The Bahamas Tourism Agency is ramping up efforts to attract as many tourists as possible to the island over the next few months.

Some of the offerings include additional flights from the United States, discounted hotel rates, and even a local ride sharing service to get travelers around Nassau. If you’re looking for a vacation idea within the next week or so, check out some of the options being offered below.

Flights

American Airlines has added five additional flights split between three of its hubs within the U.S. The airline will introduce nonstop, weekly flights from O’Hare International Airport (ORD) in Chicago to Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS); two weekly, seasonal flights from Miami International Airport (MIA) to Freeport, Grand Bahama (FPO); and year-round service from Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) in North Carolina to North Eleuthera Airport (ELH) and Marsh Harbour Airport in Abaco (MHH).

Bahamasair, the country’s national carrier, added an additional route between Miami International Airport (MIA) and South Bimini Airport (BIM), with service four times a week on Wednesday, Friday, Sunday and Monday. The airline is still offering introductory fares, so it would be a good time to book to take advantage of the discount.

Delta Air Lines also added an additional daily flight between John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Nassau (NAS).

Hotels

If you’re looking specifically for a hotel deal, there are a number of booking websites currently offering discounted rated if you’re planning to visit within the next month or two. Some of the sites include TripAdvisor, Booking.com, and Expedia. The tourism agency also has a number of package deals available on their website.

One hotel chain that pops to mind when you think about The Bahamas is the Atlantis. Rates are currently going for as low as US $155 per night depending on when you book and where you plan to stay, but these discounted rates only last for the remaining of May and the first two weeks of June. The SLS Baha Mar is also worth checking out as they recently underwent extensive renovations last year, gaining them a spot in both Condé Nast Traveler’s “Hot List” and Travel + Leisure’s 2018 It List.

Ride Sharing

Many countries outside of the United States and Europe have ride sharing apps similar to Uber and Lyft. If you’re looking to get around Nassau, there is a local company called Bahamas Ride which offers a ride hailing service similar to the big names mentioned previously, offering great service at rates slightly better than the regular taxi service.
