Maldives overwater bungalow from £313
The Maldives is usually very expensive but there are some amazing offers and few restrictions on entry. However, you will have to quarantine for 14 days on your return at the moment. The latest offer with Secret Escapes is one of the cheapest I have seen for an overwater bungalow when you look at what is included. Prices per villa start at £313 per night which includes:
- Accommodation in a Sunrise Water villa with Private Pool and Jacuzzi
- Minimum seven-night stay required
- Breakfast included
- Return speedboat transfers from Velana International Airport
- 20 pre-selected cocktails per villa
- Set lunch per person, twice per stay (beverages not included)
- Set dinner per person, twice per stay (beverages not included)
- Sunset cruise per person, once per stay
- Fishing trip per person, once per stay
- 20% discount on spa treatments (not applicable with ongoing promotions)
- Complimentary snorkeling equipment rental
- Check-in is at 2pm and check-out at 12pm
- FREE cancellation up to eight days before check-in date
You can stay until April 2022, so it gives you plenty of scope if you are concerned about booking anything too soon. The hotel gets 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor.

Virgin double miles
Virgin recently announced that they would be changing Virgin miles into Virgin Points that never expire. To celebrate, the airline was offering double points (miles) on all Virgin Atlantic flights purchased directly (via virginatlantic.com or the Customer Centre) from 24 September up to and including 1 October 2020. THis has now been extended to 15 October.
This can be a flight in any cabin, to any destination, in any class. You don’t need to register for the promotion. Flights must be both operated by Virgin Atlantic and marketed by Virgin Atlantic (flight number starts with VS) to be applicable for the bonus points. Codeshare flights are excluded from this offer.
Reward tickets are excluded from the offer, but not Points Plus Money bookings which are applicable for bonus points. Gold members (60%) and Silver members (30%) will still earn tier bonus points.
