Airport Taxi Transfers

Book-Taxi-Sri-Lanka Transfers

We can fix your airport transfer by air conditioned taxi or people carrier. Transfer bookings include free cancellation, and they have customer service available 24/7 should there be any problems like flight delays. There is also a coach hire option for larger groups if needed. It is about a 2½ to 3 hour drive from Colombo to Weligama and we are in Gurubebila, 3km just north of Weligama.


  • from Columbo (CMB) – £106 for a one way trip for 2 people – 2½ to 3 hours
  • from Hambantota (HRI) – is still, even with the highway the same time so we would recommend arrival in Colombo if you are coming directly to us. HRI is good if you are starting near Yala Safari Park.
