India – INS and OUTS

GM New Delhi

A great website for further general information about India is www.tourindia.com.

Airport

From most European destinations, the flight time is 7-8 hours. Delhi Airport is situated about 25 minutes drive from the hotel Hyatt Regency Delhi. To view the official Delhi airport website go to www.delhiairport.com.

Transport

The easiest way to get around the city is by taxi or auto-rickshaw, you can find them anywhere in the city. You can book a taxi in advance at a fixed price, or at a local taxi stand. For auto-rickshaws, although there are official rates, the meters are often out of order, and surcharges might be above the metered price. Therefore, negotiate the price before setting off.

Currency

The currency used is the India Rupee (INR). To give you an idea, 100 INR is approx. 1,88 €.

Tip 1

Make sure you get as many small notes as possible when you get your rupees, preferably notes of 10, 20, 50 and 100 (even coins are useful, for example it is 8 rupees to send an international postcard). Things are not that expensive and you can have trouble with your change if you have over a 500 note for an item that costs less than 400 INR.

Tip 2

Do not accept torn notes as change, no Indian will accept them from you. Notes are often quite battered, but tears are not accepted. Don’t accept it either if a shopkeeper offers to stamp it, to assure you it is ok, this is meaningless.
