My hotel transfer in Delhi You are all set to visit New Delhi, India for the First time ( I am guessing though, Am I right?)  You are excited! I know. After all you have waited for this long. By know your Itinerary, tour Plan, your hotels & tours are all ready or almost there...like a dream it's all going to be true soon. Isn't it ? hehe...but...wait a minute...."What about Hotel-Transfer?"

Entering India and not expecting to come across a scam is unimaginable (sadly). Not mean to shock you though, not my intention. But, It's imperative you acquaint and equip yourself about know-hows after you exit the airport terminal or the Railway Station in Delhi, to avoid any pitfalls. (that's my intention :)

You are going to learn:
  • Various Hotel Transfer Options & Which One Fits Your Needs Best
  •  Where to Look for Prepaid or Radio Taxis after exiting Airport & Railway Stations
  • Transfer Fares
  • Cautions
Here we go. 
Hotel Transfer Option No. 1

Pre-Paid Taxi/Delhi-Traffic Police Prepaid Booths
One of the preferred ways to reach Hotel from Delhi International/Domestic Airport & Railway Station. This is Safe, hassle free way, No negotiation on fare required, simply pay and reach your Hotel.

Transfer Fare

They have different rates based on the distance of the location of your hotel. For instance, if it's Connaught Place the Fare is around Rs 300 (please do check existing rates). 

Night Charges: 25%  extra

Cautions

  2.  Beware of "Pre-paid Taxi Scam better known as "Rs 500
    Swap"
    . Yea! no matter how interesting it sounds, many first time visitors have been duped by this trick. In Nutshell the scam is, you hand over Rs 500 Note to pay for the fare at the counter and they swap it with Rs 100 note and say,"
    I need 500 not 100" Read More here.
  3. Many Times the Driver would pretend that they do not know the way or the Hotel is closed so that they could take you to another Hotel for earning Commission.

Hotel Transfer Option No. 2
Radio Taxi

AC Cabs with English speaking Drivers (mostly) a little costly compared to prepared taxi, but worth it's while. One of the most popular ways to reach Hotel from Delhi International/Domestic Airport.

Availability: 24x7
