Tips for Successfully Booking Your Trip

Tips for Getting the Best Price
Reserve Early

To get the best available fares and to secure your preferred travel dates and accommodations, you should try to make your reservations as far in advance of travel as possible. The earlier you book, the more likely you are to get the lowest fare available for any given itinerary. You may book your travel up to 11 months in advance.

Be Flexible with Your Travel Dates

Amtrak trains and accommodations tend to sell out during holidays and peak travel periods. Fares will vary based on the date and time you travel. If you can be flexible, use the Fare Finder tool on this site to try different dates and/or times and compare fares.

Use Passenger Discounts

We offer several options for substantial discounts based upon a passenger's age (infants, children or seniors), and for membership in various organizations, including AAA, NARP, Veterans Advantage and Student Advantage etc.

Check out the Amtrak SmartFares

If you're looking for deeply discounted train fares, we offer them on select routes - Amtrak SmartFares can only be purchased online.
