Deal Of The Week

August 20, 2000

At $193.50 per day, it's not cheap, but the Fall Savings rate for a two-day Canadian Rockies train trip is 18% lower than peak summer rates--and gives you fall colors too. The total package from Rocky Mountaineer Railtours is $387 per person, double occupancy, and includes an all-daylight rail journey between Vancouver and either Banff or Jasper, an overnight stay in a Kamloops hotel and daily breakfast and lunch; dinner is extra. Air fare to Canada is not included. The price is good in October and for selected September dates. By comparison, the trip costs $475 per person in the peak summer season.
