Amtrak Vacations launched a new booking engine for travel advisors, creating a more convenient and easier way to book rail travel for their clients.

Advisors can now book independent, customized train vacations inclusive of preferred dates and times, departure and arrival cities, Amtrak train routes, hotels, tours and activities, transfers, and rail – all in real time.

The easy-to-use booking system allows travel advisors to choose from more than 500 Amtrak stations and directly book travel to top destinations across the U.S., including top national parks and major cities.

Advisors will also now be able to instantly check availability and pricing of sleeping accommodations onboard the trains and reserve their clients’ selection for scenic, overnight trips.

“Advisors already know Amtrak Vacations is a one-stop shop for independent rail vacations, and now with the ability to go online and customize an itinerary based on their client’s needs, it’s even easier,” said Jim Marini, vice president of sales, Amtrak Vacations.

Amtrak Vacations Rail Specialists will still be available via phone for both reservations and questions.

To learn more about Amtrak Vacations’ online booking engine, register for their free online webinar taking place on Mar. 13.
