Airport Transfers and Taxi Service in Canada
Extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific to dip into the northern Arctic Ocean Canada, the largest country in North America, is well-known worldwide for its vast, intact landscape but certainly has more to offer than its coast and mountains. Its unique mix of cultures and multi-sided history is a promise of inequivalent adventure from coast to coast. Canada ranks as one of the world's wealthiest countries and a major tourist destination filled with unexpected wonders.
Historically built and influenced by settlers from Britain and France, Canada possesses a dual nature which is very different from its neighbour the United States; Canadian people primarily speak French in some parts of the country. It is better to consider Canada's distinct regions when talking about specific destinations within the country.
Whether you are in Canada on a short holiday, on a business trip, for skiing or just in between flights, we are here to help you reach your destination.
Here's Your Taxi-Finder guide to Canada, its Attractions and Things to do during your stay.
City Transfers & Taxi services in Canada
Canada is composed of ten provinces and three territories which, in turn may be grouped into four main regions: Western, Northern, Central and Atlantic Canada, (Central Canada and Atlantic Canada are sometimes referred together as “Eastern Canada").
The Atlantic Region includes the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island,Newfoundland & Labradorto the north of the group.
These provinces are all linked to the sea and have a natural beauty mixed with a coastal way of life. Prince Edward Island is known for its beaches, Nova Scotia for its more than 700 annual festivals of Celtic and Gaelic traditions. French cultural heritage and history becomes vibrant in street festivals and traditional music in New Brunswick. The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is simply astonishing with natural beauty.
The Central Region comprises Ontario and Québec. This region is home to the more than half of the population of Canada living in the surrounding cities and towns of the St. Lawrence River and Valley and the five Great Lakes between Ontario and the United States (of which is Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in the world.)
Québec, home to 8 million predominantly French-speaking people, is the only Canadian province to have French as its sole official language. Montreal, famous for its cultural diversity, is Canada's second largest city after Toronto and the largest French-speaking city in the world after Paris.
Ontario province has a large and culturally diverse population of more than 12 million people; that is to say nearly 40% of Canadians. Canada's capital city Ottawa is found in Ontario and Toronto is the country's main financial centre. Niagara, a region in Southern Ontario is notorious for its vineyards, wines and fruit crops. The Niagara falls are at the frontier with the USA and are easily reachable from Toronto and Montreal with
Ontario has the largest French-speaking population outside of Quebec, all very proud at having preserved their history and culture through time and change.
The other regions of Canada are the Prairies (provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta), The North (provinces of Nunavut, Northern Territories and Yukon which are mostly inhabited by Natives) and the British Columbia region, home to the port of Vancouver.
To drive from one end of the country to the other could take 2 weeks or more (including some stopping at roadside attractions and enjoying meals and breaks along the way). Flying from Toronto to Vancouver takes over 4 hours. This vibrant and culturally rich country will undoubtedly leave an impression of satisfaction on you that will make you want to come for more.
Snowmobiling is becoming an increasingly popular sport in Alberta.
The Rockies along with several mountain ranges offer Downhill skiing, Cross-country skiing and Snowboarding. Mont-Blanc, Mont Stutton, Blue mountain and Calabogie Peaks Ontario are among our favorites along with Bromont and its 114 slopes.
Dog sledding is gaining in popularity in Ontario and on the West coast and Luge is getting trendier and trendier in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec. Do note that Luge is not an activity for the faint-of-heart.
But if you prefer calmer activities you could go for Ice fishing or get a seat to watch a game of Curling, Hockey or Lacrosse, now recognized as Canada's official national sport.
The Canadian Rockies also hosts a number of resorts ideal for families, namely Mont-Blanc, Mont-Saint-Sauveur and Glen Eden Ontario. All these ski resorts are reachable by airport and ski transfers easily. It is advised that you book your hotel, ski transfer and ski materials very well in advance.
Most ski resorts have neighbouring airports, making it very convenient to reach into the Canadian mountain ranges by airport transfer. Getting to your favourite ski station can also be done from neighbouring train stations.
Transport & Airport Transfers in Canada
Unless you are planning on crossing Canada from east to west, renting a car at the airport is an option that comes with a handful of inconvenience. The agencies have high renting fares which are usually topped with taxes, surcharges and additional fees.
Hailing a taxi at a Canadian Airport is quite a battling adventure, queuing up is mandatory and when you get one after some 30 minutes in line, there is always the risk of ending up with a high rated fare due to detours or heavy traffic, especially if you are going into busy cities or distant towns and regions.
If you need to catch a taxi in Canada you can hail one in the street, book one in advance or go to a taxi rank, where you might have to wait if you are in a busy area. However additional charges such as luggage fees, taxes and waiting time are not included and can rapidly mount up the initial agreed tariff.
If you do happen to hop in a taxi, our advice is to stick to licensed ones. If you get a single person fare, do not hesitate to say no if the taxi wants to pick people up on the way or if the taxi driver wants 'extra money for traffic', even if you agreed on a price before the trip.
