If the Maldives is your favourite beach destination in the world, then now you have all the more reasons to rejoice. Now the Maldives is the first country in the world to offer a loyalty rewards program to a traveller. Regular visitors to the Maldives can now earn a lot of perks. Maldives Border Miles will reward tourists for routine visits, with members progressing up three tiers: Aida (Bronze), Antara (Silver) and Abaarana (Gold). These three names come from Divehi, the country’s primary local language. You can earn loyalty points from December 1 this year. Clearly, the government is leaving no stone unturned to lure back tourists.
