Add a dash of luxury to your next road trip or event by availing the services of KTC India and Victoria Car Rental

What do Mohammad bin Salman, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, Amitabh Bachchan, Barack Obama, Salman Khan and George W Bush have in common? If you're trying to think of something scandalous, you’ll be disappointed. All these popular figures and leaders have been patrons of KTC India — the country’s oldest luxury car rental service.

Imagine a leader of a country set to speak at a global summit, having to endure a rash ride, with a chauffeur that reeks of paan. Or a celebrity keeping thousands waiting at a meet-and-greet because the car ran out of fuel. Well, these are scenarios that will remain fiction with KTC.

The company focuses on delivering all-encompassing experiences, where the cost of the rental includes fuel, insurance, water and a chauffeur. And if you don’t believe us, you have appreciation letters from leaders of South Africa, Korea, Switzerland and the US, among numerous others to go by. But services that have a recommended stamp of the moguls come at a grand cost — starting from Rs 30,000, which will get you a car for eight hours for up to 80 kilometres from KTC’s luxury fleet. This includes options such as Mercedes S500 and E class, BMW 7 and 5 series, Audi A8 and Range Rover.

However if its your special day and splurging a little extra isnt an issue, what better way to paint the town red by getting yourself the ultra-luxurious The Rolls Royce Ghost Series II. “It is the most popular car in our luxury fleet, usually booked for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and date nights,” says Gurudev Ahluwalia, MD, KTC India. The Rolls Royce comes at 65,000 for the same distance and duration. 

When it comes to bigger rides, KTC offers a fleet of luxury mini vans including Toyota Coaster and Hiace, Mercedes Vianos, Volvo bus and the recently added Mercedes V class. These comfortable rides ensure maximum comfort while travelling to your faraway destination wedding. “We have been of service to many royal weddings in Udaipur, Mumbai and Delhi, where Indian as well as global celebrities were transported in confidence by our chauffeurs,” says Ahluwalia.

Now, if sedans and SUVs aren’t your style, Delhi-based Victoria Car Rental’s vintage fleet might be. Their fleet includes cars that date back to the times of Maharajas in India and have been inherited directly from Indian royal families. The rent starts at Rs 30,000 for eight hours and can go up to hundreds of thousands.

So grace your parties, weddings or business events with luxury by hiring from these car rentals and let your riches drive your guests crazy!
