Stoping in La Plata, Missouri
While On An Eastbound Cross-Country Amtrak Trip
Using Amtrak Guest Rewards Without Using Up An Extra Zone
Route of the Amtrak Southwest Chief (click here for a larger image)
If you plan to do a eastbound cross-country Amtrak trip using Amtrak Guest Rewards which includes the Amtrak Southwest Chief
in your rail travel plans, you can stop at the Depot Inn & Suites in La Plata, Missouri, without using up an extra Zone when
redeeming your Amtrak Guest Rewards.
Book the first segment of your trip only as far as La Plata, Missouri (LAP).
That is an Amtrak Guest Rewards Two Zone trip from the western states (or One Zone from some states not as far west).
Next, not using Amtrak Guest Rewards, purchase a Coach Ticket from La Plata to Chicago.
That is only a 5 hour Coach Ride in the Amtrak Southwest Chief and usually isn't too expensive.
Then, book the remainder of your eastbound Amtrak trip using Amtrak Guest Rewards.
Heading east out of Chicago is only an Amtrak Guest Rewards One Zone trip to anywhere in the east.
In this manner, you can make a stop at the Depot Inn & Suites in La Plata, Missouri, during your eastbound cross-country
Amtrak trip without using up an additional Amtrak Guest Rewards Zone. You will use the same number of Amtrak Guest Rewards
points regardless of whether you stop in La Plata or not. The only additional cost is for a 5 hour Amtrak Coach Ticket from
La Plata to Chicago.
