Amtrak - New Refund Limitations

Amtrak - New Refund Limitations

On March 1, 2014, Amtrak will require passengers to cancel tickets at least 24 hours prior to departure to be eligible for refunds.  A refund fee will apply when canceling Value tickets while Saver tickets are not refundable.  If the reservation is not canceled within the time limit, the entire amount of the Value and Saver fare tickets will be forfeited; the ticket value will not be stored in an eVoucher and cannot be applied toward future travel.

This change applies to all reserved Coach class and Acela Express Business class reservations.

If you require more flexibility in your travel plans, book a fully refundable fare which may be refunded without fee at any time within a year from purchase.  These are known as "Flexible" fares on Amtrak.com.
