Newton Perera

Extra Cover has secured the services of Mr Newton Perera, a bilingual Sri Lankan national who visits all the schools on its behalf on a regular basis, ensuring that the various programmes are running smoothly, and that every single rupee that is spent is spent properly. Mr Perera enables the charity to monitor the distinct needs of the schools – and their children – on a monthly basis. With language no barrier, the specific development, not just of an institution but of every single pupil, is addressed, but there is more to Newton than that…

Newton Tours

Newton is an official chauffeur with the Sri Lanka Tourist Board. He is fluent in English and his knowledge of the country’s history, archaeology, culture, flora and fauna is second to none. He owns a large, luxury air-conditioned car and charges in the region of £45 a day (including car, petrol and his time and advise), depending, of course on the journey. He also happens to be a wonderfully careful driver and one of the most considerate men you will ever meet. Should you be thinking of visiting Sri Lanka, Extra Cover recommends his services without reservation. Newton can organise everything you will need once you get to Sri Lanka, including hotels, tours, sightseeing, shopping, and restaurants. He can tailor any trip either before you arrive or as you go along, it is totally up to you. In our experience this costs considerably less than booking through a tour operator, and avoids using the bland tourist hotels. His experience and more importantly, honesty will help you be able to relax and enjoy a country that is truly unique. He can be contacted at:
