Located on the coast of the North Sea, Belgium is a densely populated country which sits on the crossroads of Western Europe. Belgium is bustling with incredible cities which attract millions of tourists each year. Cities such as Brussels have gained a reputation as one of Europe's must-see destinations; whereas the quiet city of Ghent is where the Dutch people famously holiday in their own country. If you're looking to travel around this incredible country, then car hire in Belgium is recommended. Brussels is especially popular with tourists looking for culture and heritage, with an unusual modern twist. Hiring a car in Belgium gives you complete freedom. Have a drive to Bruges and experience some world class scenery, then hop on the E40 for an hour and visit beautiful Brussels.
If seeing rolling countryside and wooded valleys is at the top of your list; then be sure to visit the city of Spa. This picturesque city is located in a valley on the Ardennes mountain chain; and is well known for its healing cold springs. It is a complete contrast to the cool and swanky city of Antwerp which is one of the most vibrant cities in Belgium and is less than a 2 hour drive from Spa, if you're considering car hire in Belgium. Antwerp encompasses some of the best restaurants, festivals and shopping in the country so hire a car in Belgium and be sure to visit Grote Markt one of Antwerp's most visited attractions in the heart of the city.
In regards to the country's driving regulations - It is customary to drive on the right hand side of the road in Belgium.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
