Fares are subject to availability; and fares, routes and schedules are subject to change without notice.

Once travel has begun, no changes to the itinerary are permitted.

Other restrictions, terms and conditions may apply; but this offer is:

  • Valid for discounted one-way coach rail fares based on the regular — full — adult rail fare
  • Valid for coach seats only, as no accommodation upgrades are permitted

Track Friday instead of Black Friday — get it?

Anyway, be sure you thoroughly do your research before booking your reservation even though you can potentially save money as a result of this sale, as the required deposit cannot be refunded or canceled once your reservation is booked. Shop airfares and the rates of other modes of transportation prior to booking your reservations — unless your heart is set on seeing the United States by rail.
