12.What clothes do I need to take?

a. Light cotton or linen clothing. It can be chilly in NuwaraEliya (the hill country) at night, so a sweater is recommended. Shoulders and knees must be covered to enter temples. Socks may also be a good idea for walking round places such as Polonnaruwa – the ground can be extremely hot for bare feet. Cotton t-shirts and shorts. Trousers to visit temples. Sandals. Trainers for walks. Socks. A fleece. Umbrella. Waterproof jacket.

13.Do I require a Visa?

a. You will need to obtain an ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization) prior to your visit to Sri Lanka. You can apply directly for an online ETA by visiting the following website: www.eta.gov.lk.
Do not apply too early as it is only valid for 90 days from the date you apply. The cost of the ETA is $20pp (about £13) if you are a UK citizen. Payment is made by either credit card or e-commerce enabled debit cards. Only Visa, Master and American Express Cards are accepted. When applying, you will need your passport details, flight details and the name and address of your first hotel on your tour Children under the age of 12 are free. Please do take the ETA with you when you travel. As at January 2012, if you find that you can’t apply for one before you travel, you can obtain a Visa on entering Sri Lanka, for $25pp (about £16)
your passport must be valid 6 months beyond your intended date of departure from Sri Lanka. A 60-day extension can be requested (variable fee) at the Dept. of Immigration and Emigration in Colombo. It is your responsibility to have the correct personal documents and obtain your Visa, if necessary. As with all foreign travel, it is wise to take a copy of the details page of your passport which will help the British Consulate in providing a temporary one in case of loss.

14.What vaccinations do I require?

a. Please consult your doctor for up to date information before you travel

15. What opportunities are there for photography?

a. There are so many opportunities for photography whether it is of scenes of everyday life by the roadside, spectacular vistas or of the amazing wildlife. Do please take a memory card of sufficient size as you will find you will take so many photographs. It would also be a good idea to bring some small binoculars to view the wildlife in the National Parks as with all wild animals, you will only be able to view them from a distance

16 . Do I need Insurance?

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have adequate travel insurance for the activities that you are doing on your Tour such as white rafting, elephant rides, game drive etc. All travelers booking with us need to notify us of their insurance arrangements prior to travelling.

17.Are you able to book airport transfers?

We offer comprehensive tour packages that include airport drop-off and pickup, as well as arrival transfers.

18.Where can I change money?

a. Yes, you can only purchase Sri Lankan Rupees in Sri Lanka as it isn’t an International Currency. On arrival at Colombo Airport, it is best to change some money at the Banks just before the Arrival Hall where there are 24hr facilities. Banks in towns are generally open 9am to 1pm or 3pm Mon-Fri. All banks are shut at weekends and public holidays. Changing Traveler’s Cheques can be a time-consuming process in a Bank, however, most Hotels will change these but the rate may not be such a good one. ATMs accepting Visa and MasterCard are widely available in cities and towns. If you wish to use Visa or MasterCard’s in ATMs, (as with all overseas travel) it is best to notify your Bank in the UK that you will be travelling to Sri Lanka, prior to your departure. When changing currency in Sri Lanka it is advisable that you keep a copy of the money exchange certificate with you. Always demand this certificate when you change money as you may be asked for this when you leave. You are not allowed to take Sri Lankan Rupees out of the country

19.What is the time difference?

a. It is GMT + 4.5 hrs. In summer and + 5.5hrs in winter

20.Do you offer any additional optional excursions?

There are many fantastic included activities on the tours however if there any additional optional excursions available to you, they will be stated on your itinerary with your finalized travel documents
