TRAVEL TIPS AS RECOMMENDED BY VIRTUAL
suggesting you the thirteen points to remember while
you are traveling across India.
I) In general, cash is better than traveler's
checks. Cash can be easier and quicker to exchange
and command a higher rate or the commission can be
lower. In some places, the larger the denomination
of bills, the better the exchange rate. Many
merchants will take dollars and their rate of
exchange can be higher than the "official" rate
II) Take a fair amount of small denomination US
money for airport (departure) taxes and when you
only need to exchange a small amount of money-like
when leaving a country. You can also often get
better prices in shops if you pay with greenbacks.
Collect or exchange as much small change as
practical, very few people seem to have change,
especially in rural areas.
IV) Refer to your guide book on the existence of any
black market for currency exchange and whether to or
how to use it. Some countries are more tolerant of
black markets than others.
V) When you exchange money, exchange as much as you
think you will need for some time as it can be a
real time consuming task or the banks will have odd
(and short) hours. You may not be able to exchange
money at all in small towns or in the countryside.
Money can also be exchanged in many hotels
VI) Take a personal check and an American Express
card. If you need more money, you can go into an
American Express office with your card and write a
check for traveler's checks. Cash machines are also
more common now in large cities.
VII) Keep money and valuables in a money belt or
pouch under your clothes. If you carry a bag for
guide books, maps, brochures, etc., use one with a
zipper and hang on to it. Leave your wallet and
purse at home. Crimes that take place are usually
crimes of opportunity, like pickpockets, as opposed
to violent crime (unlike in the U.S. According to
FBI statistics from more than 80 other countries,
only the Bahamas has a higher than the U.S. per
capita frequency of robberies and violent thefts).
VIII) ALWAYS keep your passport, plane ticket, money
and camera with you.
IX) As soon as you arrive someplace, arrange your
way on to your next stop. Trains/planes/("first
class") busses tend to get booked up in advance.
Travel agencies can usually get reservations for you
as they book blocks of seats well in advance.
X) When traveling by regular bus, try to get seated
close to the front as they will keep packing people
in until there is no room left inside. Additional
people then hang on the outside and climb on the
roof, when travelling in a ordinary bus.
settle on a fare before climbing into an un-metered
taxi. If metered, make sure the driver will go by
the meter or decide on a price. Make sure the price
includes everyone in your party. In some countries,
the meters can't be readjusted as fast as the rate
of inflation so the fare may be the meter price plus
X%. Check your guide book or ask someone if the
driver won't go by the meter. Rates are often higher
in the middle of the night and between an airport
XII) When you step out the door of an airport, be
prepared to become the focal point of dozens of taxi
drivers and kids drumming up business for busses.
Know what you want to do before stepping through the
door. Check your travel guide or ask someone in the
airport how much a ride to town should cost and what
the choices are present.
XIII) Check your guidebook for taxi and restaurant
tipping guidelines. In some places the service is
included, others it is not, and in still others
there is a combination of included service charges
and tipping. For tipping 10% of the bill amount is
