The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Getting around Sri Lanka can be a challenge but Red Dot's careful itinerary planning and rich range of transport options can ease the burden and ensure you enjoy your stay to the full. Although the country is only roughly the size of Ireland, journeys in Sri Lanka can be made difficult by a number of factors: a limited number of major roads; minor roads of poor quality; heavy traffic; and the central position of the island’s highlands which makes crossing from east to west, or north to south, more convoluted than one might expect when first glancing at the map. Misjudging journey times, or the best time to travel, is a common mistake made by travellers to Sri Lanka, but whether you prefer to travel by chauffeur-driven car, take an internal flight or join the fun on our Red Dot Hopper bus service, we have the solution for you. By far the most comfortable and convenient solution for travelling in Sri Lanka is to hire a car and driver, and we firmly believe that our pool of Sri Lanka chauffeur-guides is the best in the country. Red Dot does not recommend driving in Sri Lanka unless you have experience driving in other Asian countries where the traffic, roads and conduct of other drivers are similar. For those on a tighter budget, our Sri Lanka hop-on, hop-off bus service – beginning in November 2020 – offers six popular tourist routes across the island, offering you the chance to meet like-minded travellers and share stories and insights about your Sri Lanka discoveries. Internal flights around Sri Lanka are a great solution for our luxury travellers to reduce long journey times and helicopter transfers are also available. Don’t forget, too, that Red Dot can also book your international flights – ensuring for UK customers that you receive full ATOL protection on your holiday. Sri Lanka is also home to one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world, and there is always a clamour for train tickets if clients are heading into the heart of the hill country. Whichever way you like to travel around Sri Lanka, Red Dot has the perfect solution.
Red Dot is renowned for having the best drivers in Sri Lanka.
