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 topic to…

Hi All,
I've read a bit about getting from the Montreal airport to accommodation at night time.

Not a lot of it has reassured me.

Recommendations at that hour have said not to get the bus, however I have also read some stories about cab journeys and attacks that have happened. Any suggestions for how to do this safely late at night?

Thanks!

Hi all,
Days away from visiting Canada and will be arriving in Montreal from London. The flight get in at 9pm.

Any hints about weather or not I'll be able to pick up (at that hour at the airport) a Sim card (iphone 5 - Australian) for my phone that I can use in Canada and the US? Can you get a sim card for both data and calls?

Any information generally on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hey.

I'm looking to do some traveling in Canada this January, possibly starting Montreal / Toronto and taking long-distance buses maybe up to Hudson Bay (Churchill?) and / or further West (eg Yellowknife).

I can't find too many details on the web so I was wondering if someone could help me out on

(a) Feasibility of this
(b) Very rough pricing
(c) Time (I assume 24 hours or more is typical)

I'm hoping all roads are open in the winter, and the Greyhounds run with reasonable frequency. I'd…

Hey,

So I'm coming to Canada at the end of August, I'd like to spend around 5 days in Banff- I plan to take the shuttle bus from Calgary airport to Banff. I'll be travelling on my own and without a car so looking for as many tips as possible on how to see the sights around Banff and Jasper using public transport? Does anyone know of any good tours, hostels etc?

From what I've read most people are saying to go to Jasper as well as Banff- is there a bus I could take to do this?

Thanks all :)…

My husband and I are planning to drive to Quebec from Chicago in the latter half of June 2015 and from Quebec down to Saugerties NY. We are both senior citizens. We most enjoy historical sites and local color. Any tips would be welcome.

Hello all. We're looking to do a road trip this summer with 3 children (ages 9,10 and 12). We want to do some cross border shopping with them for back to school (possible outlet malls), and also find some fun stuff to do along the way (read: water and adventure parks). My husband would like to get them to Seattle so they can see the ocean and possibly take a ferry back into Canada. The catch is that we only have 5 days to do it.

Do you have any suggestions as to the route we might take…
