As one of Europe’s smaller countries, Belgium is easily explored by car. And although the country has an excellent train and bus network, driving lets you explore at your own convenience and reach those villages and areas of countryside that are off the beaten track. Any visit to the country should take in the capital city of Brussels, along with the cities of Bruges and Antwerp. All are connected by fast freeways, making it possible to use Brussels as a base and take day trips. When choosing car rental Belgium visitors can rent their car at the Brussels airport or at various places around the city. It’s worth booking ahead of time, not only to ensure availability, but to get the best rate. If you plan to drive in neighbouring Germany, France or the Netherlands, make sure your rental policy allows that.
