💬 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I come alone?
Yes absolutely, many travellers both male & female travel alone on our trips. When you arrive we will pick you up from the airport and introduce you to other group members, it’s a great way to make new friends and share the adventure!

So what is included?
Check out ‘The Details’ tab for a breakdown…but all accommodation, trips & activities, transport in Sri Lanka and a bunch of meals are included. You only need to sort your international flights, travel insurance and spending money!

Are flights included in the price?
International flights to and from Sri Lanka are not included in the tour price. We can assist with planning your arrival and departure into Sri Lanka. We can even arrange hassle free transfers during the booking process to make life easier for you. Click these options when you book and we will take care of the rest!

When is the best time to travel Sri Lanka?
Sri Lanka like most countries in South East Asia has a tropical climate.

Based on the high volume of rain between May & October we at Feel Free Travel have decided to avoid these months as there is a low chance of blue skies and sunshine.

If you travel with us between November and April we usually get the holiday weather you are looking for! There could be rainy periods, but when it rains it’s usually only for an hour or 2. We will always try out best to work around the weather and it typically doesn’t cause us any issues.

Can I contact other people who have booked onto the same tour as me?
Absolutely! Travelling is about meeting new people and sharing the adventure. We have a Facebook Group ‘The Feel Free Family’ where you can get chatting to other group members that have booked or others like you looking to book! Click HERE to get yourself added in the group 🙂

Do I have access to WIFI?
Throughout the trip your Group Leader will always do their best to get you access to WIFI. All our accommodation providers on the trip have WIFI Aswell as most cafes & restaurants. If you prefer you can purchase a 3G SIM card for about £7-10 at the Airport.

How much spending money do I need?
You don’t need much at all considering almost everything is included! We suggest no less then £300 to be safe…some people spend less and some more. It really depends on your spending habits…if you love shopping or are prone to a few more big nights then the average person you could spend more. You can spend far less if you are tight with your budget but this kind of average works well for most people.

🎫 BEFORE THE TRIP

Aim to Arrive Early
We always recommend arriving a day early to allow you to recover from the long flight but it’s not essential.
We have a bunch of ideas for you to spend your extra day here in Negombo and depending on other arrivals we will usually plan to do something for the early arrivals.

Travel Insurance & Visa
Before you arrive it’s important to get travel insurance and a visa to visit Sri Lanka. If you need any help with this please let us know and we will do our best to help.

💬 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I come alone?
Yes absolutely, many travellers both male & female travel alone on our trips. When you arrive we will pick you up from the airport and introduce you to other group members, it’s a great way to make new friends and share the adventure!

So what is included?
Check out ‘The Details’ tab for a breakdown…but all accommodation, trips & activities, transport in Sri Lanka and a bunch of meals are included. You only need to sort your international flights, travel insurance and spending money!

Are flights included in the price?
International flights to and from Sri Lanka are not included in the tour price. We can assist with planning your arrival and departure into Sri Lanka. We can even arrange hassle free transfers during the booking process to make life easier for you. Click these options when you book and we will take care of the rest!

When is the best time to travel Sri Lanka?
Sri Lanka like most countries in South East Asia has a tropical climate.

Based on the high volume of rain between May & October we at Feel Free Travel have decided to avoid these months as there is a low chance of blue skies and sunshine.

If you travel with us between November and April we usually get the holiday weather you are looking for! There could be rainy periods, but when it rains it’s usually only for an hour or 2. We will always try out best to work around the weather and it typically doesn’t cause us any issues.

Can I contact other people who have booked onto the same tour as me?
Absolutely! Travelling is about meeting new people and sharing the adventure. We have a Facebook Group ‘The Feel Free Family’ where you can get chatting to other group members that have booked or others like you looking to book! Click HERE to get yourself added in the group 🙂

Do I have access to WIFI?
Throughout the trip your Group Leader will always do their best to get you access to WIFI. All our accommodation providers on the trip have WIFI Aswell as most cafes & restaurants. If you prefer you can purchase a 3G SIM card for about £7-10 at the Airport.

How much spending money do I need?
You don’t need much at all considering almost everything is included! We suggest no less then £300 to be safe…some people spend less and some more. It really depends on your spending habits…if you love shopping or are prone to a few more big nights then the average person you could spend more. You can spend far less if you are tight with your budget but this kind of average works well for most people.
