Whilst there are several times of the year to choose from, May is seen as the time to fly to Sri Lanka, however, it is possible to get good deals throughout the year.

When is the best time to book a flight to Sri Lanka?

To ensure you get the cheapest price possible for a flight to Sri Lanka, you should look to book at least 59 days in advance of your intended travel date. The price of your flight may increase if you delay and leave booking until a week or so before departure.

Sri Lanka is often called the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, but given its hot and humid climate, this verdant island could be more accurately called the Emerald of the Indian Ocean.

Its beaches – Trincomalee, Bentota and Unawatuna – are palm-fringed and soft-sanded, but this little isle also has a rich colonial history (Galle port was used by Persians, Arabs, Greeks, Romans, Malays and Indians before the Portuguese, Dutch and, later, English arrived) and an inspiring cultural heritage (the cultural triangle extends from Anuradhapura to Polonnaruwa to Dambulla).

Flights to Sri Lanka will deliver you to graceful people, a beautiful island and a rich holiday experience.

Getting around Sri Lanka

ExpoAir flies from Colombo to Jaffna and there are other private charter airlines and helicopter services.

If you have lots of time, train travel can be a fascinating way of getting around the island. On some of the longer journeys, old-style sleeper trains are available.

Bus services on the island are run by the Central Transport Board (CTB) and private companies.

Three-wheel vehicles, known variously as tuk-tuks, bajajs or auto-rickshaws are a neat way of taking short trips.

Independent travellers can rent motor-bikes and cars. Hiring a car and driver is another popular option; drivers will have local knowledge.
