Here are a few details about this sale, taken from the Amtrak website:
- Free companion fare with the purchase of one full-price adult fare
- Available on most Amtrak routes for both coach and Acela business class tickets
- Prime travel period during spring and summer

This could make for a really fun spring break trip! I decided to look into some sample one-way fares, when traveling out of Seattle. (This is to illustrate the savings only; there are many additional ideas.) Here are some prices I was able to find. They are per person, assuming you’re getting a free companion pass under the sale.
Seattle to Portland: $35 each
Seattle to San Francisco: $70.50 each
Seattle to Spokane: $32 each
Seattle to Vancouver, BC: $22 each
I’ve never taken the train like this before, but I’m thinking it would be a lot of fun for a couple’s getaway or a girls’ weekend!
