About Tuktuk Rental
We help local tuktuk owners earn extra income by matching them with avid travelers (like you) who want a self-driving adventure like no other. We get YOU behind the handlebars of late model tuktuks so you can explore Sri Lanka like a local!
In 2013, Tom bought a beat up tuktuk and traveled over 3,000 kilometres from North to South of India. Since then, he’s been thinking of how he can give others the same feeling of freedom and adventure that comes with driving a culturally iconic 3-wheeled glorified lawnmower. To help make this vision a reality in 2016 he co-founded ‘tuktukrental.com’ with his mate Richard.
We believe the best way to travel anywhere in the world is like a local, and that the best and most fulfilling memories start with you choosing your own adventure. So what better way to travel like a local and choose your adventure than in the driving seat of your very own tuktuk?
Tuktuk Rental.com operates out of the beach side suburb of Mt. Lavinia, in Colombo, Sri Lanka. We work hard behind the scenes to make renting a tuktuk in Sri Lanka as easy as possible. We source late model and reliable tuktuks and sort out all the paperwork so you can turn up and go. At its core, the business is an online platform that links tourists with local tuktuk owners.
Sri Lanka is the perfect country to explore by tuktuk. Well surfaced roads wind around beautiful beaches and mountain passes, and friendly locals are always helpful in offering assistance.
