Hi - have never been to SL before and was wondering if it is possible to get SL rupees at the airport (Colombo) from an ATM or should I bring Sterling and change at the airport banks? Have never been a fan of travelers cheques but would they be useful in SL?
We are going off on a 8 day trip and can't imagine there will be ATMs where we will be visiting - so - what amounts of cash would we need to take with us to cover lunches etc (other meals are included in the tour) - I realise we all have different "lunches" but just an average daily figure would give me an idea.
What sort of tips would the guide and driver expect at the end of a tour?
Can anyone recommend an internet currency converter site - as the ones I have found so far only seem to mention Indian Rupees not SL.- or am I being plain daft as they are the same!
