      Gaspé Jul 6, 2015 at 1:29 PM

      I am travelling to Gaspe airport (YGP) from Toronto (YYZ) via Air Canada. Once I reach Gaspe I intend to travel in a rental car to New Brunswick, PEI, Cape Breton. The whole trip is around 10 days long.
      I checked with the rental car companies and the province of Quebec has per Km pricing and no kms are free.
      Hence I need to move out of Quebec and then rent a car preferably in the province of New Brunswick (Bathurst or Moncton) for the entire trip.
      Can some one please help me in this regard. How do i travel out of Gaspe via a Bus or any other means to Bathurst in New Brunswick ?
      Moreover if someone knows of any rental agency in Gaspe, QC that charges just like in the province of Ontario pls do let me know ?

    • Use of English outside of the big cities

      Quebec Jul 10, 2015 at 4:07 AM

      An American friend, who doesn't speak any French, who does a lot of travel withing Quebec as part of his job, told me that he used to run into hostility from merchants and the public in general in Quebec, outside of Montreal and Quebec City, when he'd ask questions in English. He said he learned a trick to solve the problem. When he enters a store, he starts off by saying, "Habla Espanol?" then "Sprechen sie Deutch?". While the locals typically don't speak Spanish or German, they assume that the person is not American and not an English speaking Canadian.
      Then, with a fake accent, he says "Do you speak English?". Usually the merchant is then relieved, and delighted to speak English. Apparently anti-English resentment is not really against the English language, but against Americans and Canadians who take it for granted that everyone should speak English.
      Has this worked for any of you?

      Cheaper accommodations - Inns

      by olivepip Online Now Feb 10, 2010 at 9:30 PM

      v's larger hotels.

      Anyone know about Confederation Inn, or The Westgate Inn? Both along 22nd St W & Circle Drive W
      They're definately a lot cheaper than hotels like, say, Days Inn or Country Inn & Suites.
      But is it worth it? I wouldn't be spending a lot of time there & extra comforts (found in more expensive hotels) aren't a priority. But then I don't want to stay in a dive either!
      I just want a comfy bed, a clean room, hot water and a feeling of safety.
      I'll have a car too, so distance to things won't be a problem.

      So just wondering if anyone knows of & can give an opinion on these two places.

      Much appreciated,

      Hello Everyone,
      Well I am going to visit the lovely Saskatoon in July and looking forward to it from what you all say in the tip pages etc.

      You are all in the know, so tell me if you think Westjet will have a fantastic seat sale after I buy my flights from Toronto to Sask this week ( I am looking at Canada Jazz airline) - raise your hands if you think I should hold off for a while (get those crystal balls out) It is crazy to think I can get from Belfast in NI to Toronto cheaper - anyway...

      The next thing is, do any of you have brilliant insight into Car Hire in Saskatoon - I need to get a car/
      big car to fit 6 of us and luggage and head to Yorkton.

      Any advice would be great.
      Looking forward to tasting those berries.
