You can take the Amtrak train one way and then fly home from a different city. This is very popular with our Independent Rail Vacations and our Rail and Sail Vacation packages. 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. 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. Is travel protection available if I have to cancel? Yes, if you purchase our Trip Protection, cancellations made before noon Eastern Time on the last business day prior to the first services offered by Amtrak Vacations are eligible for refunds.

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. 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. 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 four bags — two free of charge and two for $20 per bag, each not to exceed 50 lbs.

Carefully read the Cancellation Waiver brochure that is included with your travel documents. The TPO does not reimburse cancellation or “no shows” on the day of departure. A “no show” is defined as a failure to notify Amtrak Vacations of a cancellation prior to noon Eastern Time on the last business day prior to departure. Note: The TPO does not reimburse any single supplement charges which arise from an individual’s traveling companion electing to cancel for any reason prior to departure. In this case, the single supplement will be deducted from the refund of the person who cancels. Division of this charge between the two passengers involved is solely their responsibility. If insufficient funds are deducted from the canceling client, the traveling client will be charged the remaining portion of the single supplement. Payment of TPO (if chosen) must be received by Amtrak Vacations with your Deposit. The TPO is nontransferable and valid for each applicant only. When a cancellation is made, the claim will be handled in this manner: Cancellations made before noon Eastern Time on the last business day prior to the first services offered by Amtrak Vacations are eligible for refunds. Applicable cancellation penalties in accordance to the schedule in your cancellation waiver will be refunded in the form of a future travel voucher that can be used on any Amtrak Vacations trip booked within one year of the date of cancellation.
