Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) connects to the city centre in under 30 minutes via the Delhi Metro Airport Express Line. Buses also operate regularly and are crowded but cheap. Prepaid taxi booths are located in the international and domestic terminals and should be preferably used over metered taxis to avoid overcharging and scams. Prepaid taxis booths in Delhi are operated by Delhi Traffic Police and can also be found around the city.
Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (BOM) has regular trains to Mumbai city centre, but you’ll need to catch a bus from the airport to the train station. Taxis can also take you to the station or directly to your destination. Rickshaws are also available if you’re tempted by the experience, but always agree on a price before getting in.
Driving in India can be dangerous due to erratic driving and poorly-maintained roads. Canadian visitors require an International Driving Permit if you do decide to drive. Check you have adequate travel insurance and familiarize yourself with advice on what to do if you’re involved in an accident. You can also rent a car with a private chauffeur. These are readily available and relatively cheap.
