Very reliable, fast responses, fair prices and easy to book. I can only recommend using them while travelling around Sri Lanka.

Used two taxi companies for our three week stay/tour of Sri Lanka. Less Taxi proved itself to be - by far - the most reliable of the two and thus we gave this one most of our business. Communication was courteous and informative at all times. Information given was accurate.

Thank you very much, Ms. Angela! We discussed as early as a month in advance and I'm really glad that we could serve you as planned for the first part of the tour. I'm really glad that you could test and validate the quality of experience that Less Taxi is promising. Frankly speaking, at Less Taxi we are trying to build the most loved travel deals marketplace in Sri Lanka. In this mission, it's vital to maintain the quality of service at its highest possible. Every single review, feedback on each ride that you share is extremely helpful and actively considered positively. Less Taxi does not own any taxis and none of the driver-partners are its employees. Instead, we maintain a shortlisted driver-partners from each local community. This helps Less Taxi to find the best deal in each town by helping the local driver-partners to reduce their operational costs. Best prices for Airport transfers from Colombo International Airport to Galle, Mirissa, Sigiriya, Kandy, Ella, Arugambay are among the top-selling deals. All activities like Safari Jeeps in Udawalawa, Yala, Wilpattu, Kumana are arranged with local experts at discounted prices. Whale watching in Mirissa is booked with the number # 1 Whale Watching cruise in Mirissa with volume discounts. Best prices and the best services together with the hospitality attitude helps us to keep expanding the service. We look forward to serving your family/friends and you again in Sri Lanka!

We were recommended this service half way through our Sri Lanka holiday by other travellers. Ruwan was incredibly friendly, easy to contact and helpful. Arranged 4 separate taxis with this service all at prices better than could get elsewhere in more comfortable cars. Ruwan

That's certainly a remarkable accomplishment! Your feedback is essentially making us stronger! Less Taxi helps the local driver-partners to save their operational costs by reducing their empty returns. We carefully analyze each route and various techniques to reduce their costs without compromising the quality of service. This essentially helps us to grab the best deals from them. It makes us stay below the market prices without ripping off either party - Less Taxi is cheap and offers the best service. While lowest price is one of the things that we try to achieve as much as possible in each route, we do wanna make sure we stand for the best quality of service, and we do it all around the island. We wanna make sure it delivers the best experience. In the mission of building the most loved travel deals marketplace in Sri Lanka, Less Taxi arranges deals for cheap taxis in Sri Lanka as well as best safari deals in Sri Lanka. We are looking forward to serving your friends/family and you again!

Less Taxi is the best! Good prices and great service. The driver was always on time and drove safe. Also if you want to make a short stop at a cultural site, that’s possible for just a bit extra. The contact via whatsapp is super easy and he gets back to you super fast.

Thank you very much Ms. Carline! It was really a great pleasure to serve you. Your cooperation to serve you throughout the tour was great support for us to serve you well. We could serve a good taxi deal for a cheap taxi from Negombo to Anuradhapura and Sigiriya. Also a safe transfer from Ella to Colombo International Airport with the cheapest possible during the emergency situation. Less Taxi is offering great taxi deals all around Sri Lanka by helping the local driver-partners to reduce the operational costs. Except during the times, where the optimization opportunities are quite less, Less Taxi offers deals well below the market price. We do it in a way that helps the passengers to enjoy more of Sri Lanka with Less, without compromising the quality of service nor the earnings of the drivers. Also, we carefully select the deal prices in a way that it creates a net positive impact on the national income. A win-win-win for all. I look forward to serving your family/friends and you again.
