18 May 2018 - India Car Today

Cox & Kings has announced their entry into the booming self-drive car rental business in India with the launch of Self Drive 365.

Self Drive 365 is an online platform just like Zoomcar and Myles in which the user can book cars for long road trips.

Cox & Kings will take care of all the necessary documentation, trip itinerary, road-side assistance, accommodation, etc.

Cox & Kings will not have their own fleet of cars instead will rely on the fleet operators. The customers will also have a choice to take their personal vehicle instead of renting a car and still avail the services.

‘The USA – The Great Pacific Drive', ‘Spain – Spanish Tango', Ireland – The Wild Atlantic Drive' are few of the international drives whereas the ‘Heart of the Himalayas', ‘Into the Tiger's Lair' and ‘East Coast Life' are some that lets the enthusiasts explore India by road.
