  1. Default Advice for summer trip niagara to montreal

    Planning a family trip to Canada from Ireland and want to drive from Niagara falls (Canada) to Montreal. Have about 5 days to get there. Is it more interesting to go through N.Y. state and Vermont or drive through Canada. Can we bring hire car across to US.Where are the best places to stop. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

    Whatever you do, a car rented in the US must be returned in the US, and a car rented in Canada must be returned in Canada. You may cross the border as long as you have permission from the rental company.

    Other than the possibility of a geographical restriction on your car hire contract, there is no reason to view the drive from Niagara Falls to Montréal as an either/or proposition, and I would actually think that the best alternative is to do bits of both Canada and the United States. The northern (Canadian) shore of Lake Ontario is probably the more interesting including as it does Toronto and several lakeshore provincial parks, The the Thousand Islands region at the headwaters of the St. Lawrence River offers multiple attractions on both sides of the border. The Adirondacks of New York and Lake Champlain offer a wealth of scenic and interesting attractions. I recommend taking a ferry across the lake to Burlington, VT. So. that's the general route I'd take. As noted, check with the car hire firm to make sure travel to the U.S. is permitted and you should be good to go.
