AVOIDING COMMON TOURIST SCAMS

PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW THE WAY TO THIRA

This scam is most often tried on visitors arriving first time in Shimla. The driver will say that he doesn’t know where Thira is (or that it’s full, or doesn’t exist) and offer to take you to another hotel, or a travel agent who can find you a hotel. Many people end up falling for this scam as they’re tired from their journey. Insist on going to Thira and check-in Google Maps if they’re dropping you near or at Thira.

MAKING YOU TALK TO SOMEONE AT THIRA

The driver will make you talk to someone pretending to be at Thira, who in turn will say that Thira is closed or the road is blocked.
