Travel agents can now book Via Rail Canada packages through Amtrak Vacations thanks to a new partnership between Via Rail Canada and Yankee Leisure Group, Amtrak Vacations’ parent company. Via Rail Canada is Canada’s national rail service.

The partnership allows travel sellers to connect rail travel to and/or from any of the 500 Amtrak stations across the United States to Via Rail packages, and to earn commission on both the Via Rail and Amtrak Vacations portions of the trip through Amtrak Vacations.

Using inventory from both sides of the border, the two entities have created itineraries such as a Cross Canada vacation package that will visit Toronto and Niagara Falls before departing on The Canadian train for a three-night journey to the Canadian Rockies and the cities of Jasper and Banff. Travelers will end their trip in Vancouver and can then travel to any of the cities that Amtrak services in the United States.

There is also a new "Capitol to Capitol" program that begins in Toronto, heads to Niagara Falls, then on to the Canadian capital of Ottawa. From there, travelers will go to Montreal, then New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.

The Via Rail trips that Amtrak Vacations is now offering operate most days throughout the year. Customers can also choose their level of accommodation, both on the trains as well as for their hotel accommodations.
