I just did a quick google search, and it looks like it used to be a problem for Canadians in a US rental, but not Americans in a US rental.
Nor trouble for Canadians in a Canadian rental driving into the US.

I found out trying to book a Zipcar in Seattle to drive a bunch of stuff to Vancouver that, as a Canadian resident, I can't drive a car with US plates into Canada, per Canadian customs. That if I stole a Zipcar or rental car would get me into a lot more trouble than trying to avoid taxes/duties doesn't matter at all. (I couldn't do it the other way around, because the Zipcar allowance for US cars is 200 mi/day, well over a one-way trip, and the allowance for Canadian cars is 200 km/day, which doesn't work.)


And also let the rental company know.
Yes, they need to issue you a Canadian insurance card.

I'm confused - is this Skate Canada 2013?

No, this is for Skate Canada 2012 in October of 2012. Skate Canada 2013 would be more than a year from now.

Does anyone know when the individual event tickets will go on sale? Looking to do men's and maybe dance or pairs.

I know there are some rental car companies in Canada that don't allow their cars to be taken over the border.

That's a really late announcement, isn't? Skate American was announced in May.

Reviving this thread because I'm seriously considering going to SC if I get the time off. I'm thinking of visiting friends at U of M and then renting a car and driving to Windsor. Anyone have any experience with crossing the boarder in a rental? Is it a problem?

Also, I was wondering if anyone might be looking for a hotel roommate. I promise to try not to get ridiculously lost or have any major car troubles this year. ;)

No car troubles would be a VERY good thing!!;)

I believe Skate Canada 2012 was announced in November 2011 when all event tickets went on sale.
