The Indian Rupee is the official currency of India but can also be used in Nepal and Bhutan. The average traveller takes about £630 (about 58,000 INR) of Indian Rupees with them to India, but the Rupee is not widely stocked by bureaux de change in the UK so it is best to order them online.
ATM machines are common in India, but reports say that they are frequently out of order or out of money. If possible you should try to find an ATM inside a bank or atrium where you need to swipe your card to enter as these machines are usually in better condition and are well-stocked.
The 1,000 INR note is hard to break outside of banks. You should avoid these when buying your currency. Technically you should not take Rupees out of India, but there is very little enforcement of this in practice. There are plenty of opportunities to exchange rupees for Euros or Pounds before leaving India, but it might be difficult to sell any left-over Rupees when you arrive back here in the UK. Check out our list of currency buy back services for more information.
You need a visa to enter India and you must make sure you apply for the correct one depending on your reason for visiting the country. The Indian Visa website contains more information on the type of visa you'll need and how to apply.
In addition you should make sure any medication you take into the country with you is prescribed for you and in its original packaging. You may be asked to present the prescription as proof so you should take this with you too.
