Maafushivaru - Kuoni


Is there any way to book to go this Island other than through Kuoni. My concern is that there is no competition for them on pricing and they can price the trip as they see fit. has anyone managed to obtain a discount or book through a third party at a more competitive price.

Thanx Kerry

We have booked Maa for this year, the only price we could get was from Kuoni. However we did not look at independants. Good luck if you can find anybody.

Think it's a Kuoni exclusive, the only other people that will offer it will also be Kuoni agents but that doesn't mean you can't play them off against each other! Marks Travel will normally undercut the main Kuoni price but there are other agents too - Travel Designers, Blue Bay.

yes, Kuoni can effectively do what they want with the price and we can see that over the past 6-8 months....they have!

We booked through Marks Travel, their quote was less than Kuoni but not by much. Good luck.

No other way to book Maff , not even direct with them , believe me i have tried and kuoni have raised their prices not the islands , best you can do is a kuoni agent where you should get @6% discount ......................

Dear Kez56,

We hope we can explain and help you to book. A Kuoni exclusive means we have negotiated best rates possible and ensure the high level of Kuoni service is provided. Our prices are competitive verses other similar Maldives islands otherwise we would not be able to sell Maafushivaru.

We choose properties for our exclusive range as they consistently rank amongst the most recommended by Kuoni customers and Trip Advisor reviewers. You can book Maafushivaru online, call our call-centre or visit one of our stores or via your local travel agent.

Happy holidays.

But Marks travel will beat Kuoni on price. Just ring both to get quotes and take it from there.

Don't tell him/her that .... lol

Good to see more customer services looking on here though , many thanks and whilst Thomson continue to get a bad name maybe they will look in and say something .

I can't remember anyone having too many issues with Kuoni on here ..But I may have opened a can of worms and someone will come back with a problem ....

This is a place to air the pro's and con's though and it is good to get a balanced view as it is a whole lot of money for most of us .

We booked Maafushivaru through Travel Collection (another Kuoni agent) last year. They were able to undercut Kuoni's price by about £500 at that time.
