Maldives

Discover

The beautiful white sandy beaches and an amazing underwater world make the Maldives one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world. You might find the best beaches in the world here. The Maldives consists of 1,200 islands and each island is surrounded by perfect beaches. The beach here is whiter than white and almost nowhere else in the world can you find clearer blue water than here. This alone should be enough to leave for this paradise in the sea. In addition, the underwater world is among the most beautiful in the world. And you will find all of this on small, tropical islands where you can really unwind.

Practical information

Itineraries While we intend to adhere to the route described in your contract, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion, it may be necessary, or desirable to make alterations.
The contract is a general guide to the tour, region, and proposed itinerary any mention of specific wildlife is by no means a guarantee that they will be encountered, as we can never guarantee what mother nature has to offer us.
Additionally, any travel times listed are approximations only and subject to vary due to local circumstances. 

Accommodation If a hotel is unexpectedly fully booked, we will always contact you before booking an alternative. We will always offer alternatives of the same level and value for money.
Kindly note that water is scarce in many parts of the world, so we always recommend taking short showers and reuse towels if possible.

Luggage You will be on the move a lot, so our advice is to pack as lightly as possible. Your baggage should be restricted to one medium-sized rolling bag, duffle bag, or backpack, maximum 15kg, plus a daypack. Luggage limits on airlines are strictly enforced and space on vehicles is limited.

•  During the day you can easily wear bikinis on the beach; just choose your favorite bikini or bathing suit and a sarong, cover-up, or beach dress and you’re good to go! Remember, the sun is strong here and there isn’t really a place to hide except in the shade of the palm trees. So bring the most powerful sunscreen you can find and wear a big hat. You’ll be walking around barefoot during most of the day. However, in the evening people like to dress up a bit with a nice evening dress and flat. Leave the high heels at home.
• Insect repellent;

Laundry Hand washing of clothes can be done at most of the hotels where you will stay. We recommend you bring a nonpolluting/biodegradable soap, as well as a roll of simple string to act as a drying line for your clothes. If you arrive in the late afternoon, or if there is poor weather, it may not be possible for your clothes to completely dry. Your hotels may also have a laundry service available at an additional fee.

Visa & Entry requirements A visa is required for this destination. All travellers will need a PCR negative report, which has been taken no more than 96 hours before departure. Citizens of all nationalities can obtain a visa on arrival in the Maldives for a stay of up to 30 days, which can be extended in the Maldives.

Insurance A travel insurance is highly recommended when traveling. When selecting a travel insurance policy please bear in mind that we highly recommend good medical coverage and repatriation and emergency rescue. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage, and personal effects.
We don’t issue any insurances; however, we recommend using http://www.worldnomads.com/

Health We recommend you contact your family physician, or your local travel clinic for the most up-to-date health information at least three months before departure or in case of a last-minute tour, as soon as you confirm your travels. Travellers are also advised to carry a basic first-aid kit and hand sanitizers/antibacterial wipes on their travels. Medical facilities are basic throughout these countries. For your own safety, we strongly recommend that you advise your local guide of any medical condition that may affect you while travelling. Your local guide will be able to inform you of local health advisories (e.g. drinking water quality). Please ensure you have all the inoculations recommended by your doctor.

Allergies and dietary restrictions This is something we take very seriously. Upon booking with us, we will send you a form in which you will be able to indicate any dietary preference or restriction or any specific request you might have. We will then provide that information in advance to all the hotels.

Safety and Security Many national governments provide a regularly updated advice service on safety issues involved with international travel. We recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest travel information before departure.
We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while travelling, for the safe keeping of your passport, air tickets, bank cards, cash, and other valuable items. Leave your valuable jewelry at home - you won't need it while travelling. Many of the hotels we use have safety deposit boxes which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage.
Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of your group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our local guides have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes. 

Photography and drone laws Please refrain from taking photos of police stations, airports, bus stations, immigration or border crossings, army barracks and personnel, or any government building. It is against the law and will result in the minimum of your film and camera being confiscated. The use of drones in national parks in the Maldives is allowed when having the right permits. the request for drone operations must be submitted at least 3-4 weeks ahead.

Electricity On the Maldives the power plugs and sockets are of type D and G. The standard voltage is 230 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.

Religion Islam is the state religion in the Maldives

Climate Maldives experiences a tropical monsoon climate with year-round warm weather. Temperatures average between 26 °C and 29 °C throughout the year, with the warmest temperatures occurring between March and April. Winter is essentially non-existent in the Maldives with the lowest temperature sitting at a balmy 24 °C.

Best time to visit The best time to visit the Maldives is between November and April. The climate is warm and tropical, with average highs at a consistent 29°C to 31°C year-round and average lows rarely falling below 24°C. January to April are the driest months, with little rain and low humidity, making this peak season at the resorts. Temperatures are still warm from May to December, but rain is more likely and there is a risk of storms. However, even during this period, there are usually long spells of bright sunshine. Attractive prices and offers mean this is still a common time to visit.

Plastic bags Plastic bags are banned from entering the Maldives. However, plastics carrier items known as “Ziplock bags” that are specifically used to carry toiletries will be permitted as they are expected to remain in the permanent possession of visitors and are not expected to be disposed of in the country. 

Money and currency The currency of Maldives is the rufiyaa (Rf), which is divided into 100 areas. Most resort and travel expenses will be billed in dollars, and most visitors never even see rufiyaa, as resort bills are settled by credit card and you'll never need to pay for things in cash.
Every traveler is different and therefore spending money requirements will vary. Some travellers may drink more than others while other travellers like to purchase more souvenirs than most. Please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, shopping, and tipping. We always recommend carrying enough cash if you would like to pay for something in a remote place and the credit card machine cannot connect to any network. Please keep in mind that credit- or debit card payments may be subject to an extra charge, varying from 3.5% - 5%. 

Tipping It's a good form to leave a tip for your room staff and in smarter resorts your thakuru (butler). Give any tips to the staff personally, not to the hotel cashier – US dollars, euros, and local currency are equally acceptable. 

Dress code With the sun shining year-round and high temperatures, you can pack your bag with your most beautiful bikinis and your favorite summer dresses and clothes. Leave winter clothes and worries at home!
The Maldives is a Muslim country; while bathing suits and summer clothing are tolerated on the major resort islands, you need to cover up if you’re staying at a local-owned guesthouse or resort. Nudity (like topless sunbathing) is against the law.
If you visit the capital Malé or one of the islands where the locals live during your trip you should dress more conservatively.
