Rocky Mountaineer delays Canadian season start to July 5

Rocky Mountaineer delays Canadian season, extends inaugural season of new U.S. route

VANCOUVER — In light of ongoing travel restrictions, Rocky Mountaineer is delaying the start of its Canadian travel season until June 1, 2021.

In addition, the luxury train company is extending the inaugural season of its new route in the United States, ‘Rockies to the Red Rocks,’ by four weeks. The preview season for the route, which travels between Moab, Utah and Denver, Colorado, will start on Aug. 15, 2021 and, with the extension, will run until Nov. 19, 2021. With some departure dates nearing capacity, Rocky Mountaineer is adding rail cars to increase guest capacity on all dates and adding 16 new departure dates to the preview season.

For guests impacted by the delayed start to travel in Canada, the company is offering several benefits, including: providing a future travel credit equivalent to 110% of monies paid; holding its 2021 and 2022 rail pricing at 2022 levels; and providing a price guarantee for its vacation packages to ensure travellers can book a similar tour at the same price, once the present force majeure event has passed, even if third-party hotels or tour operators raise their prices. 



Guests can choose to transfer their booking to the new route in the U.S., ‘Rockies to the Red Rocks,’ with an added incentive to return to travel on the Canadian routes in the future. 

Recognizing that some guests may be hesitant to select a new travel date immediately, Rocky Mountaineer has added greater flexibility to its booking, allowing guests to change their departure dates or people on the booking, up to 30 days ahead of travel, without charge or penalty.
