How Do You Find Auto Train Discounts?

Find Amtrak Auto Train discounts by visiting the Amtrak website or Railserve.com periodically to check for special offers. Deals that are exclusively available on Amtrak.com typically must be booked at least two weeks in advance.

Promotions on the Auto Train line are rare due to the route's popularity, but many of Amtrak's general promotions still apply. Members of Student Advantage, the American Automobile Association (AAA), military and the National Association of Railroad Passengers receive a 10-percent discount on any Amtrak purchase as of 2015. Veteran's Advantage members and passengers with disabilities receive a 15-percent discount. Children may also frequently ride for half of an adult fare on Amtrak trains.

Amtrak has also offered seasonal savings on the Auto Train route. The Winter Sale promotion enabled passengers booking a trip in January 2015 to save 20 percent on trips in February or March that year. AAA members received an additional 10 percent off in April 2015 on trips taking place in May or June that year. The most current deals are available on discount sites such as RailServe.com.
