VIA Rail relaunches Travel Agent Support; win a $1,000 travel credit

TORONTO — VIA Rail has relaunched its Travel Agent Support e-learning training course on Travelweek’s Learning Centre. Agents who complete the course will be entered to win a $1,000 VIA Rail voucher for travel within Canada.

“The travel trade is an important distribution channel for us and we appreciate every opportunity we have to educate agents on all of the wonderful options and features we have to offer,” says Tracey Allen-Nurmi, senior manager, domestic & international sales, VIA Rail Canada Inc.

The course has six modules and takes about 45 minutes to complete, exploring the VIA network and the different routes and different classes available to passengers as well as onboard services and sleeping accommodation options. It also provides travel agents with the required information to make bookings and find support from VIA.

“This program allows us to build on our continued efforts to educate Canada’s travel agency community on their nation’s passenger rail service,” said Allen-Nurmi. “VIA Rail offers efficient, environmentally sustainable and cost-effective transportation coast to coast through-out the year, while providing the opportunity to experience some of the most beautiful scenery this country has to offer.”
