I would pre-arrange a car and driver with your hotel. The scene at the airport is somewhat chaotic so you will want someone to meet you as you come out of customs and help you with your bags. Any extra cost will be worth it IMO.

The easiest and safest way to get from the airport to the city is to arrange transport ahead of time from your hotel (some hotels provide this service for free). Alternatively, pay for a taxi at the prepaid taxi booths in the international terminal (it is advised to to check your change). The number of the taxi assigned to you will be on the receipt. Then, go straight through the airport and turn right immediately outside the front doors and someone will help you find your taxi. There are several options, but the booth operated by the "Delhi Police" is considered the best, with non-A/C taxis to most points in the city Rs.200-300

Very easy to do the prepaid taxi as the last entry described. On my first trip I had a taxi arranged but on a recent trip I used the prepaid taxi which was very easy and I didn't find it hectic there at all.
