Бюджетное такси в аэропорту Коломбо, Шри-Ланка Budget taxi at Colombo airport

Taxi Sri Lanka is the most convenient way of traveling across the country. Here, of course, there is air transport, trains and buses, but this convenience and speed as a taxi, does not provide any of them. Yes, just imagine, but to fly from one part of the country to another will take time in most cases even more than to cover the distance by taxi. That is why when planning to travel to Sri Lanka should consider the option, to at least take a taxi from the airport to destinations and back. Even for budget travelers, especially groups of several people, this option is not heavily hit on the wallet, but will save a lot of time and nerves.

Taxi in Sri Lanka, by the way, is of several types. A regular taxi is presented in the form of cars, and for groups of 5 people offered minivans Seating up to 12 passengers. And in recent years began to gain the popularity of the new budget taxi on small cars for two people. Trip to Budget Taxi will cost about 30% cheaper than usual.

And of course don't ignore the ubiquitous tuk-tuks; the journey costs about a third lower than car taxis. In addition, in most regions of the country car taxis are not represented, and there the only choice is for the tuk-tuks.

Ordering a taxi in the resorts or from airport is fixed price, but you can always bargain. It is important to discuss the price and make sure that we are talking about the RS for all passengers, not per person. Tricks with a difference in price of $ 50 instead of 15, or 500 rupees instead of 50 is not uncommon. To avoid such troubles, and indeed save, it is best to use the order through the Uber app or local with Pick Me. Better still home to install both applications. For their work need mobile Internet, but you can use free WiFi in the airport, hotels and cafes. Read more about Uber and PicMe on Sri Lanka here...

When traveling by taxi, you should know one more thing: in Sri Lanka there are toll roads, go by which you will be able to save time, but you will additionally have to pay for the trip on highway 1 to $ 5.

You can also book a taxi (tour pickup from Kiwitaxi) in Sri Lanka through the proposed form, and driver will be waiting for you at the Airport upon arrival:

My wife was in Ceylon about the year 2012... in Kalutara.
Four stars - with Breakfast-dinner, beautiful kitchen and even a piano-pianist. From wandering through the territory of the lizards and chipmunks in the bushes. NO MONKEYS!!!
The tour was taken at the reception - minibus with air-condition, four (together with us) tourists 10 seats in the cabin. Visit tea plantations, stone Siguiri, different monasteries, overnight in Kandy, the Royal Palace, Botanical garden, elephant trekking and extreme return in the night in a hotel during a tropical storm and flooding!!! The guide was our driver.
Amazing culture, tragic history of the Royal dynasty, charming nature, unique Souvenirs from craftsmen, gold people, almost understandable for Ukrainians Sanskrit.
Of the shortcomings - a problem with alcohol... not even beer to buy hard liquor only in the supermarket and very expensive, local landmark, home purchased in Duty - Red Rum - muck rare!!! ...
