Planning a trip abroad can be a bit tricky – especially when you’re looking to travel to an almost off the grid country like the Maldives, not to mention the false impression of how pricey travelling to Maldives is. Luckily for you, Addu offers all the bright and shiny tagline elements of beauty the Maldives is famous.
You’re likely to begin your adventure at home while on the hunt for the most reasonably priced airfares. If you’re not looking to travel too fancy, we’d recommend you book your tickets with a budget airline to the Colombo and then fly over to Addu directly with the only scheduled international airline currently operating in Addu. However, if you’re traveling from the South African region, you might also want to look into your options with South African Airways, which makes chartered appearances in Gan International Airport, Addu.
Both airlines offer business class and first travel options in case you might want and upgrade.
On the other hand, if you’d rather travel via Male’, the capital of Maldives, we’ll let you in on a little secret. Most guest houses and resorts have a special deal with the domestic carriers to give you guys a special airfare rate if you book your stay with them. So make sure you check with your local accommodation to get the best domestic travel rates.
Now if you’re a person of the sea and wish to sail your way to Addu, we’ve got you covered on that as well. Make sure you contact the Maldives Customs Service as well as the Maldives Immigration to make sure you’ve got everything covered to set sail to Addu.
