Meru has never let me down. Especially when the booking was for early morning.

How early can the booking be made ?
I guess 24 hours prior to journey ?

I don't know the threshold. In my case cab booking is in the checklist I execute on the day prior.

My guess is that previous day booking is just fine in that it gives them time to plan capacity.

OK spoke too soon. Had a booking for this morning (the big 6-seater vehicle). When I checked at 5.45 the booking was nowhere to be found. The link in the confirmation SMS said this:

My guess is that driver assigned couldn't prove vaccination status, so they silently cancelled.

Had to drive myself to the airport because it was too late to think of plan B.

Their app goes all the way 1 month ahead.

Their website was acting weird both on desktop and mobile so could not complete the booking. I had to install and use the app, it worked well. Since I booked 2 days in advance, got an sms confirmation immediately after booking and then 30 minutes prior to scheduled ride, got an sms with driver details and tracking link.

After Court order, stringent mask rule enforcement at airports and in flights
Source: NDTV

Quote:
Excerpt:

In its order today, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation said": The Airline shall ensure that in case any passenger does not adhere to instructions even after repeated warnings, he/she should be de-boarded, if need be, before departure."… In case any passenger on board an aircraft refuses to wear mask or violates the "COVID-19 Protocol for passengers" even after repeated warnings, during the course of the flight, such passenger may be treated as "Unruly Passenger."

Which website has the most up-to-date information on Vayu Vajra schedules? Alternatively, if someone has the most recent information (say, photo clicked at a bus stop) can they PM me? TIA.

Chennai Airport Cab Services

Asking for an incoming foreign visitor: Do the cab companies at Chennai airport accept card payment?

I don't remember. I've always got cash anyway. And I've advised them to use ATM or FX service inside airport to get cash at least for first couple of days anyway.

But hey, I promised them I'd enquire.

The prepaid cab counter at the Domestic Arrivals does. No clue about the International Terminal.
