India Currency

The currency of India is the Rupee which is currently valued at 63.84 rupees to 1 USD. Be sure to check the conversion rate before all of your trips. There are ATMs in most towns; carry cash as a backup. MasterCard and Visa are the most widely accepted credit cards.

Tipping:

• A service fee is often added to your bill at restaurants and hotels, in which case tipping is optional. Elsewhere, a tip is appreciated.
• Hotel bellboys and train/airport porters appreciate anything around 50 Rupee; hotel staff should be given similar gratuities for services above and beyond the call of duty.
• If you hire a car with driver, a tip is fine for good service.
• Many Indians implore tourists not to hand out sweets, pens or money to children, as it encourages them to beg. To make a lasting difference, donate to a reputable school or charitable organization.
• Except in fixed-price shops (such as government emporiums and fair-trade cooperatives), bargaining is the norm.
