By car

The global pandemic has made it hard for travel enthusiasts and wanderlusts to opt the public transports, thus, the car is the most preferred mode of transport amongst the travellers. If you are going with your family and there are three-four persons, then a car would be the cheapest and comfortable option.

The Bangalore Chennai highway is complete bliss for travellers. The smooth drive complemented with scenic beauty and amazing stops make it a complete travel package.

In these tough times, while travelling via road, you should always look for hygienic food outlets and clean washrooms whenever you need to take a break from driving.  All these precautions are taken care of at Cube Stop where you will find several food outlets serving tasty dishes. Also, the washrooms are extremely clean and regularly sanitized.

By plane

There is an option of going by flight as well. Along with being the costliest, it is the fastest mode also, but Bangalore city traffic is a big drawback, it takes 2-3 hours to reach the airport from the center of the city. Since you are going by flight, you will be required to reach the airport at least one hour before. So decide as per your convenience.

 By train

It is an easy, cheap, and convenient mode of transportation if you want to reach Chennai from Bengaluru and vice versa. For day journey, you have many options, but for night travelling, there are not many trains. An added benefit is that Chennai Central (local train station) is very close to the railway station. The only catch is that you will have to reserve your berth seat on the train at least one month before.
