Delhi Airport Transfer Service: Delhi Airport Transfer Service from Namaste India Tours: For INR 800, an English speaking driver from Namaste India Tours will meet you at the exit of the arrivals hall at Delhi airport with you name on a placard. (Yes, he'll be there if you're plane is delayed. Yes, he expects you'll need to change money before you leave the arrivals hall). He'll help you load your luggage in to an Ambassador or Tata Indica and take you to the hotel of your choice. There is no night time surcharge, no extra charge for luggage, no driving around in circles listening to how your hotel burned down the night before! If we confirm a booking with a driver, we have to pay the driver whether you show up or not. You pay the driver only after you have arrived at your destination. (Our airport drivers are not allowed to suggest hotels, so no need to worry about ulterior motives). You don't have to share anything with us except your flight number and date and time of arrival. We need a name to put on the placard so we can find each other, but you can use a fake name if you want to. All arrangements are made by e-mail and we don't share our mailing list with anyone. We do need advance notice to arrange services. For reservations e-mail inquiry@namasteindiatours.com.
AVIS India: AVIS India offers provide radio taxi services at Delhi airport round the clock. Call 65012525 for service.
Warning: Many scams are in operation at the airport, and you are recommended to use a pre-paid taxi, rather than one of the hordes of taxi touts who will meet you.
