Quick questions:
  1. Would it be Okay if for some days in the itinerary, you have to be on the road for 12+ hours (dusk to dawn)?
  2. If no, can you add at least 1 or two days in your plan?

@rohit.joshi1 : can you answer the above please as I see that 3 days one way will be spent just to cover Bangalore-Delhi and vice-versa, that too if you drive longer hours. It would be good if you can add at least 2 days. Please confirm.

Hello Team,

I mostly drive in night. So, maybe till Amritsar I can prefer night driving. Also, my wife is a club mahindra member so, my preference would be to stay at club mahindra if they are on the way.

Let me know.

Night driving is fine, but the question is whether you'd want to drive longer duration.. distances that are place 12+ hours apart. Asking because your's is a hatch and I'm not sure how comfortable it would be to drive for longer durations.
