The holiday season is upon us. That means holiday parties and family reunions, wintery outings and family dinners, shopping, singing, cooking and lots of eating. With so much to do and so little time, it's not hard to see why so many people choose to relax aboard Amtrak — 31.2 million people last year alone. On Amtrak, you can enjoy the freedom and adventure of a road trip without all the hassles of driving.
Whether you're going to visit friends and family or taking your last vacation of the year, Amtrak can get you where you need to go. We proudly serve over 500 destinations across 46 states, the District of Columbia and three Canadian provinces. With convenient station locations and a 15% student discount (offered with a Student Advantage membership), we're also the perfect choice for anyone heading home for the holidays. And during a time of year that's all about giving back, you can feel good about choosing to travel with a company that does just that — returning nearly three dollars to communities for every federal dollar invested.
Are you ready for your own gift giving? Why not surprise someone with an Amtrak Travel Gift Certificate? Available in denominations from $50 to $1,000, Amtrak Travel Gift Certificates are instantly redeemable for Amtrak travel, and they make a perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for person on your list. To purchase gift certificates and other items, visit the Amtrak Store.
We appreciate your support in 2013 and look forward to welcoming you onboard Amtrak in 2014.
