Amtrak Discounts – BOGO FREE 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. From now thru February 17, 2020, Amtrak is offering Buy one Fare, get a Second one Free. When you reserve a Coach seat or a Sleeper on select routes. These BOGO rates are available for routes from travel between March 9 and August 30. (Not available on all trains, including the Auto Train & restrictions do apply).
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 $98/ea way in Coach seating (so just $49 per person)! Or Portland, OR to Los Angeles, CA for $123/ea way. So, with this BOGO offer you would get 2 seats for that price! 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.
These BOGO free train tickets are 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.
