Male

The King’s Island

Male is a popular bucket list holiday destination, described as the ultimate ideal beach destination offering luxury and serenity. Featuring crystal clear waters in all different shades of brilliant blue, with beautiful white sand and lovely weather for most of the year.

It is one of the smallest country capitals in the world and is the island Capital of the Maldives. The Maldives are a south Asian Island nation in the Indian Ocean made up of 26 atolls, located to the south and west of India and Sri Lanka. Male is not even six square kilometres in size and only takes a couple of hours to explore. With a casual atmosphere, tourists can visit the National Museum which features a golden domed Grand Friday mosque or the main market with fresh fruit, vegetables and recently caught fish. Fishing is one of the main industries in Male as well as tourism. The main waterfront promenade bustles with activity, with resort launches and ferries transporting locals and visitors to the many islands.

Flights from Auckland to Male can take about 17 hours or more. Contact your local Global Travel Network Agent to find the best possible airfares and suggestions to design your ideal holiday.

The Maldives is the lowest country in the world, with an average natural ground level of about 1.5 metres above sea level. Over 80 per cent of the nation’s land is made up of coral islands. It has about 187 species  of coral growing on the coral reefs in this part of the Indian ocean. It is home to about 1100 fish species , 21 species of whale and dolphin and 5 species of sea turtle.

About 200 of the islands in the Maldives are uninhabited by people, some of the islands are farming towns or fishing villages and some of the islands are not open for tourists. Some of the islands have reclaimed land or have man made areas. Most resorts in the Maldives have their own island and are perfect if you would like to unplug, unwind and relax with sun, sea, and sand as far as the eye can see.

We have been with the GTN team since they first started and they are professional, caring, willing to assist with any query and will go above and beyond to find fares to suit, even when we have the most ridiculous of destinations. Even in the hardest of times, they reach out to each and every one of their agents to make sure we are ok. Thanks for your ongoing support team.

A truly outstanding independent travel agency group and ticketing consolidator and one I am so proud to work alongside. The team at GTN are knowledgeable, helpful and just generally interested in your business success and offer support where others have failed. Highly recommend!

The Consolidation team at GTN are excellent to deal with.  They are efficient and friendly, and when there has been queries with airlines or airfares, they have always sought answers and found solutions to the problem wherever possible.  The QuikTravel system is easy to use, as well as the additional information on the system around commissions, airline contacts, policies, as well as the summary of recent changes in fares & rules from airlines.  GTN is an excellent partner, and the small personal nature of the team is a good fit for our business
