Beach deal alert: Fly nonstop to the Bahamas for as low as $258

With beautiful beaches, a delightful culinary scene and vibrant nightlife, the Bahamas is always a hot ticket item for travelers.

Now, there’s a new fare sale offering great prices on flights from Baltimore and Washington, D.C., to Nassau, Bahamas, that’ll get you to paradise on the cheap — some itineraries are even available for half of their usual cost. Even better, the window for this sale encompasses travel from now through February, which means you can book an escape from the chilly Northeast winter weather at a steep discount.

The fares in this sale are for basic economy tickets. You will get a free carry-on bag on American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and JetBlue (provided that you travel after Sept. 6; prior to that date, a gate-checked carry-on will cost $65), but not on United Airlines. You can only bring a personal item if you purchase a basic economy ticket with United Airlines, and checked bags start at $40 each way (there’s an extra $25 fee if you gate-check).

Some of the lowest fares spotlighted in this deal come from booking through an online travel agency.
