Travel anywhere throughout Canada this summer, but hurry to book!
If you’ve read almost anything that I’ve written in the last 11 years, you should know that I don’t fly. So when I came across this last-minute VIA Rail sale, I checked my calendar to see if I could get away this summer.
Sadly, I can’t squeeze in another trip this summer. But if you can make a quick decision, go for it. Here’s an idea if you’ve been thinking of an Alaska cruise but dread a 4+hour flight to Vancouver. Go VIA rail across Canada. Seriously. You can.
Book by May 8 and travel by August 27, 2014 on any VIA Rail routes in Canada
Rates are 50% off or more in all classes, except Business class, and must tickets be purchased by May 8 for travel from May 21 to August 27, 2014.
If an Alaska trip is out of the question, you can still explore Canada’s diverse cities, outdoor territories including the extraordinary Rocky Mountains and coastal areas aboard VIA Rail.
These seat sale discount rates apply to Economy, Touring, Sleeper class and Sleeper Plus classes. For example, travel from Montréal to Québec City for about $41 USD, from Ottawa to Toronto for $67 USD, or from Montréal to Halifax starting at $109 USD.
Splurge for a private sleeping cabin.
Travel on one of the most spectacular train journeys in the world while relaxing in the Sleeper Plus class. You’ll have a cozy cabin plus all of your meals are included. Fares for a cross-Canada in a sleeper begin at about $682 USD per person.
