WASHINGTON – Students ages 17-25 can now enjoy 15 percent off the lowest available value fares all year long with the launch of the Amtrak student discount, effectively immediately. To take advantage of the discount, students must book travel three days in advance, exclusively on Amtrak.com, and present valid photo identification onboard the train.
With spring and summer right around the corner, the discount offers students affordable fares, convenient service and the chance to travel to more than 500 destinations across Amtrak’s national network.
Wherever students choose to go – whether it’s visiting a college campus, following a favorite team to the next away game, planning a weekend getaway, or visiting friends and family – Amtrak allows students to skip the hassles of the road and enjoy the journey. Parents will enjoy that Amtrak offers a safe and affordable way for students to travel back and forth to school.
Students can also take advantage of comfortable, spacious seating, outlets at every seat, and free AmtrakConnect Wi-Fi on many routes to browse, post and stay connected. Plus, Amtrak’s generous baggage policy allows students to bring two bags and two carry-ons for free.
Fares are subject to availability. Others restrictions may apply.
