Attention anyone who’s made it their New Year’s resolution to travel more in 2023: If you’ve been waiting for a sign to plan a trip and hit the road, this is it. Here’s a handy list of travel sales going on this month to help kick-start your year of big adventures, whether you’re into scenic train rides, cheaper flights to Europe, luxury cruises or guided group tours.
Now through Jan. 20, 2023, you can save $200 on Amtrak’s USA Rail Pass, which, for $299, lets you book 10 segments over a period of 30 days and gives you the freedom to plan your own route, whether its an epic cross-country rail adventure or a few shorter trips closer to home. There are a few important things to note: For starters, the pass is only valid for 120 days once you buy it and you’ll have 30 days to complete your 10 segments once you start using it, so make sure you’ve got a plan. You’ll also need to ride in coach class the entire time (read: upgrades to business class or sleeper cars aren’t allowed), certain routes aren’t included and you’ll have to reserve Saver or Value tickets ahead of time, among others. But if you’re interested in giving slow travel a try and embarking on some of the most beautiful train rides in the country, go for it.
Make your next trip to Europe more affordable by booking your ticket now through Jan. 18, 2023, and traveling between Feb. 1 and May 31, 2023. Note that while this Icelandair sale only works if you’re departing from certain cities—Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis, New York, Orlando, Portland, Raleigh-Durham, Seattle and Washington,
