Partners: Affiliates

Thank you for your interest in joining the Canada Rail Vacations Partner Program.

Who is our affiliate program designed for?

Our affiliate program is available to individuals who are in a similar line of business which may result in having an overlapping customer base. As we provide tours across all of Canada and its major cities using train services like Rocky Mountaineer and VIA Rail, we understand that our connections to each individual looking to apply may be very different from one person to the next. For this reason, we like to treat each affiliate application as we would any one of our clients contacting us to book a trip; we’re happy to customize your experience to find the perfect fit for you!


We recognize that travel within Canada is a very competitive market so we are happy to pay competitive rates when your referrals travel with us. More details can be found below.

How are referrals tracked?

How we track your referrals will be decided based on the methods that you choose to promote us. With contact forms, it’s simple as once we have the customer’s email address, they will be tied to you throughout their trip-planning journey. When using special URL links, general click tracking/conversion tracking will not be accessible to you directly as our sales are completed offline. We are, however, happy to provide you with occasional updates if necessary. When bookings are received on our end, they will be tracked by IP Address and traced back to you.

When are commissions paid out?

Commission payments are sent out at the end of each month after the referral has completed their vacation. *Vacations completed in the last 10 days of the month are liked to be paid out at the end of the following month. Your referrals will be communicated to you on a monthly basis when they come in, outlining the approximate amount and time that you will be paid out.

We will request your payment information following the first referral that we receive from you.
