New Delhi It was my first destination outside of Europe. That’s where I really got my start in this world of travel. When I arrived I arrived at two in the morning London, and the confusion was enormous. I started Bad experience in India With a scam at New Delhi airport.
One of the ladies at the (official) tourist office at the airport scammed us The hotel where we planned to spend the night was no longer there, but some of his friends were taxi drivers and they would take us very well and at a good price. Of course, the opposite happened and we ended up paying a lot more per hole. Welcome to India! Our journey through Rajasthan was full of scams and people like this woman and left us with the worst memory of India. On the positive side, this was our first destination in a 6 month world tour and everything from then on looked spectacularly good and interesting.

Taxi from New Delhi Airport to City Center
If you are going to take a taxi from New Delhi airport to the city center, I do not advise you to go directly to the street and look for one. New Delhi Taxi Drivers are Bargainers/ Scammers. The government has set up some official counters to avoid – or reduce – the number of tourist scams In the International and Domestic Arrivals area of Terminal 3 of the airport.
You tell them what your destination is there, they give you the fare, you pay and they give you two receipts: one green and one pink. Pink is yours (as proof of payment) and At the end of the trip you have to give green to the driver. They need that green paper to collect fares at the Taxi Drivers Association office. Keeping it with you till the end of the journey will ensure that it takes you where you want to go.
