Visit the Maldives for under $400 return with the latest Scoot sale
Fares to the island just keep getting cheaper and cheaper.
Flights to the Maldives are back on sale with Scoot and this time the airline has taken the price down to as low as $398 return.
This is even lower than the airline's usual under-$500 starting price and there's a reason why. Travel dates are during the rainy season between May and September.
While this might put a dampener on your holiday plans, the wet season is still a good time for snorkelling and diving and for those homebodies who don't mind spending their holiday indoors.
Sample flights include the Gold Coast to the Maldives from $398 return, Perth to the Maldives from $418 return, Melbourne to the Maldives from $483 return and Sydney to the Maldives from $493 return.
We found these flights on I Want That Flight where they are available for a limited time only.
How good are these fares?
Price-wise, these are some of the cheapest flights we've ever seen to the Maldives. Weather-wise they're some of the worst travel dates you could pick, so we're on the fence with this one.
As a resolve, we checked out Skyscanner's best price calendar during the dry season months and discovered that a little pre-planning and early booking can currently secure you flights to the Maldives next March from $481 return.
At just $100 more, it's a small price to pay for picture-perfect weather.
