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.
