Driving is expensive, taking the bus or subway isn’t. There’s less flexibility, but the savings and the extra reading time are definitely worth it. Getting your driver’s permit in Quebec also isn’t cheap, costing both a cash and time. It’s why I figured it wasn’t worth my time getting a driver’s permit.
Traveling to Remote Parks
I recently got back from a canoe camping trip at La Mauricie National Park for work. It was extremely enjoyable and I’d like to relive a similar experience.
The problem is that I would need to find lifts. Most national parks and remote campgrounds are not easily accessible by foot or bus. As someone who hates planning, it would be much easier for me to rent a car for a weekend than try and plan something with my friends or family members with licenses. It also doesn’t hurt that you will be able to get into any Park Canada parks free soon!
Spontaneous Day Trips
This is pretty obvious. While travelling out of the country is great. If I only have a few days, I’d like to be able start exploring cities around Montreal.
Cheap Hotel Rooms
I don’t mind the idea of sleeping in car. Will have to update this when I try it.
