India Travel Advice
Make sure you are up-to-date with the pre-departure essentials before your trip to India.
Useful Tips for India Tours
The currency in India is the Indian Rupee (INR). We recommend you go to the city center to change your money.
ATMs are available in central locations, but access is difficult in rural areas.
You can pay with USD and EUR in some shops, but deals in the local currency are always more favorable.
The Food Scene
Indian food is famed for its rich and intense use of spices. We advise travelers to go easy on spices in the first few days to let their bodies adjust.
Tap water is not safe for drinking in India. Restaurants serve purified drinking water, but we recommend bottled water.
Try the aromatic Indian sherbets, tea, and chai tea, the most popular Indian beverages.
Solo and Safe Travel
Are you traveling alone? You can stay in a single room if your tour has the single supplement option.
You can also be roomed with a solo traveler of the same gender.
Sadly, displays of affection between LGBTQ+ couples may attract a negative response in India.
