05 Expert Travel Advice to Save Big on 2021 Holiday Plans



1. Fast Forward 2020 and take a much needed break from the stressful reality. TREAT YOURSELF to the best

While being in isolation helps you spend more time with the family we all agree it adds up to the frustration of uncertainty and the feeling to break away. To recover from the stressful beginning of the year the best remedy anyone can prescribe is a rejuvenating holiday towards the end of the year to heal and start 2021 fresh.  Here are a few tips to be inspired...

  • There are hundreds of resorts in the Maldives  Make sure to choose the resort that will make you feel most at home
  • Choose based on all your likes and dislikes. Let the travel agent address the millions of questions you have
  • You want privacy? you want kids friendly? you want extravagant? … make sure not to miss out
  • Read reviews about resorts, about the service about the insider tips and be in the know

2. Take the self isolation time to plan a royal holiday. A PERFECT HOLIDAY isn’t a myth anymore

Since most will be working from home or spending more time indoors this really is your chance to compare all the amazing travel deals on offer for later this year and 2021 . As the industry is suffering from the mounting cancellations and refunds it really works in the favour of the traveler to benefit from some crazily discounted holiday deals for some of the best resorts in the world e.g. Maldives luxury five star resorts . Don’t miss out on any details when planning your holiday. Travel agents have ample time in their hands now more than ever. Use their services to tick off every tiny box and make it grand.

  • There are different types of villas. See what fits you best or if you can afford a split stay in different villa categories so your stay is complete
  • Get virtual tours, images, videos of these villas so that you can get a feel as to whether you really like it
  • If you are celebrating a special occasion make sure the special amenities and benefits are included
  • Explore the spa menus and activity brochures so that you can fill your holiday with relaxing as well as adventure filled activities
  • Explore the dining options and decide which restaurant you want to dine to suit your mood
  • Make sure your holiday is nothing short of ROYALTY

4. Save Big When Opportunities are Knocking on you Doort. 50 % Off … TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE?

The unpaid leave, the excess grocery stocking, kids staying at home all have their own impact on the family income and our bank accounts so a holiday shouldn’t be an added burden. The best way still go on a holiday without having to go overbudget is by grabbing those early bird discounts that come with interest free holiday installment plans stretching for as many months as possible.

5.Cover your free of charge cancellations or refundable holidays. PEACE OF MIND is key!

If 2020 has taught us anything that’s how unpredictable places or situations can be. So make sure to only choose holiday deals that offers you guaranteed flexible cancellation periods and a generous refund policy to avoid the stress later. 

  • The resort cancellation policies have never been as flexible as they have been this year.
  • Make sure you are aware of these policies so that you have the peace of mind and security of your fund if a refund is needed


6.Origin country travel advise and the end destinations immigration policies. BE IN THE KNOW!

Traveling post COVID-19 can be really different to how we used to travel before that. You can never have enough updated and accurate information of the travel safety and government policies of the destination. Always make sure to refer to your smart traveler websites, ask your travel agents about the immigration policies of Maldives how they have changed and how it could affect you. 



Nothing should stop you from living your life, discovering new places and experiencing new things. Now that we have all come to realize how uncertain everything is, we certainly want to seize every day and make the best of our short time here on this beautiful earth full of wonders and marvels. But we must travel responsibly and sustainably.

To more travels and happy memories!  Explore exciting offers
