Amtrak: Leaked Memo Shows New Change & Cancellation Fees
According to an internal memo seen by Business Insider Amtrak is considering adding new change & cancellation fees as early as late January 2020. Changes/fees will be as follows:
- Saver fares will become completely nonrefundable and nonchangeable (currently these can receive a 75% voucher for cancellations)
- Value fares will be subject to a 25% cancellation fee or 15% change fee within 14 days of departure (currently these can be fully refunded up to 8 days before departure and there are no change fees)
Based on the wording of the Business Insider article it seems that Amtrak are considering these changes rather than them being certain to be implemented, but given how specific they are I suspect new fees are on the way in the short term.
