My driver stayed with me , very helpful over several hours as we discovered we had been given a wrong hotel address in Colombo
by the tour company that I was joining. My transfer driver drove me an hour back towards the airport to where the hotel was actually located. He felt like a caring friend when I needed one ! So reassuring.
My friendly driver was waiting when I came out of the arrivals hall. He knew exactly the location of the hotel and we went straight there, which I really appreciated as I had a late night arrival. The car was clean and there was no stale smoke odor.
I would welcome a transfer with this careful driver again if the opportunity presented itself.
