Hyderabad is at a drivable distance from Bangalore, using National Highway 7 (552 kilometers). If you’re coming from Chennai, you can either take NH9 or NH5 for a distance of 652 kilometers. From Mumbai, it is about a 700km ride, using NH9 and the expressway. If you’re renting a car, car companies require you to pay for driver charges so make sure to ask them about that, as well as night halt charges, per kilometer charge, and other important information. Also, the consistency of the road conditions in the region is uneven so the travel may not be smooth throughout.
