Most of the old Amtrak discounts that I posted have expired. So here’s a bit of an update. When booking your train, you can enter a discount or promotion code. The following promotion codes are currently valid:
- V822: 20% off unreserved trains in the Northeast Corridor through 12/16/04.
V745: will get you 20% off Northeast Corridor unreserved trains. This is also good on Acela Express and Metroliner trains all day Saturday and on Sunday except between 1pm and 6pm. Valid through 6/22/04 except for April 8th – 12th and May 28th – June 1st.
V823 and V132: offer 15% off qualifying Amtrak fares to New York City between June 1 and September 12, 2004. This discount is valid for all unreserved trains and all day Saturday and Sunday on Metroliners and all day Saturday and before 1 p.m. and after 6 p.m. on Sundays for Acela Express trains.
H258: Up to two kids (15 years old or younger) ride free for each adult full fare purchased. Valid for Saturday or Sunday travel through 3/28/04 on Capitol Corridor trains.
Update 9/12/04: Samir has an excellent and comprehensive updated post at Flyertalk.com with over fifteen Amtrak deals and discounts, including full descriptions of each. I highly recommend checking it out.
