Car & Driver
Introduction
Even hardened travellers can find Sri Lankan roads a culture shock -- cyclists swaying across rush-hour traffic and cows ruminating in the middle of a main road. That makes Red Dot's Drivers' Code even more important in ensuring your travel is as safe and enjoyable as possible. You can read this code by following the click at the foot of this page.

Red Dot’s team of experienced drivers will make your safety and relaxation their chief concern. And their good English and extensive knowledge of the country enables them to double up as a tour guide, whenever requested, to make your holiday even more satisfying. Red Dot’s drivers know the special out-of-the-way places to make your holiday extra special. They can advise accurately on driving times to reduce the stress of travel to a minimum.

Car and minivan travel remains by far the most popular option for Red Dot travellers and you will be pleasantly surprised to find that you can book your own Red Dot car or minivan, with driver-cum-guide, without breaking your budget. If you would rather scramble an airport taxi, in the early hours of the morning, to take you to your first hotel, or adventure around Sri Lanka in packed, lurching public transport, then we are the first to admire your spirit. We’ve been there. We can’t match the prices on an old Sri Lankan service bus! But a Red Dot driver does not mean that you lose your independence – in fact it gives you maximum freedom to go where you want, when you want. And, in Sri Lanka, extra convenience comes at a price you can afford.

Characteristically, for Red Dot, we offer transfers when and where you need them: perhaps you just want to arrange airport transfers to ensure a cheery greeting at the end of a long flight? Or perhaps, if you are heading of on an island tours, you just want the car for part of the stay – releasing it, for example, during long beach stays, so ensuring that you are not paying for it to stand idle.
Our Cars
Red Dot offers three main basic vehicle types: a saloon car ideal for 2-3 people; a mini-van ideal for 4-6 people or smaller groups on an adventurous trip where poor roads are expected; or a 4WD jeep like our new Nissan X-Trails, which offers greater comfort and style on Sri Lankan country roads and its excellent handling, extra legroom, spacious luggage compartment, leather interior, sun roof and a host of extras ensures that your driving hours can be spent in maximum comfort.

Our Drivers’ Code

We believe that our pool of drivers is among the finest in the country – possessing a wealth of experience, knowledge and enthusiasm. To help uphold those standards, all drivers undertaking Red Dot transfers (except in emergency) will have a copy of the Red Dot drivers’ code. This code provides clear guidelines regarding passenger safety, mandatory security checks, the client-driver relationship, tipping and gifts, shopping and commissions, and itinerary flexibility.
