Important information about Brussels car hire

Hiring a car in Brussels is a nice way to navigate the city. With them, you’ll have the chance to tour famous attractions like Saint-Michel Cathedral (a gothic church), and the Belgian Royal Museum of Fine Arts, one of the largest art galleries in the world. From the Brussels Bruxelles-National Airport or Charleroi Brussels Airport, you can visit nearby attractions like Rond-Point Schuman and Place du Grand Sablon, which are a drive away. If you would like to explore the connecting cities like Leuven and Antwerp, use the major roads marked N1-N9, which are suitable for a cheap car rental and people carrier rental. While hired cars in Brussels are affordable, you’ll find parking just as convenient. Parking in the city is typically through the parking Brussels app that allows you to find the nearest public parking locations. Rental cars in Brussels are easy to track down thanks to the almost 20 car hire locations in Brussels.

Is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting Brussels?

With the safe available parking lots and garages in the city, you’ll find hired cars in Brussels essential for in and out of city adventure. Unfortunately, traffic in Brussels can be troublesome. In most cases, heavy traffic occurs during rush hour, typically in the morning and early evening. Other times it occurs due to road maintenance or closures. Brussels car rentals are ideal for visiting close cities like Oostkamp that offer you a chance to exhibit sites like the Neo-Gothic castle in Castle Loppem. For the most part, Brussels is a walkable city due to its small size; however, there are destinations that require Brussels car rentals, such as Atomium and Notre Dame du Sablon on Rue de la Regence. In the heart of Brussels lies Grote Markt, which houses Hotel de Ville. It’s at a short distance from Old Town, where you can comfortably walk while taking epic snaps of the buildings along the way. Because sites, restaurants, and other leisure facilities are not that far apart, a cheap car rental in Brussels is ideal for saving you money and time.

What laws should I keep in mind while driving in Brussels?

In Brussels, there’s a law called the Low Emission Zone that prohibits some vehicles from operating in the city. To drive in the city, you must be of legal age with a driving license of at least one year. Additionally, your age dictates the type of car you can drive. So, if you want an electric car rental or a luxury car rental in Brussels, it’d be wise to speak to your rental company first. It’s critical to remember to drive on the right-hand side on Belgium roads and wear your seatbelt, especially if you’re in a rental car. A reflective safety vest and reflective triangle must be in any four-wheel vehicle in case you need to pull over or have a breakdown. Anything above the legal blood alcohol level for drivers could lead to hefty fines. You can keep up-to-date by checking Brussel’s department of motor vehicles for recent law changes.

Will I need a special driving license or permit to drive a rental car in Brussels if I’m visiting from another country?

First and foremost, you’ll need an International Driver’s Permit and your country’s driving license. Secondly, you’ll need authentication documents, such as your passport or any other proof of identity. Insurance certificates and rental car documentation are also compulsory for visitors. As a non-EU citizen, you must exchange your foreign driving license for a Belgium permanent license after six months in Brussels. Moreover, if you’ve exchanged your foreign license within any EU country, then that driving license is acceptable in Brussels. Locals can apply for a driving license after their eighteenth birthday with the following documents: a recent photo, a declaration of their physical and mental abilities to drive, and an ID or residence card.
