I dont even think biya will be within that, not for all inclusive in peak season. Vilamendhoo is around £3.5k for a week all inclusive.

Can someone advise the best travel agents am best speaking to please ? I did do the Maldives in 2011 in April for £3800 staying at Meedhupparu and that was with Thomson but it doesnt look like they fly from Manchester anymore. Could stretch to £4000.

You would have to stop over in Dubai or Abu Dhabi etc, nothing direct unless you fly from Gatwick.

From Manchester you have Emirates, Etihad, Qatar, and Turkish Airlines are starting later in the year. All include transit via a hub as Jody says.

Other than that it's travel to London - which can take longer than one of the above options, providing you pick the right flights with shortish transit times..

Going in early May will improve your odds which are stacked against you at the moment .

Maybe dropping to 10 days but you are still going to struggle .

Check all the usuals ,Hayes & Jarvis ,Kuoni , Cosmos ,etc or Thomson from Gatwick and see what's available . There are independents that can give a bit of a discount if you find anything close to budget .
