 Getting About in Sri Lanka

 
Until recently Sri Lanka's main way of getting around is by a vehicle or private helicopter. But today, Sri Lankan Airlines has introduced Air Taxi to Bentota, Koggala, Dickwella, Kandy and Ampara. Currently there are schedule flights to Bentota, Koggala and Dickwella only.
 
It is possible to rent a car in Sri Lanka but we advise against it as the roads are poor and the driving conditions are challenging. Cars, busses, animals and people all use a single carriage road. Moreover, it is very economical to hire a driver in Sri Lanka to travel about in Sri Lanka, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the journey. Our tourist board approved English speaking drivers and not just drivers, they are qualified guides who possess an extensive knowledge of the country enabling them to double up as tour guides. We offer several vehicle types to hire in Sri Lanka for your convenience: a saloon car ideal for 2-3 people; a mini-van ideal for 4-6 people or a 4WD jeep for a more comfortable travel experience.
 
Also, many of our customers enjoy doing part of their tour by train. The best scenic train journey in Sri Lanka is the train journey between Colombo and Badulla which stops at Kandy and Nuwara Eliya. Most visitors take the Kandy - Nuwara Eliya or Nuwara Eliya - Colombo journey. The train journey from Nuwara Eliya to Kandy or Colombo makes an interesting alternative to the car. The journey time is much the same, but the scenery is even more spectacular. Travel in the 1st class observation car is highly recommended, and if possible on an InterCity Express train. You can reserve seats through Elegant Travels and arrange for your driver to follow the train with your luggage so you don't have to worry about hauling it all on board.
