Amtrak Waives Change Fees
Many airlines here in the United States and around the world are waiving change and cancellation fees due to coronavirus. Now Amtrak is also taking action based on guidance from public health experts. In order to maintain a safe environment and address customer concerns and potential business impact, they are waiving change fees on reservations made through April 30, 2020.
Amtrak is waiving change fees on all existing or new reservations made before April 30, 2020. The policy will be changed as necessary. The waiver applies for tickets purchased by April 30, 2020. Here’s how to Change a Reservation:
- Simply log in to your account or go to Modify Trip on Amtrak.com, or find your reservation from your account on the home screen in the Amtrak app.
- A fare difference may apply to your new itinerary if it is more expensive than the original fare purchased.
- If you want to cancel your reservation, call 800-USA-RAIL.
Due to reduced service demand, Amtrak is also making temporary adjustments to the schedule, such as removing train cars or cancelling trains when there is a convenient alternative with a similar schedule that will have minimal impact to customers, including:
- Starting Tuesday, March 10, Acela Nonstop service (Trains 2401, 2402, 2403) is suspended until Tuesday, May 26.

One thought on “Amtrak Waives Change Fees on Existing and New Reservations Though 4/30”
well, Amtrak never had a “change fee” in the first place, thus making me suspicious it is a sneaky new way to create yet another fee
