Hi there....

Baggage allowance could depend on what ticket you have, for example if part of a package bought via a travel operator it could be as low as 20KGs, but if bought direct from SriLankan Airlines it will be 30 KGs.

If checking in online 48 hours before departure, more than likely you will get away with the 30KGs...

Hand luggage, this is one peice weight, 7.5 KGs.. per person..

VIsa ?, your passport will be stamped on arrival for a visitors visa valid for up to 30 days..

Rupees??, wait till you get to Colombo, several exchange desks just after the customs hall there open 24/7, all will have the same rates, after that, you can change at any bank in Sri Lanka..

Regards

Dave.

Hi,

your baggage allowance is 30kg + your hand luggage. UK citizens don,t need a visa if they,re only visiting for 30 days or less. Any longer and an extension can be got in Colombo.

Have a good trip

With Kuoni _likely_ to be 20 kg luggage allowance, sorry.... The ticket price through packages supposedly is lower than for direct bookers and that has consequences...

All the best,
