Frequently asked questions
You certainly can. Expedia offers a selection of car rentals that you can book now and pay later. That means you can lock in your ride without having to pay upfront. You’ll only pay the cost in full when you go to pick it up, and a hold will be placed on your credit card for the amount of the deposit. Bear in mind that some of the cheaper deals in Madikeri may need to be paid when you book. You’ll clearly see your options in the search results display.
We get that flexibility is important. That’s why many prepaid reservations give a total refund if you let us know a minimum of six hours before the collection time. It’s a good idea to read the rental policy though because there are some exclusions. If you can’t find the answer there, have a look on our Customer Service Portal.

Madikeri requires drivers to be at least 18 to rent a vehicle. However, young drivers will be subject to a surcharge and tighter rental conditions. Many companies impose a young renter fee in addition to the normal car rental rate. This covers the higher risk of damage or accident. While many car classes (like compact and economy) are available to young renters, restrictions usually apply to premium and specialty vehicles.
Generally, all that’s required is a driver’s license and credit card in your name when picking up your vehicle. Proof of coverage may also be required if you choose to opt out of the company’s insurance plan. Requirements are likely to differ between rental outlets, so it’s always a good idea to check before you book.
In Madikeri and across India, you’ll need to drive on the left side of the road. This can be daunting enough, but the driver’s seat and some controls are also on the opposite side to what you’re used to. For a smooth and safe journey, take things slow at first and leave yourself some extra time to reach your destination.
You’ll need to obtain an International Driving Permit to get behind the wheel in Madikeri. This permit allows you to legally drive in many countries and must be carried with your U.S. driver’s license.
With prices starting from as low as and a day in Madikeri within the past seven days, you’ll be driving away with your own fantastic deal before long.
