Best Time for Kerala Tour Package

The best time for a Kerala Tour Package with Relax Getaways Pvt. Ltd. is during the winter season, spanning from September to March. This period marks the peak tourism season in Kerala due to the pleasant weather, making it ideal for exploring the diverse landscapes, engaging in outdoor activities, and participating in cultural events.

  • September to November: These months mark the post-monsoon season in Kerala, offering a fresh and green environment, perfect for sightseeing and outdoor activities. The weather is comfortably cool, and the rejuvenated backwaters and hill stations are at their picturesque best. This time is excellent for those looking to enjoy the natural beauty of Kerala without the peak season crowds.

  • December to February: Considered the prime tourist season, these months offer the most agreeable weather conditions for travel in Kerala. With minimal rainfall and cool temperatures, it's the perfect time for beach visits, backwater tours, wildlife safaris, and exploring the cultural heritage of the state. The famous Cochin Carnival in December and the Grand Kerala Shopping Festival are significant attractions.

  • March: The beginning of summer in Kerala, March still retains some of the coolness, making it a good time to visit before the heat sets in. It’s an opportune time for those looking to explore Kerala's outdoor attractions, such as the tea gardens in Munnar, the wildlife sanctuaries, and the tranquil backwaters, with slightly fewer tourists.

While Kerala's tropical climate allows for year-round travel, the monsoon season from June to August presents a different experience. The landscape turns intensely green, and the rains bring out the romantic and mystical side of Kerala. Monsoon tourism is gaining popularity for Ayurvedic treatments and for those who enjoy the rainy ambiance, although it might not be suitable for all outdoor activities.

Choosing the best time for your Kerala Tour Package ultimately depends on your preferences for weather, crowd levels, and the type of experiences you wish to have. Relax Getaways Pvt. Ltd. ensures a memorable and comfortable journey irrespective of the season, with each offering a unique charm and set of attractions that cater to a wide range of interests.

Important notes on Kerala Tour Package

When planning your journey with the Kerala Tour Package offered by Relax Getaways Pvt. Ltd., there are several important notes to keep in mind to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience. These tips will help you prepare for your trip and make the most of your time in "God's Own Country."

  • Travel Documents: Ensure all your travel documents, including your passport, visa (if required), and travel insurance, are up-to-date. India requires a visa for most foreign nationals, so plan this well in advance of your trip.

  • Health and Safety: Given the tropical climate of Kerala, it's advisable to carry mosquito repellent, sunscreen, and any necessary medications. While Kerala is known for its safety, always practice general safety precautions, especially in crowded places.

  • Climate and Clothing: Kerala has a tropical climate, so lightweight and breathable clothing is recommended. However, for hill stations like Munnar, carrying some warm clothing is advisable due to cooler temperatures, especially in the evenings and early mornings.

  • Cultural Sensitivity: Kerala is rich in cultural heritage. When visiting temples or religious sites, dress modestly and follow local customs, such as removing shoes before entering.

  • Local Cuisine: Don't miss out on trying the local cuisine, which is known for its variety and flavours. Kerala's specialties include seafood, coconut-based curries, and vegetarian dishes. Street food is also a must-try but choose clean and reputable vendors.

  • Stay Hydrated: The weather can be hot and humid, especially outside the winter months. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, and always carry a bottle of water with you during sightseeing.

  • Cash and Currency: While major credit cards are accepted in hotels and larger shops, carrying some local currency (Indian rupees) is essential for smaller purchases, tips, and in areas where digital transactions are not common.

  • Language: Malayalam is the local language, but English is widely understood in tourist areas, hotels, and by service providers. Learning a few basic phrases in Malayalam can enhance your interaction with locals.

  • Connectivity: Mobile and internet connectivity are generally good in urban areas and tourist spots but can be sporadic in remote locations. Consider purchasing a local SIM card for better coverage and rates.

  • Ecotourism and Sustainability: Kerala is known for its efforts in ecotourism. Respect the environment by minimising your footprint: dispose of waste properly, use water sparingly, and avoid plastic usage where possible.

  • Booking and Cancellation Policy: Understand the booking and cancellation policy of Relax Getaways Pvt. Ltd. before finalising your Kerala tour package. It's important to know the flexibility and terms, especially in light of unforeseen circumstances or changes in travel plans.

Here’s what you need to know about navigating through "God's Own Country."

Flights to Kerala

  • Main Airports: Kerala is served by four international airports - Cochin International Airport (COK) in Kochi, Trivandrum International Airport (TRV) in Thiruvananthapuram, Calicut International Airport (CCJ) in Kozhikode, and Kannur International Airport (CNN) in Kannur. These airports connect Kerala with major cities in India and international destinations.

  • Choosing Your Airport: Your entry point should be based on your itinerary. Cochin is centrally located and convenient for most tour packages, but arriving in Thiruvananthapuram might be better for tours focusing on the southern part of Kerala.

Domestic Transportation within Kerala

  • Private Vehicle: The most comfortable and flexible option provided in the Kerala Tour Package is a private vehicle with a driver. This allows for personalized travel and the freedom to explore at your own pace.

  • Trains: Kerala has an extensive rail network connecting major towns and tourist destinations. Train travel can be a scenic and authentic way to see the countryside, though it's generally used for longer distances between cities.

  • Houseboats: In places like Alleppey and Kumarakom, houseboats offer a unique and leisurely way to travel through the backwaters, providing both transportation and accommodation.

  • Tuk-Tuks and Taxis: For short distances within cities or towns, tuk-tuks (auto-rickshaws) and taxis are readily available. They're convenient for quick trips or when your private vehicle isn't available.

Tips for Flight and Transportation Planning

  • Check for Offers: Airlines often have offers for early bookings or special fares for tourists. Keep an eye out for these deals.

Tipping for Kerala Tour Package

Tipping is a common practice in India, serving as a gesture of appreciation for good service. For travelers enjoying the Kerala Tour Package with Relax Getaways Pvt. Ltd., understanding the norms around tipping can enhance your travel experience, ensuring you adequately reward the efforts of those who make your trip memorable. Here's a guide to tipping etiquette in Kerala.

General Tipping Guidelines

  • Drivers and Guides: For the dedicated services of your driver or tour guide, a tip of INR 300 to INR 500 per day is considered generous. If they've gone above and beyond in making your trip special, you may consider tipping more.

  • Hotel Staff: For bellboys or porters, a tip of INR 50 to INR 100 per bag is customary. Housekeeping staff can be tipped INR 200 to INR 300 at the end of your stay, depending on the cleanliness and comfort maintained in your room.

  • Restaurants: Many higher-end restaurants may include a service charge (typically 10%) in the bill. If this charge isn't included, tipping 10% of the bill amount is appreciated for good service. In smaller eateries or for street food vendors, tipping isn't expected, but a small gesture of rounding up the bill or leaving small change can be a nice way to show appreciation.

  • Spa Services: For massages or spa treatments, a tip of 10% to 15% of the service cost is appreciated if you're satisfied with the service.

Considerations for Tipping

  • Quality of Service: Tipping should reflect the quality of service received. Feel free to adjust the amount based on your level of satisfaction.

  • Cultural Sensitivity: While tipping is appreciated, it's also important to do so discreetly and respectfully.

  • Small Change: Keeping small denominations of Indian currency is handy for tipping and small purchases. It's often challenging to break large notes, especially in more rural areas.

  • Voluntary Basis: Remember, tipping is entirely at your discretion and should be seen as a token of appreciation for exceptional service, not an obligation.

Tipping on Group Tours

  • Collective Tipping: In group settings, it might be easier to collect a communal tip from all group members to be distributed among the driver, guides, and other service providers. This ensures everyone receives a fair share and simplifies the process for travelers.

Communicating with Your Tour Operator

  • Guidance: Relax Getaways Pvt. Ltd. can offer advice on appropriate tipping amounts for different services during your Kerala tour. Don't hesitate to ask your tour representative for recommendations based on current practices.

Understanding and adhering to local tipping practices not only contributes to a positive travel experience but also supports the individuals who work hard to make your Kerala Tour Package enjoyable. Tipping is a way to express gratitude for the hospitality and service provided, fostering a culture of respect and appreciation.
