5 Tips for First Time Travellers To Maldives Should Know:
  • When booking airline tickets, you should keep in mind that FRIDAY in the Maldives is a day off and if you are planning a public ferry transfer to your island on the day of arrival - this time the ferries do not operate and you will have to stay one night in Male. This note does not apply to speedboats and seaplanes.
  • WiFi is not always free in the Maldives. Check with your resort before you arrive to see if it's included. Otherwise, you'll have to fork out for expensive internet packages that cost USD 150 per week.
  • Check your arrival times. If your international flight arrives after 4:00 p.m. you'll need to spend a night on Male or at a hotel on Airport Island.
  • The Maldives is one of two countries in the world with a 100% Muslim population. Keep this in mind if you're visiting during Ramadan and cover up when visiting important religious sites.
  • There are a few rules you have to follow while on the inhabited islands. Public displays of affection are against the law, pork and alcohol are not for sale, and revealing clothing is discouraged.
  • But the good news is that once you're stay on the resort islands, the above doesn't apply.
Below are the top tips which will save you a lot of money:
  • For long-haul flights (e.g. from USA), you should book three to five months before your trip. For quick journeys (e.g. from Europe or Asia), it's a good idea to book about two months out.
  • Sign up for low fare alerts. Expert Fare Analysts email you reports of the best fares, departing from your airports of choice.
  • Use Incognito Window when searching the tickets. Usually booking sites track your cookies. They take notice of your searching patterns, and then they raise fares the next time you search for a flight. When searching for the best airfare, always make sure to open up an Incognito Window in Google Chrome. That way, booking sites won't be able to monitor your search history and cookie storage, and you'll end up with better, cheaper search results!
  • When it comes to finding the best flight deals, Sunday is the new “it” day.
  • Be flexible and use fare calendars, buy two one-way flights, book directly. Sometimes, it's cheaper to book your flight directly through the airline's website.
  • Travel in the off season. If you decide to travel in the off/low season, when there's less demand, you'll save a big chunk of change!
  • Use budget airlines. In any case, flying with budget airlines can be a great, easy way to pay less for airfare.
  • Take the longer route. If you'd rather save money than time, choosing longer journeys can save you hundreds.
