Veterans Advantage issues its members a unique Travel Code that can be used for discounts on Amtrak’s website at amtrak.com, by calling Amtrak’s Veterans Advantage toll-free line at 1-877-USA-RAIL, or at Amtrak ticket counters nationwide.

Veterans Advantage members are also eligible for a 750 point frequent traveler bonus*, good on a free trip on some of Amtrak's most scenic routes, when they join Amtrak Guest Rewards.

Here is how it works for Veterans Advantage:

1. Amtrak honors your service with 15% everyday savings!
As a veteran or someone who is currently serving in the military, you and your family members are eligible to receive 15% discounts on Amtrak travel with the VetRewards Card. This discount is available every day, for 15% OFF the best available rail fare on Amtrak, for same-day travel with no advance purchase requirement. Our benefit also allows you to upgrade for accommodation services. For instance, you are eligible for 15% OFF your passenger rail fare portion, even when you upgrade to first class, business, sleeper or Auto Train, and pay the full accommodation charge (accommodation charges are not discounted).

The Veterans Advantage 15% Amtrak discount is available for same-day travel every day of the year with NO BLACKOUT PERIODS. Book online at amtrak.com, or call Amtrak at 1-877-872-7245.

To book online at amtrak.com, use your 10-digit Travel Code from Your Account and select "Veterans Advantage" as your fare type – no promo code is required – and your 15% Amtrak discount will be applied to your reservation.

Show your VetRewards Card at the Amtrak ticket counter to pick up your tickets, or pick up through QuikTrak.

2. Get 15% off WEEKEND ONLY travel on Acela Express
The VetRewards Card can also get you 15% OFF the rail fare on Acela Express high-speed rail travel in the Northeast corridor during weekends (Sat. & Sun. only.) Please note: Acela Express has business and first class seating, however, only business class accommodations are eligible for this discount.

3. Amtrak Guest Rewards Earned With Discount Travel

Veterans Advantage members are also eligible for a 750 point frequent traveler bonus* from Amtrak's frequent traveler program: Amtrak Guest Rewards. This is good on a free trip on some of Amtrak's most scenic routes, when they create a new Amtrak Guest Rewards account with a special code that comes with membership.

Veterans Advantage discounted travel is also eligible to earn Amtrak Guest Rewards Points.

3. Auto Train

The Veteran Advantage 15% discount on the Auto Train is a longtime favorite for VetRewards cardholders wishing to travel with their vehicle. Like the Everyday Passenger discount with accommodation services, the discount on Auto Train applies to the passenger rail fare only, and your car, motorcycle or other accommodations are not discounted.


Not valid for travel on certain Amtrak Thruway connecting services; the Canadian portion of services operated jointly between Amtrak and VIA Rail Canada; may not be combinable with other Amtrak discount offers, in which case Amtrak will offer the lowest fare available – check the terms & conditions on these other promotional fares, which include additional limitations.

* Amtrak Guest Rewards points offer expires December 31, 2017. Travel on Amtrak within 90 days of enrollment to earn 750 bonus points. Additional terms and conditions apply.

How to get the Veterans Advantage Discount with an Amtrak-Greyhound connection:

Veterans Advantage members should book only their Amtrak leg on amtrak.com or call 1-877-USA-RAIL (1-877-872-7245). Members should NOT book Greyhound travel with Amtrak. Reserve Greyhound travel directly on greyhound.com, by calling 1-800-231-2222 or with an active VetRewards Card in Greyhound Terminals. CLICK HERE for more on Greyhound and Veterans Advantage.
