Am traveling in September for roughly 6 days. Below is the itinerary but would love to know what type of driver to go for or how to book a driver –
01/09/17 – 2.00am
Pick up from Colombo airport and drive to Kandy. We will spend the day and one night in Kandy.
Drive to train station to get morning train to Ella. Get picked up in Ella and transferred to hotel.
No need for transport as we will stay in Ella.
Early morning drive to Udawalawe National park for half day safari tour. Evening drive to Tri hotel, Galle or Owl and Pussycat hotel (we are still deciding on which hotel).
No need for transport as we will stay in at the local hotel area.
Transfer from hotel to Colombo airport for flight that departs at 14.05.
Hi, I see you have already posted a request for a quote which is a good place to start. You will receive quotes from the drivers who are registered on this site. As you are not visiting any sights which specifically require a guide then you will not really gain a lot by selecting a qualified guide lecturer. Any driver, qualified or unqualified will be able to offer a good service for your route. Look through the reviews on the site and search for a driver that you feel comfortable with. If you have good communication during the quoting process then it is a good sign for the future!
After you agree on a price with a driver they will give you their own individual terms for booking. Some may require a deposit or advance payment, others may not. Most bookings tend to be an informal exchange of emails, although some of the larger tour companies may send you a full list of their terms and conditions.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Kind Regards, John – Admin
