Save money while visiting Montreal

visiting Montreal

Montreal is one of the oldest and most attractive Canadian destinations and attracts millions of visitors each year. When visiting Montreal the number of exciting activities, world-class restaurants, and unique tourism destinations is almost too extensive to list.

In the midst of all of this fun, however, it can help to find a way to spend less on your visit to La Belle Province (an affectionate nickname for the province of Quebec). Whether you’re trying to make a vacation budget stretch further or want to include as much as you possibly can in a single trip, saving money is always a welcome ambition.

The Secret of Online Contests

One of the best ways to spend less money anywhere you happen to be is to enter online contests. If you want to find contests in Canada that offer prizes that you can use for a specific trip, your best option is to go to a website that provides local online contest listings.

The secret to winning contests online is to be sure to enter as many as you can that apply to your needs. If you use an online website that lists all of the best contests, you can enter more because you won’t have to spend the extra time searching the entire internet for more contests and trying to gauge whether they are worthwhile or not.

If you want to save money on the things you buy in Montreal, you’ll need to look for contests that offer prizes specific to that city. Another way to use online contests toward your trip is to enter as many contests that offer cash prizes as possible.

Coupon listings

Another excellent option for saving money is to find coupons that apply to stores and entertainment options in Montreal. For example, if you find coupons from franchises that exist across Canada, you can be sure to find them in Montreal. Websites that are dedicated to listing local online contests often also provide up-to-date information on coupons and freebies. 

What are freebies?

The same types of companies that offer coupons sometimes also offer freebies. The difference between the two is that you often don’t need to buy anything initially to get free product samples. As long as the products apply to things that you might like to pay for while travelling, like food, transportation or visiting a theatre, then you’ll be able to save money on your trip. 

Take a Montreal walking tour

Montreal is a city filled with gorgeous architecture and local art. It isn’t easy to go anywhere in the city without running into these breathtaking sights. As such, one way you can take in the city without spending much money is to take a self-guided walking tour of Montreal’s best neighbourhoods.

Montreal’s best neighbourhoods:

  • The Old Port
  • The Plateau
  • Downtown
  • Mile End
  • Little Italy

offer a wide range of unparalleled restaurants, shops and sights. You might also consider stopping on The Main (Rue St. Laurent) to pick up some wine and cheese to take to the park areas of Parc la Fontaine or Mount Royal.

When you take a trip to any major city, it can be easy to allow your spending to spiral out of control. To keep your budget on par while continuing to have plenty of fun, keep tips like online contests, coupons and freebies in mind while you’re on vacation.
