  I shall be visiting Canada in summer - Quebec City.

Being a student, what is the cheapest and easiest way to travel between Quebec - Ottawa?
Do you have to buy train tickets in advance - or they are available on travel dates?

Is there an equivalent of South West Airlines in Canada?

Any advise is appreciated.

Take my advice: get yourself a nice Toyota Tacoma and get a good mattress in the back and a shell over it... and drive! I am heading to Quebec city myself; it is a good place to visit during summer.

Sadly, I have been to Quebec city only twice in my life. It is a little bit of Europe and a lovely place to visit in summer.

I will have to defer to the eastern folks for advice. I am a western girl. You cannot imagine how far Quebec City is from Vancouver. You could drive for days and not be there yet!

Thanks for the advise.

Tell me about the trains - does one have to book in advance or can really show up to buy a ticket (and get at same price as booked)?

I´m not sure about my dates of travel hence cannot book early. You advice shall be appriciated.

My wheels are my legs. I kind of pity folks who think about trains and all those crappy things.

If you book in advance, the trip from Ottawa to Quebec is about $60. If you wait until all the cheaper seats have sold out, it´s closer to $100.

I definitely recommend the train to get around, especially if you can book in advance.

If you´re looking for cheap airfare, look at Westjet. Unfortunately, they don´t fly to QC.
