The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
The success of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 paid testament to the passion held for cricket in South Asia. The One Day tournament was played out in front of raucous packed houses in impressive state-of-the-art venues that served to drive both Sri Lanka and India though to a final head-to-head in Mumbai.
And these lands are not finished holding world-class cricket entertainment yet. In 2012, Sri Lanka are all set to play host again to a key Test Match series and World T20 tournament. After the glory of a comprehensive Ashes win 'Down Under', the England side are out to hold top spot in the Test rankings and retain the World Twenty20 crown. But their credentials are due to face thorough examination during a winter on the subcontinent before they can lay claim to the title undisputed top dog.
Red Dot are primed to host you for all of the following up and coming tours. We specialize in individually tailor-made holidays to Sri Lanka and have proved ourselves as one of the leading cricket specialists in South Asia for both playing and spectator tours for over a decade.
Red Dot's Sri Lanka holidays and Sri Lanka tours are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority as long as you buy Sri Lanka flights from us. For full protection on your holiday to Sri Lanka, book your Sri Lanka flights with Red Dot as well as your Sri Lanka accommodation. Red Dot has the largest selection of Sri Lanka hotels, villas and guest houses at competitive prices and offers independent advice and flexible itineraries.
Given the interest in the England tour to Sri Lanka, we can offer accommodation and flight on a package basis however we are by no means limited to simply selling these. Don’t hesitate to be in touch to register your interest and we will assign a personal consultant to cater to all of your tailor made holiday queries and requirements, and alert you with the latest tour schedules and ticket updates as they are confirmed.
After an entertaining tour in 2007 and given the strong Anglo-Sri Lankan relations in our Colombo office(!), Red Dot is very much looking forward to England’s arrival in March 2012 for a 2 Test tour of the island. We are already filling rooms in Colombo and Galle’s most trusted hotels as we speak and the countdown to the tour has begun the tour. Please take advantage of our special rates with our favourite properties and access to the best match tickets.

Many of you have asked why we do not seek official status. We explain our policy below.
Red Dot has been running acclaimed tailor-made holidays in Sri Lanka since 2001.
Some clients booking holidays with us happen also to make independent arrangements to buy tickets for ICC cricket events. That is their choice and we do not become involved in those arrangements at any stage.
We are happy to accede to the ICC’s request that we state categorically that Red Dot cannot provide tickets for the 2012 World T20 because we have chosen not to apply for Official Agent status.
Neither will Red Dot offer cricket-related packages for this event.
Red Dot respects the ICC’s wish to provide secure and organized arrangements for cricket holidaymakers, and also entirely respects the professionalism of those companies officially appointed. However, we believe that this system contributed to over-pricing and low sales in the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean.
We believe that for a Sri Lanka specialist such as ourselves the ICC system limits choice and flexibility for our customers. Only by selling flights, accommodation and transport direct to the customer can we offer true value for money.
