Local transfers to/from the Conference Hotels from/to the City

The easiest and the cheapest way to get to/from the City from/to the hotels is by taxis (or) auto rickshaws.

Hotel front desks will normally be able to arrange reliable transport by taxi, but they will require 15-30 minutes’ notice in order to do so. Taxis are willing to wait for you during your intermediate stops at reduced charges. It is simplest to inform the front desk the places you wish to visit, the total time you wish to spend and the number of persons travelling. They would then be able to book the taxi for you at a fixed rate.

Auto Rickshaws
Three-wheeled auto rickshaws (also known as "Autos") are a convenient way to travel within the city. They cost half the fare of a taxi, but are more expensive than buses. Usually autos are metered, but it is good to fix the fare before they take you for a ride. They can be found clustered together in auto stands around the city. If there is no auto-stand near you, you can hail autos by standing on the side of the road and hailing an empty one.

The Rupee is the official currency of India. The Indian Rupee may be abbreviated in any of the following formats INR, Rs, or symbol

INR are available as paper notes in denominations of 5, 10, 50, 100, 500 and 1000.
INR are also available as coins in denominations of 1, 2, 5 and 10.

Changing money in India is very simple. Upon arrival in India, foreign currencies can be converted into Rupees at foreign exchange counters at airports. These outlets are open 24 hrs. a day / x7 days a week. You can also find Foreign Exchange desks at star-rated hotels.

Traveler’s cheques may not be accepted at all banks or hotels. There are Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs) which dispense cash throughout the city. Although these machines are linked to a specific local bank, all major credit and debit cards, both domestic and international, should be accepted. Kindly note that certain credit cards may not be accepted.
