Let’s start with the National Railroad Passenger Corporation, otherwise known as Amtrak. It boasts 21,000 route miles in 46 states, the District of Columbia and three Canadian provinces, and delivers more than 300 trains daily to hundreds of destinations — traveling at up to 150 miles per hour. Amtrak offers 10% off most rail fares on most Amtrak trains to those 65 and older. You only have to be 60 or older to get 10% off fares on cross-border voyages operated by Amtrak and VIA Rail Canada. If you take six train rides per year at an average price of $150 each, you can save $90 annually. See extra info on Comcast senior discount.
Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV), begun 47 years ago, has become America’s largest domestic airline, serving some 120 million customers with more than 4,000 flights per weekday in peak seasons to 100 U.S. destinations and beyond. It says that customers who are 65 or older may qualify for special senior fares, and that they should check with a Southwest customer service rep or with a travel agent to inquire about availability and pricing. The senior fares may not be the cheapest fare offered for a given flight, but senior fares are refundable, while the cheapest fares for most folks, the “Wanna Get Away” fares, are not refundable. Refundability can be an appealing feature for seniors who may have to reschedule or cancel due to health issues or other problems.
