What if I lose my phone? Is my information safe?
We recommend using a security PIN or fingerprint to prevent access to personal information if your phone becomes lost. If someone gains access to your phone and you are logged into your Amtrak account, purchases could be made if your credit card information is saved to your profile, and they would also be able to see and potentially modify reservations.
Can I use this app without a network connection?
If you lose connection, you will not be able to complete transactions, but will still be able to see upcoming reservations, access your eTicket, and view other important information. In order to maintain the most accurate information and access all functionality, a cellular or WiFi network connection is required.
What if I lose my network connection during a transaction?
You won't be able to continue without a network connection. If you aren't sure if your transaction completed, check your email and home screen. If your purchase did complete before you lost the connection you will receive an email and the changes will appear on your home screen.

How do I use a discount such as Senior or Rail Passengers Association?
When making a reservation, you can designate a discount on the Travelers screen before you search for trains. A link to applicable program rules for Passenger Types and Discounts is also available on this screen.
I made a reservation that does not automatically display on the app when I’m logged-in on the home screen.
Try updating the home screen by swiping it down. You can also look up reservations on the app home screen by providing the reservation number and the last name, email address or phone number.
I made a reservation on Amtrak.com and changed it in the Amtrak app. Amtrak.com continues to show the old information.
If a reservation is changed while logged in on the app, the changes can only be seen on the app and not on Amtrak.com. Amtrak is aware of this situation and we are working on a solution. Be assured that the reservation was changed.
