AAA Discount for Adult Passengers

American Automobile Association (AAA) members and their immediate family (spouses and dependents) are eligible to receive a 10% discount on most adult rail fares for Amtrak travel. Up to two children ages 2 - 12 may accompany each adult member at half the AAA member rail fare.

Three-Day Advance Purchase

To use the AAA discount, tickets must be purchased at least three days in advance of travel.

If a customer makes any change to the itinerary, the customer must re-qualify for any membership discount used. This means that to be eligible to receive an applicable membership discount, any change to the itinerary must be made at least three days in advance of travel.
