Car rental is the most efficient way to explore the beautiful natural landscape around Montreal, Canada's second largest city and the ideal destination for a range of outdoor activities. Arrange your car rental with British Airways and you can drive away in your rental car as soon as you arrive in Montreal.
There is much to explore on a car rental holiday in the province of Quebec. Drive 50 miles west of Montreal for a day trip to the Cantons de l'Est, on the border with New England. These Eastern Townships offer a fascinating chance to explore 19th century Loyalist villages, and to take part in a range of outdoor pursuits, such as snowmobile riding.
The area is also a popular destination for ski holidays, with both cross-country and downhill skiing being popular in the winter months. Another major sports destination with easy reach of Montreal with a car rental is The Laurentians, a group of 19 mountains that are among the oldest in the world. The Laurentians are also a popular site for golf, hiking and water sports, and the area's natural beauty and diversity make it a key destination for nature lovers.
Mont St-Saveur is another fashionable skiing destination only 37 miles from Montreal by car, and is particularly well known for its night time skiing, while those looking to conquer the largest mountain in the region should take their car rental to Mont Tremblant Park, a major winter sports centre which houses the 935 metre high peak of Mont Tremlblant.
Nature lovers planning a car rental holiday to Montreal should be sure to visit the Gaspé Peninsula, where visitors can follow the Whale Route and encounter up to a dozen species of whale in their natural habitat, while the nearby Bonaventure Island houses a number of rare bird species. For those seeking civilisation, the towns of Magog and Mont Orford are easily reached with a car rental, providing a convenient base from which to explore the surrounding countryside as well as being enjoyable tourist destinations in their own right.
British Airways operates in partnership with Avis to provide you with the highest quality car rentals. All rentals include mandatory third party liability insurance*, unlimited mileage, collision damage waiver (excess applies), theft protection (excess applies), taxes and airport surcharges*. If you want to reduce excess payments, you can pay for Super Collision Damage Waiver when you collect your car.
When you book your car rental at the same as your Montreal flights and hotel, you can make significant savings by booking all parts of your holiday together with British Airways, rather than arranging each part separately. If you're heading to Montreal to experience the region's excellent skiing opportunities this winter, you can also arrange your ski holiday at the same time.
