Coach Hire & Bus Rentals for Every Occassion
Belgium is a fascinating country with a rich heritage. Located in Western Europe, it is the headquarters of NATO and the European Union, both of which are based in the capital, Brussels. The currency is, unsurprisingly, the Euro.
The country is divided into three distinct regions and a different language is spoken in each. To the North, you will find the Flemish region, where Dutch is spoken, and in the South the French-speaking Walloon region. The small German-speaking region in the East is known as Wallonia. Both French and Dutch are spoken in Brussels. Many of the 11.2 million people who live in Belgium are bilingual.
Belgium is best-known for its Medieval architecture and picturesque canals, and hiring a coach or minibus is the perfect way to see this eclectic and interesting country.
By far, the busiest airport in Belgium is Brussels-Zaventem; almost 23.5 million passengers pass through its doors each year. The other airports, including Brussels-Charleroi and Liege, are relatively small.
Whichever airport you arrive at, Rent A Bus can save you the trouble of having to find transport to your hotel after a long and tiring flight. Our airport transfer service ensures that you and your travel companions will be collected from the airport in an air-conditioned coach or minibus, so you can simply sit back and enjoy the ride as you are driven straight to your destination. We’ll also take you back to the airport when it’s time to go home.
Often, a pre-planned excursion will leave out some of the sights you really want to see. When you hire a coach or minibus from Rent A Bus, you can design the schedule, with a personal sightseeing tour just for you and your travel companions. An experienced tour guide will accompany you on your coach or minibus, taking you to the places you want to see and offering insights into the area’s history and culture, whichever part of the country you are visiting.
For the best example of Belgium’s famous step-gabled Medieval architecture, visit the perfectly-preserved Grand Place in Brussels, which dates back to the 16th Century. Other major architectural attractions include the Cathedral of St Bavo in Ghent. This Romanesque masterpiece was built in the 10th Century and is renowned for its beautiful altarpiece. Alternatively, Bruges offers the Belfry and Halle, which dates back to the Middle Ages and offers an impressive panoramic view from the top, if you’re prepared to climb the 366 winding steps!
Belgium has also been the location of many famous battles throughout history. To the South, you can visit Waterloo, where Napoleon was defeated. In the North, around Ypres, you will find one of Belgium’s most touching tourist sites, the battlefields of World War I. The perfectly-preserved trenches stretch for miles, as do the cemeteries where thousands of fallen soldiers were laid to rest.
Belgium’s beer is world-renowned, and while you’re here you are bound to want to sample the nightlife! Brussels alone has over 80 bars selling 400 different beers, plus thriving live music venues and some top dance clubs. Bruges offers cozy, intimate bars, while Ghent’s nightlife venues have a relaxed and intimate feel.
When you hire a coach or minibus from Rent A Bus, you won’t have to worry about looking for a cab at the end of the night, or anyone having to take responsibility for driving. We will pre-arrange a time and place where you will be met by your own air-conditioned coach or minibus, and transported back to your hotel comfortably and safely.
Whatever the reason for your visit, renting a coach or minibus is the ideal way for you and your travel companions to see Belgium. Our fleet is modern and well-maintained, leaving you to sit back and enjoy the scenery while Rent A Bus does all the hard work!
