    Tips for living in Bangalore :

  • Local Transportation - Local Transportation in Bangalore is very good, however traffic can at time be impossible due to congestion, pollution and risky. Therefore, the use of taxis or Autoriksha's is a cheap option. Tell the driver your destination and negotiate your price upfront or ask to see their tariff card first. People who don't do this often get cheated on the fair.
  • Get registered with a Doctor – We advice you to get a health insurance through private health insurance. Almost all reputed health insurance companies have tie up with good hospitals. Get registered with a doctor in your neighbourhood.
  • Be a savvy shopper - Get to know what locals pay for daily household needs, clothing or furniture. The prices are often different for locals vs. expats. Many people still believe all expats are rich and deserve to pay twice as much for what they want. Know what things cost and ask to the 'Local Pricing' for things.
