Skip the hassles of airports and ride the rails this year! Hop from town to town, across the country, or plan long weekend getaways.

Amtrak is currently selling 10 rail segments (coach only) that you can use within 30 days for $449 — and to your choice of over 500 destinations. This deal represents a $50 savings per segment!

The pass is valid for 120 days after purchase but is valid for 30 days after you use the first pass segment.

A travel segment occurs any time you board and disembark a train. If your trip involves making one connection, you will use two segments of your USA Rail Pass. This color-coded map (thanks, will help you determine how far you can go per segment. Each named train is it’s own color so when you switch colors you’ll use a segment.

This USA Rail Pass must be purchased on or before January 25.
