If you are going to India, you need to know! The demonetisation of ₹500 and ₹1,000 banknotes was a policy enacted by the Government of India on 8 November 2016 just before tourist season. Problem is that guesthouses, hotels, tourist sights, restaurants, buses and taxis do not have facilities to accept card payments.There are very few places that take them unless you are staying at a top hotel, which I am not.
Take always cash with you!!! Because daily withdrawal limit is 2,000 rupees and it is hard to find an ATM that is open and has money and the ones that do have cash have long queues. We had a big problem with the cash - 4 ATM we tried in our small city and all of them was empty or did not accepting our card. And it was not funny anymore because we need to pay for our gasthouse and they wanted to accept only cash.
Thanks Azimo (it is an online remittance service) Maybe it will be helpful for you! The quick, easy and fast way to send money to any bank. Thanks God they was good to us and it was the good decision to transfer the money.
Everyone is totally occupied with this ridiculous situation - you have money but can't pay. I hope it will be better in the future.
One more advice - read always about the current situation in the country before you go:)
