Hi. We had a fabulous holiday on Komandoo this May (our 2nd Maldives trip) and are starting to plan returning to Komandoo next year. We are limited to school holidays are planning to go in May half term again.
We went for honeymoon in May/June 2012 (Constance Moofushi) and were pretty lucky with the weather. We were v lucky this year too and only had about 2 hours of rain during one day, so going to take a risk again and go in May for our anniversary!
I've been getting quotes for 6 and 7 nights. We did 6 nights this year and paid £1550 each for a beach villa, all inclusive. 6 nights for 2015, cheapest is £1720 each, or 7 nights £1845 each. We only want to fly Emirates from Manchester so that's pushing it up a bit, but the flights are just over £800 each, which is a fair bit more than what we paid this year. I think we paid about £650.
My question is do we wait and see if the flight prices drop? We booked for this year in November last year (6 months before). But then do we risk Komandoo being fully booked? Of course, the flight price might not even drop at all! Leaning towards 7 nights this time too, we missed our connecting flight this year and lost almost a day on the island which wasn't great. Would appreciate any advice or if anyone wouldn't mind sharing the sorts of prices they pay for flights!
