Our Flexible Hire

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.

Our Vehicles

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:

  • A car ideal for 2-3 people
  • A mini-van ideal for 4-6 people
  • An SUV which offers greater comfort and style for travelling along Sri Lankan country roads

We can also offer luxury vehicles and minibuses and coaches on request.
