 Delhi Airport Taxi Scams


Many scams are in operation at the Delhi Airport and you are recommended to use a pre-paid taxi, rather than one of the hordes of taxi touts who will meet to try and swindle you with their ridiculous rates.


The Hotel Switch

In this scam, your taxi driver tells you that your does not exist, or it has closed, or it is full... or he simply cannot find it. He then suggests taking you to another hotel, or perhaps a travel agent to make another booking. It’s all fixed: the so-called travel agent and hotel are owned by his friends, and he gets a kickback. Be firm, and insist to be taken to the hotel you have chosen.


Pre-Paid Taxi False Sense of Security 

You might think that because you have a pre-paid taxi voucher that you are not at risk of being scammed, but this is not true. To avoid trickery such as the scam above, be sure to hold onto your pre-paid taxi voucher, and do NOT give it to the driver until you arrive at your hotel.


Tip: you are most likely to be scammed if it is revealed that it is your first trip to India and are tired. Even if you are are exhausted and overwhelmed upon arrival, do your best to freshen up, look alert and do not talk about it being your first trip to India.


Tip: it is a good idea to have the hotel name and address written down.
