Sri Lanka Holiday: coronavirus information

Flight-inclusive Sri Lanka holiday packages and Sri Lanka Flight-Plus arrangements created by you on Expedia.co.uk are financially protected by the ATOL scheme.

Most Sri Lanka hotels also offer free cancellation. Consider booking refundable hotels rather than non-refundable ones. Just look for the ‘free cancellation’ message during your hotel search. Prices can vary, but right now we believe that flexibility matters.

For more information, please visit our Coronavirus Information page.
