Amtrak Discounts – 50% Off Tickets

If you’re wanting a train adventure to slow the pace of your travel down or just for a new adventure & way to see the countryside, Amtrak is having a special offer going on now which makes for some great Amtrak discounts. Right now, Amtrak is offering a buy one get one companion fare special – but you have to book by February 16. That means you get two tickets for the price of one (or half off)!

Not available on all trains, including the Auto Train & restrictions do apply. Travel must happen between March 31st to August 31st.

What is it like to ride the train:

If you have ever wondered about train travel overnight, check out Sia’s experience with her family taking the Amtrak train to northwest Montana. It sounds like such a unique way to travel & experience the countryside.

Sample Route Prices for this Sale:

A sample route for the trip Sias family took above (Seattle To Whitefish MT), with this Amtrak discounts is $68/ea way in Coach seating (so just $34 per person)! Or Portland, OR to Seattle, Wa for $18/ea way. Those are fantastic prices for travel if you are looking for a budget friendly alternative. Another route from Seattle that I have always enjoyed is Seattle to Vancouver. It is beautiful if you can travel when you might hit some snow.

This sale is as good (maybe better) as the popular BOGO free train tickets and an excellent way to try out train travel to see if it is a good fit for you. Some folks love it, and others don’t so this is the perfect time to find out which camp you fall into – with these discounted rates.

  1. I can’t seem to book tickets for that sale price. We are a family of four and all I can seem to get is $99 for 4 tickets each way (total $198). What am I doing wrong? Help!

  2. Sarah, you may need to call Amtrak directly and speak to a rep in order to get the deal – that’s what I had to do when I booked using my BOGO tickets I got from them a couple of months ago.

    Jen, in response to your question asking if this was a good way to travel with your family – I have made this trip many, many times with my friends for a girls weekend in Portland (catch at either Seattle or Tukwila – I’m actually going this weekend!) so I can’t vouch with the family but with my friends it has been so much fun! Split the cost of the hotel room(s), free rail transportation in DT Portland and no taxes! We sit in the dining car and play cards the entire trip down and back. Amtrak always seems to have some sort of deal like this in the Spring every year. Definitely worth it!

  3. Someday, we will learn that this is a gimmick to raise ridership numbers up to some magic threshold that will quality Amtrak for even more obscene Government subsidies than it gets now.
