Ted’s Smart Travel Notebook: Montreal ??

FairFX is an official sponsor of Sky Sports F1® for the 2017 Formula 1 season, which means we’ll be running some great competitions throughout the season and our blog will feature lots of exciting travel tips, videos and behind the scenes insights. Head to our Sky Sports F1® hub to see the latest videos and tips >>

Montreal is set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River and named after Mount Royal, the hill at the heart of the city that provides an iconic view. Every area of the city has its own charm with cobbled streets, French colonial influence and Gothic architecture.

Canada’s second largest city also hosts a smorgasbord of world cuisine in its culture enriched boroughs, don’t forget to try poutine (fries with gravy and cheese curds) for the true Canadian experience though.



Just in time for the Montreal Grand Prix, we’ve teamed up with the legendary Ted Kravitz of Sky Sports F1® for his Smart Travel Notebook.

Join Ted as he walks around Montreal, presenting the second edition of Ted’s Smart Travel Notebook. Find out how to get to the circuit and what to do once you’re there.

In this edition of Ted’s Smart Travel Notebook, Ted shares his tips on where the drivers and team bosses like to dine, the best place to watch the race from, and how to turn your trip into a true North American road trip.

This is Ted’s second Smart Travel Notebook, with his first feature in the new series starting in Monaco.


If you’re heading to Montreal, order or top-up your FairFX Everywhere Card to pay like a local. Use in shops, restaurants and at ATMs, wherever you see the Mastercard® Acceptance Mark.
