AAA Member Discount

Ongoing

American Automobile Association (AAA) members save 10%.

You don't need to drive to experience the best of Southern California! Use your AAA membership and save on train travel instead. Relax in comfortable seats with plenty of legroom while you avoid traffic on the way to San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and more. You’ll arrive feeling refreshed and ready to explore!

American Automobile Association (AAA) members and their immediate family (spouses and dependents) are eligible to receive a 10% discount on most adult rail fares for Amtrak travel. Up to two children ages 2 - 12 may accompany each adult member at half the AAA member rail fare.  

To use the AAA discount, you must book your tickets at least three days in advance of travel. Visit the AAA web site for information about becoming an AAA member.
