Did you get yourself a Myles self-drive?

Last week, I’d put out a giveaway offering the winner a self-drive car for two days with India’s only self-drive car service, Myles. Myles is available across 16 destinations in India, and they offer a fair depth in the variety of cars, so I wanted to make sure one of you gets an option on your car type and where you’d go with the car. The entries came in over a week, and Anant came out to be the winner: My best road trip has been exploring Ladakh with Leh as the base.

Finally, an organised self drive car option around India: Myles

One of the disadvantages I’ve found India to deal with is the lack of self-drive car hires such as the Avis and Hertz offerings globally. The traditional preference in India used to be of a chauffeur-driven car, and most fleet owners/operators still offer those options only to their clients.
