News and Updates from Amtrak Including Sale and Discount Information

Travel Expert and Radio Show Host Stephanie Abrams is joined by Jason Abrams (no relation) representing Amtrak to discuss travel options, deals and discounts, the new Rochester, NY station and more. Jason Abrams has been with Amtrak for only a short while, about six months. Prior to that he worked at various agencies doing creative work. He considers that he's always been a fan of trains and enjoys the benefits of train travel because it allows you to enjoy the sightseeing and relative comfort.

Stephanie mentions that its really easy to get from NYC to the Berkshires of Massachusetts, where she broadcasts from, with Amtrak. Starting at NYC's Penn Station hop aboard an Amtrak to Albany, NY. From there she suggests renting a car from the Enterprise Car Rental "where they will have a car waiting for you at the station. Then it's a nice one hour, usually traffic-free, drive to the heart of the Berkshires.


She says that part of the allure of train travel for her are the very interesting travelers on trains and that there are multiple options for long haul US travel with Amtrak and also that she'd love to take the Lakeshore Limited which goes from Boston to Chicago.

Jason says the best way to save on Amtrak fares is to book early, at least fourteen days in advance, and that travelers should try and use Amtrak's Saver Fares. He says Amtrak has moved to a more streamlined and efficient business model with tactical discounts and flash sales every two or three weeks versus longer term discounted everyday pricing. Ongoing discounts will be listed on the Amtrak website and the flash sales are usually available for three to four days for advanced (usually fourteen to sixteen) day purchase of travel periods lasting about six weeks after that time window. Jason Abrams says the flash sale discount is usually twenty five to thirty percent and cites a recent sale that was offered at the end of March, 2018 where discounts were up to thirty three percent of standard rates.

Stephanie mentions that Amtrak has always been a good way to travel for children. Jason says that children's rates have a fifty percent discounts for children between age two and twelve and travel is free for children under two years of age.

Stephanie says that taking an Amtrak train from New York City to Montreal train is a great getaway where you barely need to go outside since Montreal has a lot of underground shopping and access noting the city has been well designed for its cold weather climate with lots of subterranean pathways and venues.

Jason lets us know that there is a link at the bottom of Amtrak's homepage to "subscribe and save" to sign up for email alerts on flash sales and suggests joining the Amtrak Guest Reward Member program at Amtrak.com where travelers can earn points for travel purchases and earn five hundred bonus points for joining with a minimum redemption amount of eight hundred points for use.

Amtrak has service to Rochester and Stephanie says that explorers should add it to their list of travel destinations as an often underrated but interesting city. There is a new train station in Rochester, NY which opened in October of 2017 after nearly fifteen years of planning, including efforts by the recently late congresswoman Louise Slaughter (August 14, 1929 – March 16, 2018) who helped secure a fifteen million dollar economic recovery grant to build the station. Amtrak recently announced it will be naming the new station as a dedication to Slaughter and her career of public service.
