The Maldives is an excellent family holiday destination, with many resorts offering child-friendly accommodation, and direct flights are available from the UK with British Airways for added convenience. Many of the Tropic Breeze team have travelled long haul with children on several occasions, giving them first-hand experience of the particular challenge this represents!
Maldives holiday prices are particulary reasonable during the summer period when there are plenty of special offers on top of low season prices, and you will find many resorts much quieter than the Mediterranean. For added value consider an all-inclusive resort, so that your final bill will not be swollen by numerous ice creams and cokes! Children under 12 also receive a significant discount on flight prices, plus we can usually pre-arrange seating on scheduled flights plus pre-booked children's meals.
