India Base Itineraries

If things are happening too fast, don’t worry - you can slow it down by changing the pace of your trip.  If seven days isn’t enough, why not add more nights in the places that grab you most and extend your India itinerary to three weeks? You can even choose accommodation options to suit your personal style (such as something with a bit more character) or your budget (go luxury for that blowout). Plus, you can add experiences to your whole trip based on your interests. Whether you’re a foodie, can’t sit still or want to spend a bit more time meeting the locals, we’ve got it covered. Just choose from the Foodie, Active, Authentic or Once in a Lifetime experience packs when planning your holiday. 

Once you’re happy with your trip, all you need to do is enter your dates, select your flights, and then you can book up the whole thing.

If all that sounds like too many decisions in one session – choices, choices! – then just save your trip at any point and come back to it later. You can even create multiple trips to share with your significant other, so you can agree on the one that works for both of you. Simple really. And a lot of fun.

As Confucius said (or, at least, somebody very wise), you’ve got to start somewhere – and when you’re creating your India holiday with Meraki Travel, you start with a base itinerary.

This base is where you get down to business. It includes the ‘You’d be mad to miss’ destinations in each region – you know, those places you simply must visit otherwise you’ll be kicking yourself once you get back.

When you’ve settled on your base India itinerary, you can then tailor it to your exact requirements. Fancy adding new locations to your trip? Choose Goa for some beach chilling time, or Shimla to experience the Himalayas. And if you change your mind – no worries. Just click to remove them from your India travel itinerary until you’ve got it right.
