Before proceeding to the check-in counters, have your own valid passport, valid visa if necessary and air ticket ready. If you have an e-ticket, bring along a print-out of your e-ticket.
All checked baggage will be screened by airport security. Passengers should not pack any weapons, combustible items, and explosive materials, toxic or other dangerous substances in to their check-in baggage. Passengers may be required to have their checked baggage undergo further security screening if deemed necessary.
All passengers should check that they are issued with the correct boarding passes and that their travel documents are in order before leaving the check-in counter.
JW Marriott is about 36 kms from the airport.

The city railway station is 4.2 kms from JW Marriott. You will have to get out of the station from platform number one and reach the prepaid taxi stand and hire a city taxi (costs about 100 INR).
Or, you can take a 'pre-paid' auto from the counter located outside the exit gate of platform number 6. The prepaid autos is the best deal given the options available. The landmark is UB City. You can request them to drop you at the JW Marriott Hotel.

Auto-rickshaws are everywhere at any time of day. They are yellow three wheeled contraptions that use simple two-stroke engines and are a fast way to get around the city. Autos are supposed to charge according to the meter, and you should simply refuse to board one where the meter is faulty or the driver refuses to use it. Saying "meter please" will usually do the trick. For a ride from Bangalore Bus Stand ( Majestic / Railway Station ) the fare should be Rs. 70. You can also avail the services of Prepaid counters to hire one. Prepaid counters are located in many parts of the city - MG Road, Majestic etc.
The taxis in Bangalore are convenient and comfortable. Most of the vehicles are Maruti Omni Vans or Tata Indica cars, which are much safer than auto-rickshaws. If you are alone or going to an unknown destination, you are advised to choose this option, even though the rates will be double that of an auto. Most taxi companies will charge a flat rate for a pick-up and drop from anywhere to anywhere within city limits. Waiting or return trips will be charged extra, as will a lot of heavy luggage.
