    • Best Cell / Mobile Phone to use in Banff / Sunshine / Lake Louise area of Canada

      Banff May 15, 2015 at 2:45 AM

      I will be in the Banff area for a number of months and would like some advice on what is the most cost effective and useful cell / mobile service provider to use. My uk issued smartphone is quad band so should work for calls but the 3G frequency will be wrong for internet service. Internet service in Canada seems relatively expensive compared to UK so I am wondering if it would be better to use wifi hotspots where possible. Any advice would be appreciated.

    • Activities for 9 year old granddaughter

      Victoria May 18, 2015 at 12:13 PM

      My 9 year old granddaughter will be traveling with me for a Grandma/Granddaughter trip in a few weeks, staying in the Inner Harbor area. I've been to the area several times with my husband and am familiar with the regular spots; fisherman's wharf, Beacon Hill Park, Royal BC Museum,Empress Tea Room, Parliament Bldg.,etc. Would like some suggestions for some unusual things to do that would be of interest to a 9 year old who loves art, music, history. We will have 3 full days and will have a car. Any festivals happening the week of May 25?

      Hello fellow VTers,
      I will be in Toronto for a week in August attending the Rogers Cup tennis tournament. I will need a prepaid SIM card for my unlocked GSM phone. Can you recommend a carrier?
      I will not have a car. Is there any public transit to Rexall Center from Yorkville?

    • Finding Cheap Flights

      Calgary May 3, 2015 at 12:04 PM

      I plan on going on a trip this summer but seeing as I am on a students budget I was hoping that I could just improvise based on what trip seems to be the most affordable.
      I was hoping that someone could recommend a resource where I do not have to know my destination, only a travel date and location from which I am departing.

      Thanks so much!

    • 24 Hour Bus Pass

      Montreal May 7, 2015 at 8:09 AM

      I am trying to understand the STM website re the day pass or 24 hour pass (are they the same thing?). If I land at the airport and get a pass for $10 does that include my shuttle downtown plus the Metro for the day? Do I need to have an Opus card for this? I saw a reference to paying exact cash using coins only? Can anyone pull this together for me? Merci.

      What is the current process for Customs and Immigration at Toronto Pearson from the US?

      Toronto May 8, 2015 at 2:07 PM

      Guys, who has recently been through Terminal 1 at Pearson from outside Canada? The Official Spousal Unit is flying from DFW to Pearson this weekend, and we are trying to determine the process for Customs and Immigration.

      We have often been through C & I in T3 on American Airlines, but not on Air Canada, a different terminal.

      In the US, we now have Automated Passport Control kiosks ( cbp.gov/travel/us-citizens/a... ) which supposedly speed things up nicely. But so far, what little that I can find suggests that the kiosks in Toronto for inbound people is only for Canadian residents.The airport website, Canadian Immigration website and Air Canada website have all been remarkably unhelpful...

      Anyone with recent experience?

      Christmas/New Years in Whitehorse

      by jjkent Online Now Aug 14, 2014 at 10:25 PM

      I am planning a winter adventure in NWT or YT. I am a former Alaska resident and would like to spend about a week skiing (classic and skate), ice fishing, skijoring, kite skiing, camping, viewing the northern lights, bars & restaurants, etc. Most of my friends here in the States are not even remotely interested in joining me on my winter adventure so I would love to join groups or find a guide to do these things. My time off is around Christmas and/or New Years. My question: where should I go in Whitehorse, or should I go somewhere else in Canada, i.e. Yellowknife? Thanks!

      We will be in Whitehorse and Dawson City around July 15 -22nd. We will require camp ground to park 17 foot travel trailer. Do we need to book ahead or are there sufficient places available in each town.

      September in Whitehorse

      by CdnJane Online Now Aug 2, 2011 at 8:58 AM

      An Aussie friend and I are considering driving, mid-September 2012, from Skagway to Whitehorse (yes, we are aware that he has to rent the car as Canadian law won't allow a car rented in the US by a Canadian into Canada! Makes no sense that an Aussie can rent the car!) Is this a safe drive at that time of year? (ie, it IS too early for snow, right???) I'm assuming we have to be wary of moose and other wildlife on the roads? Are the Northern Lights visible in September? What about returning via Haines Junction, and the Haines Highway? I know we'd have to get the ferry from Haines to Skagway, but is that a viable idea?
      Any hotels that we should avoid? Since we have a car, it does mean we don't have to stick to downtown hotels or ones by the airport - any highly recommended places for just one night? Any restaurants that really are must go to's? We're not looking for high-end - just good food, and hopefully locally sourced.
      Thank you for your assistance. VTers are the best!

    • Whitehorse in winter

      by italmelb Online Now Feb 14, 2010 at 4:18 AM

      Hello All
      I am coming to Whitehorse in December as part of my round the world trip
      I already found a hostel where to stay, but I do have some other questions...

      1) What is the weather like in December? much snow? any -40 days?
      2) Are the northern lights visible regularly in winter? does Whitehorse gets ice fog like Yellowknife?
      3) What's the downtown area like?
      4) Any organized tours/activities I can do while I am there?
      5) Any dangerous animals roaming around the city?

      Thanks!
