A mate and I are planning a trip to India this summer and had an idea of travelling by tuk tuk. Does anyone know what it would cost to hire or buy a Tuk Tuk? Also does anyone know what paperwork or licences are required?

    The Indian version of the S.E. Asian 'Tuk Tuk' is known simply as 'Auto Ricksaw' or 'Three wheeler'. They are an extremely common mode of transport, espescially in cities but are not often used for long distance travel because they are slower than a car.
    To hire one can cost approx 100 Rupees for 10km (approx!). I can't tell you about buying one but once in India you may easily contact appropriate sources.
    I have never, in 12 years in India, seen a foreigner driving one but there are many places I haven't been to in India.
    Also the roads and other drivers can be pretty bad so having a good driver may take a lot of the stress out of your travel.
