We arrive Delhi Airport Feb 13th. We don't like the chaos of obtaining a taxi at the airport.
We need to go to The Lemon Tree Hotel in Manesar. Could somebody please advise a good reliable driver/car who can meet us at arrivals clearly displaying our names so we can approach.
How much should the car/driver cost for this trip.
Perhaps you can ask your hotel to send a driver.. They can provide the cost for this service as well.
Have a nice visit.
I used thes people for a tour in Rajasthan and also a couple of side trips. You can contact them via the site and ask directly.

I have contacted my hotel re transfers. I am awaiting reply. I need a back up in case.
Once we get to the hotel we will not be needing transport.
Most of Indian airports have pre-paid taxi counters once you come out of immigration, best to take them. Or hotel can arrange reliable ones.
A Pre-paid taxi is what you need. There is a kiosk inside the airport building. You give them you address, pay them, and they give you a receipt voucher.
This is safest because you do not have to then pay the taxi driver one rupee more (unless you want to give a small tip if he helps with your luggage) IR20. is usually the tip I give
Got a reply from my hotel. Rupees 3200 one way. Appears expensive.
What would a pre paid taxi be approx, Delhi airport to Manesar.
And thank you to all those that suggested a pre paid taxi
Don't forget Manesar is 30 kms away from the airport, it's not an address in town. 44$ for that distance doesn't seem that excessive and the driver has to get back to Delhi for nothing.
You can check in google on prepaid taxi from delhi airport to manesar. Many websites suggest less than 500 Rupees. Hotel transports are reliable but expensive, but prepaid taxis from airport are tracked so less chance of getting cheated.
A Pre Paid taxi from Delhi airport to your destination should cost about $20.00
I got a suggestion from car rental company with driver (wiwigo) that I did not get to use because I ended up hiring another company that ended up not getting me at the airport for a Delhi-Agra trip (avoid Saavari Rentals)
Consult Wiwigo, because I liked the professionalism of the service and the price was very good. Always remember, in any case, India can give you surprises.
Another option is the pre paid taxi
We have decided we will use the pre paid taxi service. Thank's for all your help.
