In Madras (Chennai), the domestic terminal and the
international terminal are adjacent buildings. They have very simple
structure with only exit (one exit for international and one exit for
domestic). In the international terminal after clearing customs you
will see the exit doot and as soon as you exit, you may look for
"ASIACRYPT - Hi Tours" desk. The people at the desk will assist you
with information / guidance / transport.
1) Pre paid taxi system : In Indian Airports, you will notice "Pre
Paid Taxi" counters where you pay in advance for the taxi (in Indian
Rupees) and avail the taxi service. You need not pay anything to the
driver but tipping 20 rupees is appropriate. The taxi charges to the
hotel will be around Rs.300-315 by A/C car and around 250 by non A/C
cars. We recommend you to take A/C cars. The details of distance,
charges etc are uploaded in the homepage now. The current conversion
rate for 1 US Dollar is 45.75 Indian Rupees.
2) Hi-Tours themselves offer taxi services (by better cars). Their charges are Rs.350 for Non A/C cars and Rs.475 for A/C cars. Thus the charges will be in the range from 7 to 11 US dollars, depending on the service you choose. Most hotels are situated within 15-17 Kms from the airport.
Kindly note that this rate is per car and not per person. So pooling can be done if you so desire.
