My husband and I want to book a trip to The Maldives, but didn’t realize the overwhelming amount of different resorts to choose from! Can someone recommend a good travel agent that can help us?? We are in the US if that makes a difference

TIA

Hi Jackie,

There are a number of Maldives specialist travel agents/tour operators based in the UK who deal with international clients; they can assist you in selecting the right resort for your budget and wishlist and with transfers to your resort from arrival in The Maldives. However they cannot assist with the booking of your flights as you're based in the US.

We have used Purely Maldives three times and would highly recommend them. Others you may wish to try who are highly recommended by members here are Simply Maldives, Magic of Maldives and Travelab.

The benefit of using these agents is that they have a wealth of knowledge and experience of Maldivian resorts, and as you say with so many to choose from their expertise and access to offers and deals which you may be able to take advantage of are priceless.

Here's a link to a thread in the "Top Questions on the Maldives" about Maldives Specialist travel agents:

I can also recommend TravelLab. They were brilliant in helping us find the right island for us and since booking, we have also booked several other holidays elsewhere with them.

Thank you so much! Would you recommend getting different quotes from different agents or are they usually about the same?

Sometimes they are usually the same, sometimes there is quite a bit of a difference. And sometimes, it's the different market too, As seen with Konotta, which apparently was cheaper for bookings made in the uk market while i know many resorts who are cheaper on the german market.

I hardly book in Switzerland as the prices are outrageous andii often wonder what certain resorts cost on the chinese market...

´Agree with Andreas, it' dependant on the resort, the platform or agent you are using and the country you are staying.

With regards to Konotta, even the "Expedia Pricing" was far below the German Tour Operator pricing!

So drawing a comprehensive comparison is mostly advantageous.
