About our India Holidays

From Megasthenes to Michael Palin, India has enthralled travellers for literally thousands of years and its modern incarnation, home to nearly one fifth of the world’s people, remains a country of incomparable fascination – whether you’re coming for the first time, or as a seasoned veteran, TransIndus are the UK specialists as the leading India travel company can help you make the most of the destination.

The main problem facing any would-be traveller to the subcontinent, experienced or first timer, is deciding where to start. The answer depends on what style of holiday to India you have in mind, of course. But roughly speaking, if this is your first tour of India you’ll probably be setting your sights on one of two regions: either the “Golden Triangle” of Delhi (the capital), Agra (site of the Taj Mahal) and Jaipur (India’s flamboyant ‘Pink City’), with a possible extension deeper into the desert state of Rajasthan or Kerala and the historic highlights of neighbouring Tamil Nadu.

The Best Time to Visit India

Due to the vast size of the country, India can be a year-round destination if you know where to visit and when. But the best and most popular time to go is between October and March when it is not too hot, the skies are clear and the nights quite mild.

Whether you are planning your first-trip to India or have visited many times, we have broken down when the best time to visit India is by region.
