AMTRAK – Child Age Policy

March 7, 2014 by Brenda Fairfax No Comment

Effective March 24, 2014 the child age for Amtrak will change from 2-15 years of age to 2-12 years of age.  Existing reservations made prior to March 24, 2014 will be honored at the current age.  This change will apply to all child passenger types, including those used for various membership discounts (such as AAA) and for other fares where there is a child half fare (disabled, mobility impaired, military, pass rider, etc.).

The policy update does not affect Amtrak’s unaccompanied minor policy; it remains the same.  No child 12 or under may travel unless with a passenger 18 years or older.  Passengers age 13-15 traveling alone must travel as full-fare unaccompanied minors.
