How to Calculate the Mileage/kilometers?
Kilometers are calculated from start point to start point (Payments are charged from the pick up point back to the pick up/ point of Origin.)
E.g.1: Airport to Airport or Kandy to Kandy or E.g.2 Airport > Bentota > Kandy > Airport
Example: if you started a trip from the Airport and had to end in Nilaveli Beach, then the returning km cost back to the airport from Nilaveli will be calculated.
How Payments are charged
E.g. 1 : If you booked a vehicle with the driver/Guide for Minimum 05 days and if the Guides/driver Profile indicated for such a tour it will be USD 35 per day, then you agree to pay for 500 km cost (USD 35x 5 =USD 175). In case you did 480 kms only, then this doesn’t mean your shortage 20 km will be refunded.
E.g. 2 : If you paid SLDG (us) USD 175 as for this example for 05 days tour, then end up doing 700 kms, then you agree by booking with us to pay for those extra 200 km a fee as stated in the the driver/guides profile “Additional km Cost” on each profile. If your itinerary is a fixed-non changing itinerary then you agree to pay at the time of confirming or if you don’t have a fixed plan, then you agree to pay those additional costs directly each day/at the final drop off point (including the kilometers to the returning point) to the driver or guide.
E.g.3: If a Fixed Itinerary is changed then this would only be calculated after the completion of your Total allowed Kilometers comes to an end, and then the extra kilometers must be paid directly to the driver/Guide who is conducting the tour or movement. You agree to pay those additional costs directly each day/at the final drop off point (including the kilometers to the returning point) to the driver or guide.
IMPORTANT TIP ON MILEAGE!
Check the Kilometer counter of the car before the Start of your trip and everyday: take pictures each day/or Sign the log sheet and ask driver or guide to do so too, so you are both on the same page each day to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings and costly legal procedures and time. Drivers and Guides have agreed not to overcharge or change the agreed price once agreed.
