6.0 Good15 Nov 2021
We had to catch a flight from Florence at 6:30 am but the drop off office didn’t open until 8 am. We dropped the car at the short term lot at the airport. Their local number didn’t work so I finally got in touch with customer service in Europe and they couldn’t contCt the airport rental office either. Overall, great car but drop off service was not great.

The Sixt office was closed and told by Hilton next door office had been closed for over a year. Then call Sixt and was told office should be open but clearly it was not. Lady on phone said she would call back in 30 minutes. Never received a call. Since we had to be at a wedding an hour outside of Brusels we had to take a taxi there and back for a cost of ovet $300. Terrible service by Kayak and Sixt.
1.9 Horrible21 Sep 2021
When I arrived at the Sixt location the office was closed. I went into the Hilton hotel and was told that office had been closed for over a year. I then called the sixt company and spoke to a woman who said the office should be open but clearly it was not. She said she would call me back in about 30 minutes. I never got a call back. Since I had to be at a wedding an hour out of Brussels I had to take a taxi there and back for a cost of over $300. This is the worst experience ever with booking.com, Priceline and Sixt.

Perfect assistance from the attendant at the desk. It was little complicated to find the desk as it was relocated to the parking garage due to COVID. but overall, great service and great price.

The service provided by Neusa (employee from Sixt in Brussels Midi) was really efficient, she provided every piece of information related to the rent of the car. So I felt that was really good service and everything was according to our expectations.Nothing

I was charged 14 Euros for fuel when I in fact topped off the fuel at a nearby gas station (4 km away) just prior to returning the vehicle.

Basically a scam rental. Apparently you rent the car but you are now allow the drive it. They charge crazy for even some marks on the tire normally caused by driving on roads and claim it as a “damage”.
4.0 Okay1 Jan 2018
Ups and DownsThe car was nice, everything was very convenient. It was an easy pick up.After picking the car up, I looked at my order for what I had to pay, and I noticed that there were lots of fees that came in after the fact almost doubling the price shown on the website.

The location does not have the right sign.We rented it through Dollar. We were looking for a Dollar counter. Then, we saw Hertz and then asked them where is Dollar. They told us they also did Dollar. Just a bit confusing.

We couldn't find the company and the staff couldn't say their localisation. They didn't know where they were and how to reach their office to pick up the car! They just said that they where located at the Brussels Airport

I was ultimately charged more than three times what I was quoted through your site and I later learned that by using KAYAK my price was even higher .

Wanted a car I could get into and out of easily, got a Megane which was very difficult for this old guy.
9.2 Excellent13 Jul 2017
Central locationWe switched our drop off after the terror attempt at another train station. This location (because of the drop off time) made it a lot harder to get the the airport. And there was little in the way of security. We ended up taking a taxi instead of the train. Not Avis fault at all. Just a complication.See above

Top tips for hiring a car in Brussels

  • Renting a car in Brussels allows you to explore the city's different districts freely and comfortably while avoiding the crowds in public transport. The Belgian capital is easy to navigate, and the roads are well paved and safe to drive on. A hire car is the perfect option for travelers looking to discover other destinations outside the city, such as the picturesque Gaasbeek Castle 9 miles outside of Brussels. Other popular day trips include Antwerp, less than an hour's drive from Brussels, and Bruges, about an hour and a half away.
  • All the big car hire agencies, including Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found in the Arrivals Hall of Brussels Airport (BRU). The airport is located around 7 miles from the city, and the hire rate tends to be the same regardless of whether you book your vehicle in advance or upon arrival. When returning your car to the airport, the car hire entrance is situated on the left side of the airport's access road, as if you're heading to the Front Park 1.
  • Traffic rules in Brussels are very strict. All vehicles coming from the right have priority, and passing another car is forbidden in several locations, including traffic ramps, intersections where the right-hand priority is implemented, or during bad weather. If you're visiting in the winter, be extra cautious as the weather can get quite rough, and rain and snow are constant.
  • Traffic jams are quite common in Brussels, so make sure you avoid the usual rush hours so you don't add extra time to your travels. Morning rush hour is typically between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m., while evening rush hour is normally between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Traffic congestion also peaks in September, when everyone is back from vacation and starting school, sp visiting in the summer months will contribute to a smoother driving experience.
