KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Zaventem

  • With car rentals in Zaventem, you can easily explore not only Zaventem but also the surrounding areas and cities like Brussels, Leuven, Bruges, and Ghent. Some attractions and points of interest might not be easily accessible via public transportation. With a rental car, you can visit trendy destinations and attractions like Brussels Grand Place, Atomium, the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken, and Mini-Europe at a time that is right for you and your group.
  • Zaventem car rentals are conveniently available at Brussels Airport (BRU). With approximately five major rental companies to choose from, you'll have various options. The car rental desks are in the arrivals hall, and the Rental Car Park is just a brief stroll away from the Arrivals Hall. To reach the car park, simply take the elevator or escalator down to Level 0 and follow the signs for "Car Rental Parking" to collect your rental car.
  • In Belgium, the general rule is "priority to the right." This means vehicles entering a road from a smaller side road or street have the right of way. Seat belts are mandatory for all passengers in car rentals in Zaventem, including rear-seat passengers. Using a handheld mobile phone while driving is strictly prohibited. Use hands-free options if necessary. Children under 12 years old or under 1.35 meters (4 feet 5 inches) tall must be seated in an appropriate child safety seat. When entering a roundabout, vehicles already in the roundabout have the right of way. Vehicles entering must yield and merge smoothly. Some areas in Belgium, including parts of Brussels, have Low Emission Zones (LEZ) where only vehicles meeting specific emission standards can enter.
  • Zaventem is a suburb located near Brussels. As such, the commuting patterns to and from Brussels influence the busy driving times on main roads in Zaventem. Weekday mornings, typically from around 7:00 am to 9:00 am, can see increased traffic on roads like E19 Motorway, R22 (Leuvensesteenweg), and N2 (Brusselsesteenweg), and you also may see heavy traffic here weekday afternoons, between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. The Brussels Ring, also known as R0, can experience congestion during peak hours due to its connection to various parts of the city and suburbs. Inclement weather, accidents, or roadwork can also impact traffic and cause delays on main roads.

    Compact car rentals in Zaventem are a practical and economical choice if you're traveling solo or as a couple and plan to explore mostly within Zaventem or nearby areas. If you're conscious of the environment and fuel costs, consider renting a hybrid or electric car. Suppose you plan to explore beyond Zaventem and visit nearby towns, attractions, or even go on day trips. In that case, a small SUV or crossover offers more space, versatility, and a higher driving position. If you're visiting during seasons with inclement weather, having an AWD vehicle can provide better traction and handling on wet or snowy roads.

On highways or motorways, the speed limit is usually 120 km/h (75 mph).

  • Where are some good parking places in Zaventem?

    Zaventem has shopping centers like Woluwe Shopping Center and Westland Shopping Center, which offer ample parking space for shoppers. Zaventem has train stations where you might find parking facilities. For example, Zaventem Station could have parking options for commuters.

Cancelled our reservation without contacting us. Hired a taxi to take us to the rental spot only to find out it had been canceled without notifying beforehand. They only had a compact to give us when we booked a larger car. Sent us to another location at the airport which they said had our size car available, required hiring another taxi. Arrived at that location and was told they have no cars. Hired another taxi to go back to the original location and had no choice but to take the small compact or nothing. Crammed 4 people and bags into that car. Spent $100 on hired taxis. Ruined 3 days of travel plans. No discount for trouble. Only a discount because of the difference in size category. Not happy. Very, very unhappy. Will not use kayak or sixt again.

Pros:

The facility is at the airport itself, and very convenient. There is a gas station about 1 or 2 km from the airport as well.

Cons:

Their computer was very slow when we picked up the car. It dropped all our information 3x as we were checking in. He apologized, but said it happened frequently. He had to reload our address and passport multiple times. It wasn't busy, so wasn't that big of a deal. If it was busy like a Monday morning, the line would be rather long.

Dec 2018

KAYAK

Cons:

I have rented cars for 10 years and have never been treated in such a disrespectful and rude way as I did at the Brussels airport during our family's Christmas vacation. When picking up the car, I was pressured in multiple ways to get insurance. Neither the man at the desk nor the man at the parking garage seemed to respect my decision not to get insurance. They implied I was not smart to decline insurance. When I picked up the car, I noticed a large dent on the right side that was not documented. I drove it 100 yards to the office and the man was very suspicious of me. He made comments that I created the dent myself in those 100 yards. He was reluctant to document it on the form. He did not sign the document. The fact that he did not sign it, and the fact that there was an undocumented damage to the car, are important for the rest of the story. The car had a lingering cigarette smell in it during the entire trip. The car, a Peugot suv, performed very well during our trip. When I returned the car, we had a short amount of time before we had to make our flight. We were treated to a fifteen minute inspection of the vehicle, with no interest paid to the fact that we were on a timeline. I have never in 10 years of renting cars been subjected to a fifteen minute car inspection, whether or not I had a flight to catch. During the inspection, the Avis man (a different one from earlier -- named Ciorbea - a bald man shorter than the original employee) was extremely suspicious of the dent in the car. He questioned me, then I told him it was the other man, a taller man with more hair, who documented the dent. The two of them discussed it, and it was apparent the two employees had little respect for each other. The form was not signed by the original employee, nor was there a picture taken of it, when I checked out the car - this is what Ciorbea didn't like. The bald man finally accepted that the dent was not my fault; but what if the original employee was not working the day I brought the car back? I do not have any hope that Ciorbea would believe me. Ciorbea found a light scratch on the front left of the vehicle. He consternated over this for another five or ten minutes and questioned me on this. We pointed out that there is no way to prove that we caused the scratch, because we found undocumented damage on the car to begin with. This angered him and he dismissed our point. Then, he assigned two separate "small" charges which totaled over 300 euros. I questioned him: "how do you know it will cost 300 euros to fix this?" He got angry with me and told me he was just doing his job, and that there are "American smart asses upstairs at Avis" who make the rules. I declined to sign the contract because I disputed the damage assessment. I wondered to myself, if charging customers for damage repair is so important, how did I receive a vehicle with three major dents, unrepaired? Where does the damage money go? I was astonished as this man swore in front

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.

3.2 Poor

Aug 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Car was clean and somewhat new. Original deal sounded good.

Cons:

I booked via Kayak, then got a confirmation email from Avis. I am from the US and was booking a luxury car (E class or similar) for Europe. I was quoted 563.29 (USD) at that time, which is why I booked it. The problems began when I arrived at the car counter in Brussels. 1) they requested that I have an American Express card only (never heard of that in my life) to put a large deposit down on the car. I don't have an American Express card and did not book with one. Not once on any email to me did they mention I needed that. 2) so, I was forced to not get the car I wanted for the trip of a lifetime in Europe. Instead of an E class Mercedes, I was told I would get a VW Toureag, then was given a VW Passat Wagon, NOT EVEN CLOSE to an E class Mercedes, for a new price of 967.44 Euros = 1160.93 USD. I'm sorry, what?? So I get a worse car and my price DOUBLES? Not to mention this experience took over an hour and had to be restarted 3 times, taking away from my vacation time. 3) When I dropped the car off, I end up being charged 1293.02, even MORE than the above figure. I realize I purchased insurance, which would be more. I also realize that I returned it with less than a full tank, and was charged over $105 Euros (how is that even legal for a half tank refill?), but my price increased by over $740 for a WORSE car. I would like this email to be sent to a supervisor so I can get a refund on what I can only call very shady and misleading business practices. I was unable to change things at the counter at the time because I was overseas.

3.6 Poor

Jul 2017

KAYAK

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.
