Explore Sri Lanka in a tuktuk and do some good at the same time


Discover a unique way to explore the island paradise of Sri Lanka: in your own rented tuktuk.

Tuktuk Rental, a socially aware company, has been renting out the three-wheeled tuktuks to adventurous travellers since 2016.

Sri Lanka is one of the world's fastest emerging tourist destinations following the end of a 30-year civil war and is an island with island sandy beaches, national parks and tropical rainforests, along with tea plantations.




There are over 1.2 million tuktuks in Sri Lanka, making the three-wheeler the motor vehicle of choice for many locals. Many of the motorised rickshaws are hand-painted with bold designs and slogans.

Due to high government import taxes, however, tuktuks are quite expensive and out of reach financially for many average Sri Lankans. Many owners struggle to pay them off over several years.

Tuktuk Rental is the only three wheel rental agency in Sri Lanka that also operates as a social business and does not own any tuktuks.

Instead, Tuktuk Rental rents from local tuktuk owners who are not using their vehicles, helping them to boost their income while covering all of the transportation logistics for tourists to enjoy their trip hassle-free.



Full insurance coverage, an arrangement of the special local tuktuk driving permit, comprehensive driving lessons and access to an "adventure platform" for itinerary planning are all included.
