Amtrak’s summer sale is here: The rail operator is offering up to 30% off coach and Acela business-class fares through August, with one-way coach fares starting at $14.

You must book by May 16 for travel from June 1 through Aug. 30.

Deal basics

Carrier: Amtrak
Routes: Across the Amtrak network
How to book: Directly through Amtrak
Travel dates: June 1-Aug. 30
Book by: May 16

Sample routes

The following one-way routes were priced as listed at the time of publication. We cannot guarantee the below will be available when you book:

  • Boston to Providence, starting at $14 for coach and $46 for business class
  • Philadelphia to Baltimore, starting at $21 for coach and $53 for business class
  • Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia, starting at $25 for coach and $60 for business class
  • Washington, D.C., to New York, starting at $39 for coach and $84 for business class
  • Los Angeles to Sacramento, starting at $60 for coach
  • Chicago to New York, starting at $85 for coach
  • Dallas to Los Angeles, starting at $100 for coach

Although this is advertised as a sale on one-way fares, you can stack two one-way fares for a round-trip journey. Based on a test search for this story, one-way sale fares were lower than marketed. For example, you can book an Acela from Washington, D.C., to New York June 10-13 for $126 round-trip; each one-way fare is on sale at $63.
