Terminal Information – Departing
This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.
From Gatwick: flights to Montreal usually depart from the South Terminal. This is where Gatwick's train station is located, so if you're arriving on the Gatwick Express this is very handy. The South Terminal has one executive lounge (No.1 Traveller) if you want to kick off your trip in style, but if you have a bit of work to finalise you can always check-in to one of the Regus Express Work Pods. It costs £10* for half an hour. Each booth is soundproofed and boasts an excellent internet connection. There are plenty of restaurants and shops in the South Terminal: it's a bit like a shopping mall.
From Heathrow: Air Canada depart from Terminal 2 (The Queen's Terminal) while British Airways fly from Terminal 5. Terminal 2 has recently been refurbished, and now boasts a range of upmarket shops and restaurants. Canada is outside the EU so you can enjoy duty free shopping in designer stores like Bulgari, Burberry and Alexander McQueen. There are plenty of places to grab a refreshment, including London Pride by Fullers: a bar which sells an exclusive beer brewed specially for Heathrow Airport. Terminal 5 is the newest terminal, and is famous for its luxury shops and high-end restaurants. Don't miss a visit to Gordon Ramsay's Plane Food.
Terminal Information – Arriving
The airport is about 12 miles from the city centre. It can take about an hour to reach the city by road, depending on which time of day you land. The STM Airport Express Bus 747 operates 24 hours a day, and tickets cost $10* (about £4.85). These tickets give you 24 hour access to the STM bus network and metro. There's a taxi rank outside the terminal. Cabs are metered, but have a fixed fare of $40* (about £19.30) to destinations within the city limits.
British citizens require an electronic travel authorisation (eTA) to visit Canada. If you're visiting on a short holiday you won't need a visa to enter the country, but if you're going to Montreal for work or for a few months we recommend speaking to your nearest Canadian embassy.
What to expect in Montreal

You can get a pint of local draught beer for less than £3* and enjoy a three-course meal for two for less than £30*.
