FAQ Belgium

In Belgium, there are 3 phone network operators: Proximus, Orange and Base.  Proximus is the leader with the best network, but you don’t really see a difference in the big cities.  There are also many other providers using one of those 3 networks.  They can offer cheaper solutions for temporary uses.

All of the operators offers prepaid simcard with some credit, usually starting at 10€ or 15€.  One important thing is that where ever you buy a sim card in Belgium, you need to show your ID/passport and register it under your name (does not matter if you don’t live in Belgium).

Well, this is a tricky question! You really never know in advance… Some years can be a bit cold for summer, with a lot of rain… and some years like last year can be very hot.

In any case, I suggest you to be prepared and bring raincoats or something to refresh you if it’s to warm 😉

Train

In Belgium, the train network is very good and you can go to most of the cities by train.  You can get all the information you need on the Belgian National Railway Company.  There is only one company operating inside Belgium.

Other public transports (Bus, Tram, Metro)

Depending of the region, it is a different public transport company.

  • In Brussels, it is the STIB
  • In Flanders (so in Antwerp, in Boom and around Tomorrowland), it is De Lijn
  • In Wallonia, it is the TEC

Uber

You can only use Uber in Brussels and at Brussels Airport Zaventem.

Taxi

You can find taxi in every cities but it is always the most expensive way to travel around.

From Brussels National Airport (Zaventem):

This is the main international airport where all the normal and long-haul companies go.  It is close to Brussels (20 minutes by car) and a bit further to Antwerp (35 minutes by car).

Uber

You can take an Uber from the airport directly to anywhere.

It is interesting if you are a group of people.  This is the fastest way and can be cheaper than the public transport.

Usually the Uber will wait for you at the parking P1 of the airport, and you have to check on the application on which floor.

If you don’t have yet an Uber account, you should register and use the invite code di4lc in order to get a 5€ discount on your first ride.

Be carefull, Uber is only available in Brussels and Zaventem airport.

Train

There is a train station at the airport and you can go directly to the main stations in Brussels and Antwerp.  There are many trains per hour and it is fast.

You can find all the details on the website of the national railway company.  Be carefull that if you take the train from/to this airport, you will have to pay a special tax on your ticket, called Diabolo.

Taxi

You can also of course go by taxi, which will be maybe the easiest but also the much more expensive way to go (around 40€ to go to Brussels, and probably between 80 and 90€ to go to Antwerp).  It is always better to ask before getting in how much it would cost 🙂

Private transfer

If you are a group of people and want to organise a private transfer by car from the airport to anywhere in Belgium, you can contact me via the contact form of this website and I can organise that for you.  Like that you don’t have to bother to find a way to get to your hotel.

From Brussels South Charleroi airport

This is the low-cost airport situated 1 hour away from Brussels, so 1h40 away from Antwerp.

Uber

Unfortunately, there is no Uber available in Charleroi

Train

Unfortunately, there is no train station at the airport.  You will first have to take a bus to Charleroi Sud train station.  From there, you can take a train to anywhere.

Taxi

You can take a taxi but I’m afraid it will cost you a lot if you have to go to Brussels or even more to Antwerp.

In Belgium, you have to pay in Euro.  If you come from a Eurozone country, you can withdraw money from an ATM with a debit card without paying a fee or for a low fee.  If not, better check with your bank before coming.

Everybody can also use a credit card to withdraw money from any ATM, also with a fee.

In most of the places in Belgium, you can pay everything by card (debit or credit).  The most commonly accepted credit cards are Visa and Mastercard.  A bit less places also accept American Express, and some even other credit cards.
