How do I get to Goa?

Ganesh stutueGoa is now a popular holiday destination, and charters operate from all over the world. Ideal if you are only coming for 3 weeks or under. If you want to come for longer fly scheduled. However there are no scheduled flights direct to Goa, only to Mumbai or Delhi. From there you will need to purchase a connecting internal flight or train down to Goa.

There are a few new low cost airlines operating flights to Goa, including Deccan Air and Kingfisher which both have connections between Goa and Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore. Other domestic airlines operating flights to Goa are Jet Airways, Air Sahara and Indian Airways which all offer the online booking. The train service between Mumbai and Goa is very good and you can book online a few weeks ahead of travel through Konkan Railway. (The nearest station to Mumbai airport is Dadar, not the Terminal. Once in Goa, you should alight at Thivim Station, which is about 20 minutes from Guggenheim). If you need help with travel arrangements within Goa, email Manoj Salkar at Kwick Travel at Manali Guest House, near StarCo Junction in Anjuna. You can telephone Manoj on (00 91) 9822 183 019.

There is only one airport Dabolim (Goi) which is about one hour taxi drive away, from us and local accommodation. Unless your hotel picks you up, we can arrange a pick up on receipt of your full flight details, (this will save the non local Taxis hunting for us), at a fixed cost of 700 rupees per taxi, you will need to pay the driver for this so change a small amount of money at the airport.

To get to Goa from the East Coast of the USA, we recommend that you get a cheap flight to Europe (London or Manchester in the UK or Frankfurt in Germany are good hub airports) and then connect with a charter which flies direct in to Goa.

To get to Goa direct from Europe, the following Travel Agents specialise in charters to Goa. They are obliged by Goan law to offer accommodation with flights, but if you want a flight only, choose the 'Dormhouse' option.

  1. GoAway www.goaway.co.uk Tel: (00 44) 207 258 7800
  2. TravelPack www.travelpack.co.uk Tel: (00 44) 701 212 040
  3. Jewel in the Crown Holidays www.jewelholidays.com Tel: (00 44) 1293 533 338

All offer packages of direct flights and accommodation in hotels in nearby Vagator, Anjuna or Baga, all of which are relatively close to Assagao. If you are going for the 'Dormhouse' (flight only) option and plan to make your own accommodation arrangements, then the location of the Dormhouse is irrelevant.
