The Maldives has never been considered a budget tourist destination, but there is one month when you can buy the cheapest flights, and it is one of the best times to visit the islands.
Travel experts Destination2 did some calculations and found that January is the best time to visit luxury resorts, including the Maldives, Dubai, and Thailand, the Daily Star writes.
If you are not tied to the dates of school holidays, January can be a great time to travel abroad as there are no more crowds of vacationers at this time, and the number of offers and thus their prices are pleasantly surprising.
For example, according to the data, you can buy airfare to the Maldives for £263 in January, which is £400 less than in August, which is the most expensive month for a vacation.
January is also one of the best months to visit the islands as the weather is usually hot and sunny with temperatures ranging from 24C to 31C.
