"Not all those who wander are lost."
Holiday trips are as much about the journey as they are about the destination. Today, you could fly down to your favourite spot, but that's like fast-forwarding a movie to only watch the climax. A self-drive tour, on the other hand, cherishes the spirit of exploration and welcomes the chance of getting lost, which in turn is an opportunity to find your way back. This is the spirit embodied by Self-Drive 365, powered by Cox & Kings, your one-stop road-trip planner, where we believe that few connections are as visceral and satisfying as that between rubber and road.
"I can speak to my soul only when the two of us are off exploring deserts or cities or mountains or roads." - Paulo Coelho
A large part of what makes road-trips fun are the various types of terrain they take you through. Be it winding hill-climbs, arrow-straight highways or beach-hugging coastal roads, each route is fun for a different reason. In our list, you'll find self-drive holidays that require you to clobber over sand and snow, and also drive up-and-down hills and across flat expressways.
"Throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

We have designed and curated our road-trips to bring out the best in every journey, be it restaurants, places of interest or photo opportunities, so that your road-trip with us is as memorable as can be.
The road comes naturally to this self-proclaimed Harley boy, and there's hardly anything that Kunal would miss for a fun day out on his Fat Boy. Besides chest-thumping Harley-Davidsons, our self-drive expert is a keen photographer, a die-hard J. R. R. Tolkien fan, while his portly shape should tell you about his third obsession, that for food. Lots of food! To the effect that if there's delicious grub available anywhere, be it at a fancy restaurant, cafe or tapri, Kunal will be able to direct you to it.
"Take the road, stop where you wish and for as long as you want and soak it all in. That's the joy of a road trip!" Clearly the words of a bona fide road-tripper; that's just one of many shoes our self-drive expert, Anuradha slips into. This businesswoman from Indore befriended the road early in life, driving shotgun with her father - an avid driver himself. Unsurprisingly, she quickly graduated to the driver's seat, and today, even prides herself in fixing her cars by herself when blazing a trail. Mind you, a hockey-stick is an integral part of her tool-kit. Her other prized possess ...
