Tips:

Fix your budget before your journey as it makes easier to find your budget hotels. We did our hotel bookings on the spot (traveller guy helped us to find our budget hotels). Bargain is must EVERYWHERE.. do not be ashamed to do so as it can save your bucks. Food in Kerala is not very expensive unless you prefer 5* restaurants. Ask the locals for their special dishes for food. Use of Hindi language is limited. Be prepared for speaking TUTKA FUTKA English. It helps a lot. Not neccessary to carry saree while visiting Padmanabham Temple instead purchase a dhoti from there costing Rs.60/- to Rs.90/- and wrap it around your waist above your jeans.

HAPPY JOURNEY !!
