Montreal is an older city and thus many of the streets can be a bit on the smaller side. For the most part, a mid-sized vehicle will be comfortable on Montreal’s roads, but to play it safe, it may be worth it to rent a sedan or a smaller vehicle. This is especially the case if you plan on exploring the older parts of the city.
The speed limits in Montreal, Quebec, and in Canada are in general a bit lower than what is seen in the United States. So, be prepared to drive a little slower than you are used to. Some of the speeds you may see posted in Montreal include 50 km/h (31 mph) in most urban and residential areas and 100 km/h (62 mph) on highways.
Petrol prices can be a bit expensive outside of the United States due to higher taxes and lower subsidies on fuel. In Montreal, the average petrol price is around $4 per gallon. Travelers should note that the prices will be listed per liter at petrol stations in Montreal.
There are a wide variety of parking options available in Montreal from streetside parking to serviced lots. In general, prices on weekends will be cheaper than during work hours on weekdays. On-street parking will also be a better deal than short-term parking lots.
