How to Reach Delhi

How to get there by Air

Being the Gateway to India and its capital city, Delhi is served by two airports to the southwest of the centre. The spanking new Indira Gandhi International Airport -Terminal 3, 26 kms from Connaught Place receives all the international flights and many domestic flights as well. Pre-paid taxi services, auto rickshaws, the Delhi metro and airport-city buses are available round the clock to get to the city. You could have a rented car meet you on arrival or ask your hotel to arrange a pick up.

Terminal 1 D is where some low cost domestic carriers take off from and land. Pre-paid taxis are available at the domestic airport, besides auto rickshaws and bus service outside. There is a free shuttle service between the domestic and international airports.

How to get there by Rail

The two major railway stations of Delhi are the New Delhi Station close to Connaught Place, and Old Delhi Station in the congested Old Delhi area. New Delhi station is within walking distance of cheaper hotels around Paharganj and the central shopping and business district. Old Delhi station is connected to Connaught Place by buses, taxis or autorickshaws. Both stations have overwhelming crowds and unscrupulous touts. Be careful with your baggage.

The quieter Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station in south Delhi gets south-bound trains and the fast trains to Agra, among others.

How to get there by Road

Delhi is very well connected by road to the neighbouring states. The main bus stand is at Inter-State Bus Terminus (ISBT), close to Old Delhi railway station. All inter-state buses terminate and begin from here. Private buses pull in at the New Delhi Railway Station near Connaught Place. The Sarai Kale Khan Bus stand adjacent to the Hazrat Nizamuddin Station serves those bus routes headed south out of Delhi city.
