I use KiwiTaxi every time I am in Istanbul and they are great every time! Shahed T
Second trip with Kiwitaxi and it was perfect like the first time. Love this company. Valerie Anne La Monte
This was the easiest trip I have had in many years. The driver in Georgia was just a lovely person, on-time and carried my bag right upto the border control and so helpful. Gave me the license plate number and showed me a picture of the car on the Armenian side. The driver on the Armenian side was waiting at the entrance to the country, had a sign with my name on it and off we went. We stopped for a snack and bathroom break halfway to Yerevan and he was also a very nice man. Total trip time was almost 6-hours, from Tbilisi to Yerevan and I will not hesitate to use this company again, hopefully they will be in the other countries I visit. Valerie Anne La Monte

Colombo Airport: Transfers and Taxi

Colombo is the largest city of Sri Lanka located on its western coast. It’s the commercial capital and the financial center of the island. Well-developed infrastructure, numerous extraordinary sights, and friendly local people make this place a popular tourist destination. Travelers leave Colombo by public transport or using a cab and transfer services.

Taxi from Colombo

Taxis are not numerous in Colombo, however, you can find one. You can call a car via phone yourself or ask your hotel to do that for you. Also, you can hire a taxi at the train station, bus terminals, close to large hotels, or through some travel agencies. Try to find a vehicle equipped with a taximeter - thus, your ride will be cheaper. On average, a journey to Bandaranaike Airport by taxi costs $19-22 (3,000 - 3,500 LKR) including highway toll charges. Its duration depends on the traffic and is usually about an hour. Taxi drivers often offer fixed prices or say they have no taximeter. If you don’t know the real fare to your destination, it’s better to refuse such a trip. 

Transfer from Colombo

A transfer ordered with the Kiwitaxi company will be a good option in case you want to travel in a comfortable air-conditioned car (as some taxis in Colombo are rather old) and wish to reach your desired destination quickly. The fare to the airport for 4 passengers is $31. A transfer can be easily pre-booked online in just a few clicks. At the time appointed, you will be met by your driver. If you need to get to someplace at night, you can also do that using a transfer.

All routes from Colombo as well as transfer rates can be found on the site.   

Public Transportation from Colombo

One can get from Colombo to its air hub by shuttle 187. There are two types of buses on this route - state (50 LKR or around $0.3) and private (150 LKR or around $1) ones (including vans). Sometimes, such a ride may take up to 2.5 hours (if a bus is not full enough, it might make some stops on the way to pick up other passengers). 

From Fort railway station, one can go to many other locations in Sri Lanka. Thus, 2nd-class train travel to Galle costs 180 LKR (around $1.1), to Hikkaduwa - 160 LKR (around $1), and to Kandy - 190 LKR (around $1.2). 

For night trips, we recommend you to pre-order a taxi or a transfer. Public transportation doesn’t run round the clock. 

Colombo: useful information

When in Colombo, visit its famous Old Lighthouse (or Clock Tower), Jami Ul-Alfar Mosque, Gangaramaya Temple, the Viharamahadevi Park, and the Sri Lanka National Museum.
