Buy a Roomette and Bring a Companion for Free for Travel on the Amtrak Auto Train

Skip the traffic and Get Carried Away

WASHINGTON – For those looking for a unique adventure or visiting family and friends, customers can travel in the comfort of a private room with the latest flash sale for the Amtrak Auto Train. When one person purchases a Roomette, one companion can join them for free. The sale is available for purchase from Thursday, Oct. 1, to Sunday, Oct. 11. The offer is valid for travel from Oct. 4 – Dec. 17, 2020.

The Auto Train offers daily, non-stop service from Lorton, Va. (near Washington, D.C.), and Sanford, Fla. (near Orlando). Customers can skip I-95 and travel with their vehicles, including cars, vans, SUVs, motorcycles and even small boats or jet-skis. This is the only such service in the U.S. and eliminates nearly 900 miles of driving between the Northeast and all points in Florida.

For customers seeking both privacy and savings, Roomettes feature two comfortable seats by day and upper and lower berths by night. Inside the room, customers will find newly upgraded bedding, pillows, towels and linens. Customers will also have access to a private restroom and shower down the hall and a dedicated Sleeping Car attendant during the trip. All Roomette customers receive complimentary traditional dining service with wine and a continental breakfast prior to arrival.
