Passenger Discount for International Student Identity Card (ISIC Card) Holders

International Student Identification Card Holders Save 10%

Passengers holding a valid International Student Identity Card (ISIC Card) are eligible to receive a 10% discount (online only) on the lowest available rail fare on most Amtrak trains.

To receive these discounts, the cardholder must present both an International Student ID card and a valid photo ID onboard Amtrak trains.

How to Get an International Student Identity Card (ISIC Card)

To qualify for your ISIC card, you must be age 13 or older and currently enrolled as a degree seeking student at an accredited institution. Continuing education, language school, and non-degree seeking students are not eligible.

How to Enter Your International Student Identity Card Number

To take advantage of this online-only discount:

  • Use the Fare Finder at the beginning of your search and select 'ISIC' for each passenger as appropriate. Then, enter your ISIC membership number on the 'Passenger Information' page of the booking process.
  • Or, in your user profile, select 'ISIC' in the 'Travel Profile' section, and enter your ISIC number. ISIC will be pre-selected as your preferred passenger discount type, and your ISIC number will appear, already filled-in, in the appropriate text field.

When entering your International Student ID card number, please omit any spaces and dashes.
