The Maldives is the dream holiday destination for many people during current times because it’s the safest, exotic location to rejuvenate the dull, boring lifestyle.
Apparently, only a few get a chance to enjoy Maldives islands which are rightly known as a vacation paradise. Even though the Visa for Maldives procedure is very simple, yet many get confused or fail to grab the opportunity to plan holiday packages to the land of coral and reefs.
Unfortunately, many travel agents have misguided the wanderlusts to seek personal benefits, but Roaming routes are different. It is a leading travel agent in India with more than 8 years of experience planning national and international holidays for Indian citizens. They have local acquaintances in the Maldives and hence are well informed and resourceful to prepare Maldives holiday packages that are competent, affordable and comfortable.
Anurag Kothari, the wingman of Roaming routes, has planned more than 200-holiday packages and is the best person to guide us with a travelling guide to the Maldives. When asked to share information on how to plan a Maldives holiday tour in the budget, he graciously bestowed his moments of experience, which are as follows.
“Maldives for many is a small beautiful island in the Indian ocean, but in reality, Maldives is a cluster of islands known as atolls. A number marks every atoll, and the count is 22,” says Mr. Kothari.
The incompetent travel agent will ask you to land at Male, international Airport( capital of Maldives ) and will book your stay at some remote island, which will be located on another corner of the country, which simply means you’ll have to travel in the sea for almost 500km. You will need a speed boat or seaplane for this transit, which will add extra price to your Maldives tour in budget.
Since Roaming route has local acquaintance and are well informed, they are aware of the airports in the country, hence guide the guest to choose the appropriate one for their boardings. This helps their guest to save time and money.

- Islands with the resorts
- Uninhibited island
- islands with sandbanks
The traveller prefers to visit the Maldives to enjoy snorkelling or water sports or enjoy a luxurious stay.
