me and a friend are planning to go to canada this year to see a friend of ours that i haven't seen in like 3 years, which brings me to a few questions...do you have to have a passport if you drive to canada? do you have to have a passport to fly to canada? whats the currency they use, and whats the exchange rate? how old do you have to be to get a hotel? the reason for the hotel is, i don't want to stay in their house because that would be rude i think, so if you have any answers, thanks

We use Canadian dollars.

I'm sure you can find the exchange rate on Google, as it changes daily.

i dont think theres an age, but i would think 18
and yes i believe you need passports for either method of travel, i could be wrong.

You do need a passport to get through the border i believe.
#8
you need a passport either way, the exchange rate is just about even between canadian and US dollars atm, and I'm not sure about the age you have to be to get a hotel, but you might be able to get your parents/someone over the age to call ahead and book everything for you

edit: the law was recently (in the last few years) changed for passports and driving from US to Canada/ Canada to US. Although of the four or five times I've been across the border to the states via car, I've only been asked for a passport once, it is the law that you need a passport if they ask for one.

Depends on the hotel, I'm pretty sure. Canadian Dollar is abbreviated CAD.

you need a passport only to fly but not to drive. you must be 18 to book a hotel room. and we have the dollar and it is pretty much matched with the us dollar

They just changed it where you do in fact need a passport to cross mexico/canadian borders

Yes you need a passport, you need to be 18, and like said above, the CAD and the US Dollar are similar at the moment.

I think when it comes to the passport, you won't need one to actually drive IN to Canada, but to get back into the US you do.

As for hotels, I think all you need is photo ID.

You need a passport to cross any country border in the world, whether you are flying or driving. They use Canadian dollars, and i think there is $4CD to £1GBP or $2CD to $1USD. You can get a hotel at any age i believe...

Our rate is basically the same now...only like .03 difference...
#21
To cross the American/Canadian border you only need your birth certificate and an alternate form of I.D. or your passport. You are not required to show a passport yet. They were gonna make so you would need one in September, but they've pushed the date back again so that you won't need one until early '09. Also, the Canadian dollar is sitting at around par or better with the American dollar due to America's economy getting ****ed up.

Not true.


Currently, you don't need a passport to drive through the border. Other photo ID such as a valid drivers license will suffice. They'll give you a pamphlet on how to get a passport.

They are changing the law though. I believe this year too.

Thanks for that lovely contribution.

It's hard to believe that someone actually didn't know what Canadian currency is.

He probably doesn't know our nations leader, either. Yet every Canadian can name the US leader.

The CAD isn't that weak compared to the GBP. 1GBP to every 2CAD

If you haven't been here before, you're going to find it hilarious driving across the border.

Going to Canada: Eh there! How are ye' doing? What do you hope to do in Canada? Oh, sounds like fun, tell him I said hi, be safe.

Going back: License, Birth Certificate, Passport, Grade 10 Math Homework record, sir. *Checks*..So..coming back now? I guess we'll let you in..



So true.

Two people from Detroit JUST came up to visit me two weekends ago (I live in Toronto), and they only needed photo ID and birth certificate to get up across the border. Our dollar is basically the same, if not greater, and yes, you have to be 18 or older to get a hotel room.

And JC13 is right, it's exactly that way xD
I'm going down TO Detroit in a few days and I'm not looking forward to that experience. u_u

WHAT?! erm... no considering the GPB stronger than the USD at the moment, i doubt it.

It's actually about 2CAD to every 1GPB. (approximately)

And if someone didnt know what the canadian currency is. *sigh*

Isn't it something like 3 out of every 10 American children cannot locate Canada on a globe?

Doesn't surprise me that they don't know what our currency is...
