Companions fly free to the Bahamas through June 30, 2011

Back by popular demand, the Islands Of The Bahamas are again offering a free companion air credit. The specifics allow for fairly easy travel – the credit of up to $300 applies to any traveler booking before December 1, 2010, for stays of four or more nights. Travel must be completed by June 30, 2011, and some blackout dates, including November 23 through 29, December 23 through January 2 and March 3 through April 30, 2011, apply.

Although obviously a ploy to drive tourism to the islands, it’s an effective one – the islands are a quick flight from most major East Coast destinations and the extra cash is certainly added incentive to book a warm-weather trip this winter or spring.
