You could take the VIA train from Ottawa to Montreal as an alternative to driving.

It's a fast train, in The Corridor. Passes Dorval Airport with a shuttle from the train station to Dorval. Or go to Union Station and take a cab to the airport.

If you splurge and take Business Class, your meal and all drinks are included.

That's comforting to know, she flies home tomorrow, let's hope it's uneventful for her.

Bloody foreigners, using their own language in their own country.

Good point. I think the OP is closer to Kingston and the train from Toronto to Montreal stops in Kingston and most trains stop at Dorval. An inability to speak french is not an issue at all at Dorval. I think buying train tickets on a Tuesday saves some money as well.

Thanks for all the replies- I think I am going to fly from Montreal but get the train to Dorval and then the 5 minute airport shuttle bus- seems the simplest option to me.
