Brussels Car Rental
If you plan to stay for more than 10 days or you prefer to drive around to explore the city and surroundings then renting a car can be an inexpensive option (about €50 a day including insurance and taxes for 10 days). There are many car rental companies, major ones such as Avis, Hertz and Europcar and also some smaller ones such as TC Location (from Brussels Charleroi). All have websites to reserve a car in advance and if you pay online there may be discounts.
Vehicle pick up points are usually located close to major transport locations such as Brussels Airport, Brussels Charleroi or Brussels-Midi station. Surcharges at airports apply. There are also points in the city centre close to major hotels. Take particular note of the mileage charges which may be limited or unlimited. The minimum age of car rental in Belgium is 23 years old, middle class cars 25 years old and luxury cars 30 years old.
When you are driving in Brussels ensure you are aware of certain important traffic rules which may differ from your country such as the “right turn priority” rule. All cars drive on the right hand side. Read up on the driving laws at www.mobilit.fgov.be (French). Some roads are completely cobblestone and have no lanes, in these cases, keep to your right and watch carefully for on-coming traffic. There are also many pedestrian crossings which may not be well-marked so drive with caution in heavy pedestrian areas.
