travel from Unawatuna to Colombo

We finish our trip with 5 days in Unawatuna and do not have our driver after being dropped of at the hotel. Would it be cheaper to get our own transport back to Colombo or to have the driver take us. Red Dot are saying that we part company with our driver, but then they arrange our transport back to Colombo, does this sound sensible.

It should be about same price as the car/van will go empty one-way in both cases.

I'd imagine that during your 5 days in Unawatuna you could find a local driver who can do you a good deal for the trip. Using an agent such as Red Dot will inevitably involve a higher fee since RD get commission. But the difference in money involved may not be worth the hastle.
