How to make a reservation
We offer three easy ways to book your perfect train vacation.
What options are available to customize my rail vacation?
Create the perfect train vacation designed exclusively for you, by you! It’s easy with our customization options. Decide where you want to go, which routes to take, how long to stay, and what you want to see and do. Use our convenient online booking tool for standard getaways or call our friendly rail vacation specialists for all other types of trips! Here’s how it works...
Regardless of where you want to go, you have the option of starting your journey from any of the over 500+ Amtrak train stations in 46 states across the country. Even the station closest to your hometown!
If your journey involves overnight travel on the train, you may wish to upgrade to a First Class Roomette or Bedroom in an Amtrak Sleeping Car for the optimal onboard experience. Simply indicate which option when booking.
Choose your preferred length of stay in any of the hundreds of destinations we offer, even for multi-destination trips, for personalization and freedom within any itinerary. It’s easy to add extra nights, activities, and more.
In your chosen destinations, you’ll have the opportunity to book a variety of options and add-ons like a rental car, sightseeing tours, special attractions, or dining experiences at local, popular restaurants.
You may wish to combine two or more itineraries to maximize the sights you’ll see, the onboard adventures you’ll have, and the memories you’ll make. Or even take any of our vacations in reverse. The options are endless!
