Benefits of hiring a taxi while visiting Delhi or nearby cities

When visiting a new city it is always a good idea to do a careful research of the place, after all it is an work out in endurance. Especially for public who cannot converse in the language of the city. Not having any information about the place you are in is always used as power by people looking to take benefit of you.

Here are a few necessary tips for public visiting the city for the first time:


It is of supreme importance that under no condition do you give your original credentials or information to anyone apart from government, police or immigration officials.

Always keep in mind to leave all your valuables and important papers, such as ornaments and passports, secured in a secure deposit box of your hotel room. Make certain to never leave these things unattended in your room or carry large sums of cash on the streets by yourself.

It would be an excellent wise to plan in advance when visiting Delhi, regarding your stay and tourism in Delhi. Try not to take any guidance of Taxi Drivers regarding your stay/tour in Delhi. Follow only those information given by Police Officers, or any other Government recognized information Centers like Delhi Tourism.


It is sensible to travel in groups when moving around the city at night. If you are roaming alone at night, prefer traveling in a Pre Paid Taxi as it is governed and managed by the Delhi Traffic Police. In a pre paid service, you pay the fare in advance depending on the distance and luggage you have.

Bear in mind to be completely aware of your baggage and other things at Airports, railway Stations and Bus Terminals.

The cheap and best way to travel in the city is by using the taxi or the metro. Even though buses hit almost every corner and corner of the city if you are not familiar with the language or the roads traveling by the bus is not a wise choice. While traveling or walking about in busy places, be very careful of pick pockets, and do not keep your wallet or any money in your rear pockets.

Traffic is, by and large, dreadfully congested and many drivers are it autos or taxis will think nothing but quoting ten times the usual fare to a tourist. Do some researches on the current fares being charged for every public transport, and agree on prices before setting off. At any time if you feel that you are being charged unfairly, get in touch with the adjacent traffic policeman immediately.

Tourist Guides:

Delhi is home to many touts, so be careful of being lured into their complicated traps. They pose as guide, affable inhabitants or even government or police officials. One of the more baffling things when in Delhi is trying to arrange you’re onwards travel, and being certain in what your told is correct. There are countless fake 'Government Approved' Tourist Info places, you need to go to a legitimate Government Approved Tour Operator like taxi service delhi, count on auto or taxi drivers to take you to the correct place, do your research properly.


Never bring more money than you need, try to carry credit cards and minimal cash in your pockets. Carry your wallet in an inside jacket pocket or side trouser pocket, never in the rear pocket. ATM networks of all major banks can be found at various locations in Delhi. So, it is better to use plastic card instead of carrying cash all the time. When exchanging money, make sure you only go to registered money exchangers.


Delhi has extreme type of weather, which means awfully hot during the summers, while very cold in the winters. Try to visit Delhi during the period of Feb-March and Sept-Nov. At this time, the weather of Delhi is at its best. If you come in any other month, you will be facing either awfully hot or extremely cold weather.
