We will still brief you the little Do’s and Don’ts of planning luxury vacations in India

Start with the bare basics. No amount of research is enough when scouting for that perfect Indian tour operator

Do not fall for sugar coated promises, do not fall for fake online reviews by shady, made up names like Sam Jackson Brad Sean, do not share personal details – whatever you do, do not send any advance payments until absolutely sure. 

Remember, India is a big market travel wise. There is no dearth of vendors and if lucky (read persistent) you may land up an unbelievably profitable deal. A number of travel companies may try to convince you to make a part payment so that they may bag you the “Best Deal’.

Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Having arrived in India, insist on employing only registered vendors. 

Ask your travel agent to send you scanned PDFs of the certifications of each vendor – the cab service, the caterer, independent spas, restaurants etc. 

There is a high chance he may not be able to send you the same; but at least he’ll know you mean business and are fussy about the quality of service rendered.

Since this is a luxury tour we’re talking about, do not throw a fit if you have to shell out a few bucks extra to get things done in India. 

Here, a $2 “bakshish” (financial token of gratitude or appreciation) goes a long way and may even save the day for you.
