How it works?

  • The reservation system is open 30 days in advance, therefore we advise you to send your booking more than 30 before the travel date, this will allow us to secure your place as soon as the reservation opened. The earlier you book the greater the chance of securing your seats but you can send your booking until up to 2 days prior to the travel date.

  • Once we receive your booking, we will contact the service provider to process your booking and we will send you the confirmation details about how / where to collect your tickets, in the event there is no availability we will refund you fully.

  1. Please click on above "BOOK NOW" button and follow the onscreen instructions.
  2. If you book in advance, we will e-mail you the confirmation / reservation number approximately 30 days prior to travel date, if your travel date is in less than 30 days, then we will send you the confirmation within 48hrs of booking being received, if you haven't received this by then, please contact us.
  3. Make your way to the relevant train station at least 30 minutes prior to the train departure to collect your tickets.
  4. Provide your reservation number and passport to the RAILWAY STATION ticket counter to obtain the ticket(s). 
  5. Reservation must be minimum 2 days in advance of your desired travel date(s). sending prior to this does not mean that tickets are guaranteed we will attempt to secure your tickets when the sales open and inform you accordingly. 

Ticket Fares

Please note that below fares are including tickets price + service charge + our booking fee and other costs involved to process your tickets,  which means fares are higher than the actual (SLR) ticket price. you can buy base price ticket (s) over the counter at the station. All our bookings come with reserved seats (including 3rd class).

As we would expect from any Western country, Sri Lanka Train ticket fares, vary based on a few main factors (yield management) e.g. peak/off peak times, availability versus demand, carriage conditions, seating facilities, length of journey etc. That's why some first-class tickets cost £21 compared to £11 first class tickets on shabby, old carriages. In other words, new 3rd class reserved carriage tickets are more expensive than first-class tickets on old carriages on unpopular coastal routes. 

Fares listed on our website are based on Sri Lankan railway fares and handling fees. Hope that we receive your booking request in time to secure your booking directly from railway company, ideally, 32 days prior to travel date, if your travel date is less than 30 days' time and there is no availability with railway company, we may search  for your request from other third party agents and provide you with available classes/trains and fares to decide whether you wish to go ahead with new availability/fare, otherwise, we will refund you fully. Please consider given available options and fares before you decide as we cannot help you with any queries you may have after the booking has been completed.
