5 Tips for Saving on Train Travel

Check out promotional deals. If 62 or older, you’ll get a 15% discount on Amtrak and for passengers 60 or older get a 10% discount on Canada’s VIA. Be sure to click on links for Deals or Specials.

Check out last minute offers. Amtrak offers Smartfares under its Deals tab. Most are short term and last minute types of deals but it could work for you. They change every week on Tuesday. For Canada’s VIA rail, take a look at its Express Deals.

Look at an Amtrak vacation package. These are available all year around and include more than just your train fair. And you might be able to snag an early booking discount.

Joint Amtrak’s Guest Rewards Program to earn points and save on future travel.

Check into Amtrak’s multi-ride discounts and monthly passes if you ride the same route regularly or simply take the train often.
