There is no better way to see this great country then by train. Roomy reclining seats, free Wi-Fi, plug outlets to charge your electronics, café car access, and a smooth ride, all make for a pleasant experience.
Not only is Amtrak relaxing, pleasant, and convenient, it is also more affordable for U.S. military personnel.
If you are an active duty member of the U.S. military, then you’re in luck to some big savings. To help honor and thank the troops for their service, Amtrak salutes the troops by offering a military discount on most of their train routes.
Here’s what you get with the Amtrak military discount:
Active-duty US military personnel, their spouses and their dependents are eligible to receive a 10% discount on the lowest available rail fare on most Amtrak trains, including for travel on the auto train. For more information about this Amtrak military discount, please be sure to check out their Official Promotion Site.
But also be aware of the “fine print.”
The Amtrak military discount is not valid on weekday Acela Express trains.
The discount does not apply to Business class, First class or sleeping accommodation. You can only book these classes with a regular, full price ticket.
The discount is not valid for travel on certain Amtrak thruway connecting services.
The discount is not valid on any Canada services
The discount can not be combined with any ongoing promotions, specials, or discounted rates.
So if you are looking to travel across the U.S. and have time to spare to enjoy the scenic sights of the U.S., be sure to check out Amtrak. Plus, don’t forget to use that awesome military discount.
