The Maldives are an exotic and amazing vacation destination and usually visited by the elite and upper crust. However, just because some people choose to pay list price for their Maldives vacation doesn’t mean you have to! There are actually many ways you can find affordable Maldives accommodations and vacations. Consider the following tips when you are planning your vacation and you just might find you are able to save hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
The Maldives are beautiful all year round, but if you travel during the so-called low season you will be able to get better rates on resorts and on flights. Usually low season is considered May through November.
Many travel websites offer package deals where travelers can get a package deal on their resort, airfare, car rental, and more. Many times it is worthwhile to check these travel websites to see if you can get a better deal than paying for each service a la carte.
Groupon has started offering Groupon vacations, which are discounted vacations worldwide. You can’t find a Maldives Groupon vacation at the drop of a hat, but if you want to travel to the Maldives, have a flexible schedule, and see a Maldives Groupon you should snatch it up!

Please post when/if there is a Groupon or special through any travel websites. I have never seen either and I subscribe to about 10 travel sites. We are hoping to come next year and are looking for overwater villa with plunge pool and perhaps half the time in a beach villa with private pool.
I dout you will see Groupon offering any maldives packages due to the way Groupon works. As an advertiser on Groupon you have to give them half of what ever you sell the product for. In the case of a Maldives holiday there simply isn’t enough margin in the holiday. We would only make 10% on a flight so we couldn’t give 50% to Groupon.
However if you just wanted accommodation this becomes possible. We are currently trying to advertise some amazing accommodation only deals on sites like Groupon. If you’d like to know more let me know and i’ll be happy to share.
