Is it just easier to hire car from Toronto Airport?

Originally was going to fly Boston to Buffalo and then some form of transport to Marriott on the Falls, trying to get there cheapest and quickest as we only have two nights and 2 persons and luggage. Now thinking Boston to Toronto, pick up a car and drive to Falls stay two nights and back to Toronto to fly to Montreal. The cost of the car is about $130. Then we might have to do the casino /gamble option for free parking rather than pay Marriott $30 per night and have a giggle watching the money vanish in 5 minutes thru the slot! Any thoughts?

Your flights to Buffalo will be cheaper than to Toronto.

Why not rent a car in Buffalo for the NF part?

However, flying to Montreal does put a wrinkle, as there would be no direct flights from Buffalo to YUL.

Lots of flights to YUL from Toronto from either Pearson or downtown city centre (Billy Bishop) airport.

It's a toss up.

Maybe fly to Buffalo, take a cab to NF then stay....take train/bus NF to Toronto, fly Toronto to Montreal....maybe even the train NF to Montreal.... A little more work involved, but I could picture it being cheaper...

Definitely fly from Boston to Buffalo- JetBlue and US Airways fly non stop and the fare is typically less than $100/person. It is easy and inexpensive to reach Downtown Toronto by bus or train but any direct transportation to Pearson Airport will be more expensive so consider taking the train, bus or flying on Porter to Montreal.
