Delhi Int airport rest

I am a 45+ Indian woman travelling alone from the US to Delhi via Bangkok. My flight arrives Delhi Int at midnight and my friends have arrannged for a rental car to take me to Dehradun. However, I am a bit leery of driving off at midnight. Is it safe to do so? If not, is there somewhere I can spend a few hours in a motel near the airport or even at the airport safely and drive off at 4 am. Travelling alone I have had some bad experiences around airports in India. Please advise!

You can stay at the airport for a few hours, there are comfortable seats and travel in the morning. The other option is a hotel, however if it is only for a few hours it may not be worth it.

Staying at the airport until 5:00 a.m. is a safe option, although you will not be comfortable. There might be mosquitoes, so take some repellent in any case.

If you're not on a budget, get a hotel room, and ask the hotel to pick you up.
