Amtrak

For those visiting family, friends or looking for an escape, Amtrak customers can travel in the comfort of a private room at a discounted price this summer. Now, when one person purchases a Roomette, one companion can join them for free. A truly unique experience when traveling by train, Roomette accommodations are offered on many routes across the country.

Located in the sleeping car, a Roomette is the perfect option for customers seeking privacy and space on a short trip and added comfort and amenities when traveling overnight. Available on Amtrak.com or by using the Amtrak app, customers can book between July 7-17, 2020 for travel from July 13, 2020 through September 30, 2020.

Roomettes feature two comfortable seats by day that convert to upper and lower berths by night. Each room includes a big picture window, fresh towels and linens and access to a private restroom and shower in your car.

A dedicated sleeping car attendant provides turndown service, assists with meals, helps with luggage and shares great stories of life on the rails. All customers in private rooms receive complimentary lounge access at major stations, priority boarding and complimentary meals onboard.

Two passengers can travel together one-way for as low as:
