Important Safety Tips for Women when Arriving in India:
- After immigration, book a pre-paid or radio cab from the Airport Cab Desks – Many radio cabs have their outlets within the Arrivals area and enable you to hire a cab on the spot. With GPS, they are one of the safest modes of transportation. Alternatively, you can request an Airport-pick up from the hotel where you have booked a room.
- Do not publicize your hotel name for everyone to hear. But do convey the cab details, including registration number, name and phone number of driver to your hotel and relatives – within earshot of the driver.
- Even if you do not have anyone to convey the message too, do make a show of doing so – an act (pun intended) is all it takes to deter a driver from any dishonourable intentions.
- Do not get down anywhere en-route to your destination when travelling at night
