I'm a citizen of an EU member state traveling to a small city in Vermont. Looking at flight data, it seems that it would be quite a bit quicker to fly into Montreal (Canada) and then drive a rental car to my final destination in Vermont (and back), rather than getting a connecting flight into a small local US airport. I am slightly worried about the trouble I might get myself into by crossing a land border twice, though.
Can anyone give me an idea of what I'd be getting into in terms of:
- Crossing time
- Additional paperwork required
For both the outbound (Canada/US) and the return leg (US/Canada) of my journey, when compared to crossing the border at an international airport?
Also, do I need to take any special actions when I'm arranging a rental car if I intend to drive it over to the US and back?
