Travel from Delhi NZM station to International airprt

We will be arriving at the Delhi NZM station at about noon in a few weeks time. We will have smallish suitcases. We are trying to work out the best way to get to the airport.

Originally thought train was going to the New Delhi station and would then get the metro.

As the traffic appears to be very busy and NZM station is apparently not the easiest station to use what will be our best plan?

Fortunately our flight isn't until later in the evening.

We do have a bit of walking difficulty so can't walk for miles especially with cases!

Any advice welcome.

Thanks

If can use Uber then thats the best way,if not then take cab from railway station,hadnt used Nizamuddin for long time but there should be prepaid cab counter.

How do you get Uber? Is it by app? Also would it be better to get taxi to a metro station or alk the way to airport?

Best way is take of at New delhi railway station and take airport Metro. If you want to make a short tour of delhi because you have late evening flight, then hire a reliable driver services for the arrival at NZM rly stn and then local run around delhi till your departure and enjoy your time without any problems. Either use black and yellow taxi from the railway station and reach to airport.

Uber is app based cab service,if having smart fone with active network then best is to download it and install.

Jangpura metro station is close to Nizamuddin (less than 4km) but will involve 2 change,1st at mandi house and another at rajeev chowk to reach New Delhi to get airport express,and rajiv chowk remain crowded most of the time.

Nizamuddin to T3 is approx 25 km,if still wants to use metro then can take cab to Shivaji stadium (less than 10km) and then airport express metro to T3 @rs50 per head and take less than 19 min,this may save little time and money.

If flying domestic then Air India,Jet,Vistara and AirAsia India from T3 and Spice,Go,Indigo from T1 (and from 1st October few flights from T2 also).

Thank you for messages.

How long and how much is it likely to cost for taxi from NZM to international terminal at airport instead of using taxi then metro?

If we hire a driver for the afternoon where would be best place to visit? We have been to India Gate and driven round New Delhi on a previous visit.

Thanks for advice.

booking uber through the app is really easy and uber is the most popular car service in delhi. it would cost you about 300-400 rs to go from NZM to the airport. use uber pool since u have small suitcases if u want to cut the cost further. and if ur flight is in evening then i would suggest u go straight to humayun tomb from NZM and then to the airport. one place u should definitely not miss.

Hi

Best option will be to hire Ola / Uber cab but you need an indian moible sim for this.

Else you can hire Auto / Taxi from Station.

Hi

Thank you for that information. I am planning to buy an India SIM card on arrival at Delhi so should be able to downliad the Uber app.

Would the driver take us to the tomb and wait or should we call another Uber taxi?

Thanks again
