Toronto 2010

Getting From the Airport to the Hotel

T.O.'s airport is Lester B. Pearson International, one of the busiest in North America. It's located 45 minutes -- about a $55 cab ride -- from downtown.

In addition to taxi and limo services, at about one-third the cost of cabbing it, an Airport Express Shuttle runs from the arrivals terminal to downtown every 40 minutes between 4:15 am and 11:10 pm. The nearest dropoff point is across from the hotel at the corner of York and Richmond Streets. Note: travelers may save 10% by booking online. Fares increase July 1, so you may want to book before then to save a few additional dollars.

Cheaper still -- $3.00 -- is the TTC city bus that runs between the airport and the Kipling subway station in the city's west end. From Kipling station, travel eastbound to St. George station and jump on the southbound train to the Osgoode station -- from here it's just a short walk to the Hilton Toronto.

Know Your Phone...Charges

U.S. attendees are advised to check with their individual cell phone carriers regarding additional charges that may apply while in Canada. Unless paying lots of additional money is your thing, check with your carrier to avoid unecessary or surprise charges for international service, roaming, data charges and whatever else the companies can potentially add to your bill.

Do I Need a Passport?

Travel documentation: Effective June 1, 2009, all U.S. citizens are now required to present a passport book, passport card, or WHTI-compliant document when re-entering the United States.

U.S. citizens traveling by air will need a passport to re-enter the United States.

The passport card is only valid for land and sea travel between the U.S. and Canada.

For official international travel documentation information, check the U.S. Department of State website. Be advised that there are private companies offering passport assistance for various fees. Some of these sites resemble the U.S. Department of State website, so be sure you are on the right site.
