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

Now, there’s a new fare sale on flights from Baltimore and Washington, DC to Nassau, Bahamas, that will get you to paradise on the cheap — some travel plans are even available for half their normal price. Even better, this sale window includes travel from now through February, which means you can book at a discounted rate through the cold Northeast winter weather.

These sale fares are for Basic Economy tickets. You’ll get a free carry-on bag on American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and JetBlue (if you travel after September 6; before that date, a gate-checked carry-on will cost $65), but not on United Airlines. You can only bring a personal item if you buy a basic economy ticket with United Airlines, and checked bags start at $40 each way (there’s an additional $25 fee if you gate-check).

Some of the lowest fares featured in these deals come from booking through an online travel agency.
