I don’t usually do two travel deals in a row, but today’s deal from TravelZoo.com is absolutely bananas. Through Dec. 22 you can travel round-trip from Miami or Ft. Lauderdale to the Bahamas, and spend four nights in a beachside hotel there for just $199 per person.
Like I said: Bananas!
Not flying out of Florida? Various other starting points are available for a charge. For an extra $100, you can fly out of Detroit, for instance, and it’s an extra $150 if you’re flying out of New York City (the full list of cities is available at CheapCaribbean.com). And as TravelZoo notes, taxes and fees will add an additional $100 no matter what your departure point. So if you’re flying out of the Northeast the final bill is getting closer to $500, which I suppose is a bit less bananas. And to repeat, these rates are only good for travel through Dec. 22. If you’re traveling between Jan. 3 – March 2, it’s an extra $100.
Still, you’re getting roundtrip airfare and four nights at the Wyndham Nassau Resort, which features a private lagoon, an on-site casino and a swim-up bar at the oceanfront pool. It looks like you can also upgrade to an oceanview room if you book soon enough. And having been to the Bahamas, I can confirm that it’s a place you want to be.
If this sounds good to you, act fast – the deal expires Monday at midnight EST. Here’s the link again to the original TravelZoo posting, with instructions and promo code.
