I used to travel via Neeta Bus for Indore and it takes more than 1500 Rs, to reach my destination. But, due to these lucrative offers from Indigo, I was able to travel to my destination in just Rs 1900, and that too in an hour. Such a nice trip. Thanks to IndiGo Airlines.
It was pleasure flying to Indore via IndiGo. Most of the times I travelled by Air India, but this time because of high fare rate, I tried for IndiGo. It was Ok as per their cost but is was not that comfortable. But, exploring, many places at Indore was pleasantly good. I went to various malls at the centre of city.
It feels wonderful travelling by train from Mumbai to Indore by train and also the time is awesome to travel in winter session, the travelling timing is near about 12-14 hours which was too much but the train timing is very comfortable. It leaves Mumbai by 7:00 pm and reach Indore, early in the morning.
I guess we really had a bad weather. Starting of the monsoon so both our flights were late. So we had to wait back and kill our time otherwise it was nice. In flight service was not bad but could have been better though. The food served was good. Airports had good connectivity with the city.
Mumbai to Indore by Avantika Express. Its a night journey and convenient, journey was good, we enjoyed with family and friends. Train food was not so good but you can try. Its a different experience overall. Train was clean, good train for travailing to Indore/Ujjain.
