Few destinations rival Barbados, especially at these prices…

Of all the sun soaked, crystal blue water destinations in the Caribbean – few compare to Barbados. Perhaps it’s that the waters are extra crystal, the rum is extra strong and the coastline is borderline pristine, but the island nation knows no equal. Winter is coming and that means it’s high time to plan your next great tan, so why not hit up these $199+ round trip deals to Barbados from all over the U.S?

The Flight Deals

JetBlue and American Airlines are battling it out for your Barbados flight bucks. Both airlines have launched aggressive sales from all over the U.S., starting at just $199 all in. There are fantastic flight deals to be had from New York and Florida, with many well below average deals available from Boston, Austin, Chicago and San Diego. Don’t forget, you can always use your credit card points to book flights with cash, and using a card like Chase Sapphire Reserve, you’d pay just 13.5k points round trip for a $200 flight.

The Sunny Dates

These deals are available from October thru March, putting you in Barbados right in the middle of peak season at excellent rates. Expect high 80’s throughout the entire date range, and if you want the lowest chance of rain, try to aim for December onward. Having said that, people love Barbados in October when the crowds are half their usual size. More beach, less people – all good.
