For anyone who wishes to combine the charm of a small Belgian municipality with one of the biggest annual music events in Europe, a visit to Hasselt in the northeast of Belgium is a must. Using car hire in Hasselt is a great idea if you want to see everything this region has to offer.
Renting a car in Hasselt is especially recommended for anyone who wants to make the trip to the Pukkelpop Festival with a weekend's worth of luggage and supplies in tow - to save money buying meals at the site and to easily transport those festival essentials.
Pukkelpop is Belgium's second-biggest music festival, and has attracted the most popular rock acts from all over the globe since 1985, as well as attendances of over 100,000 alternative music fans. Pukkelpop takes place approximately 7km north of Hasselt in the village of Kiewit - which makes hiring a car in Hasselt all the more vital to reach the site.
The city centre of Hasselt is mostly a car-free zone; however there are many sights to take in around the town such as the breath-taking Japanese garden and the museum which documents the history of European urban fashion. Rent a car in Hasselt to ensure you've got the time to fit in all these activities!

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.
