    I have a train journey booked from Delhi to Jammu for myself and my mother. Our train arrives at night in Jammu, and we would stay in Jammu for the night.
    Our main destination is Katra Vaishno Devi, so from Jammu, we need to get to Katra. Both of us are not fans of traveling in a bus, so we are considering getting a taxi.

    We would like to find out what the Jammu to Katra taxi fare would be so that we can prebook the taxi before our journey starts from Delhi.

    I am also trying to get a rough idea of the taxi fare prices around the big cities in India. I will not be hiring a car when I go there because I might have a bit of trouble getting around an unfamiliar city, not to mention that the driving laws might be a bit different from what I'm used to. So I have decided that when I visit India I will be using mostly taxis to get around. I 'm not sure if we will be able to get around on the trains and buses without getting lost.
