Skip the sea flight

When influencers are in the Maldives, you'll often see them journeying in seaplanes. According to Condé Nast Traveller, the seaplane round trip costs anywhere between £450 to £830.

CNT adds:

If you are on a budget trip, this is not the way to reach your destination. A speedboat can be the better option. It will range anywhere from around £150 for a 20-minute journey.
