How can I purchase Amtrak train tickets?
We now offer direct Amtrak bookings at Rome2rio. It’s easy!
Step 1: Visit our home page www.rome2rio.com and simply enter your USA origin and destination, then click search.
Step 2: Using the interactive menu, select ‘Train’ as your method of transport.
Step 3: Select either ‘One way’ or ‘Return Trip’, and choose your preferred travel dates and times, and the number of passengers. Then select ‘Find tickets’.
Step 4: Find your preferred train by sorting the results by time/price. If you would like to travel in more comfort, for example first class/roomette/bedroom, simply click on the ‘modify’ button on your preferred train and choose from the dropdown menu. Click ‘Select’ on your chosen train to proceed.
Step 5: Choose a ticket delivery option: eTicket or collect from an Amtrak station (we recommend eTicket when this option is offered!).
Step 6: Enter the passenger details.
Step 7: Enter your billing address and payment information. We accept payment by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, and UATP.
Step 8: If you agree with the terms and conditions, click ‘Buy Ticket’.
Step 9: If your payment is processed successfully, you will immediately receive an on-screen 6-character Amtrak booking reference, and you will shortly receive an email from Amtrak with your purchase receipt and e-ticket PDF. Occasionally these emails might get placed in your Junk Mail or Spam folder by your mail system. Please check those folders for firstname.lastname@example.org just in case.
