Airfare is so expensive for a variety of reasons right now, including the cost of jet fuel. That means deals may be harder to find: the travel booking platform Hopper says trips in February, March, and April will cost 13% more than last year.

But if you think there aren’t still flight deals out there, think again! Even for travelers planning last-minute spring break trips, there are some solid deals out there. If you want to save money and you live on the East Coast, there’s a little-known hack to find the best Delta SkyMiles deals for some last-minute tickets.

The Bahamas is one of our favorite destinations, and this is also a nonstop flight, making it a great choice.

Sample dates: Tuesday, March 7 – Tuesday, March 14

Miami to Providenciales, Turks and Caicos:
