Pack smart, travel smart.
You’re about to take the train and you have questions about baggage? You’ll find all the information you need right here.
Important notice: VIA Rail implemented its new checked baggage policy. These rules aim to make the travel experience on board the train even safer and more enjoyable for all.
Ours is one of the most cost-effective and easy methods of transporting baggage. For greater security, don’t forget to label each piece of baggage with your:
- 1. Full name
- 2. Complete home address
- 3. Telephone number
- 4. E-mail address
Please note that the baggage entitlement for your trip is indicated at the time of booking confirmation and in the e-confirmation document you receive by e-mail. It is also indicated on your e-boarding pass if you travel in the Québec City – Windsor corridor.
And as of October 2012, information on baggage entitlement for your trip is provided at the “Review” stage during the booking process. It is also provided at time of booking confirmation.
