VIA Rail Is Having A Huge 40% Off Sale On Train Trips Anywhere In Canada

Though the warm spring weather is mostly a comforting relief from the ravages of winter, the bite of wanderlust also begins to itch as summer air once against blows across Canada. Thankfully, VIA Rail is giving Canadians the rare opportunity to satisfy that desire to explore.

The company has slashed the prices of select tickets on its nationwide network. For a limited time, you can purchase train tickets for up to 40% off! Base, Extra, and Unlimited Canrail pass fares have been reduced by hundreds of dollars.

The "pass is for anyone who has a passion for travel," the VIA Rail website states. The Canrail ticket is a "convenient and flexible pass that allows you to choose between 7, 10 or unlimited one-way trips to a destination of your choice."

With the System Canrail Pass, you can travel "across Canada for 60 consecutive days." "Put quite simply," this "Canrailpass gives you the flexibility to travel anytime, at a price you'll love. So you can afford to be a little impulsive," VIA Rail encourages.

For example, you can travel the whole of the VIA Rail Network with 7 one-way base fare tickets for only $575.40 — reduced from $822. 10 one-way tickets are now $640.80 instead of $1,068.
