KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Brussels

  • Renting a car in Brussels allows you to explore the city's different districts freely and comfortably while avoiding the crowds in public transport. The Belgian capital is easy to navigate, and the roads are well paved and safe to drive on. A hire car is the perfect option for travelers looking to discover other destinations outside the city, such as the picturesque Gaasbeek Castle 9 miles outside of Brussels. Other popular day trips include Antwerp, less than an hour's drive from Brussels, and Bruges, about an hour and a half away.
  • All the big car hire agencies, including Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found in the Arrivals Hall of Brussels Airport (BRU). The airport is located around 7 miles from the city, and the hire rate tends to be the same regardless of whether you book your vehicle in advance or upon arrival. When returning your car to the airport, the car hire entrance is situated on the left side of the airport's access road, as if you're heading to the Front Park 1.
  • Traffic rules in Brussels are very strict. All vehicles coming from the right have priority, and passing another car is forbidden in several locations, including traffic ramps, intersections where the right-hand priority is implemented, or during bad weather. If you're visiting in the winter, be extra cautious as the weather can get quite rough, and rain and snow are constant.
  • Traffic jams are quite common in Brussels, so make sure you avoid the usual rush hours so you don't add extra time to your travels. Morning rush hour is typically between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m., while evening rush hour is normally between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Traffic congestion also peaks in September, when everyone is back from vacation and starting school, sp visiting in the summer months will contribute to a smoother driving experience.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Brussels for $62 or less
  • Book your car hire in Brussels at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Brussels are around 69% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Economy hire cars in Brussels are around 39% cheaper than other car types, on average

Brussels car hire experiences: the best tips from KAYAK users

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Brussels 
Verified travelerDec 2023
Mind the traffic (best to reserve for a longer duration)
nicolasauclaireOct 2023
Have plenty of time at pick up and drop off to check your car and don't leave without checking any scratch ( more than 1 cm ) or nicks in the car Same thing on return . Get your car check by an employee and don't just drop the keys . The driving is very tight and it's very easy to have your car damaged even after you left. Remember until an employee as check the car and close the contract any damaged is yours ! Dropping the keys is not the end of your trip !!

    If you're just planning on driving around the city, a small automatic car that is easy to park is the best option.

For long-term stays, it's best to leave it at one of the many parking lots, which cost a maximum of €28 ($32) a day.

Pros:

We switched our drop off after the terror attempt at another train station. This location (because of the drop off time) made it a lot harder to get the the airport. And there was little in the way of security. We ended up taking a taxi instead of the train. Not Avis fault at all. Just a complication.
