Amtrak is currently offering a discount of $50 on the purchase of a USA Rail Pass, allowing travelers to explore the country at a lower cost. The pass enables passengers to take 10 different rides within a 30-day period. This promotion is available until January 25th, and the pass is priced at $449.
According to Amtrak Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer Eliot Hamlisch, the USA Rail Pass is an excellent option for those seeking adventure and a convenient way to travel across towns or the entire country. This sale provides an opportunity for riders to save money while discovering hidden gems, revisiting favorite destinations, or reconnecting with loved ones.
The pass must be utilized within 30 days of purchase, but travelers have the flexibility to activate it up to 120 days after the purchase date. There are no blackout dates for the pass, allowing passengers to travel whenever they choose.
Passengers who book with the USA Rail Pass can reserve a coach seat, but upgrades to business class or private rooms are not available.
It’s important to note that the pass is valid on all trains except the Acela train, the Auto Train, Canadian stations on the Maple Leaf train, and the Thruway Bus Series 7000-7999.
In addition to the USA Rail Pass, Amtrak also offers two other multi-ride passes: a multi-ride option for commuters traveling to and from the same destination, and a California Rail Pass priced at $159, which allows travelers to hop on and off several California trains within a 21-day period.
This sale coincides with the reintroduction of Amtrak’s seasonal Winter Park Express train, catering to ski enthusiasts traveling between Denver and Colorado’s Winter Park Resort. It also follows the company’s recent fare structure changes, introducing new fare options of “value” and “flex” while eliminating the previous “saver,” “value,” and “flexible” fares.
