Rocky Mountaineer Train Cost2024


Due to the small size of Canadian Rockies towns such as Banff, Lake Louise, and Jasper and their popularity as tourist destinations, many Rocky Mountaineer train dates during the peak travel season of May to September sell out 6+ months in advance. With the limited supply of space and the high demand, the cost of these train journeys make it a bucket-list item, not an everyday mode of transportation.

Rocky Mountaineer have a worldwide non-discount clause meaning that their train tickets cannot legally be discounted by resellers such as travel agents and tour operators. Once prices for the season are released for the 2 and 3-day rail tickets, they do not change and are not subject to sales or discounts. The Rocky Mountaineer prices for 2 and 3-day train rides in the Canadian Rockies typically increase anywhere from 7-10% year over year so it is always important to book well in advance in order to guarantee yourself the best rates, as well as availability on your preferred dates.

*The price of a seat on the Rocky Mountaineer train does not vary by age. Tickets are the same price, no matter how young or old the person traveling may be.

The best way to get cheaper rates on the Rocky Mountaineer train is to book a multi-day tour package. The reason for this is that packaged holiday prices are subject to additional deals and discounts that rail-only tickets do not qualify for. Due to the timing of the trains, you will need to have accommodations on either end of the trip anyway so including your hotels in a package with the Rocky Mountaineer train in order to qualify for a deal will offer better value than booking your own accommodations separately.
