Travel around the country for a month by train.
After spending a year with our faces pressed against our screens dreaming of all the beautiful destinations we want to visit around the country, we finally get to do it. And Amtrak is making the prospect of exploring our picturesque landscapes more desirable—and attainable—by offering a 30-day rail pass for $229. The offer takes $200 off the usual $499 pass, giving you 10 trips to anywhere the network allows in the country.
Trains are by far a more leisurely means of travel and at that price, it’s far cheaper than renting a car. There’s nothing quite like sipping on a glass of wine amongst the clamor of fellow travelers while gazing at the country’s diverse splendor through the window.
Amtrak’s 500 destinations include a whole bunch of bucket list destinations, meaning you could add Yellowstone Park to your itinerary, see the Great Gushing Geysers, pull into New Orleans for some world-class jazz, marvel at the red rocks at the Grand Canyon, or travel north to take in California’s gorgeous coastline to see the giant sequoias. You could even tick off these incredible stops along the way or do part of this epic Amtrak journey around the whole of America.
Once you make the purchase, you have 120 days to book your first journey and the clock starts ticking from the day of the first train. There offer comes with flexibility, allowing you to change routes during your trip. However, there are additional things to take note of. Namely, the pass can’t be upgraded to business class and it’s not valid for Amtrak’s high-speed Acela routes or Auto Train.
“We want to offer customers a truly unique way to travel this summer,” said Amtrak Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing and Revenue Officer Roger Harris in a press release. “With the new electronic USA Rail Pass, customers can take advantage of a great value and newly streamlined web and mobile app interfaces to make managing personalized travel plans convenient and easy.”
The offer ends on June 22 and you can find out more here: Amtrak.com/USARailPass.
