Montréal is one of those incredible destinations where you can do and see a lot without breaking the bank! All you have to do is take advantage of great deals and discounts available. Read on…

Where to stay
When you book a Sweet Deal package, not only do you get the third night at half-price, you also receive a booklet of fantastic discount coupons for activities and attractions worth $500! Independent hotels and B&Bs are also great places to find charming accommodation at reasonable rates. Often situated in residential neighbourhoods, they serve up a real “taste” of the city. Alternately, other interesting accommodation options include youth hostels, university residences, furnished apartments and apartment hotels. The choice is yours!

How to get around
Montréal boasts a simple, convenient and extensive public transit system (metro and bus), with tourist passes available for a one, three or seven-day period. Or if you are into pedal-power, the city’s BIXI self-serve bike share service is a fun and practical way to see the city sights: accessible 24/7 from May to November, BIXI allows you to borrow a bike from one destination, travel to where you want to go, and return the bike to any other drop-off point in the network.

What to do when you get here
Above and beyond the numerous wallet-friendly activities and attractions to be enjoyed in the city (hint: walking tours are a great way to see the city for cheap!), Montréal offers other ways to have fun on limited coin: The Montréal Museum Pass is a practical and inexpensive way to enjoy all the culture Montréal has to offer, at your own pace. Likewise, La Vitrine is a one-stop arts and entertainment hub, with last-minute deals on all sorts of cultural goings-on.

À bientôt!
