Amtrak has introduced new lower priced business class fares on it’s Northeast Regional services. These revised fares from Amtrak are great value for money for Amtrak Business Class passengers in order to increase the number of travelers using Amtrak services from Boston or New York to Washington D C. The lower fares are combined with great extras from Amtrak, including 10% off for AAA members who book more than 3 days in advance. You will travel in comfort whether you decide to relax on your journey or to catch up on some work – and for those who need to stay connected on the phone, it beats flying. There are 19 departures from New York and 9 departures from Boston everyday plus the same number of returns from Washington D C.
There are regular services each working day so you can quickly reach Washington D C from Boston and New York, and return the same day. To take advantage of the lower business class fares simply book 14 days prior to the date of travel. Currently the fares range from $27 to $127 depending on where you are going from and to. When you consider the extra services, the reliability of Amtrak, and the avoiding the stress of driving in urban areas those fares are even better value for your dollars. Compared with flying using Amtrak has less restrictions like putting laptops and cell phones in airplane mode, and it provides downtown to downtown service.
The fares are excellent value; for instance, Boston to Providence is only $27 return in Business Class. Washington D C to Boston return booked in advance only costs $127 (whereas a flight in First Class would cost over $500), and traditional Amtrak fares would be over $200. The majority of Amtrak Business Class fares are in the price range of $60 to $100 and only have limited availability at those rates. To avoid missing out on bargain train fares book tickets with Amtrak as soon as you know when and where you have to travel to. Plan ahead and grab the best fares before anyone else does.
