Three cheers for Spring! The trees are budding, the weather is improving, and best of all…the college kids will be returning home soon. When it comes to riding the rails, Spring can’t be a better time to travel. Amtrak and AAA cannot have a better partnership when it comes to the travel industry. At this time of year, it is a partnership that works wonders. Amtrak and AAA are offering a discount which passengers cannot be more thrilled about. AAA members are entitled to a ten percent (10%) discount on most Amtrak fares. For a limited time, AAA members can save an additional ten percent (10%) on already reduced AAA fare on many routes across the country. Kids can also travel for half the discounted fare. How’s that for a deal? The details of this discount offer are fairly simple. An extra ten percent (10%) off is just a phone call or a mouse click away.
How good of a deal are Amtrak and AAA offering? It is a deal not to be walked away from. It is a discount on top of a discount. On top of all that, children’s fares are reduced as well. Children of ages 2 – 12 travel for half of the discounted fare. Spring is a wonderful time for rail travel. With an offer like this, passengers have even more reason to plan their next vacation. It’s all part of how Amtrak and AAA can get members and their families to many destinations across the country for less.
Every family’s vacation begins the moment they climb aboard and settle in. With on board accommodations, they will have plenty of room to spread out and relax and take in the scenery. Depending on where they are headed, passengers can enjoy a meal in the Dining Car or relax and enjoy the panoramic views in the Sightseer Lounge. Whether they are visiting family for the weekend, heading into the big city, or taking an iconic train ride across country, passengers arrive at their destination rested and ready to go.
Before making reservations, Amtrak passengers must be made aware of the terms and conditions. The discount is valid for ten percent (10%) off the best available adult AAA discounted rail fare. The discount is valid for sale between April 1 and May 15, 2015. The discounted fare is good for travel between April 22 and June 12, 2015. The blackout dates are May 22nd and May 25th.

Spring has finally arrived, and so has the time to ride the rails to great destinations. For AAA members, the opportunity to save an extra ten percent (10%) can’t be more imminent. Whether it is that trip to Chicago, Florida, or New Orleans, Amtrak has the perfect traveling experience waiting on the horizon. AAA members maybe getting a ten percent (10%) discount already, but to save an extra ten percent (10%) on top of of that is an even sweeter deal. The wind from the Windy City can’t be blowing any stronger. The smell of Florida oranges can’t be any closer, and the smell of Cajun cuisine can’t be any more enticing. The chance for avid Amtrak riders and AAA members to experience these and other great destinations is now. Waiting for the summertime to begin is simply passing up on a worthy deal. It is imperative to hop aboard an Amtrak train and enjoy Spring while it lasts. To every Amtrak rider, AAA stands for “Always Above Amazing”.
