How Do I Get Cheapest AMTRAK fares?

Jump to last reply

Family of 3 looking to take the train from NYC area to Orlando vicinity. Several dates, including ~Nov 22 and April 3 '02.

I need tips on how to get cheapest AMTRAK fares.

Any fare codes;

co-marketing agreements with partners;

Airline offers (do they accept airline tickets in lieu of rail pass); Can I buy a dirt cheap air ticket and have it be accepted by AMTRAK?

Web sites to 'buy' return trips [as all AMTRAK fares used to be one way, with a 'free' return]

Tricks like booking for Miami and getting off at Sanford (or wherever);

Open Jaw fare strategies

Any experiences and advice would be appreciated.

I am very confident I know how to shop for the lowest airfare; But I am very short of knowledge on obtaining the best rail fare.

HELP PLEASE!!!
