Top tips for hiring a car in Sri Lanka

  • Because Sri Lankan roads tend to be narrow, it is advised to rent a compact car; plus, the island is small enough for you to navigate in one day. If you plan to explore the Central Highlands of Sri Lanka, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you may want to upgrade your rental car to a four-wheel drive, as the roads are more rugged and hilly.
  • Renting a car in Sri Lanka will provide you with the most freedom and save you much more time than if you used the time-consuming train service. Often, public transport cannot take you to certain areas like a car can. To navigate around the country, it is recommended that you rent a GPS device from your car hire company, which you can get for around 2,121 LKR (12 USD) per day.
  • You will find several new highways in Sri Lanka that provide great driving conditions for your rental car. The Colombo-Katunayake Expressway connects the Bandaranaike International Airport to Kelani Bridge on the coast, a route you can drive in 30m. The Southern Expressway is 161 km (100 mi) long and extends from the south in Kottawa to Matara, while the Outer Circular Expressway links the Southern Expressway to the Katunayake Expressway.
  • To make the most of driving around Sri Lanka, it is important to know the rush hours on the roads, particularly in major cities. It is advised to drive in cities and large towns like Colombo only between 8:30 am and 2:30 pm, or after 8:00 pm in the evening.
