Official Colombo Bandaranaike Airport Taxi Details

Colombo Bandaranaike Airport Taxi

Colombo Bandaranaike Airport taxi photo

There are several options for Bandaranaike International Airport taxi service. For the cheapest option, go to the taxi counter in the Arrivals Hall at Colombo Bandaranaike Airport. They provide minivan taxis without air conditioning and for about a third cheaper than Bandaranaike Airport taxis provided by 'hotels'. It is worth noting that this service is primarily intended for the locals, so the counter staff will try to persuade you to go to one of the 'hotel taxi' counters. If you want the cheap fare, insist that you only want a minivan taxi.

Otherwise, the official Bandaranaike International Airport taxi service provided for tourists, supervised by the airport, offer taxis both with and without air conditioning.





Arrive or depart stress-free at the Colombo Bandaranaike Airport by pre-booking your private Colombo Bandaranaike Airport transfer.
See our Colombo Bandaranaike Airport private transfer options page for more information and pricing.


 Colombo Bandaranaike Airport Taxi Scams


Some first time travellers to Colombo find themselves falling victim to scams and touts. Be on guard for anybody trying to help you by giving you unsolicited directions or travel advice. Take any advice from Bandaranaike Airport taxi and auto drivers with a grain of salt, especially if they tell you the place you want to go to is closed, dangerous, etc. If you are unsure, check a map. If you have been told your hotel is closed or full, give them a call. If you are a first time visitor to Sri Lanka, do not admit it, as it will make you a mark for the scam artists.
