Ride free with your child!

For a limited time, book select adult fares for a trip on Amtrak and receive one free companion fare for your child (ages 2–12) for travel through December 17.

This sale is offered on nearly all Amtrak routes, so whether you’re looking for a quick trip on Acela, a scenic getaway on the Coast Starlight, a frontier adventure aboard the Southwest Chief, or if you’d prefer to bring your own car on the Auto Train (between Florida and Washington, D.C.), this offer includes route options and destinations to fit just about any travel need.

Skip the rental car, the cost of gas and tolls, and pack what you need for your journey (each passenger may bring two personal items and two carry-on items).

To book this offer, select Child fare from the traveler drop-down menu in the fare finder. An advance purchase notice of 3 days applies. Blackout dates: November 24, 25, 28-30.

Purchase by October 25 at Amtrak.

Amtrak has implemented a range of enhanced safety measures — including mask requirements, limited bookings, efficient air filtration, and more — to help you travel more comfortably. Additionally, Amtrak is waiving all change fees for reservations made by December 31 and all cancellation fees through October 31.

This deal can change or expire at any time! See Clark’s travel planning and booking guide for the best tips on stress-free travel, and check out for travel insurance.

(Editor’s note: The travel industry is currently under great stress, and the money you pay now may be lost if companies go out of business. See more here.)
