Car and driver cost

Hi, I have been quoted US$550 for a car and driver for 8 days to go from Columbo Airport to Polonuwarra and ending in Mirissa via Kandy, Nuwara Eliya and Ella. Is this a good price? If not can you recommend how much I should expect to pay.

Hi there,

Seems quite decent yes, as it's around 1000-1200 km roundtrip (you also pay for his empty return to airport) and around Rs 45-50/km with a minimum daily mileage.

All the best,

I am also planning to visit Srilanka in March and looking for a driver with reasonable rate. We are 7 adults and 2 children. Can you share the no of the driver who has quoted $550/- for 8 days.
