Passenger Discount for Veterans Advantage® Members

Save 15% with a Veterans Advantage VetRewards® Card

Passengers holding a valid VetRewards Card are eligible to receive a 15% discount on most adult rail fares on most Amtrak trains to any of our destinations. VetRewards Card members who also enroll in Amtrak Guest Rewards will receive two points for every dollar spent on Amtrak travel, or up to 750 points per trip on Acela Express.

How to Get a VetRewards Card

You must enroll with Veterans Advantage (submit an online form for membership), and receive a 10-digit Travel Discount Code that can be used immediately to book your Amtrak travel. Currently, Veterans Advantage is offering a 30-day trial in the VetRewards Card program for Amtrak travelers. Please note that the membership is yours to use for 30 days. After the 30-day period you will be billed for your membership unless you contact Veterans Advantage to opt out of the membership program. One-year, three-year and five-year plans are available.

Act today, there are many more benefits available. You will also be mailed a nationally-recognized membership card and 60-page benefits directory — all as a special "Thank You" for your service.
