About the company

TukTukRental.com is an adventure & social start-up, operating in Colombo, Sri Lanka since 2016. Our goal is to improve the lives and incomes of Sri Lankan three-wheel owners by renting their asset to tourists for self-drive adventures over the paradise island of Sri Lanka. As of March 2019, we have started operations in Kerala, India and will be looking to expand into other countries as time continues.

By renting out these tuktuks from local Sri Lankans (instead of purchasing our own fleet), we give back to the local community while also providing our customers with life-changing experiences. We believe the most authentic and best way to travel anywhere in the world is to travel like a local, and travelling like a local opens the door to many places not available by traditional or mainstream tourist routes. This allows tourists to embrace local culture, cuisine, and lifestyle while interacting with communities, sharing experiences and creating everlasting memories.

We work hard behind the scenes to make renting a tuktuk in Sri Lanka as easy as possible. We source late model and reliable tuktuks and sort out all the paperwork so tourists can turn up and go. At its core, the business is an online platform that links tourists with local tuktuk owners, these tourists hire the vehicle from the local owner and self-drive the vehicle as they road trip around Sri Lanka.

About our team

We have a small but highly effective team located at our head office in Mount Lavinia, Sri Lanka. Our team is made up of hardworking and motivated individuals filling operational, marketing, and business administration roles. Working in a high-paced and western-oriented office.

We need people who are flexible and willing to do whatever work is necessary to move our business forward, tackling new and emerging operational and market problems outside of their regular duties to “get the job done”.

Cleaning and getting your hands dirty is not “above” the role of anyone in our business. We encourage new ideas, failure, and importantly learning from failure. We are looking for overly enthusiastic people with a positive attitude to move our business to the next stage of growth.
