Top tips for hiring a car at Charleroi Brussels airport

  • Car hire in Brussels will give you the freedom to go where you want when you want. It will also avoid having to figure out public transport options. Hiring a car from the airport is convenient, and after a few documentation checks, your journey to Brussels begins. Hiring a vehicle also allows you the opportunity to visit surrounding areas and places you might only discover by car.
  • When deciding on what sort of hire car to choose for your car hire at Charleroi Brussels Airport (CRL), think about what sort of trip you are planning on. This will ultimately help you decide what you need. If you are planning on doing some long-distance road travel, then you can choose whether a small, compact, fuel-efficient car is suitable for you or if you want to spend a bit more cash for the comfort and extra space of an SUV-type car.
  • If you are planning on taking a trip to famed Belgium, then you could use a car hire from Charleroi Brussels Airport to get to your accommodation and then hop on the public transport for a day in the city. Belgium is known to be a traffic jam capital of the world, so don’t waste precious sightseeing time stuck behind the wheel. There will be many other opportunities to use your hire car to explore, but inner city Belgium is not one of them.
  • If you are using a Charleroi Brussels Airport car hire, you will be using a world-renowned brand that has different options for your pick-up and drop-off. If you are flying back home from the same airport, you will be able to conveniently drop off your car at the airport before your flight. Most of these car companies will also have an option for a 24-hour drop-off key box. If you want to explore the region and won’t be able to drop off your car at the airport, enquire with your car hire company about some of the other locations you can drop off your hired car and what fees may be involved.
  • Book your car hire at Charleroi Brussels airport at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

The overall experience was excellent: the lady at the desk was really kind and professional. I just have to complain about booking wth carrentals.com: it was not clear that it was kind of reserved to American drivers, so I had to pay the full insurance to get the car (since I don't have a US-driving license).

We booked a car on your website for 89,98 €. When we arrived at the airport, we had to pay extra 56,99 € for "insurance" because we had booked the car on an American website. We have never been in such an embarrassing situation.

Pros:

Hertz was OK but we paid double the price because of the insurance

Cons:

I 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

KAYAK

Pros:

Pick up and drop off was fast

Cons:

First 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

The reservation was not used at all. The price didn't include any kind of insurance, Budget desk in Charleroi wanted to block 23000 Euro (!!!) on my credit card for this reservation. The Budget representative said this is a common practice and I should not use a proxy in the future and should book direct to them.

Drop-off in Amsterdam was excellent, great service. The Associate who did the return checked the car against the photos (See below) and made the return easy and fast. Pick-up was miserable. I was told to sign a document stating the car "is in perfect condition". It was dirty, dented and the front passenger side was difficult to adjust. I was told to just take pictures and send an email, so I did. The Associate at the receiving end was outstanding.

The surprise upgrade was excellent. Very welcome! We appreciated the GPS as well. The person at the Avis desk was also very courteous and helpful, even being willing to keep the office open for an extra half hour when our flight was delayed.

Cons:

The AVIS pick up was so complicated. Between walking to the rental place, waiting in line, walking to the shuttle, waiting for the shuttle, and arriving at the parking lot, we spent nearly an hour getting our car.

Cons:

Dollar 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.
