Double Points, All Routes, Spring 2018 With Amtrak

If you have been wanting to travel around the United States by train — instead of dealing with airport security checkpoints before flights or driving long distances — now is a good time to start planning your trip.

Double Points, All Routes, Spring 2018 With Amtrak

Register for the Double Days promotion by Amtrak Guest Rewards starting on Monday, March 19, 2018 and earn double points on qualifying travel on Amtrak trains in the United States through Saturday, May 19, 2017 at 11:59:59 in the evening Central Standard Time.

New for 2018 is that you can earn up to six times the points with special offers from twelve different partners during the Double Days promotion — including:

  • Enterprise
  • Teleflora
  • Hertz
  • Samsonite
  • LaQuinta Inns & Suites
  • Budget
  • nrg
  • Choice Privileges
  • Vinesse Wines
  • TravelStore
  • Rail Passengers Association

Select Terms and Conditions

Registration is required; and you must be a member of Amtrak Guest Rewards to participate in this promotion. There is a limit of four qualifying one-way trips per day. Registration is retroactive to the start of the promotion.

You must include your Amtrak Guest Rewards membership account number when booking reservations for travel to qualify. Amtrak Guest Rewards points will not be awarded for cancelled or refunded reservations or tickets.

Other terms and conditions — including those of the Amtrak Guest Rewards frequent traveler loyalty program — apply.


This promotion has been offered on a regular basis during the spring and autumn over the past few years — 2014 was one example — but in the past, the limit used to be two qualifying one-way trips per day instead of four.

Richard Anderson — who was once the chief executive officer of Delta Air Lines — became the sole chief executive officer of Amtrak starting on Monday, January 1, 2018; and this is the first major promotion under his leadership at Amtrak.
