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 £24 or less
  • Book your car hire in Brussels at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Brussels are around 7% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Economy car hires in Brussels are around 43% cheaper than other car types, on average

What type of car is recommended for driving in Brussels?

If you're just planning on driving around the city, a small automatic car that is easy to park is the best option. But if you're planning on a road trip to other Belgian cities or even neighboring countries, consider a sedan — particularly if you're traveling with the entire family, as it offers more space and comfort for everyone.

What's the speed limit in Brussels?

The speed limit in the city is typically 50 kilometers per hour (31 miles per hour), but it may be as low as 12 mph in certain residential areas. The speed limit on open roads is 90 km/h (56 mph) and on highways, it is set at 120 km/h (75 mph). If, for some reason, the speed limit lowers in specific places, traffic signs will always be posted.

You can find lower prices of around €4.92 ($5.57) per gallon, and the higher prices are usually €6.06 ($6.86) per gallon. Don't forget that, across most of Europe, petrol is priced by the liter and not the gallon. Most petrol stations are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Where are the best places to park in Brussels?

In the city center, street parking is paid from Monday to Saturday, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. You can leave your car for an unlimited amount of time (except in busy shopping areas), and meter pricing ranges between €1 ($1.13) and €2.50 ($2.83) per hour. 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. To avoid parking in the city center altogether, drop your vehicle at one of the free Park and Ride facilities on the outskirts of Brussels.
