As people start making travel plans again after a long hiatus, Amtrak wants to be top of mind. They’re doing this by offering a buy-one-get-one-free deal on private roomettes this summer. When you purchase a private roomette between April 6 and April 16, you’ll get to bring a friend along for no additional charge. The deal is valid for travel between June 1 and September 30 of this year. To qualify for the discount, just use code “C645” during checkout when you book.

A roomette is a private room that comes with two beds (seats that turn into berths when needed), a window, fresh towels, linens, and bathroom and shower access. The perks for roomette passengers extend to stations, too, where you’ll get complimentary meals and lounge access.

The deal is only available on limited rail routes, however. The 15 routes for which the discount can be applied include:

  • The Auto Train
  • California Zephyr
  • Capitol Limited
  • Cardinal, City of New Orleans
  • Coast Starlight, Crescent
  • Empire Builder
  • Lake Shore Limited
  • Northeast Regional
  • Silver Star
  • Silver Meteor
  • Southwest Chief
  • Sunset Limited
  • Texas Eagle

In accordance with social distancing rules, passengers are required to wear masks on trains. Amtrak also allows you to view the train’s capacity and occupancy level online. If you’re uncomfortable with how crowded the train will be you can change your ticket with no extra fee.
