<![CDATA[Student Discount Changes from 15 Percent to 10 Percent]]> Effective April 2, 2014

Changes will be made to the Student Advantage (SA) and International Student Identity Card (ISIC) discount membership programs. The rail fare discount for SA and ISIC cardholders will change from 15 percent to 10 percent. This change matches the membership discount for American Automobile Association (AAA) and National Association of Railroad Passengers (NARP), which is already 10 percent.

The requirement to book at least three days before travel remains in effect. Reservations made April 1, 2014, or earlier will be priced at the 15 percent discount level. However, if the passenger makes changes to such reservations on April 2 or after, the reservation will then be priced at the 10 percent discount level. The student discount for Amtrak Express Shipments will also change from 15 percent to 10 percent.

Effective July 7, 2014, the SA and ISIC discounts may only be booked online at Amtrak.com and through mobile apps. At that time, the SA and ISIC discounts will no longer be available to book by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL or at an Amtrak ticket office.

Thank you for traveling with Amtrak. We appreciate your patronage. For more information on passenger discounts, visit Amtrak.com or call 1-800-USA-RAIL (1-800-872-7245).
