Important Information

1. It is illegal to buy Indian currency outside India and bring it into India. The Indian customs may confiscate such Indian currency brought from outside India.

2. Avoid changing your foreign currency at the airport or in your hotel, they will give you a very bad exchange rate.

3. Carry your foreign currency, and do not exchange it if you do not get a good rate. There are many money changers in Mumbai and some companies may accept foreign currency as well.

4. Before visiting India, do not forget to inform your Bank that you are planning to visit India and intend to use your Credit Cards or Debit Cards in India. If your bank notices a transaction on your card from India, and if they are not aware of your India holiday, they may suspect it as a fraud and block your cards. Hence its always great to inform your bank in advance before your Indian holiday.

 

Safety Advice

1. Do not accept any currencies which have anything written on them from anyone. Currency Notes that are scribbled on by pen or ink are not accepted by anyone. So be very careful when you change your money at a money changer or your hotel, check all the bills they give you and make sure they are not torn or scribbled upon by pen or ink.

2. Do not use ATM's which are in open space. Use the ATM's that are inside the bank premises or are enclosed.

Mumbai Advice

Our Sightseeing Tours in Mumbai, start from a meeting location in Colaba. We may do free pick up's and drop back's from hotels in South Mumbai, but many hotels like Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Trident Hotel Nariman Point, Oberoi Hotel, Intercontinental Hotel Marine Drive are located very near to our Meeting Locations. We recommend you to stay in South Mumbai.

 

If you are coming to the meeting location from North Mumbai based hotels, we highly recommend you to take an Uber. It will save your money and would cost only Rs 500 to Rs 600 from North Mumbai to South Mumbai. If you take the yellow and black prepaid taxi, they have fixed charges of Rs 800 to Rs 1000 from many North Mumbai hotel's to come to South Mumbai.

 

Avoid taking a yellow and black taxi. After the tour, once again you can use Uber to go back to your North Mumbai hotel from South Mumbai.
