Airport Safety Tips in India Your travel needs end here

Airport Safety Tips in India

Airports in India can be extremely chaotic, which provides a perfect opportunity for touts, thieves and conmen. As you would anyway, don't trust strangers and stay alert. Also remember a few safety tips.

Never leave your luggage, briefcase or other items unattended. When you set them down, place them between your feet or against your leg.
Avoid currency exchange windows if possible or exchange only a small amount. Do not let others see how much currency you are carrying.
Be wary of imposter porters or guides. Assure they are properly uniformed or identified.
Pre-paid taxis and auto rickshaws (3 wheelers) are available from the airport. Use only authorized, properly identified taxis. If you have a lot of luggage, it is advisable to pre-book a private car transfer with your travel representative.
Assure all your baggage is placed inside the taxi trunk and the lid is closed before entering the taxi.
Don't accept an offer to share a taxi to your hotel unless you know the individual.
Beware of touts offering cheap accommodation or deals. They are usually cheats and conmen.
