Why Us

We know that there are many places that you can make your Alaska train and motorcoach reservations… and we appreciate the chance to earn your business. Here are ten reasons why we think AlaskaTrain.com is above the rest.

  1. Widest Selection – AlaskaTrain.com is the only site that offers real time online bookings for the Alaska Railroad, Private Dome Cars, and the Park Connection Motorcoach… all in one place.
  2. Flexible Policies – Book with confidence, knowing that you can change or cancel your reservation up until 45 days prior to travel without a fee or penalty, with a sliding scale after that. Many other companies charge a change or cancellation fee once booked. Speaking of fees... AlaskaTrain.com does not charge booking or ticketing fees nor allow markups of any kind. Booking well in advance? Great idea… just pay a 30% deposit now, and we can automatically charge your remaining balance 45 days prior to travel.
  3. Quick & Easy Online Reservations – Three simple steps… just tell us your plans, pick your class of service, and complete your booking details. A booking summary will be sent to you by email.
  4. Top Rated – We enjoy an A+ rating with BBB of Alaska and have been a member since 2002. We have also earned many other top ratings and awards, including our 5 star rating with Trip Advisor and our certificate of excellence.
  5. Alaska Owned & Operated – Our company was started in Anchorage, Alaska in 1995 by a small group of partners who have over a century of combined tourism expertise.  We continue to operate out of our original office with a staff of knowledgeable lifelong Alaskans ready to assist you.
  6. Low Price Guarantee – Nobody sells Alaska rail and motorcoach services for less. We guarantee it.
  7. Satisfaction Guarantee – Your happiness is our priority... read about our no hassle refund policy here.  
  8. Park Connection Motorcoach – We also own and operate the Park Connection Motorcoach, a great complement to train travel in Alaska. We service most rail belt destinations, and offer twice-daily trips between Anchorage and both Denali Park and Seward. Better yet, we offer same-day service from Seward or Whittier and Talkeetna or Denali Park, while an overnight is required to do this by rail.
  9. Testimonial & Reviews – It is hard to believe… but we have received over 1000 positive testimonials and reviews from past happy clients by email, mail and online reviews like Trip Advisor, Google and Yelp.
  10. Booking Options. By now you know AlaskaTrain.com is the place if you are just booking online rail and motorcoach segments, but we have many other booking options as well. If you have questions, give us a call or email us. If you are also booking hotels, tours, vacation packages or Alaska cruises… we can help with those as well.
