Thanksgiving can be one of the most expensive times of the year to travel, but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you don’t mind moving your holiday travel plans up a bit, you can take advantage of Amtrak’s new flash sale for travel between November 11 and 24, with 60 percent off all fares each way on 15 long-distance routes. If you play your cards right, you can score fares as low as $29 each way.
Some of our favorite fares include:
Washington, DC to Cleveland, Capitol Limited ($29)
Seattle to Sacramento, Coast Starlight ($39)
Chicago to New Orleans, City of New Orleans ($49)
New York City to Miami, Silver Service ($59)
The sale only lasts from November 5 to 7, however, so you’ll have to be quick on the trigger booking those cheap fares.
