Complain for kayak servicesHertz was OK but we paid double the price because of the insuranceI bought the full cover Insurance from cayak -Allianz but at heartz desc at the pick up they didn't recognised the insurance. In case of an accident I had to pay up to the total value of the car and then claim from Allianz. I didn't received any documents from Allianz when I booked and bought the cover so I was uncomfortable and I asked for the full insurance from heartz. I called Allianz and they didn't respond. I am not happy with kayak and Allianz. I definitely want a refund of the Allianz Insurance cost

Totally disappointedPick up and drop off was fastFirst of all, they change the vehicle from a compact Ford to a Opel SUV, without previous notice, which doubled the amount of fuel I had planned for the trip. Then, I just realized they charged an additional 27 dollars for insurance, and it was supposed to be included in the total amount I paid when I made the reservation. By the end, they tricked me into spending double the amount I was prepared for. I feel totally robbed, would have been cheaper in any other company

Unexpected charges all the wayDollar car rental turned out is a subdivision of Hertz. There were many unexpected charges and we are still not refunded our fuel deposit which is rather annoying. The pick up/drop off location is really far away from the actual branch. There is a bus taking you there but the wait and the cold on that day were things I would not like to go back to ever again. Contacting and customer service relations seem to be a mission impossible. When asked about the deposits, I was sent an invoice with completely different information than the one I had on initial receipt. Very disappointed, will try to avoid them for future.

Hidden taxesOn the kayak websites some of the taxes are hidden , like aeroport and insurance taxes. Suggested car wasn’t available and I had to take another car. The guys from Europe were nice and gave me the child seat for free

Car hire excess insurance in Charleroi

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Charleroi car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Charleroi.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Charleroi car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Charleroi

  • Have an adventure in Belgium with your Charleroi car hire and enjoy the flexibility that comes with car hire. Rather than waiting around for other modes of transport, which can be inconvenient, opt for a hire car in Charleroi and choose when and where you travel. Take a drive to the Musée de la Photographie à Charleroi to catch an exhibition, before taking your car hire further afield. Visit the capital of the country, Brussels, in 1h at your convenience and enjoy fine cuisine and stunning architecture. Much better than waiting for alternative transport such as a bus or taxi, you’ll appreciate the flexibility that comes with your Charleroi car hire.
  • In under an hour, you can get to the main airport in Belgium, Brussels Airport (BRU), where you can find a variety of car hire companies offering a range of vehicles. As there is only one terminal at this airport, it’s easy to locate the car hire offices upon your arrival. In the arrivals hall, once you’ve collected your luggage and have got through security, you will find well-known companies such as Avis, Thrifty and Enterprise, where you can choose your vehicle for your onward journey. You can also drive to Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL) in about 15min from the centre of the city, where you will also find car hire services like Avis in the arrivals hall.
  • Charleroi is a relatively small city in the Hainaut province of Belgium. However, this doesn’t stop the roads from getting busy throughout the year with visitors interested in the museums and galleries. Expect the roads such as Rue du Cazier to be busy due to the popular Glass Museum, so keep an eye out for pedestrians crossing the road without looking when you are driving in this area. Belgium is also a very popular country for cycling, with many routes going through Charleroi. So be aware of cyclists getting close to your car when you are driving in the centre of town.  
  • Lots of locals from Charleroi commute to Brussels for work during the week, which makes the roads busier during rush hour, which is from 07:00 to 09:00 and 17:00 to 19:00. If possible, avoid driving your car hire in Charleroi during these times, as you are more likely to get stuck in traffic. One road particularly affected is the N5, which connects Charleroi to Brussels. The weekends are also likely to be busier due to the various museums and galleries the city has. Around these attractions, the roads will be busier and parking will be harder to find.
