Important Safety Tips for Women while Travelling by Cabs in India:
- When hiring a cab on the road, call the hotel front desk or a relative (even if imaginary) and relay the details of your cab – registration number, car colour and driver name within earshot of your driver. This serves as a great deterrent to drivers with dishonourable intentions.
- Preferably, hire a cab through your hotel. Your safety is always worth the extra cost. Alternatively, you can also opt for radio cabs such as Meru Cabs in Delhi – these metered taxis are monitored on GPS and hence a lot safer.
- Keep your windows rolled up.
