Montreal to New York to Boston to Montreal

Does anyone know how long it takes to travel between each city by car?

I will be in Montreal in July/August and we are thinking of renting a car. We thought about staying a couple of nights in Boston on the way back up.

Can anyone in the know help me out?

Thanks

Big Grin I would say...take Amtrak

Rental cars between the two countries can be tricky...just a warning!

If I remember correctly, Montreal and NY are about 8-10 hours apart. and four hours from NY to Boston (pending traffic). I've never driven the Boston-Montreal trip....but I bet it is pretty (through New England).

Otherwise, I would say take the train (ever think you would hear that from an American?)! Amtrak has decent service, and I feel NYC is so easy to do via public transit. Boston is fairly easy to see via public transit too!

Best of luck and enjoy your trip here in North America!

new york to boston will take ya 5 hours, unless you go in the middle of the night or on like a sunday morning. you can't figure in how long it will take you if there isn't any traffic 'cause, well, there's always traffic on 95.

I've never had any trouble at all with rental cars being taken between countries (this included both renting here and going to the US and renting in the US and going here). The only thing they were adamant about is that I not take the car to Mexico. But then again, I'm a Canadian citizen so maybe their rules are different?

probably, we rented a car in AZ just to take to Mexico because we didn't want to bring our own...they suggested Mexican insurance for another 20 bucks or so...but other than that no problems.
