uvchsvzlcgjdd just arrived in Chennai, , #india
dhmfpdeqqryzumb3mo
We're in Bangalore, and trying to get a driver up to Mysore for a 1 way trip. The taxi booking sites require a 15% deposit (which is fine), but won't accept non-Indian card. Any thoughts on another approach?
hwbymralxctplml3mo
Uber won't work for us as a lot of longer jobs (1+ hour) seem to get declined, and we need to arrive in Mysore with a 1 hour leeway
cfvkjmqkoitfmxg3mo
Hiring a driver for 3 days. All fixed.
cfdptazjgjyc3mo
For anyone else looking it's ~ RS. 7855 for a dedicated driver for 3 days, that includes up to 675km of driving on www.savaari.com/outstation-taxi/car-rentals. They're really nice on the phone & sent a payment link that worked with a UK Amex - then said to call back to get the deposit waived if our international deposit didn't work.

vajkskyfqyqcr just arrived in ๐Ÿ› Mumbai, #india
fokrtkhxji2mo
snqgszfrd I bought them on Amazon before I left. Online sites might be best bet. Or hardware stores. 3M makes good ones that aren't too expensive.
fpudutrd2mo
what about internet, will 4g be ok?
cxjxhwfr2mo
4G is good and extremely cheap. But getting one is peak bureaucratic hell. Avoid small mobile shops, choose official Airtel/IDEA shops and take your passport, accomodation details and a phone number from somebody working at your airbnb/hotel.

Or avoid all of this and buy a tourist sim from the airport. Costs 3x more (still vaguely cheap) but you worth it to avoid the hassle.
adtrmdwo2mo
thanks for the tips mhgunqnxu
jfvxoqwgbil2mo
the sims at the airport are roaming sims from countries like thailand
befermomfdd2mo
so the minutes and data runout pretty quick
vjiihrnwauh2mo
(at least from my experience)
mhqfwoedjgr2mo
def recommend airtel though for service
iykljipw2mo
yep stick with airtel. they have kiosks that sell official airtel sims at the airport
ubegypulnke2mo
Anyway to get otp for an indian number done online?
qfffmewz2mo
you could rent a virtual number online
ankyswjlfus2mo
How
xykxkacoinkt2mo
I got an Indian Sim at the airport for 1350 ruppes for 3 months, I got unlimited calls/texts & 1.5GB of data a day
qanutmsswkfk2mo
I didn't have a photo (which you need to get a sim) so it went from 900 to 1350, and when I went to the Vodafone store in the city with my husband so he could get one they tried to add him to my account as friends&family, then it turned out my account was registered in a different name. They didn't take it off me though & it's worked great for the last 5 weeks so I can't complain really.
bzvxadmvyiyj2mo
Skype maybe? Works for a UK number.
jodjgixr2mo
google virtual number india
ubmvebhm2mo
1.5gb a day? Does anyone know the largest capacity available?
dciggx2mo
You can get a 750 GB plan ๐Ÿ˜„
dindrl2mo
(not per day that one tho)
cavbsa2mo
I got my sim card at the airport in Mumbai for 1000 INR. The guy took a photo with this mobile of me and did all the paper work, took a bit, but then I was all set already. Would recommend to spend the few bucks more and get it at the airport.
pamomhkh2mo
750gb is enough for 6months ๐Ÿ˜‚
lmndvqnn2mo
How many gb did you get for 1000inr?
stceil2mo
1.4GB per day. The package itself cost actually 249 INR, I believe.
alesmz2mo
Yeah, never seen such large data packages anywhere else in the world. Nor this cheap.
ilpcbaf2mo
yeah, JIO has created new milestones for every company in the world to get angry and dream on - but they will start charging higher soon once customers are acquired well, enjoy this time ๐Ÿ™‚
nsdxtk2mo
Iโ€™m with Airtel, apparently best network for data
mxfdlsl2mo
Anyone stayed in Bandra West in Mumbai? Thought it would be good fit for me but Iโ€™m not sure where exactly should I stay within this area if I want to be close to the interesting part of it and also have a good gateway to the city center.
lqgqhpc2mo
How did you transport from there to the city center? I heard the trains can be a pain
zcrlyenhqnj2mo
What are you guys doing in India? Just visiting or business too?
sxtjtp2mo
Enjoying life ๐Ÿ™‚

Does anyone know if you can buy Ventolin inhalers (Salbutamol) over the counter in India?

Donโ€™t really want to go to a doctor and my lungs are struggling a bit

I don't know but please update when you find out so I know how organised I need to be if I run short!
stuobnjtv2mo
kmehniiwluova I was able to walk into a chemist and buy it for 139 rupees. It took all of 3 minutes.

It wasnโ€™t Ventolin. It was another brand (donโ€™t have it with me so donโ€™t know the name), but it says _salbutamol_ and thatโ€™s all that matter to me ๐Ÿ˜€

Drone laws are getting relaxed in India and starting January 13, drone registration is mandatory and its free of charge.
jwfejd14d
My drone shipment had been blocked at customs a few years ago ๐Ÿ˜ž do those laws change now?
dlxbzpfszpoj14d
As far as I remember they made drones legal in first half of 2019 but with lot of regulations and now they have relaxed it to an extent where consumers like us can use it easily for photography or hobby.

So, yes, I think we can import it like any other item
pmhkmhphokdu14d
eqopwx14d
That sounds great!! Gotta read up some more before I order another one. I lost $600 last time. Cant be too cautious :neutral_face:

Or...I wonder if the new laws would make decent drones available within India. Wouldnt need to have it imported, in that case ๐Ÿค”
ftceumxdpubb14d
Actually one of the reason for relaxing the law is to setup drone manufacturing in India like iPhones
ktixhjngyary14d
IMHO getting dji or ziyun to manufacture it here would take more than an year
lyovwxkycyqg14d
But at least itโ€™s a good start
enusgjdskksh14d
Until then drones will be expensive due to the duty.
tdjsgz14d
Definitely a HUGE step in the right direction
uuaehvn1d
Anyone around in Goa ?
qagjmlrmkcsqiqdj1d
We head to Goa in a week or so.

check out nomadgao , the new coworking space by mayur, a good friend of mine and it's growing well if you need a community space
zgitksxhx1d
Can vouch for NomadGao
yvooademo1d
A nice little coworking space and Mayur is great. Pretty central to everything too
vudosrcmtqocfcgm1d
Anyone try the Goa miles app?
ivoehdcb16h
don't expect Uber/Ola quality, but it works pretty well as long as you stick to populated areas. support staff also speak English if you need
