Traveling by train is not only more environmentally friendly than any other means of transport, it's also a way to comfortably enjoy road trips without the traffic. If you’ve ever wanted to explore America’s stunning landscapes, Amtrak is now selling its 30-day USA Rail Pass at a discounted price. You can hop on and off trains across 500 destinations for just $299 per pass.
The USA Rail pass usually costs $499, but with $200 off, you can spend the extra cash on simply enjoying your vacation. The pass allows you to choose 10 trips from Amtrak’s 30 train routes throughout the U.S. and some of Canada. You can go on a train journey from Chicago to San Francisco, taking stops at Denver and Salt Lake City along the way. Other routes include the Coast Starlight that starts at Seattle and travels to Portland, Sacramento, and Los Angeles. Widely regarded as one of the most visually-stunning train routes, Amtrak says, “The dramatic snow-covered peaks of the Cascade Range and Mount Shasta, lush forests, fertile valleys and long stretches of Pacific Ocean shoreline provide a stunning backdrop for your journey.”
After you purchase your pass, it's valid for 120 days and you can start booking your journeys online. After you take your first trip, a 30-day limit kicks in. That means you’ll have a month to take your remaining nine train journeys, so why not just stay on the road?
Ready for an adventure? You can buy the 30-day USA Rail Pass for the discounted price of $299 from now until June 22, 2021. You can find out more and check out different routes on Amtrak's website.
