booking through Impex holidays. mal-dives.com. safe ???

Hi all,

I am planning a holiday in the Maldives and Impex holidays website : www.mal-dives.com is offering me the best deal.

However, I dont know if the company is legit. Can someone please help me know if it is safe to book my holiday through this company? Your help would be really appreciated.

Hi,

Their quote is $300 cheaper than the cheapest I had, however not as cheap as Impex Holidays.

Many thanks for the tip

Hello Jay

Because I personally love the Maldives and want everybody to have a great holiday (whomever they book with) - I am happy to take a look at things for you.

If it happens that the Impex quote is somehow miles better than ours then we will be upfront and tell you - we have of late found that some companies miss out vital components of your holiday booking (which get added on to your room bill) - and likewise we are happy to share this knowledge with you.

Can I suggest you send over the Impex quote and we will offer an honest opinion.

Cheers

Richard from PurelyMaldives

Hi Richard,

Many thanks for your input.

Returning to the Maldives after 25 years will be a dream come true (was a GO at Club Med back then).

You can check Impex quotes directly on their website or through an online agent (chat) as I got.

Sent Chelsea (from your office) an email this afternoon, hope to hear from her tomorrow.

Regards,

Jay

Hi Jay

I am sure you can keep looking and continuously find cheaper quotes but you can't buy peace of mind !!!

You will find Richard to be honest and up front so if his quote is close it maybe worth considering

Hello Jay

I have looked at the website and the difference is $14.50 per person.

I look forward to talking further tomorrow once you have decided who you would prefer to deal with.

Best of luck

Richard
