Montreal by private car

If you consider the snow, the potholes, the dense downtown traffic, the few and expensive parking places and all the signs in French, driving in this huge city can be a true dare if you are not prepared. Downtown, several streets are one way, making somehow intricate turning at an intersection. The autoroutes (those are expressways or freeways) are quite difficult if you are a tourist, because most signs are written in French- although the symbols are quite the same as in English Canada and the United States. Be watchful of the lack of relation between the street names and the real cardinal points: the "east", "west", "north", and "south" of the street names are actually northeast, southwest, northwest and southeast respectively, so the navigation system won’t be very helpful if you are not aware of this.

If you are not willing to lose time and your mind due to the issues listed above, there is available the car rental alternative. Among the advisable ones, there is New England Taxi, that offers cheap but excellent services, or DotTransfers , that has good and effective communication throughout the rent and return process. You can also try Ville Marie Limousines, a very dependable service with English speaker drivers among other additional services.
