Driver and Car Hire

Custom design your perfect road trip in Sri Lanka, wherever you like, however you like. It's simple: decide on the length of your trip, hire a knowledgeable local driver with a car and you're all set! You can let them know your itinerary in advance, or ask them to show you the nooks and crannies of Sri Lanka that few travellers have encountered. They can even help you arrange the other logistics of your trip, such as book train tickets. All the drivers here have been personally vetted by us, so go ahead, book them for a day or ten!


There is no minimum or maximum amount of time of hire. You can hire a driver and a car for a day, two days or ten days - all up to you!

There are three main differences between the options listed here.

(1) Distance cap - except for Sanjeewa and Jagath Kumara, all the drivers have a cap on the distance covered each day (after which, an additional charge will be incurred). Do let us know if you have any questions on your intended route, and whether additional charges may be incurred.

(2) Additional guide services - a few of the drivers are certified local guides as well as drivers. Going with a certified local guide will help you understand Sri Lanka better, and they will also be able to show you some special places!

(3) Driver accommodation cost - note that all the options (except for RD Expeditions) include driver accommodation in the quoted price. As RD Expeditions does not include driver accommodation in the price, this will add to your per day cost (approximately US$ 7.50 to US$ 10 where driver accommodation is not complimentary).

This is incredibly flexible - start your trip anywhere, for however long you like, and go wherever you like in Sri Lanka. Your driver can pick you up from any place in Sri Lanka, and drop you off at a place of your choice. If you wish, they can also help you plan your itinerary, make any required bookings (from hotels to train tickets), and provide any local travel tips that you need.

Once you have booked a driver here, we will be in touch to custom-design your perfect road trip with you.

    These are typically the cars that the local drivers use - depending on your group size:

  • 1-3 persons: Toyota Axio¬†or Honda Shuttle.
  • 4-6 persons: Toyota KDH van.
  • For groups larger than 6 persons please check with us.
