Driver's License in Sri Lanka

When picking the car up, the main driver and any additional drivers will need to provide a physical full driver's license in their name and have held their driver's license for at least 2 years.

Unless you have a Sri Lankan driver's license, you will need one of the following:

1)International Driving License/ Permit with an endorsement by the Automobile Association of Sri Lanka (AA).

2)If you don’t have an IDP and hold a foreign driver's license, a Temporary Sri Lankan Driving License has to be obtained from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in Werahera (30-minute drive from Central Colombo) to be able to drive legally in Sri Lanka.

*Attention! Some car rental companies would have different requirements. Please check Terms and Conditions during the booking process.

10Easy booking and friendly service with value for money

I had contacted Europcar prior to my arrival and they had assured that the process will be smooth. Their representative Mr. Nilantha was supportive during the handover and takeover process which went smooth. Sri Lanka is currently facing an issue with fuel and i suggest customers to plan their trips accordingly.

2.7Rental is fully scammers

Booked car was compact class (Toyota Aqua), but was given car from class mini (Perodua Bezza). And the staff of rental told us that it's better car. It was a blatant lie! So we paid more for worse car! It was disgusting! Rental is fully scammers. The car was in terrible condition: big dents, tire tread completely erased, dirt in the car, car suspention problems... They use the fact that you have nowhere to go because you need a car and pretend they don’t understand your English. If you book their car, be careful, insist on your own and check everything very carefully. Finally I have to say that it is not a real Europcar, all cars are given from local rental SR rent a car. So be very careful booking car in this area.

Information about the excess will be clearly stated in the price inclusion when you reserve a car on QEEQ.

Q2. How can I add an addtional driver?

You are advised to make a request upon your arrival at the rental counter. Additional charge per day will incur unless '1 Additional Driver Included' is stipulated on the rental.
Please note that the same licence and age requirement applys to the additonal driver. The addtional driver is supposed to present the required licence document along with the main driver at pickup.

Q3.What if I want to pick up or drop off my rental car out of office hours?

QEEQ will show you the car offers available at your chosen time on the search results.
However, pick-up or drop-off out of general opening hours may subject to an extra fee unless self-service pick-up or drop-off is available.
After you reserve a car on QEEQ, we will inform you of specific policy of the car hire company by email.

Q4. Can I take the hired car to another country or cross border?

If you want to pick up your car in one country and drop it in another, your search results will show you cars you can do that with.
If you're planning to cross any borders during your trip, bear in mind:
1. You may have to pay more.
There are often extra fees, taxes or additional cover you'll pay at the car hire counter.
2.It may not be allowed.
Depending on where you're hiring, you may not be able to take your car to another country.
Please email us if you want to take your hire car into a different country during your trip, and we'll talk you through your options.

Q5. Can I pick up my car at one location and return it at different location?

Yes. You can pick up the vehicle in one place and drop it off in another. An ‘one-way fee’ will incur. Whether it is inclued in the rental price or what additional cost may arise will be clearly stated at the time of booking on QEEQ.
Please inform the car hire company of your drop-off location when you pick up the vehicle or contact them directly during your trip. You will find a phone number on the rental agreement you signed at pickup.
