A Month of US Travel for Just $ 299: Amtrak Sells Popular Passes Again
After more than a year of stress and boredom caused by the coronavirus, many Americans want to travel again. Business Insider.
Anticipating a boom in summer travel, Amtrak is attracting travelers with the relaunch of its USA Rail Pass. The ticket, which Amtrak launched last week, allows people to spend a month traveling around the country on Amtrak trains for a fixed fee.
Until June 22, the season ticket costs $ 299, which is 40% lower than its regular price of $ 499. This does not mean that travel will not be limited - $ 299 covers 10 train segments for 30 days.
According to Amtrak, a segment of a trip ends when a passenger exits the train, so a single-hop trip will use two segments, but one long trip will only be one segment. Amtrak's longest direct routes - from Chicago to San Antonio, for example - stretch over 1000 miles (over 1600 km).
The USA Rail Pass is only suitable for regular carriage seats and does not allow passengers to book premium seats such as sleeper or first class seats. However, at $ 30 per segment, the pass offers huge discounts, given that a single segment can cost hundreds of dollars.
For example, a single round trip ticket on the 1377 miles (2216 km) Crescent Line from New York to New Orleans can cost you nearly $ 500. The USA Rail Pass will pay off on that trip alone.

Customers have 120 days to book travel with the USA Rail Pass after purchasing it, so a discounted pass purchased before June 22 will be valid until the end of October. They have 30 days from the date of their first trip to use 10 segments.
