Holders of a Canrailpass must obtain a ticket for every journey by presenting their Canrailpass to an authorized VIA sales agent.

You must be prepared to show identification or sign your ticket on request.

It is not valid on trains and buses that are listed in the VIA timetable but operated by other companies. The Canrailpass is valid for 30 days. It entitles you to 12 days' travel in Comfort class over this 30-day period. Extension: up to 3 days' extra travel can be purchased during the 30-day validity period. The refund terms that apply are the same as those for the regular Canrailpass. Journeys for which you buy tickets with your Canrailpass must end before midnight on the last day of validity of your pass.

As a Canrailpass holder, you are entitled to a seat in Comfort class (basic service). For a surcharge, you can upgrade to first-class accommodation on other trains (Sleeper, VIA 1 class and so on). As a Canrailpass holder, you are eligible for any discounts available in first class, provided that applicable conditions are met.

Important Notes

Via Rail services are all non-smoking

As space is always restricted on the train, we would recommend that you take a small bag on board with the essentials that you need and check your remaining luggage through to your final destination.

The prices that we present are the super save fares, which must be booked 7 days before travel. There are additional discounts for seniors (60+), Students with an ISIC card and young people aged 12-17. Advance purchase is necessary.

Children 2-11 are eligible for 50% discount in comfort class and travel is FREE for children under 2 provided they are accompanied by an adult and do not take up a seat. A second infant travelling with just one adult pays 50% of the comfort class fare.

It is important to note that as the trains often travel through rugged and inaccessible terrain there may be occasional delays or freight trains may cause delay. Re-routing may be necessary at times by road. Via Rail does not pay compensation in this instance.
