Traveling is stressful and even worse if it turns out that you can’t make your trip.
It is common for travelers to look at a business’s cancellation and refund policy.
What is Amtrak’s full cancellation and ticket refund policy?
Amtrak offers more than 30 routes, which take you to 500 different destinations across 46 States.
It also has a flexible policy for refunds and cancellations that makes travelers feel more at ease. The flexibility, though, is dependent upon the ticket type you buy.
Amtrak’s cancellation and refund policy includes:
Amtrak Saver Fares allow for a refund of the full amount paid if you cancel or change your reservation within 24 hours.
The ticket is non-refundable after 24 hours. However, travelers may still get a non-refundable 75% eVoucher.
A fee of 25% will be charged by the business.
Save on Value Fares
Amtrak’s Value Fares allow you to receive a complete refund in the form that was paid for the ticket if your trip is cancelled 15 or more days prior to departure.
A 25% fee is charged for cancellations made less than fourteen days before the departure date.
Amtrak Flexible Fares offer a 100% refund if you cancel your reservation before the departure date.
Discounted Business Rates
Amtrak Business Fares offer a 100% refund if you cancel before your departure.
All First Class Tickets
