yes, you can but you should know a guy or a friend to arrange a driver for you and then the trust issue comes with it, better drive yourself or get a car with a driver.
Yes you could only thing is its safe if you get a driver from them
All car renting companies also provide drivers on request , Its advisable to get a driver as sri lankan motorist mostly use "Murphy's law" - "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong".
I agree with Nishan
Yes, They charge you per day basis . The price range is approx LKR 2000/- to 2500/- per day & meals have to be supplied. If you need a Good person I could recommend one.

Hi !
When you rent a car from Avis, You have to sign as the person driving, producing your ID and driving licence. If you use an independent driver for the car, and in the event of ANY accident or damage, the Total cost will be payable by yourself, notwithstanding the insurance. Even if there is no accident, if "Avis" finds out that you used a different driver, you are liable to pay extra costs, or forfeit your deposit.
It would be best to rent a car with driver for that period separately.
Hi !
If you use a different driver than the one who rents from the company, they will keep your deposit for illegal use. better get a driver and car for that period from the same company itself.
Yes, You can get a driver or a car as you like.
Thanks!
