Most backpackers have a limited budget and the money they are spending on local travel within a state or city can be very high. Hence it is important for backpackers to do some research on the public transport systems available in different places in India.
For example in Mumbai, train travel can be very cost effective, however trains can get very crowded, so the travel timings should be selected carefully.
Goa has some of the highest taxi and rickshaw fares in India, however the bus ticket rates are fairly affordable, with a ticket of Rs 8 covering a distance of few kilometers in the city of panaji. For the same distance, a rickshaw may charge Rs 100 or Rs 120 which is very high for a person with limited funds.
Similarly for travelling from Panaji, to Betim, the government is operating free ferries between Panaji, Goa and a backpacker can save money using the free ferries.
The murder of Irishwomen Danielle Mclaughin on 13 March 2017, in Canacona in Goa again highlighted the safety related issues faced by women travellers, especially in India. In most western countries, due to christian religion, a majority of people are more honest and they do not betray those who trust them due to the fear of god. However in India, men often are taught to treat women from india and abroad as second class citizens and have no qualms exploiting UK and other women tourists who make the mistake of trusting them.
The Scarlett Keeling case remains unresolved after nearly 9 years, though her mother Fiona Keeling spent a lot of time and money trying to get justice for her daughter. The mainstream media is often promoting india as similar to western cities and countries like USA, UK, Germany, however they make a major mistake when they refuse to acknowledge the fact that many indian men do not treat women as their equal, and are always looking for an opportunity to exploit, cheat women who make the mistake of trusting them

In most places in India it is far more difficult to find low cost accomodation for women in both cities and towns, costing less than $10 a day. This is because in India, women are mostly second class citizens, who are only expected to look after their homes and families by the all powerful indian intelligence and security agencies, however educated they may be. Single women who start a business are subjected to a very vicious slander campaign, endless atrocities, theft of resume, retirement savings, by the indian intelligence and security agencies especially cbi, to force them to a agree to identity theft.
So most women in India who have to travel on work or holiday alone, are fairly well educated and financially well off, so they will prefer expensive but safe accomodation
Most budget accomodation providers in small towns are specifically mentioning that they are only providing accomodation for men only as safety of women cannot be guaranteed. Usually for women, additional security features will be required. Since the number of women travellers is less, low volumes make it difficult to set up an affordable budget accomodation. Usually hostels are the only option for backpacker women travelers
