Self Drive Car Rental in Srinagar

Are you planning a Kashmir trip and looking for a self drive car rental in Srinagar? Or maybe you are planning a trip to Ladakh and were thinking of renting self drive cars from Srinagar to Leh. If the answer to the question is a yes, the information in the post below may be of help.

The first and most important thing to know is that there are not a lot of options for renting a self-drive car in Srinagar. There was not even a motorcycle rental agency there until a few years ago actually. All of this is slowly changing but as of now, options are limited.

In the post below, I will provide details on how you can rent a self drive car in Srinagar. For any other details about visiting Kashmir, like how to reach, where to stay, what to see, and itinerary planning, please take a look at How to Plan a Trip to Kashmir – A Complete Travel Guide.

Things to Keep in Mind

  • The Vehicle would be available, subject to the actual dates of your itinerary.
  • The rider must provide a valid driver’s license and ID proof with a passport-size photograph!!
  • The booking amount is nonrefundable in case of cancellation.
  • Foreigners must have an international driving license to hire a Motorcycle
  • Only Postpaid Sims Work in the J&K Region, kindly carry one postpaid sim for smooth communications (Preferably Bsnl, Jio, and Airtel)

What are the documents required while renting the Car?

Your driving license is a must and pretty much the only document you will need to submit. It works both as Identity proof and address proof as well. Someone asked me in an email if I have to submit the original and the answer to that is no.

You are required to carry your DL with you during the trip and just need to submit a photocopy at the place you are renting the bike from in Manali. If you are a foreign tourist, you must have an international driving license to be able to rent a bike in Srinagar.

is a scam
These themes are very very low quality and better ones are fund for free on the wordpress directory

they are a simple affiliate , they do have some themes but they are of such low quality that there way better alternatives out there .,
and they are expensive , understand that charging $60 a theme does not make it worth $60. the good products they have on their sites actually belong to other providers and they just take the affiliate fee.

the promotions deals they offer are misleading as you assume this is for what is offered on the website , but this is not the cased you actually have to do intensive research as to what is included and even after this and you paid for something it is not clear what you are getting for your money.

in short i got scammed , my advice stay away . there are really good services out there this is not one of them. there is nothing on their site Worth more then $5.

Thanks for sharing the inputs. I completely agree with what you said.

Purchased FireShop Pro. Installed OK, but:

1) the backend is configured in very unusual and hard to use ways; lots of customization.
2) many config options have default strings output if you don’t enter your own data; impossible to turn off without code hacks.
3) layout positions are fixed not dynamic.
4) the support forum doesn’t even have a thread for the theme – unsupported!
5) something was messed up with the admin login/logout process that caused a WSOD; only fix was to change to default theme via the database.
6) 2+ weeks of email promises from support with no resolution.
7) paid more for this theme than ever before, with the worst results ever.

I wasted far too much time on this, and my client is pissed off. I rebuilt the site in one day with another theme and asked for a refund. They said no.

Thanks for the helpful information Andrew. They said no to me as well for refund.

The worst and cheap service ever provided by plus the support is just a disaster.. And you said that they do have good design, but in fact they are not even near to modern themes and templates..!

Vargis.Khan September 20, 2017 - 2:37 pm

I agree with your views Kunal. And yes, now I kind of withdraw my statement about design as well, nothing special about that too.
