Two For the Price of One Roomette Sale With Amtrak

Imagine watching the sun set behind the scenic mountains or marveling at how blue is the ocean along the coast — or perhaps just biding your time away watching the cities, forests and deserts pass on by to the rhythm of the clickety-clack of the rails. If you have wanted to see the United States in all of its glory from the luxury and comfort of a private roomette with two individual beds while traveling by train, now is your opportunity to do so while simultaneously saving money: your companion gets to travel for free with you between Monday, January 7, 2019 and Thursday, May 23, 2019…

Select Terms and Conditions

This offer is valid for one free companion fare traveling in a roomette with the purchase of one regular — or full — adult or senior fare. The free companion and full fare passenger must travel together in the same roomette and reserve in the same reservation. This offer is only valid for travel in a roomette and is not valid for travel on the Auto Train. The companion is subject to the same restrictions and conditions as the full fare passenger.

In addition to the discount restrictions, this offer is also subject to any restrictions, blackouts and refund rules that apply to the type of fare purchased. Roomettes must be cancelled at least 15 days prior to the scheduled departure for a refund and a 25 percent cancellation fee applies. This offer cannot be combined with any other discount offer. Roomettes are limited and are not available on all trains. Fares are subject to availability. Not valid for onboard ticket purchase. Fares, routes and schedules are subject to change without notice. Once travel has begun, no changes to the itinerary are permitted.

Other restrictions, terms and conditions may apply.


Traveling by train in comfort and style throughout much of the United States can be difficult to resist — especially when you are not required to go through a security checkpoint similar to that at an airport or driving in traffic through construction zones or sitting on a bus for days at a time.

The fares are not inexpensive on their own; but considering that a companion may travel with you at no extra charge, the cost of premium travel by train becomes quite attractive — but you only have until Tuesday, December 11, 2018 to book your reservations if you are interested in taking advantage of this offer.
