Dear Janet,

From Tiruchirappalli airport, Sri Ramanasram, is about 200 to
250 kms and it would take a cab about five hours, taking into
account the conditions of Indian roads.  If you know Tamil,
talk to the cab driver in Tamil and he will cheat you less. The
cabs should be available from the airport itself.  Or come out of the
airport thorugh a local cab and reach the cab stations which are
lining up in different parts of the city.  It will cost you about
Indian Rupees 1500 to reach Tiruvannamalai.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Janet,

Yes. Local city cabs and cabs for long distance can accommodate
five persons, excluding the driver.  You have to speak English,
there is no other go.  But beware of excess fare.  Travel in the
day time.

My suggestions could be, if you travelling to India particular to visit the Thiruvanamalai, or bypassing India and make quick visit to the holy place. You have an options
1) Get down in Bangalore, India and catch a KSRTC bus(A/c) to Thiruvanamalai that will cost you around Rs 500 it will take to nearly four hours to reach there.
2) If possible take flight to Pondicherry and take a bus to Thiruvanamalai that will reach you sooner
