Why I Dig this Deal:

You can skip the rental car on your next trip to Florida and ride Brightline. It's about time Florida!
Clara Bosonetto | July 1, 2023

Brightline Orlando tickets are now available for purchase ahead of the high-speed rail service’s summer launch between Orlando and South Florida.

Tickets for the new Orlando service are available for travel starting September 1 and through early 2024 (through March 9).

The new Orlando service will connect travelers to South Florida, which includes Miami, Aventura, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, and West Palm Beach.

Brightline will offer one-way $79 Smart fares (an elevated economy class), and $39 for children. Groups booking four or more passengers will automatically save 25% on Smart fares.

One-way Premium fares begin at $149 and include a first-class experience, access to the Premium lounge at Brightline stations, priority boarding, checked luggage, and complimentary snacks and beverages throughout the journey.

With racks and ample room throughout the rail coaches, compact travel items can ride with you. Larger bags may be checked through to your final station. Premium fares include a complimentary first checked bag, and Smart fares are $25 per checked bag. You will be prompted to add this feature closer to the date of your travel.

The new Brightline Orlando station, which spreads out to 37,350 square feet, is located inside the new 80,000 square foot Terminal C Train Station at Orlando International Airport. Inside the station is the Mary Mary My Tap self-serve bar using facial recognition.

You can book additional transportation, such as Uber and rental cars when purchasing tickets. Premium ticket holders receive complimentary Uber rides anywhere within a five-mile radius in South Florida.

If you’ve plans to visit South Florida sooner, check out the deals and sales on Brightline. There’s also a way to get to the world’s top cruise ports in style. Book a Premium ticket, and you’ll get a complimentary Brightline+ ride, letting you start your vacation at your door. Get picked up from your hotel, take the train, and take Brightline+ upon arrival to get to your cruise – all in one ticket. This Premium ticket also includes access to exclusive station lounges, priority boarding, extra space, as well as complimentary drinks and snacks along the way.
