Trust our experts to design your perfect Sri Lanka holiday
The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Trust Red Dot’s expert team of chauffeur-guides to ensure that when you hire a car and driver in Sri Lanka your safety and comfort is taken seriously.
Travelling by car or minivan is the easiest and most comfortable way to explore Sri Lanka. Yet even hardened travellers can find it a culture shock – cyclists swaying across rush-hour traffic, trishaws weaving between lanes and even, in more rural areas, cows ruminating in the middle of a main road.
Red Dot drivers 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 you wish, to make your holiday even more satisfying.
They also know the special out-of-the-way places to make your holiday extra special and can advise accurately on driving times to reduce the stress of travel to a minimum.
We firmly believe that our pool of chauffeur-guides is the best in the country, possessing a wealth of experience, knowledge and enthusiasm, and they are consistently praised in our customer feedback reviews.
All Red Dot chauffeur-guides follow a strict Drivers’ Code to ensure that your time travelling around Sri Lanka is as safe and enjoyable as possible.
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 chauffeur-guide, without breaking your budget.
If you would rather adventure around Sri Lanka in packed, dangerous public transport, then we admit it, we’ve been there.
But a Red Dot driver does not mean that you lose your independence – in fact it gives you maximum time and freedom to go where you want, when you want.
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 tour, 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.
We also accept transport-only bookings, so you can hire one of Red Dot’s drivers even if you have already arranged the rest of your holiday independently – although our prices are so competitive they may surprise you.
Red Dot's fleet is led by our own pool of Mercedes Vans and Honda CRV SUVs, backed up by regularly-serviced independently-owned vehicles.
We offer three main basic vehicle types:
We can also offer luxury vehicles and minibuses and coaches on request.
Red Dot selects only the best accommodation in Sri Lanka, in its particular price range. Please suggest which of the three categories might most appeal to you. (You can tick more than one box).
