Although you don't need to create a User Profile to make reservations on Amtrak.com, you'll find the reservation process to be a faster and easier experience, more tailored to your individual needs, if you take a few minutes to create a User Profile.
Some of the benefits associated with creating a User Profile are:
It's easy and should only take a few minutes. Just follow these steps:
The 'Register' link appears in the login area of the page, in the left navigation bar.
Your e-mail address will be your login ID when you log into Amtrak.com.
If you are an Amtrak Guest Rewards member, your Amtrak Guest Rewards number is not your Amtrak.com login ID.
Use at least 6 but no more than 20 characters (letters and/or numbers). Some special characters cannot be included in your password.
To successfully purchase tickets on Amtrak.com, your billing address must match the address where your credit card statement is mailed.
We can only mail tickets to addresses within the United States and Canada. We cannot mail tickets to:
Enter your favorite, or most frequently used departure and arrival stations, preferred passenger type, discount and Amtrak Guest Rewards numbers, and we'll save you time by retrieving them when you log in and book online.
If you would like us to send you information by e-mail about new products, services and special offers, please check the box.
Review your information for accuracy, then click the 'Save Profile' button in the lower right corner of the page.
To update your profile, log in and click 'My Profile' and change any of your settings.
