Crossing the border into Canada by car is relatively easy as long as you have the correct documentation with you. All passengers need to be carrying a valid passport or visa. If you have children with you that are not travelling with their parents then you will also need a letter of authorisation from their parents stating that they are allowed to cross the border with you. This is extremely important as you may get turned away without it.
Your car must also be insured correctly. If you are a US citizen then check that your auto-insurance is up to date and you are covered. Many insurance’s do not cover you once you have crossed the border so this is an important matter to check.
