Exchanging currency at Delhi Airport

Having access to local currency (Indian Rupee) is the first and foremost important item a foreign traveler would need starting from the airport.

In the arrival section (Terminal 3) of the Delhi airport, there are currency exchange counters between immigration and customs area.

The 3 currency exchange counters are by:

  1. Punjab National Bank
  2. Central Bank of India
  3. Thomas Cook.

All the 3 counters are open 24 hours.

Difference: Though the exchange rates offered by all the three exchangers may be the same but Thomas Cook will charge fees.

Make sure that you ask for Central Bank of India’s counter since they are not as strategically located as Thomas Cook and Punjab National Bank.

You can use the Airport’s interactive map to see where the currency exchange counters are located.

Entry India's Recommendation: Currency exchange rate at the airport is always lower than what you can get in the city.  So, get your foreign currency exchanged to little over what you require at the airport and when you are in the city visit branch of any bank or authorized non-banking exchangers to get the rest of foreign currency converted to India Rupees.
