Hyderabad Goa Family trip

Question

Friends,

 

This is my first post in this group and I am really looking for learning and sharing experience from/with the group, thanks!

 

I am planning for Hyderabad Goa trip in first week of June with my wife and son. I will be staying in Palolem. I have already gone through the route info and Will follow that strictly. 

 

I have Wagon R LXI- 2011 Model and it is in good condition. Is it a good idea to travel this long route on this Car ? 

 

Please suggest anything I have to consider before planning this trip. Any suggestions/replies are highly appreciated.

@PareshBhinde you can do it in WagonR without any issues as long as you have got your car thoroughly checked before travel at the service center / your mechanic. Try to start early in the morning to avoid city traffic and reach early, avoid driving late in the night since you are traveling with Family! I am that last minute Goa plan drop due to one of the friend not turning up batch guy and hence will let our fellow members to give you more suggestions on "In Goa" updates!!

[mention=594]Sridhar Tandra[/mention] Thanks for your valuable inputs.. Can I cover the full distance in a day if I start at 4AM in the morning , or I should break the journey and next day I should proceed ? 
You should be able to cover the distance in a day and reach by evening as per the latest route updates by our fellow members. It should be around 10-12 hours which means you will reach Goa before or by sunset

I just noticed that Panaji-Belgavi route is closed for some reason on Google maps. Anybody have any current update pls ? 

 

Take the following route. 
Even though it is longer, it is better compared to other routes.

Hyderabad -> Zaheerabad -> Humnabad -> Kalaburgai -> Vijaypura -> Bagalkot -> Belgavi -> Baga 

 

Don't take mollem route. 

If you stay around Baga on the day of arrival, you can save some time . (1~2 hours)

Very difficult to do it under 10-12 hours. 
Since he is driving down to Colva. 

It will take minimum 15 hours to cover the distance. 

How many days you are planning the trip?

I think it may be possible for people like you and Aritray. (on a beast mode 24x7)
But for regular drivers it will take minimum 13~14 hours.

Hyderabad to Goa roads are like maze. We missed route many times. Google maps should be monitored continuously.

Hi Ranger,

 

Thanks a lot for your valuable inputs. 

 

I am going for a 4 day trip. To be very frank, I am still thinking about this long drive( from BHEL to Palolem)  which, I don't think, I can cover in a day. I must take a night halt in Vijaypura and then next day I can proceed towards Goa as per your advised route. 

What would be the approximate travel cost, including Fuel and Toll for both ways please ? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Hyderabad to Goa can be done in a single day without any issues. 
But If you feel uncomfortable driving for14 hours, better to take a halt.

 

Don't stop at Vijaypura. Stop at Hubli. 
Next day you can cover some place around Goa. 
Since Hubli to Goa is under 5 hours  drive.

 

In Hubli many stay options are available and well priced. 

 

Day1:
Hyderabad to Hubli 

Day 2: 
Hubli to Palolem 
If you start from Hubli around 6AM, you will reach Palolem by afternoon.
You will have time to relax in Goa from afternoon.

Hyderabad to Kalaburgai, you will find some tolls, should be under 200/-
Before entering Goa ghat section you have to pay around 250/-, only one time.
