So lets find out as how to reach Goa...
India's main domestic airlines, Indian Airlines, Jet Airways and Air Sahara have regular domestic services between Goa and Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kochi (Cochin), Kozhikode (Calicut), Pune and Bangalore. Most airlines have reasonable onward connections to other cities in India from Mumbai or Delhi.
Computerized booking systems mean getting Goa Flight information and making reservations is relatively simple, but flights into and out of Goa are heavily booked between December and February, so plan as far in advance as possible.
You will get cheap flights to goa from major cities of India.
India has a comprehensive and extensive public bus system, but most of the state-run vehicles are tired, decrepit and overcrowded. From neighbouring states you'll find frequent bus services into Goa - it's just a matter of turning up at the bus station and checking timetables or jumping on the next available bus. There are also plenty of private bus companies running into Goa from Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Mangalore and other interstate cities.
The private buses are marginally more expensive, but are also faster and more comfortable, with reclining seats and the option of air-condition or even 'sleeper' class.
Two railway system cross the state. The South Central Railway has its terminus in Mormugao (past Vasco da Gama) and runs due east, through Margao (Madgaon) and into Karnataka. The main stations in Goa include Pernem, for Arambol (Harmal); Thivim (Mapusa Road) station, for Anjuna, Baga and Calangute; Karmali (Old Goa) station, for Old Goa and Panaji; Margao, for Colva and Benaulim; Canacona, for Palolem.
If coming from Mumbai or Mangalore you can book your ticket to these intermediate stations, but even if you book through to Margao you can get off at any station en route.
Renting a self-drive car in any of the main cities in India and driving to Goa is possible but not recommended. India holds and unenviable record of having the most dangerous rounds in the world.
If you want to travel into Goa by car it's easy to hire a car and driver. Car-hire companies offer chauffeur-driven services, or you can simply make your way to the nearest taxi rank and start bargaining. The 600km trip from Mumbai to Goa takes about 14 hours; many drivers will happily do this in one stretch, although you can easily break it over two days, perhaps stopping overnight on the beach at Ganpatipule.
