Full Answer

Please note that several factors could bring your price lower than a standard fare. Amtrak offers discounts to holders of the International Student Identity Card, holders of the Student Advantage card, members of the AAA Auto Club, seniors, children aged 2 to 13, active members of the U.S. military and U.S. military veterans. Children under 2 years old can travel on Amtrak trains for free, but must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.

If you want to get the lowest possible price, try to book your tickets at least two weeks before your preferred date of travel. Booking well in advance may give you access to fares under the Amtrak Saver fare category, which are often less than half the price of tickets booked on the day of travel. Keep in mind, however, that tickets booked at Saver prices are not eligible for any of the aforementioned fare discounts.
