Early morning DEL airport arrival

Hello,

I am travelling to New Delhi in January of 2019 and I arrive at the airport at approximately 4:00 am. Any suggestions on where to wait until I can check in to my hotel at 13:00?

Is there a luggage locker or lounge at the airport I can pay to access?

Thank you very much for any advice or suggestions you can provide?

In all my years of travel (in India and elsewhere) I have never not encountered a hotel that won't hold my bags until I can check in. Ditto at check-out. If in doubt, email them and ask.

Yes, but I’ve had bad experiences where luggage isn’t always stored securely and things go damaged or missing.

Also, is there anything open that early I can do? Any places open 24 hrs?

Thanks!

Hi,

Wish to inform you that in January, there is a lot of fog in Delhi in the early morning, so please make sure that there is clear visibility before you step out of the airport. The fog condition might hamper any sightseeing plans at that time. It will be better if you book a hotel in the Aerocity near the airport, or a guest house in Gurgaon, which is also very near the airport, where you can check in on arrival, and later shift to your hotel in the city at the appointed time. Hope this helps you.

Thanks

Hi SFOTraveler1113,

Welcome to the forum !!!

During January cold will be challenge for you and as you have more than 8 hours so we will suggest you to ask your hotel for early check Inn, I am sure they will provide you early check Inn and take some nominal charges from you.

Regards,

Jitender

Check with your hotel they may have some early check in options. Else you can try travel lounges on the airport itself.
