Beaches in Goa are far apart, and it stretches more than 100 km from north to south. Bus connectivity is good for popular areas of Goa and fares are low and still gives you a great view of the city. But buses are not a great option if you are looking for beach hopping or going to hang around till late night. Also, there are no Ola and Uber services available in Goa. You could rent a motorcycle or a scooter if you have a valid license. The rent starts at INR 300 per day per bike like Honda Activa or around INR 400 per day for Royal Enfield bikes. This excludes petrol costs. Riding on bikes is the most popular way of commuting in Goa for young tourists, including foreigners. You can also hire a cab, with or without a chauffeur to roam around. Cars cost approximately 900 - 1300 per day. However, finding parking spots close to all beaches could be a problem whereas bikes give you the flexibility of going pretty close to the beach to park.
