Amtrak Launches Group Travel Discounts Across the U.S.

by Jessica Montevago

Amrtak launced today a new offer in which discounts increase as the number of travelers in a group increases.

While the first traveler pays full price, the second traveler will receive a 15% discount, the third traveler will receive a 60% discount, and the fourth traveler will get a whopping 70% off a ticket, which would equate to a full 35% off for the group.

The Share Fares promotion is valid for travel beginning Saturday, April 27th, for up to four customers traveling together on the same itinerary. Travel advisors can access the discount with promo code V291. 

It's available for travel on the Amtrak Northeast Regional from Washington, D.C., to Boston, and on the national network on some of the most popular trains, including the California Zephyr, Capitol Limited, City of New Orleans, Cardinal, Empire Builder, Southwest Chief, Texas Eagle, Coast Starlight, Lake Shore Limited, Palmetto, Silver Star, Silver Meteor, and Crescent. Discount is not valid on the Acela Express and Auto Train.
