===By Car===
Many online cab hire services are now extensively serving major cities in India like North India Car Renta, Rajasthan Cab, Vayu Travels, Travelocar Car Rental, Owic Car Rental, Best Way Cabs, JKS Travels, [https://www.megacabs.com/delhi Mega Cabs], Amy CAB, Uber, Japji travel, Delhi Oneway Cab, My Tempo Traveller, [https://tempotravellerjaipur.in Tempo Traveller Jaipur], UberX are in fact more reliable, cheaper, and more pleasant than dealing with (and haggling with) unscrupulous/overeager/bothersome taxi drivers or autorickshaw drivers. You can get in by cabs and this is the safest way to get in if you want to avoid bus services in Delhi.
===By bus===
====Hazrat Nizamuddin====
'''Hazrat Nizamuddin''' (code ''NZM'') is the departure point of many trains heading south. Practically speaking, the only way to get here is by taxi or car(now there is metro connectivity). The budget alternative is to take a bus to the Sarai Kale Khan Inter State Bus Terminal (ISBT) on the ring road and then walk over to the station (400 m). It's the least chaotic of the ''Big Three'', but still pretty big and poorly signposted; listen to the announcements to figure out your train. The station has a pretty good food court that sells inexpensive, hygienic takeaway snacks including sandwiches and samosas.
If you have some time to kill, pay a visit to Humayun's Tomb, which is so close to the station that you can hear the announcements from inside — although it's a long, circuitous walk from the station to the entrance.

===By auto rickshaws===
====By car====
Hiring a car is not a good option for most foreigners as most Delhiites have no sense of road rules. It is much easier to [https://www.toursandtaxi.com/car-rental-services/car-rental-delhi/ hire a car and a driver ] to get around. Yet if you are adventuruosus adventurous you may hire a car and drive yourself. One rule to be careful about is the odd even rule. Due to high levels of pollution the Delhi Government has decided to impose a car rationing policy in which only even cars are allowed to ply on even days and vice versa for odd. This rule is introduced for a stretch of 15 days. A hefty fine of ₹2000 is enforced on violators. Read local newspaper and pay attention to the numerous hoardings around the city publicising the rule. It is well publicised and you are sure to hear of it when it is being enforced.

* '''Bahá'í Lotus Temple''' Kalkaji, South Delhi, [http://bahaindia.org/temple/index.html]. Shaped like a lotus bud with 27 petals, this stunning temple suspended above milky-blue ponds is surely one of the most magnificent monuments ever made from concrete, however there is very little to see inside.

Some are better priced than others, and you can bargain a little. Many of them will take credit cards.
* '''Dilli Haat''', South Delhi (''INA Market stn, Metro Yellow Line''). Crafts fairs happen here every week. It is a wonderful place to get crafts from all over the country. What is distinctive here is that the artists themselves come to sell their goods, so your money goes directly to them, rather than to middlemen. Some bargaining may be necessary if you want the best price. Prices are higher than elsewhere, but the modest entry fee keeps out beggars, ripoff artists, and most touts. Many visitors find the mellow atmosphere worth the extra cost of shopping here. It also has a section called Foods of India. This has a huge number of restaurants, each showcasing the food of a particular state of India. (Most of them give a mix of Chinese and Indian food, but state delicacies are also included). This section is a must-go for the foodie-cum-tourist. Please beware about fake Delhi haats usually taxi drivers will take for commission . Prices will be very high & goods not worth. There are only few authentic.

Many first time travellers to India find themselves falling victim to [[Common scams|scams and touts]], and unfortunately Delhi has a lot of both. Be on guard for anybody trying to help you by giving you unsolicited directions or travel advice. Do not believe the advice of taxi and auto drivers. If this is your first time to India, do not openly admit it, as this will make you more vulnerable to touts.
If you are arriving into Delhi at night it may be advisable to either stay in the airport lounge or well lit areas until daybreakif you haven't booked a hotel and if this is your first trip to Delhi. Women should avoid walking around alone in the night or in lanes without many people and be cautious when hiring cabs aloneat night. Radio taxis are a safer option. Dress conservatively. Please don't let go of your commonsense. Don't be afraid to raise your voice or shout, if harassed.
Carry your cash, passport, and cards in a secure money belt, with only enough cash for a few hours at a time in your wallet or other accessible place. Some travelers recommend carrying an expendable wallet with a few ten rupee notes in it in an obvious place such as your hip pocket as a decoy to Delhi's ubiquitous pickpockets.
