Travelling to Montreal, Canada

Flying over to Montreal is the fastest way especially when you’re on a business trip. But if you’re on a vacation, then you can book your flights and hotel together as a package from travel agencies. There are many attractive packages and cheap flights to Montreal available for you to choose from.

Going to Montreal is like going to Paris for it has architectures, variety of gourmet dining and a mixture of more than 40 ethnic communities. During winter, the temperature drops to -30 so is really cold. But the weather doesn’t stop people from going out because there will be carnivals, underground shopping and lots of fun! The Underground city is the best getaway during winter. You’ll be able to find buildings such as museums, restaurants and other facilities there.

If you’re not planning a trip to Montreal during the winter, it is okay. You might find yourself having more fun instead. Take a tour to Vieux Montreal where you’ll find the City Hall, Bonsecours Market and the Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel. You can also cycle in parks, and skate at outdoor skating rinks. For night goers, you can enjoy a drink or two at the bars.

Summer is usually the peak season that falls from late June till August. So it is the most expensive time for you to make bookings. The weather is warm with several festivals and competitions such as the International Fireworks Competition and the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival.

If you prefer the off peak season, then you should go in September till October. The weather is still fine and there are lesser visitors. The best time to visit is spring because the bookings drop dramatically due to the mud season. You might feel a bit uncomfortable though.

If you’re a nature lover, do visit Montreal Biodome which is a zoo of four ecosystems such as Tropical Forest and Saint Lawrence Marine Eco-system. Don’t miss it!

From the airport to the centre of Montreal and major hotels, you can either get a city transfer in an airport shuttle bus or hire a cab. You can also have car rental services. At the airport itself, there are ATMs, money exchangers, duty-free and other shops. If you’re hungry, get a bite from the food outlets. For disabled travellers, do request for special needs facilities in advance when making bookings.

No worries of going around in Montreal as there are public facilities like busses and metro (trains) that you can travel in. Make sure your passport and visa are valid prior to making bookings. Carry them with you all the time.
