After spending xmas there last year and paying £3500 for 2 weeks leaving on 25th Dec we tried everywhere trying to get the best deal and booking direct through First Choice came up the cheapest at £4064 for 2 weeks in a JLV leaving on 24th Dec (and we booked that back in January!)

Meeru's becoming very popular and the prices are jumping up quite a lot each year. I would start looking now to avoid any dissapointment if you definately want to go over xmas.

A couple that we met last year tried to rebook at Reception on meeru whilst we were there for this xmas but were told that they had to book once they were back home and they couldn't take any reservations on the island.

This may have changed now considering how popular the island has become and the amount of changes that have taken place so far so it's worth emailing them and asking them.

We did meet a couple that have an apartment in Male and whenever they go over to the maldives they book a flight, go to their apartment and call the islands to see if they have availibility. They managed to get a few days at Meeru when we were there so you must be able to book direct.

Theoretically doable but I got the clear impression when I asked about this myself that it's usually a non-starter. Remember the following.

- Tour Operators get discounts for block bookings of rooms, individuals won't.

- If you book yourself you'll be responsible for transfers and have to cover such situations as late arrivals/night stayovers in Male etc. all of which would be the normal worry of a Tour operator.

- If you book yourself you'll need to get flight only to the Maldives. Now I heard somewhere that you can do that with one charter airline (was it FC?) but normally you'd have to book via a scheduled airline. Usually this is expensive.

- Also if it made sense lots of people would do it, and they just don't. As it is the Reservations dept. on Meeru deals continously with several dozen Tour operators around the world, I think they'd balk at the idea of dealing personally with loads and loads of people directly.

...but there's no harm in asking Wink !

thanks, i think it will be a bit of a chew to be honest but the wife thinks we can do it. I know we can get flight only with emirates but i think meeru will charge a bit to stay there.
