If a traveler knows the exact destination and dates for the trip and is ready to purchase tickets, he can enter that information under the Tickets tab on the home page. The results show the available trains and the ticket prices for each direction of the round trip. If the traveler is not ready to buy a ticket, he can view train schedules by entering the starting and ending destinations plus the trip dates under the Schedule tab.

The website contains tips and information on planning a trip by train, including easy booking tips for long-distance travel and family vacations by rail. For families, Amtrak provides details about sleeping and seating accommodations and the on-board dining options.

Amtrak's website provides in-depth information concerning ticket prices. As of June 2015, the railroad has many special discounts, including 10 percent off for students and military personnel and their families and a 15 percent discount for seniors. All of these discounts come with restrictions and conditions, which the website clearly outlines.

Travelers can sign up on the website for Amtrak's Guest Rewards program. Amtrak users receive points for each dollar they spend on Amtrak travel and then can redeem those points for free Amtrak tickets.
