Taxi

Uber has established extensive operations in Udaipur and their cabs are easily available through their mobile application. You can also download the mobile application for ‘Ola Cabs’ on your smartphone and easily get around the city using their comfortable cars. Tuk-tuks (Auto rickshaws) are also easily and frequently available at tourist spots.

The Fest venue is The City Palace, Udaipur which is 30 minutes from Udaipur Airport. We have tied up with various hotels in the city and a full residential package is up on offer under our ‘Register’ section, however, if you chose to make your own arrangements then there are hundreds of options for hotels in Udaipur. They vary significantly in size, style, location, and price. You are welcome to choose one that suits you and make your arrangements directly with the hotel. If you are making your own choice, we recommend staying near the scenic lakes.

We’ll shortly publish details of #SGEF2018 affiliated hotels, (Near SGEF2018 Venue) and the best prices on reservations for our esteemed delegates.
