KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Antwerp

  • If you’re looking into arranging car hire in Antwerp, there are many advantages. Despite being able to get around on public transport to most areas of the city, you’ll have a lot more freedom to zoom around town and to other areas outside the city with a hire car. Antwerp is only about a 45min drive from the capital Brussels, or a roughly 45min drive from Ghent, another beautiful Belgian city. Having a hire car can get you to these cities in a much shorter time than a train or bus can, and you don’t have to rely on the train schedule for your return.
  • If you’re thinking about car hire in Antwerp, then doing so from Antwerp International Airport (ANR) is worth it. Here you can check out several different offers on a wide range of models and brands, in comparison to other car hire agencies. You can find the car hire desks located in the Arrivals Hall of the airport terminal. Here you can also arrange the pick-up and drop-off of your chosen vehicle, which takes place at the P2 Premium Parking zone.
  • For Antwerp car hire, it is a good idea to check with the car hire agency if the car can enter the low emission zone (LEZ) of Antwerp city centre. This area is located in Old Town and the centre of Linkeroever across the River Scheldt. Here, cars are strictly prohibited to enter unless they are approved by the LEZ regulations, which you can check with the car hire agency.
  • Certain difficulties that you will come across when driving in Antwerp include the tight streets and one-way systems that may prove tricky. Of course, like in any city, it’s wise to avoid driving during rush hour, as certain roads can get congested. Main thoroughfares such as Franklin Rooseveltplaats, Kipdorpbrug and Sint Jacobsmarkt are to be avoided if you don’t want to spend time in traffic. In the autumn and winter, Antwerp gets its fair share of rain, so extra caution is advised when trying to navigate in wet conditions.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Antwerp?

    Antwerp is quite a compact city, so it’s worth applying that to your hire car selection by choosing a compact vehicle. In the more central areas, close to the city’s historical centre, you’ll find tighter streets with parked cars making it tricky to manoeuvre if in a larger vehicle. Also, should you need to park in the street, a compact car will help you squeeze into those tighter spaces.

  • What’s the speed limit in Antwerp?

    When it comes to speed limits in Antwerp, you will have to keep your speed down to 20-30 km/h when driving around areas like the centre; this depends on the area of the city you are driving in and the speed limit signs on particular streets. In general, urban areas have a speed limit of 50 km/h, while outside of the city, you can drive at 90 km/h. It’s usually 120 km/h on dual carriageways and motorways.

  • Where are the best places to park in Antwerp?

    After you’ve arranged your car hire in Antwerp, one thing to take note of is the parking areas in the city. Antwerp is made of coloured-coded street parking zones. You can find free parking in all areas that are green, while the cheaper paid parking is yellow. However, these are quite far from the city, so it’s advised to park in an orange zone; these are much cheaper than the red zones in the centre, which can be very expensive. Car parks are dotted around the city and generally cost 2-4 € per hour. You can find free car parks at Centraal Kievit P1 – NMBS, just outside the centre, and Scheldekaaien – Cockerillkaai, which is close to the centre, on the riverbank.

4.4 Mediocre

June 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

nothing there was no one available to inspect vehicle

Cons:

We dropped the car off on Sunday and the facility in Antwerp was closed Sunday and possibly Monday (i believe it was closed for holiday?) There was no on to inspect the vehicle; the parking was in an exposed small parking lot. We were later notified of a scratch on the hood that most definitely wasn't there when we left the vehicle. In addition to holding us responsible, they are charging about $1,200 to repair a scratch, which seems excessive. I will admit I don't know the cost of body work in Antwerp but nonetheless, the vehicle was not damaged while in our care.

Pros:

The car was good and the service was fast

Cons:

The address was hard to find, if you try to find it with a GPS you end up at a point near the port of Antwerp, but not near the actual office. I had that problem not only with my GPS on the phone, but also with the GPS of the rented car, and with the GPS of the taxi that I had to take to get there. So in the end I paid extra for a taxi and I was late for an important meeting! When I explained to the lady on the counter she gave no relevant answer.

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing, the office is barely visible, remotely located in an industrial area which closes at 6pm. More than 30 min taxi from Antwerp train station. Just skip it!

Cons:

Difficult to find office, remotely located. And most importantly closed when I arrived at 18h30 despite being advertised as "24h pick up and drop off". The emergency phone no on the wall doesn't answer. Sixt wont refund my pre-payment because "you have to book out of hours appointments before". Thanks, but it was not mentioned anywhere when I booked! What a scam this is! Just forget Sixt in Antwerp! I ended up paying 5 times the price of the rental in order to get on time to my appointment, well 6 times with the pre-payment! Résultat j'ai payé 4 fois le prix de la location en taxi pour être à mon rdv à l'heure. Passez votre chemin avec Sixt à Anvers!
