Rocky Mountaineer is delaying the start of its Canadian travel season until July 5.

"We are extremely disappointed to be forced to delay the start of our season, but we remain very optimistic about restarting travel in July. Our team is eagerly working to prepare our trains for operations and we all look forward to getting back to what we do best, which is hosting guests for an incredible experience on board our trains,” said Peter Armstrong, the railroad's founder and interim chief executive officer, in a news release.
Because of the delayed start to travel in Canada, Rocky Mountaineer is offering benefits, including a future travel credit equivalent to 110% of monies paid; maintaining 2021 and 2022 rail pricing at 2020 levels; and a price guarantee for vacation packages to ensure  travelers can book a similar tour at the same price, even if third-party hotels or tour operators raise their prices.  
Customers can also choose to transfer their booking to the new route in the U.S. Rockies to the Red Rocks, with an added incentive to return to travel on the Canadian routes in the future.
