Haha, it has always been a quest for me to try to get the local rate when i’m traveling in india. It happens sometimes but so very rarely. Good info though, I wonder how much it differs from a deal you could find on the street perhaps.
You can get better rates if you are somewhere further from such places as railway station or Taj Mahal western gate where are a lot of tourists. I paid Rs950 for A/C from Taj Mahal (South gate) to Fatehpur Sikri and then to Agra Fort. Prepaid rate would be about Rs300-500 more. But these official rates a good to know before starting negotiation as it is maximum rate drivers can expect to get.
Travelling by taxis costs from Rs 8 to 16 per km depending on the vehicle and the distance of your travel across India.
This is a nice compilation though and can be very helpful to visitors making short trips to Agra.
So you need to use google maps to measure the distance and then negotiate the price 🙂
Excellent information thanks for this. Do you mind if I link this on my website? It’s really useful.
