Planning a trip to Andaman? You have made one of the finest decisions of your life! While you can leave all your planning, accommodation, sightseeing, and cuisine planning headaches about your travels in Andaman to Andaman Holiday Packages, there is something you will have to decide on your own. This decision involves how you want to reach Andaman for having a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Andaman can be reached in only two ways – by air and by ship. There is no way you can reach Andaman by train or bus. So, choose a flight or ship that suits your convenience; and worry not, you won’t require any passport, unless you are planning to visit Jolly Bouy Island, Redskin Island and Cinque Island.
Only a few cities in India can help you reach Andaman. There aren’t direct flights to Andaman from any and every state. You will have to travel to Bangalore, Kolkata, New Delhi, Bhubaneshwar, or Chennai to get a flight to Andaman. And, all flights from these cities land in Port Blair, the capital of Andaman, from where again you will have to travel further by another means to the place you decide to stay; for example, Havelock Island, Neil Island, Baratang Island, etc. You can book flights from Jet Airways, Spice Jet, Go Air, or Air India to help you reach the Veer Savarkar Airport in Port Blair; each taking approximately 2 hours to cover the destination.
Even if you wish to travel by sea, you will have to travel to cities like Chennai, Kolkata, and Vishakhapatnam from your city, to get a ship to Andaman. However, note that ships will take anywhere more than 3 days to reach the island. So, if you have enough time to invest in your Andaman package tour, only then is a travel by ship advisable. Moreover, ships do not travel every day. They travel only once or twice a week, or maybe even lesser. So again, you will have to check this with your vacation dates.
The local modes of transportation for travels in Andaman include taxis, autos, buses, minibuses, cabs, private jeeps, two-wheelers, and cycles. You can hire any of these for sightseeing, depending upon how many people you are. Cycles and two-wheelers are the best modes of transport to enjoy the various places of sightseeing if you are single or a couple. If you are larger groups, the other modes are available for hire. If you are a complete family or friend group, you can have Andaman Holiday Packages help arrange your transport along with every other aspect of your Andaman package tour.
Inter-island connectivity – When you want to travel between the islands in Andaman, like from Havelock Island to Neil Island, Port Blair to Ross Island, etc. you will have to opt for inter-island connectivity through ferry, cruise, or air.
