Hello all.

I've been a Via Préférence member for a good 2 years now, although I could only take the train once since then. I still have a solid 478 points, and with the 40% discount when you use points, I was thinking about going somewhere in Gaspésie (or if possible, in New Brunswik). Since an 8 hour trip on the Ocean/Chaleur would cost me 420 points, I could go somewhere using this train, and pay for the return. However, I don't know how to use points I gathered. Can someone tell me every details I need to know about how to use them?

Thanks in Advance, and VIA Rail FTW!

Trips on points have to booked on the telephone through the Preference Service Centre at 1-888-842-7733. The points will be deducted immediately and you will be able to pick up your ticket up to 30 minutes before the train's departure.
