Expensive insurance
Pros: Was not happy at all to see insurance would cost me 120% extra on rental charge. I would have ordered it as I did my reservation through Kayak but option wasn't available and taking insurance on the spot was more expensive
Cons: mtmtransportgeraete@gmail.com

28 Feb 2017
A strange experience
Cons: They tried to give me a higher level car by essaying to upsale what I booked via kayak, so the price rose to 450€ from 80€ conveyed with kayak. I didn't like the way through the seller tried to upsale me something that I didn't book. Furthermore they didn't know I had already an insurance with allianz made via Kayak, I suppose you should fine tune your partnership with AVIS. My global feedback concerning the customer care is really bad, even if auto was ok.
5.6 Okay
13 Apr 2017
Cons: The rental was great until I went to return the vehicle. It started with the Return Agent who took close to 15 minutes to check it out. Then he noted a black scuff mark on the back passenger door. He took another 10 minutes determining that Avis wanted to charge me 725 euros. There was no paint removal -- just a scuff. When I become outraged - his reply was - that is what it is and what the computer states. I even tried to take a picture of the "damage" and it would not even show up on the picture. I asked to speak to a manager & was told I needed to go all the way into the airport terminal. I went into the Kiosk & spoke to someone there who came out with another Check-in agent & both agreed there would not be a charge - there was no paint damage. The Kiosk Agent brought me in to the Kiosk & ended my rental agreement with only the rental charges ($101 for 3 days). He stated that the Check-In Agent was new. To me, that is no excuse - you just cannot read a hand-held computer - you need to use your brain & have customer service skills - both of which this agent lacked, I was so very upset with the whole experience. To me - it felt like a scam. I was asked what type of insurance I had - sort of seemed like they wanted to scam the insurance company.

23 Apr 2017
Pros: Dropoff was easy and simple. Got an an immediate recipt in my email and everything was fine.
Cons: Pickup was terrible. We arrived at 20:30 to Brussels and there was no one in the office at the terminal only in the parking lot. Some of the other agancies were still open. There was a very slow person in the parking lot office and although there were only 2 cars in front of us in the queue we waited 75 minutes (with 2 children and a baby outside the office). Other than that everything was fine.
8.4 Excellent
9 Jul 2017
Great Service
Pros: The service reps at the rental counter were extremely helpful with my reservation even though I had made an error in my desired pick up time.
Cons: The van was missing the rear window wiper which greatly reduced visibility during the few heavy rain driving times. Not a serious risk however.
3.6 Mediocre
24 Jul 2017
fraud
Cons: We paid a very high premium at the airport for insurance. The clerk took advantage of the fact that we arrived in the evening with 3 children. The price came out 796 Euros for 9 days. The site had only a supplementary insurance option. Finally we only made basic insurance. Finally we came out with the highest price of all the companies. We have often rented vehicles in the past and this is the first and last time we will hire Avis. We are considering filing a claim due to fraud.

Great experience
Pros: The car I reserved was not available however they offered a lower model with GPS. They gave a manual when I needed an automatic. Customer service was very prompt and responded to the multiple errors with an upgrade at a reduced price.
Cons: Beware of the parking garage at Brussels airport rental garage. It's a horrible place to find and navigate.
8.0 Excellent
10 Jan 2017
Good experience
Pros: The car was a new luxury car, a Mercedes Class E, which was very nice but not very helpful as it did not quite accommodate all our luggage. Since we needed an automatic, and the choice was very limited, we made it work. Otherwise the car was great.
Cons: I would suggest to buy insurance through the rental company directly, considering that if you had an accident, you would then not need to pay damages upfront, if you buy full coverage. When traveling in Europe, it makes sense to buy full coverage, even if it is more expensive, especially when you consider add ins like windshield or tire protection.
2.0 Mediocre
23 Jun 2017
Pros: We rented a car for $ 340 via Kayak. Upon arrival in Brussels, they told us they had a Mercedes ready for us for $ 550. We canceled the reservation and went to Enterprise.

29 Jun 2017
Pros: Clean. Easy to drive. All our luggage fit.
Cons: Car turned off each time I came to a stop with my foot on the break. Restarted when I released the brake. Annoying! When I returned it, I told there is a button to turn this feature off which they did not inform me about.

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 £22 or less
  • Book your car hire in Brussels at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Brussels are around 31% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Economy car hires in Brussels are around 41% cheaper than other car types, on average
