Location information for Colombo

Sri Lanka's commercial and financial capital is Colombo, a large city which is home to many of the country's entertainment venues, restaurants, and corporate offices. Downtown Colombo makes a good starting point for visiting Sri Lanka because it offers facilities and services that complement the stay of every tourist or business traveler.

Traveling to Colombo is possible by bus from other parts of Sri Lanka but you can also take a train from the Bandaranaike International Airport to the downtown area if you are flying in from other cities. When you arrive in the city, you can arrange for car rental in Colombo Downtown if you wish to get around comfortably.

While in the downtown area, be sure to visit some of Colombo's galleries and museums such as the National Museum, the Sapumal Foundation, the Natural History Museum, and the Lionel Wendt Memorial Art Center. You can also take a break in the promenade Galle Face Green especially in the late afternoon or evening.

Mount Lavinia is an ideal place to visit if you want to get away from the bustling city center. Taxis can take you there but you can save money with cheap car rental in Colombo Downtown. It is about a 20-minute drive from the city and it has a beach and a vibrant nightlife.

Take your car rental in Colombo Downtown for a day trip to Kandy, a small but quiet town where you can find one of the sacred relics of Buddhism, Buddha's tooth. Kandy lies 75 miles of downtown Colombo and can be reached in about an hour and 54-minute drive via the A1.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Car-Rentals.com the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
