~vh24's review of Amtrak customer service
GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Amtrak customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
~vh24: I called to find out how to get a refund for a trip that Amtrak canceled. The woman was confused at first, but eventually figured out what I wanted and told me to go into the station (or mail in the ticket). I spent no more than a minute on hold (probably less than that), so it was worth it.
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting Amtrak. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a Amtrak problem?
~vh24: I'd give them a four out of five for ease of finding your way to help.
GetHuman: What about quality of communication. How would you rate that on a 1 to 5 scale?
~vh24: I'd give them a five out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about Amtrak's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
~vh24: For that I would say two out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other Amtrak customers?
~vh24: Call them early in the day or late. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for Amtrak to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from ~vh24 taken from his Amtrak customer service problem that occurred on November 4th, 2017.
