How it works:
- Version 1: claim a place is closed and bring you somewhere else where they get commission.
- Version 2: or they send you to a fake information tourist counter which propose tours and accommodation at inflated prices.
- Version 3: drive you somewhere secluded, and then demand a higher payment.
Places to beware:
- Mumbai: Gateway of India, Marine Drive
- Srinagar: Sonamarg
What to do:
- Avoid taking unless for short rides and negotiate a fee first (currency, per ride, duration).
