Driving in Québec

Since Canada uses the metric system, speed limits and distances are posted in kilometers per hour (km/h) and gasoline is sold by the liter (l).
Cell phones: use of a hand-held cell phone that does not have a hands-free function is prohibited while driving.
Winter tires: from December 15 to March 15, all taxis and passenger vehicles registered in Québec must be equipped with winter tires. This requirement also applies to rental passenger vehicles in Québec.

Road conditions

For information on road conditions, or other aspects of trip-planning, call 511 or 1 888 355-0511 or visit quebec511.info, or tune Radio circulation 730 am.

Tourist signage

In Québec, tourist regions and directions to services, attractions and activities are indicated on blue roadside signs. For information, see panneaubleu.com and tourisme.gouv.qc.ca/signalisation.

Tipping

Tipping is customary in restaurants, bars and taxis. The amount, which is not included in the bill, is generally equivalent to 15% of the total bill before taxes. For quick tip calculations, Québecers normally add up both taxes. Tipping bellhops or porters is at your discretion (generally, $1 per bag).

Taxes

Québec has two taxes: the 5% federal goods and services tax (GST), and the 9.975% Québec sales tax (QST). An accommodation tax of 3.5% per night/per room also applies in the Laurentians.
