There are plenty of great flight deals this Valentine’s Day, from airlines like Emirates and JetBlue. But if your idea of a romantic getaway is avoiding the airport and taking in some of the most beautiful sights in the country through the window of a train, here’s a Valentine’s Day gift for you.

Amtrak is having a Valentine’s Day Buy One Get One Free Sale on its reserved coach seats from now until 11:59 p.m. ET on February 18, for nationwide travel from March 25 to July 29 with no blackout dates.

Scenic Winter Train Rides You’ll Want to Book Right Now

This means that two people traveling together in coach on Amtrak this spring and summer can get two one-way tickets for as low as:

  • Chicago to New Orleans: $135
  • Boston to New York: $83 ($125 for Acela)
  • San Francisco to Portland, Oregon: $92
  • Atlanta to Washington, D.C.: $129
  • Chicago to Kansas City: $69
  • Los Angeles to Portland, Oregon: $121
  • Boston to Portland, Maine: $29

This sale applies to coach seats on some of the most scenic train routes in the United States, including the Coast Starlight, Empire Builder, and California Zephyr. However, because it is restricted to reserved service, travel on commuter lines like the Pennsylvanian, Keystone Service, Capitol Corridor, Hiawatha Service, Pacific Surfliner, and San Joaquin can’t be booked through this deal.

To book tickets, visit Amtrak.com and the discount will be automatically applied to the standard fare.
