Driver 14th-23rd March Wanted

Hi,

We are a family of 5 wanting to hire a car and driver for our holiday 14th-23rd March. We'd like a car with proper over the shoulder seat belts for all 5 of us (and plan to bring the kids 3 car seats - unless this is something we can have provided locally in Sri Lanka?). Looking for a safe, relaible driver. Our itinerary is Colombo, Bentota, Tea trails, Kandy, Colombo.

Thanks

London, United...

This is an unbelievably foolish post. Would you stand on the road with a sign saying the same thing? And even if you'd do that or something equally silly, would you trust your family in a car with someone who answered? I know I would not. You will get many offers now by email and PM offering you their services. May I respectfully suggest you ignore the lot and please try to find a licensed and insured and respectable and well known operator to drive you and your family around. Try PM one or more of the DEs here for advice

No it's NOT because you publish your e-mail but because you SPAM and constantly promote the same, probably your associated, agency. Away with it!

All the best,

Spamming is when you keep responding with the same thing to every single post. Did you not do that ?

And you're not helping anyone when you bump threads with irrelevant information. It confuses posters, and contributors alike.

It has nothing to do with all the "drivers and places in this area and around the country" that you know about.
