Hello,

Tomorrow I will arrive at NDLS at 11.00am and my Indigo flight leaves at 15.20 to Calcutta then to Bangkok.

I am still quite weak from food poisoning and am traveling with heavy luggage.

What would be the easiest way to get myself to the airport link metro?

Is it standard that the Kuli will at least bring my luggage to the Airport link ticket window and from then on I am on my own?

Since I wish to plastic seal my big bag, I would probably prefer to check it at the airport and not at the airport link station.

I would be grateful for your recommendations.

If you have heavy luggage, take an Uber to T1d. From the airport metro you'd have to take a feeder bus to the terminal and as you're not well, that'd add to the exhaustion.

Thanks for your recommendation.

Doesn't the Über (actually I only have Ola) take quite a long time?

I am already worried in case the train is late that I won't be able to make the connection.

It's not peak hours so you should be fine. Have you looked at a map? And Uber is better than Ola.

I'm not too sure if 6E/Indigo has a checkin at NDLS. If you have not bought excess baggage/checkin baggage addon, you will have to do the checkin at the Checkin-counter at the terminal.

Uber & Ola have nearly the same response time, which could be few minutes at popular locations.

As VA has said, your bet is to take Ola. It will drop you at the curb.

And like VA says - Uber is a bit better than OLA. So if it is possible - do download Uber app and set up the account. Else OLA will do the job just as well.

Valid point.
So either you book the in prime (uber) or sedan (OLA).

But I thinks, and people around knows that I thinks a lot, being a single passenger - it shouldn't be an issue. You can always sit in the front and the entire back seat can become your storage space!

Thanks for your recommendations.

So I think I will take an Ola and the map shows me about 45 min for the ride.

My big bag is a kind of duffle bag which can be put upright in a seat, so I don't think that should be a problem.

Since my body temperature is still a bit high, that should be the most comfortable way.

Is there a special Ola point at NDLS, or what should I tell the Kuli where to drop me? I am not familiar with this station, I only know NZM.
