Here is a map of how they are defining the zones.

US 1 in green, US 2 in amber and US 3 in red.

Travelling within 1 zone is 7,500, within 2 is 10,000 and within 3 is 12,500.

Spectacular deal for folks in Wyoming who want to vacation in FL!

Also, any zone to zone 3 prices at 12.5k (consistent with chart). So zone 2->3 = 12.5k, not 10k

Even better deal for Montana to Florida, both within the same zone. Wyoming is in US3.
