Travel Agent Commissions

Effective November 1, 2013, Amtrak will pay base commission only to Amtrak National Account Partner Travel Agencies. The Amtrak National accounts include:

  • AAA Travel Agencies
  • Vacation.com

Reservations for any of our commissionable trains that are ticketed by a National Account Partner Travel Agency through an approved booking channel (i.e., GDS's Apollo, Sabre and Worldspan or the Amtrak RailAgent online booking tools) are commissionable. National Account Partner Travel Agencies will receive base commissions as previously negotiated on Long Distance Amtrak trains. If you are a member of an Amtrak National Account, please contact your National Account Headquarters for specific details and information on commissionable services.

In addition, all Amtrak appointed travel agencies (National and Non-National) can earn 8-10 percent commission on Amtrak Vacations (amtrakvacations.com) packages and group tickets. For information on group sales, please contact Amtrak Group Sales at 1-800-872-1477. For information on Amtrak Vacations packages please contact 1-866-326-8725.

Reservations made on Amtrak.com are not eligible for commission.

Commission Payments

National Account Partner Travel Agencies using Apollo, Sabre or Worldspan receive their commission payments via the ARC weekly IAR Sales Report process.

Amtrak RailAgent Sites

National Account Partner Travel Agencies using any of the RailAgent sites (Amadeus, International, Tour and Vacation.com) receive commission payments electronically through PayPal. Commission payments are processed approximately three months after the reservation was created.

Please be sure your Agency’s manager/owner has submitted the PayPal account information to Amtrak Travel Industry Programs support.
