When to Travel Business Class to India
The weather in India is different for each city. Southern India tends to have a tropical climate while northern India is colder and often snowy. Although there are seven different weather classifications across India, the seasons are regular and predictable. As long as you avoid the Monsoon season (June to October), travel and transport should be reliable.
Where to Stay and How to Get Around
When your business flights to India touch down, it’s essential to have a transport plan in mind. Most hotels will have an airport pick up service for a small fee. Failing that or if you’d prefer to arrange your own drop-off, a prepaid taxi is the safest option. You should see a sign advertising PREPAID TAXI as you exit the terminal where you can book your taxi and guarantee a safe trip at a fair price.
If you do decide to get a metered taxi, make sure you agree on a price before you get into the car or let the driver load your luggage.
Note: The roads in India are some of the most dangerous in the world so you should buckle up and only use new-looking taxi cabs.
The best hotel in New Delhi near the airport is Andaz Delhi – A concept by Hyatt. Ideally located near a handful of iconic tourist destinations, it has both serviced apartments and traditional guestrooms.
Find one of the worlds best hotels in the bustling metropolis of Mumbai. The Oberoi Mumbai towers over the sea with sophisticated interior decorating making it a feast for the senses. Make use of the personalised butler service and a luxury in-house shopping arcade.
