Airports

Belgium has several international airports, including:

Ground transport

In all major cities public transport is good and inexpensive. Belgium has the densest train network in the world and often the best link between cities is by train.

Taxis are readily recognisable and can be booked in advance, hailed on the street or picked up from designated ranks. Fares are metered, but some taxis do not take credit cards.

Servicing all major centres is an extensive network of freeways. Please note that Belgium's drive on the right side of the road and distances are marked in kilometres.

You can hire a car through all major car rental companies either in advance or upon arrival.

When travelling to major centres on the weekends and during trade fairs, pre-booking for transport is advisable.

Hotels

There is a wide range of accommodation for all budgets.

Dining

There is a wide range of dining options for all budgets.

Tipping

Tipping is approximately five to ten per cent and applies generally to services such as taxis, restaurant bills and hairdressers.
