Valentine's Day is around the corner, which means planning a romantic getaway is in order. Luckily, Via Rail's Discount Tuesday savings could make that process easy and cheap this year. The Canadian rail service just unveiled its train trip deals for February 14 and they're looking pretty good.
By purchasing a ticket before midnight on February 4 for trips between February 8 and 14, you can save on journeys to cities across Canada. Some of the least expensive tickets are for travel within Ontario.
For example, you can get a one-way ticket from Toronto to Niagara Falls (still considered the honeymoon capital of the world) for just $18. If you want a bit of history with your romance, travelling from Toronto to Ottawa is just $45.
Train trips outside of Ontario are also discounted. Heading from Ottawa to Montreal or Quebec City is only $34 and $45, respectively.
Rides to the east coast are also cheaper, with one-way tickets from Montreal to Halifax going for just $117, reduced from $130.
This being Valentine's Day, though, you might be thinking of planning a long trip. One that takes you right out of your familiar space and transports you across the country.
Luckily, discounted tickets from Toronto to Vancouver are available, for $400 (down from $444). A shorter ride from Toronto to Edmonton is just $293.

There are so many great events across Canada to enjoy once you secure your cheap transportation. For example, Montreal is having a giant chocolate festival on February 8 and 9.
Ottawa may be home to Parliament and museums, but it also has plenty of restaurants that would be perfect for a romantic meal with your partner.
Even the Vancouver Art Gallery is offering a chance for romance with extended hours and a party on February 14.
All discounted prices are for the Economy fare. Tickets can be exchanged (for a 50% fee) but are non-refundable.
