You can nab a great deal to the Bahamas at the moment. A huge fare sale has flights available to the idyllic Caribbean nation at deeply discounted prices for travel during the winter. And while it’s always a good time to visit the Bahamas, it’s even more appealing when Old Man Winter has gripped much of the U.S.

Dozens of cities are involved in this deal, including Atlanta, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Minneapolis and Philadelphia. JetBlue, United, and American have some main cabin fares available at a discount. That means you get a carry-on and seat assignment. But we saw the best prices for the basic economy tier, which is still attractive given the savings.

The sale fares are for travel between January-October 2022. As always with deals like this, the more flexible you are with your travel plans, the better chance you have of getting a great price.

American had sub-$200 fares from Miami (MIA) to Nassau across much of January, like this Basic Economy deal we found for $194.

Austin (AUS) to Nassau in March is a real steal at the moment. We found round-trip fares on United for just $307, almost half off normal prices for that route.

How about this deal out of Philadelphia (PHL) to Nassau — a February trip on Delta for just $274! That’s a huge savings, more than $500 cheaper than usual.

It’s a basic economy ticket, but even if you wanted to pay the $80 to upgrade to main cabin, it would still be a sweet bargain.

Bottom Line

If you’ve been dying to visit the Atlantis or Baha Mar resorts on Nassau — or simply craving the intoxicating beauty of the Bahamas — this is your chance to do it at a major discount.
