Three rules for travelling in India

1. Nothing is ever given for free, including help.

(If someone approaches you offering to help you cross the road, find a good spot for a photo, show you where to walk etc. generally they want money for it or they want to sell you something.)

2. Negotiate your price up front, and stick to it.

(Sometimes the price you negotiate at the start e.g. baggage handling or auto ride is not what is asked for at the end. Do not bend on the original price however pushy the demander may be.)

3. Count your cash as you hand it over.

(There are scammers who will use your unfamiliarity with the currency or busy service area pto their advantage. Counting your cash as you pay for the goods or services shows that you know exactly how much you are handing over.)
