KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Negombo

  • Car hire in Negombo is one of the most popular transport options and an ideal chance to explore one of the largest cities in Sri Lanka. Take a drive out to Negombo Lagoon or spend time at the beach before driving to nearby cities and towns like Colombo City, Kandy or Sigiriya. You can do all of this without relying on a local bus schedule or forking out loads of money for taxi drivers.
  • An airport car hire in Negombo is possible from Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB), the main international airport in Sri Lanka and most likely your arrival and departure point. No car hire desks operate from the airport; you'll need to book your car through KAYAK with companies such as Budget, AVIS, Europcar and more. When you arrive at the airport, you'll be met in the arrivals hall by a company employee, who will escort you to your car.
  • Driving your Negombo car hire isn't any harder than driving anywhere else in Sri Lanka. Make sure you stick to the speed limit in the city, keep a working navigation app open to avoid getting lost and drive on the left-hand side. Traffic in Negombo can be very heavy at times, especially during the morning and afternoon commutes. If you can, try to avoid driving during these periods. It's important to be aware of local tuk-tuk drivers, bikers and pedestrians. The local drivers are friendly but can also be impatient, and pedestrians cross the road often.
  • A difficult thing when driving your car hire in Negombo is the traffic. On the streets in major cities, it can be very heavy and feel chaotic. Keep an eye on your speed and stay calm. If you can, avoid driving in the evening, as lighting can be a problem in Negombo. Be aware of local drivers honking their horns often. This is used to signal things like passing other cars or letting you know they're close to you. Honking isn't often aggressive like it is in Australia.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Negombo?

    As with most cities in Sri Lanka, a smaller car is always easier to navigate and find parking on the street. If you're planning on road tripping to other cities and towns, consider getting a 4x4 to deal with possible issues on the road. An automatic transmission is also much easier when the traffic is high. Most car hire companies in Negombo also offer the chance to hire a driver with the car, which is often a lot easier than driving yourself.

  • What’s the speed limit in Negombo?

    The local speed limits and road rules are country-wide limits. If you're driving in a built-up area, like the city centre of Negombo, the maximum speed is 50 km/h. There are areas in the city centre that have a lower speed limit, usually closer to schools or shopping areas. Other parts of the city have a limit of 60 km/h. Pay attention to the road signs for confirmation. When driving on urban roads, your speed will be capped at 70 km/h, and on major motorways, the speed limit is usually 100 km/h.

  • Where are the best places to park in Negombo?

    It's recommended that you find a hotel with free parking if you're hiring a car in Negombo. It'll be easier and safer than parking your car on the street. The parking in the city centre is plentiful, with several car parks and plenty of street parking spots. If you're in the shopping areas or around tourist sites, finding free on-street parking is usually difficult. The local car parks charge for a ticket when you enter and you must pay the ticket before going back to the car.
