Train rides can offer a scenic and relaxing way to travel from one destination to the next, and for those looking to embark on their own train journeys through the U.S., Amtrak is offering the chance to travel with a loved one at a fraction of the price.

Amtrak is currently offering a buy-one-get-one-free deal on its sleeping accommodations including roomettes, bedrooms, and family bedrooms, offering two travelers the chance to embark on scenic routes throughout the U.S. between Aug. 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020 for the price of one. 

Passengers can choose from roomettes and bedroom options across a range of trains including the California Zephyr, Capitol Limited, Cardinal, City of New Orleans, Coast Starlight, Crescent, Empire Builder, Lake Shore Limited, Silver Star, Silver Meteor, Southwest Chief, Sunset Limited and the Texas Eagle.

Both roomettes and bedrooms come with reclining seats that convert to a bed, an upper bunk that folds down, fresh bed linens and pillows, temperature controls, adjustable lighting, bed-side storage nooks, and a fold-down table.

Both also include meals with the price of a ticket, large windows to take in mesmerizing views, and a dedicated attendant to assist with booking meal reservations, making and taking down beds, and luggage.

Bedrooms come with a bit more space and features that include an in-room toilet, a shower, and a sofa that can also convert into a bed. 

There are also dedicated family bedrooms, which sleep four, and span the width of the train car to include two sets of bed bunk-style beds, a sofa, and two reclining seats.
