KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Ghent

  • One of the best ways to explore Ghent is by renting a vehicle from car rentals in Ghent. You’ll comfortably explore all of the city and the surrounding areas that you can't visit using public transit. Car rentals are more convenient, since you can stop wherever you want. From Ghent, you can drive to Belgium's capital, Brussels, in about an hour's drive; there, explore the iconic attractions in the nation's capital, such as the Grand Place, Atomium, and European Parliament. After Brussels, you might head to the Scheldt River valley surrounding Ghent, which offers beautiful country landscapes, quaint villages, and historic castles.
  • If you’re visiting Ghent, you could fly into Antwerp International Airport (ANR), located approximately 41 miles from the city of Ghent. The airport hosts different car-rental providers, including Hertz and SIXT. The car-rental counters are in the Arrivals section of the main terminal building. Pickup and drop-off locations are in P2. You can also fly into Brussels Airport (BRU), which is 42 miles from Ghent, or Oostende-Brugge International Airport (OST), approx. 44 miles from Ghent. These airports have different car-rental services on-site.
  • Driving in Ghent can be a pleasant experience, since the city has a good road network. The roads are well-marked with clear road signs. Ghent's city center has a Low Emissions Zone (LEZ), where only vehicles with reduced carbon emissions are allowed. Familiarize yourself with the restrictions and plan your routes accordingly. Certain parts of the city have narrow roads. You’ll also come across more pedestrians and cyclists in the city center. Drive slowly as you approach pedestrian crossings and intersections.
  • Traffic in Ghent can become congested, especially during rush hour. Rush hour typically starts at 7 am and goes to about 9:30 am; in the afternoon, it lasts from about 4 pm to 8 pm. Traffic can get packed on major roads like the Astridlaan, the Coupure, and the Ring Road. Ghent is a popular tourist destination that draws many visitors, especially from June to August.

Cons:

Sixt did not honor the confirmed price and tried to offer another car at EUR 129.99 then EUR 99.99, which I declined. Sixt did not honer the price and I will not rent from them again.
