This thread is intended to contain information useful to people travelling to Canada - please feel free to add anything relevant to it! Before we start though, here's some advice from the TT team:

  1. Do a TT search! At least five posters a week ask what to do in Toronto, whether to go visit Niagara Falls on their way around the world, and whether it's possible to work under the table/overstay a tourist visa. The road is well travelled. Find those threads, add a reply (which brings the…

A really basic question! -

I'll be travelling first to Montreal for two days, then a week in Ottawa, then a week in Vancouver. If I buy a sim card in Montreal and then use it for data/talk in Ottawa or Vancouver, surely I'll have to pay high rates because I'm roaming within Canada... right? I can't find an answer online.

Hi everyone I have been reading many other people’s posts where people have had the idea of taraveling Canada in an rv in winter but all have abandoned the idea.

I am currently planning to spend a week in the east then have a month to be able to travel from the east in an rv converted truck to the west where I will spend another week. Along the way I plan to ski and hike through a winter wonderland spending a lot of my time in national parks or in little villages and town meeting the locals.

We are renting a car and have found a good deal on the rental, but I still haven't found insurance. The cheapest that I can find online is $11 USD per day and that still seems very expensive - the car rental was the same cost.

My own country doesn't have any good deals so I'll have to get it from a Canadian or international broker. If I search carefully will I find it more cheaply? I'm happy with a high deductible.

It's hard to search because so many websites assume that you also want…

Hi all,
Route is becoming more and more final. Arranging the latest reservations and looking for great tours and things to do.
It looks like as shown below. I don't want to stay to long in one place if there is not enough to do. Neither do I want to move to quick as our boys (8 and 9 yrs) also have their holiday and won't like to move around to much.

If I miss things I shouldn't or we stay to long where we won't be able to do to much, please let me know.
We like to hike short hikes, but won't…

We are contemplating this trip in the future. We would like to do it either when the Spring flowers are blooming or when Fall colors are brilliant. What month do each of those occur up there. Thank you
