As you will be travelling near coastal areas, it is always preferred that you book AC car to travel. To reach Kanyakumari, from Thiruvananthapuram the road is not good and since you are travelling to a different state, you need to carry you ID proof and your driver should have permit to reach this place. The road until the end of Kerala is good and you will get Tender coconuts to get your energy back in the road sides. If your driver is a native then the rate is negotiable. If not then it is fixed for you. However, drivers are very cooperative and good.

We travelled in an AC three tire. The train is so dirty. They didn\'t have clean blankets and pillows. The toilets were dirty and stinking. The seats were dirty too. It took us two and a half hours to reach Kanyakumari. I would advice you not to travel by this train. More »
