There is a 50 rupee charge to "leave" the terminal and you receive a voucher at the desk which you give to the chauffeur. However, at some aerodromes only certain chauffeurs are permitted in the areas of the aerodromes and they have a so-called money-position. When you go away a little (it's the same at buses and stations ), you can find chauffeurs with whom you can bargain at a reasonable rate.
You can see that the easiest and most sensible way is to take a taximeter, but still the drive from the airports will always be a bit higher. If you are travelling next to the international airports, a rickshaw is funny, airy and incredible cheap. Drivers don't get much cash from an agent; it's the firm - and you get mugged.
No wonder I had two riders stop for fuel and asked me to help with the payment. UPDATING: After a few years of life in India, Uber came here and I only now remember updating this article. Over lies in many of India's largest towns and is probably the BEST way to get transport, even from airport.
Here is what you need to know about Uber in India. They need a point-to-point telephone number/WiFi (Tips for using the Internet in India here). After all, I think I'm done giving my transport advice! You' re probably tired of having to read about it by now, but it will be good as a guide if you are planning a journey to India later!
My other advice for India is on how to stay safely in busses and trams, how to make a reservation for a rail, what kind of classes and explanation of the number of tourists and what to do, as well as how to choose to take a sleeping coach or an accommodation in India. When you are a single traveller, I have a contribution to self-confidence and fourteen security hints for travelling in India first.
