Listen Now: Amtrak’s 2-for-1 Deal: You Won’t Believe These Incredible Perks
Looking for a different kind of vacation? Hit the tracks.
Amtrak is offering a two-for-one deal on its private rooms. The lodging is ideal for two people , with a panoramic window, two seats that convert to a bed and a bunk bed that folds down from the ceiling.
But that’s not all. Your cross country trip also includes fresh linen and towel service, bottled water, access to the amtrak lounges with complimentary snacks and drinks. Throw in hot showers, wi-fi and work areas and you have everything you need for a fraction of a plane ticket.
And if you’re someone who enjoys the travel perks of housekeeping and room service you won’t be missing those either. Passengers will have a dedicated attendant who will book your meal reservations, make and take down the bed, help with luggage and share stories of life on the rails.
It’s a great way to see parts of the country you otherwise wouldn’t. Views include the Pacific Northwest Coast, Mount Hood, and the Mississippi. All you need is a travel partner who doesn’t mind close quarters.
