Casons also opened a travel counter at the Colombo International Airport's Arrival Terminal recently.Casons Rent-Car Chairman, Zakir Ahamed said that with the opening of their travel counter at the Colombo airport, they have identified several grey areas and this is the reason they decided to offer a lounge facility outside the airport to passengers for less that US 10 dollars per stay including coffee, tea and snacks.
"Flight schedules will be displayed at the hotel and all guests will be dropped and picked up by our drivers.
He said that the proposed Casons Bed and Breakfast too will offer 20 rooms and for the first time they will charge guests on an hourly basis. “This will encourage guests to relax if they have longer check-in times.”
He also said that for the first time in Sri Lanka they will introduce a facility where a passenger taking flight could park their vehicles at this hotel and fly to any destination and take the vehicle upon return. We will offer them a free pick up and a drop and also maintain their car while they are overseas.”
Ahamed said that one of the unique features of this concept is that the passenger will be able track the movements of the vehicle via a special App.
