A cheap holiday in the Maldives does not exist I hear most people say, Maldives on a budget is impossible, but that is not necessarily the case as more and more people are discovering.
First Find a Cheap Flight to Male:
First of all you need to find a cheap flight to Male (MLE), there are many options from London, Oman Air via Muscat and Turkish Airlines via Istanbul come in with fares below £500. Etihad via Abu Dhabi or Emirates via Dubai have more frequent, convenient connections and still great value for money, Sri Lankan Airlines offer flights via Colombo with the option of a free stop over, the perfect option for a twin center holiday combining Sri Lanka and The Maldives.
How would you find Perfect Transfer in Male:
Most of the luxury more remote islands offer sea plane transfers, this can bump up the price of your trip considerably, to keep costs down choose an island or resort that has speedboat transfers, or even better there is a ferry system around the islands on traditional “Dhoni“, although very slow they are also very cheap and a great way of seeing up close and personal the Atolls. Atolltransfer.com is a great resource offering all types of transfers.
