Children Travel for $20 this Winter on VIA Rail

VIA Rail usually runs a weekly Discount Tuesday promotion whereby certain tickets go on sale for bookings made within a 24-hour period every Tuesday. This offer is taking a pause until January 10, 2023, while a children promotion will run until then.

Children Travel for $20

For children between the ages of 2 and 11 years old, any ticket booked before January 5, 2023 for travel between January 10, 2023 to March 21, 2023, will only be $20 for a one-way in Economy class across the entire VIA Rail network. Children under the age of 2 are already free.

Terms and Conditions

Below are a list of terms and conditions to keep in mind for the booking:

  • Children aged 2-11 must be accompanied by at least 1 adult at least 18 years of age.
  • Up to 5 children may travel for $20 per adult travelling on the same dates, trains, and between the same stations.
  • There are no blackout dates during the promotional period between January 10, 2023 and March 21, 2023.
