What if I bring my own car for Road to Bangkok Trip

Road to Bangkok

Every Travel site online is buzzing about the Cross Border India Bangkok Road Trip.

Adventures Overland shares this passion hence as promised we’ve brought you a ONE STOP solution to end this furore.

Our Inbox has been flooded with innumerable mails since the Web Launch of the event ,September last week. Another major concern we hear is “What if i bring my own vehicle?” It’s a genuine one, as many would desire to drive down this epic journey in their own car.

Having done this trip in our own vehicle, we understand how difficult it is to any traveller to manage logistics and Time involved if you plan it on your own vehicle. We’ve done our homework to heels and used our practical experience to core to provide One Stop solution.Here we list down two evident factor why we recommend to use a Car Rental option.

Increased no of Days

If you plan to drive on your own car, keep 25- 30 days on hand. The Drive from Delhi to Imphal is roughly 2500 kms, takes minimum 4-5 days. Imphal to BKK is another 2500 kms which is covered in 10 days as per our itinerary. Likewise about 11-12 days for return. The Idea of Fly and Drive Solution was to address the worries of long duration.
So 10 days vs min 25 days

Cost difference

AO package is INR 3,25,000/person (Imphal to Bangkok) VS if you drive your own car this reduces to INR 2,40,000(excl of fuel).
However, the latter adds the return cost to it, 2 options
a) Transport the car back via sea to Indian port – Approx cost INR 1,00,000. Shipping duration -20-30 days
b) Drive Back via same route at additional cost of INR 1,10,000 in 7 nights from BKK to Imphal for hotel, Myanmar permits , guide, lead vehicle etc..

So this journey is not as easy as it sounds ! Adventures Overland has redeemed best of it’s contacts to get this one stop solution for the Adventure Enthusiasts.

It’s Challenging, Expensive YET WORTH doing in LIFETIME.

Dear sir
I already had an experience that I drived from chennai to Gangtok as well as chennai to Delhi and rajesthan. Also I had drived continuesly non stop drive up to 1000km at many times with out giving a break. So this Bangkok tour this itenary is very long, I want to take my own car to Bangkok as well as I want to go to Malaysia and Singapore. So my plan is to drive per day 1000kms sight seeing I want to visit mayanmar and then to Bangkok and pattaya then I want to proceed to Malaysia and then to Singapore. My journey days is 25days including return. Return also by my car itself. I will book by my own hotel accommodations and fuel and sightseeing also I will do by my own. Just I need is to do yourself the visa”s and permit to enter my car to other countries i.e. Burma, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. I need the only legal formalities. I will pay the amount as your wish for these.

Thank you
Expecting your reply soon

With regards
