More Amtrak with Rail Online

Rail Online now gives travel agents the ability to search, book and ticket Amtrak journeys with all prices in NZ dollars.

Chief executive, James Dunne says that by offering live booking capability in New Zealand dollars, Rail Online has made it more cost-effective, efficient and convenient for the trade to book Amtrak journeys.

‘Currently travel agents booking Amtrak e-tickets must pay in US dollars, which means that bookings attract foreign transaction fees,’ says Dunne. ‘Agents, and their clients, can now avoid those fees altogether.

‘In addition, agents booking through Rail Online have the freedom and flexibility to self-manage all itinerary changes and refunds, saving time.’

Amtrak’s network connects more than 500 destinations in 46 US states and three Canadian provinces. The company’s fleet of more than 300 trains includes 20 Acela high-speed trainsets, which reach speeds of up to 240 km/h.
