I would recommend it to a friend for sure–in fact, I already have! The first phone they gave me didn’t work well at all–I think it was defective. However, they quickly replaced it (went out of their way to deliver it), and once they did, everything was smooth sailing. The phone wasn’t high-end, but functional (I’m an iphone user though, so i think I’m spoiled). It’s very helpful to have a wireless hot spot when traveling in india because wifi is not very available. The phone Trabug gave me was AWESOME for that, since cell service is good pretty much throughout Northern india where I traveled. I was even able to make FaceTime audio calls (and sometimes video) home to my loved ones in the states from everywhere–hotel rooms, buses, walking down the street etc. Plus, being able to use my personal iPhone was great, since the android given wasn’t super high end (touches not as responsive, etc.). PLUS: The price is very much worth it, especially with the service. And at the end, they picked up the phone from the hostel where i stayed my last night. All i had to do was give them the address, and leave it in the hostel lock box in the provided Trabug envelope. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.” Alan Ashbaugh U.S.A.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE SERVICES IN INDIA - DOS AND DON’TS

If you are planning a travel abroad soon, you definitely must have made those currency calculations. You must be also wondering of how you will manage arranging foreign exchange and what all could you go through? Well, here are some sure things we can pinpoint in order to prepare you for your travel to INDIA. As per the guidelines of Reserve bank Of India (Central Bank Of India), a foreign tourist may carry along with him/her indian currency upto Rs. 5,000 from any country other than Nepal or Bhutan, and any amount in denomination not exceeding Rs.100 from Nepal or Bhutan. A person coming into India from abroad can bring with him foreign exchange without any limit provided if foreign currency notes, or travellers cheques exceed US$ 10,000/- or its equivalent and/or the value of foreign currency exceeds US$ 5,000/- or its equivalent, it should be declared to the Customs Authorities at the Airport in the Currency Declaration Form (CDF), on arrival in India. Go light on the cash. It is actually better to only carry 20% or less of your decided amount in cash.Therefore, get cash only when required. One should ideally follow the 20/80 ratio or the 30/70 ratio. Foreign currency exchange from airport may result in one paying commissions as high as 10 to 15 percent and therefore, exchanging at airports is not a great idea. Mahesh Iyer, senior vice-president and head of foreign exchange at Thomas Cook (India) has advised passengers to carry currency of the country they are headed to, so as to save on currency conversion charges abroad.
