Tempted by the thought of a winter trip to India? The cost of travel there has fallen following the country's decision to launch of new e-visas. The price of US$60 - or about £40 - is more than than 50% less than than of the paper version. It's valid for citizens of the UK, US, and over 30 other countries. You need to apply at least four days before departure - and once you've been approved you can depart at any time in the following 30 days. Applications can be made at https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/index.html. The move has prompted tour operator Western & Oriental to launch four night short breaks in Mumbai, Delhi and Hyderabad at prices from £749, £849 and £999 per person respectively, based on two sharing.
