Travelers who plan to use Amtrak for their next group trip can take advantage of new train ticket discounts.
As of late April, Amtrak is offering a new discount program called “Share Fares” which allows groups up to four to book tickets at a discounted rate. The first customer will pay the full price, while the second customer will receive a discount of 15 percent, the third customer of 60 percent and the fourth customer of 70 percent.
Discounts are applicable to Amtrak’s Northeast Regional route (between Boston and Washington, D.C.) and other routes across the nation, such as the California Zephyr, the City of New Orleans and the Southwest Chief.
Travelers can enter the promo code V291 at checkout to apply savings to their ticket prices, only valid for one-way ticket purchases. To receive the discount for both directions of travel, guests should purchase two separate one-way tickets. The rate does not apply to Acela Express or Auto Train passengers.

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
