45kms away ( one-way).

Edit : Just saw Theo's post. I have done a drive to goa about 4-5 times in the last 3 years and the cost per person ( in a diesel car) never exceeds more than Rs.1300/Person ( 4 in a car) for a 2000kms drive ( including 400kms in-city travel). Basically, you save over Rs.2K per person and it can be blown on Ayurvedic Massage.....LOL

Default flying to Goa

Aha, the unexpected twist to the drive meet at Goa.

In fact I have been toying with the idea of flying into Goa ever since I came across the Jet Konnet offer on Yatra.com, mainly because it saves a lot of time and it is safer than driving 1600 KM on highways. But I have not made up my mind on that so far because I did not want to miss the fun of long drives. So, I am still undecided.

Though the air fare seems less, it will not be economical at all!
Adding to this, there are lots of hidden costs involved like cab to & fro to HIAL, bikes/car rentals in Goa, cab to & fro to Goa Airport.

No more discussions on the mode of travel please.

Let's DRIVE to Goa! Period.

If economics are to be talked, car pooling is the way to go plus the fun of long drive(this is a drive meet, hello!!!!).

Air travel is for the guys like me, who work their $$$ off 6 or 7 days a week !!! and don't take leaves of 2 days continuously so as to not make their bosses unhappy. :(

In my case, I am planning to take a day and a half as leave(friday - half day and saturday full day). I intend to take the flight on friday afternoon and join you guys. If there is any place left for me in any cars, I can join you guys in the return journey else, I will take the return ticket(this can be decided later).

Raj.

This drive is planned as part of the Goa Monsoon meet (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...l-monsoon.html (Forecast suggests Goa meet as well as Monsoon.))
Bangy, Pune & Mumbai guys are also supposed to turn up!

Some airports also charge UDF--which could increase the fare much more.
I'd anyday prefer to drive.

Default Tentative

I will remain in the tentaive list till the last minute. The kiddo has not yet got his School Diary which sets out dates of tests, exams etc. Arriving late night on Sunday too is not a good idea as he has to be packed off to school at least on Monday. One idea I am toying with is to hitch a ride on the way out and fly back or vice-versa.

Cheers,

Salam Walekum Abbas bhai, your more than welcome

Added you in tentative list. Our dates are confirmed, so as soon as its decided from your end, you need to book the flight tickets ASAP

@Folks, its alarming to see the tentative list is growing rapidly whereas the confirmed list is not. Can we reverse this situation? LOL !!!

Glad to see much participation for the DRIVE, well at least on the discussion. Redcircle, McLaren, Abbas it would be great if all of you can make it. Ravveendrra, echo Avi's sentiment, you gotta be there man, mode don't matter.

How about adding ASHISHPALLOD, guess he is quite a regular on the Hyd threads and this is the opportunity for us to meet him.
