Before you make any arrangements though, be sure to enquire with the hotel you are staying with to see if they have a complimentary shuttle service on offer from the airport to their premises, most high-standard hotels provide this service.

 

Mumbai

Getting to the city center from the Mumbai airport can easily and quickly be done by taking one of the taxis at the airport’s arrival terminals. Taking the buses from the airport might be another option, but you’ll have to take a few connecting rides to reach the heart of the city since most coaches don’t offer direct rides.

 

New Delhi

One of the easiest ways of getting to New Delhi’s city center from the airport is by making use of the Airport Express, a train service that runs every half hour to the city center. Alternatively, you may also take one of the pre-paid taxis that can be found parked outside of the arrival terminals at the airport, but keep in mind that they are much more expensive than the train.
