Cricket is a national obsession in Sri Lanka, and Sri Lankan cricket is an obsession for Red Dot. No-one can rival our specialist knowledge and sheer affection for the island. No other company is better rooted in the cricketing community.
Red Dot’s specialist team combines its sporting expertise and proven knowledge of tourism in Sri Lanka to tailor the perfect tour to suit your budget and ability.
Our day-to-day involvement with Sri Lankan cricket and status as one of Sri Lanka’s most successful independent travel companies means our Red Dot Sports team can offer independent expert advice as well as great value for money.
With twenty years experience of working in Sri Lanka we know just about every beach, bar, cricket ground and hotel. We don’t always go for obvious choices because we know the hidden treasures and that is what makes our tours special. We combine our wealth of knowledge of the island with a day-to-day interaction with Sri Lankan cricket, to design and organise innovative tours that respond to your individual needs.
Whether as travel experts, journalists, players or supporters, the Red Dot Sports team have decades of experience travelling the world with cricket. With our wealth of knowledge, we know what makes a good tour. We do not wish to publicise all our secrets, but these are just some of the services Red Dot will offer:
- Delicious buffet lunches on match days
- Community days at local charities
- A supply of net bowlers
- Specialist coaching with international coaches and players
- Availability of staff and cricket helpers with national team experience
- Supplying kit and equipment at great value
Using Red Dot’s competive rates for over 400 hotels on the island, we can confidently find suitable accommodation for a touring group in terms of size and location, and offer a range of price. When it comes to booking, we will happily cater to your group’s specific needs concerning room requirements, in terms of suites, doubles, singles or dormitory-style accommodation.
For UK travellers to organise an overseas tour without ATOL cover is not only illegal, it is foolhardy in the extreme. Amateur tour organisers are exposed the minute that something goes wrong: a missed flight, an overbooked hotel, a sick or injured passenger. Come with Red Dot and enjoy the peace of mind of our ATOL protection. Don’t take the risk.
Your money goes to the country in which you will play your cricket. We are based in Colombo and do not need to subsidise plush UK offices or expensive brochures. After years of selling online holidays, Red Dot gets unbeatable rates at hotels and with airlines – rest assured you will not beat our prices going alone.
As one of Sri Lanka’s leading travel companies, we have a duty to promote responsible travel in Sri Lanka and ensure that our tours are as eco-friendly as possible.
