Amtrak’s Rare Flash Sales Offer $19 Fares

Amtrak is repeating its flash sale for the Northeast Regional area, ranging from Boston to Virginia Beach and including the Northeast Corridor line. Sample one-way fares range from $19 for Washington-Richmond to $39 New York to Boston or Washington and $55 Boston to Philadelphia.

Book by Friday, July 13, travel August 1 through November 9. Amtrak’s website automatically posts the sale fares upon searching, so there’s no code to worry about.

Amtrak didn’t announce this deal until it actually started, assuring that many news sources won’t have sufficient time to post or print it. But if you act fast, it could be worth it.
