CheapAir® became the first and only online travel agency in the U.S. to offer both flights and Amtrak railway reservations on a single website.
Travelers may now book Amtrak fares through CheapAir.com and the voice-activated CheapAir iOS app, and even mix-and-match flight and railway fares to create the most convenient and cost-efficient travel itineraries available on the web.
While travelers used to have to search flights on one site, Amtrak seats on another, compare prices and then try to manually combine travel modes, they can now seamlessly add railway travel to even the most complicated itineraries. A trip from Chicago to New York to Boston to Washington D.C. can now include both flights and trains to provide the fastest and most affordable trip possible.
CheapAir has introduced railway fares between New York and Boston, New York and Washington D.C., and Boston and Washington D.C.—the three most popular Amtrak routes. As demand for railway travel increases, CheapAir will continue to add additional routes. Travelers can select between standard trains and Acela Express trains, which reach speeds up to 150 mph and significantly reduce travel times. Customers can also choose between Business Class and Economy Class seating.
"We're big proponents of air travel, but sometimes it's just better to roll than fly," said Jeff Klee, CEO of CheapAir.com. "When you want to save a few hundred dollars, take in the scenery, carve out some time to get work done on-the-move or even minimize the driving commute to your final destination, rail travel can make a lot of sense. This is one more way we're providing travelers with choices, convenience and significant savings."
Train travelers enjoy all the benefits of booking with CheapAir including access to a Personal Travel Advisor and Price Drop Payback™, which guarantees customers up to $100 in travel credits if their fare price drops after the date of purchase.
Customers may book Amtrak fares on CheapAir.com or on the CheapAir App, the world's first voice-activated travel search app and a Gold Winner in the Travel Weekly annual Magellan Awards.
