We offer three (3) ways to book a vacation package with Amtrak Vacations®: • Call Amtrak Vacations at 1-800-AMTRAK-2 (800268-7252) and speak with a Vacation Specialist. • Book online at www.amtrakvacations.com. Navigate to the vacation package page you wish to book, click on the pricing tab, select your travel dates and enter your contact details. • Visit or call your local travel agent. 2. Can I fly to the first city then pick up my rail vacation package and then fly home from a different city? Yes, absolutely! You can take the Amtrak train one way and then fly home from a different city. This is very popular with our Escorted Rail Vacations, Independent Rail Vacations and our Rail and Sail Vacation packages. 3. Can I add on additional sightseeing activities and/or additional hotel nights to one of your rail vacation packages? Yes, you can add additional sightseeing activities and/ or hotel nights to most existing rail vacation packages we offer. There are a couple ways to do this. • On the website: You will be able to view the Amtrak rooming upgrade options, hotel upgrade options and additional sightseeing options through the online booking process. Details of the upgrades and price increases are listed next to each item. Additional charges may apply. • When you speak with a Vacation Specialist: Request an explanation of the upgrade options to your vacation package as you wish. Additional charges may apply.

Hotel upgrades are available upon request. 8. Can you accommodate special dietary needs? We can provide special menu selections on most trains with 72-hour advance notice. We require 24-hour advance notice for Acela Express First Class service. You do not need to provide advance notice for vegetarian meals. 9. How long before the train departs should I be at the station? The recommended arrival time for each station varies, but plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled departure. If you need help with baggage, tickets or any other services, or if you are departing from a large or busy station, we recommend you arrive at the station even earlier. To confirm your train will be arriving on time, please call 1-800-USA-RAIL. 10. How much luggage can I bring? In general, each passenger is allowed two (2) carry-on bags, each not to exceed 50 lbs. (23 kg), 28 x 22 x 14 inches (700 x 550 x 350 millimeters), free of charge. Additionally, each passenger can check up to 4 bags - 2 free of charge and 2 for $20 per bag, each not to exceed 50 lbs.

4. When I upgrade to sleeping accommodations, are my meals included? Yes! On most long distance trains all meals are included in the dining car during meal times when upgrading to a sleeping accommodation.

At Amtrak Vacations we pride ourselves on the fact that our hotels are city center locations so they are close to the train station. We include transfers on all of our Escorted Rail Journeys. On all other vacation types, transfers are not included.

5. Is travel protection available if I have to cancel? Yes, travel protection is something that we offer and strongly suggest for all travelers. Our Travel Protection Option allows you to cancel your Amtrak Vacations agreements for any reason up to noon Eastern Time on the last business day prior to the first services offered by Amtrak Vacations and receive a full cash refund minus the cost of the travel protection.
