6 Hacks to Save Money in the Maldives – Enjoy the Maldives on a Budget

The Maldives is undoubtedly one of the most sought after tropical destinations in the world but the country is also quite an expensive travel destination.


Pick the low season

The Maldives is a tropical destination hence the sunny times do not set out on these beautiful islands. There are two seasons which are known as the high season and low season and the high season is the most popular time of the year. The high season falls from end of December to mid-April and the low season starts from end of April to early December. There is more rainfall during the low season but there are many advantages of travelling during this time period. Hotels, flights and domestic seaplanes are a lot cheaper during the offseason. There are fewer people and you can have the beach all to yourself during most days. Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi or any other Maldives beach resort love to accommodate clients during the offseason since there are not many people coming into the country at this time of the year. Most of the hotels and resorts have many different wet weather activities so you wouldn't feel like you are missing out on living it in the Maldives.


Booking the flight

The flights to the Maldives can be rather expensive. If you are booking the flights it is always a good idea to book them if you intend to travel during the high season. The closer you get to the date the higher the air ticket will be. The flights for the low season, on the other hand, go on sale closer to the dates. Since the airlines want to attract people to fly to the Maldives during the offseason, closer to the flight dates the airlines slash down prices and there are amazing offers involved in these. However, when selecting the flights they offer flight and lodging packages with a hotel in the Maldives, but it is wise to avoid these as you will not be getting the comforts you desire.


Book an all-inclusive hotel or resort

Similar to the flights most of the hotels and resorts also offer different discounts due to the drop in the number of guests. Most hotels will offer all-inclusive packages which is what you should opt for. This will include all three meals a comfortable room and other discount offers the hotel offers.


Pick the speedboat over the seaplane

The seaplane is delightful but the trip is short and sweet. The speedboat will allow you to enjoy the trip to the fullest while you get to witness a stunning view of the Maldives islands.


Pack wisely

There are shopping malls, markets and boutiques at most of the resorts, but the products can be extremely expensive. Hence, be wise when you pack your bags as you do not want to leave your bathing suit, sunscreen, hat or sunglasses behind.


Like, share and comment

During the offseason since there aren't many people, everything is priced almost half the original price. Since the hotels and restaurants are interested in attracting more people they offer discounts and offers to customers who do live reviews, like, comment and share their posts on social media or their personal blogs, in order to attract more people during the low season.
