November travel just got cheaper for pairs who take the train during the middle of the week.
Amtrak’s Midweek BOGO sale (buy one, get one free) launched Thursday and allows customers who buy an adult ticket on any Downeaster train to bring a friend for free. The sale ends Nov. 3 and travel must take place Nov. 5-7, Nov. 12-14, or Nov. 19-21. The full-fare passenger and friend must travel together on the same itinerary and have tickets issued together.
The Amtrak Downeaster is a 146-mile regional passenger train service that runs from Boston’s North Station to Brunswick, Maine. The train services 12 stations and operates five daily round-trips between Boston and Portland, Maine, with three round-trips extended to Freeport and Brunswick, Maine. Fares range from $6 to $30 one way.
