Tourist card; leaving from Canada

Hello, we are leaving from Canada but are travelling with United (American airline). We bought our packages through Orbitz. Do we need to purchase the tourist card or is it included in our package? I have read on this forum that departures from Canada have the tourist card included; however what bugs me is that we are travelling with United. It's just that we are travelling with a baby and I would like to avoid the line ups at the airport by purchasing it beforehand. Also do we need a separate tourist card for our baby (6 months)? Thank you!

Is your original flight from Canada with United or are you connecting to United?

My daughter and I are Canadians leaving from Detroit and flying with AirTran. We need to purchase a tourist card. Call the Orbitz toll free number and they may be able to clarify things for you.

You will have to purchase the tourist card online or pay when you arrive at the PUJ airport... It doesn't matter that your leaving from Canada it goes by the airline.

Plus United doesn't fly direct from Montreal, I presume you have a connecting flight in ERW (Newark). Most likely the majority of the people on your flight will be in line purchasing the card in PUJ so yes it's best you purchase online to skip the line at the airport.
