Montreal Canada April 2016-001How to Save 50% on the Trip from Montreal Airport to Downtown Montreal
If you’re following me on , , , and/or Periscope, you know that I was recently in Montreal with . We were there for her big US immigration appointment and after a long and arduous process, she was finally approved. Here’s the whole story.

Upon arriving in Montreal, I quickly learned that getting from Montréal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) to downtown Montreal by cab takes about 20-25 minutes without traffic. Taxis charge a flat rate of $45 without tip. To get back to the airport, we took uberX and it was only $24 and a better experience. Presently, it’s not legal for uberX drivers to pick up from YUL but savvy arriving passengers place the pick-up pin in the Uber app on the Marriott Airport Hotel and then call the driver and tell them which airport door they’re in front of—and then jump in the front seat to save 50%.
