    • Few hours to spare between Zaventem and Charlerois.

      Brussels Apr 15, 2015 at 1:14 AM

      I will be dropping a friend at Zaventem (2pm flight) and then another two friends at Charlerois (6pm flight). I don't want the "Charlerois friends" to just wait at the airport for half a day so I want to show them some more of Belgium. I have a problem though with what I can do in this time frame somewhere between those 2 airports.
      For now the best I can think of is Nivelles & Villers-la-Ville.

      Any other ideas on where to go would be appreciated. Also some advise on where to spend those few hours if it would be raining.

      Thanks in advance for any tips!

      travel pass or buy 10 tickets for short/long trip?

      Belgium Apr 4, 2015 at 11:48 AM

      I am still not sure which is worth it. I heard about the 10 trips for 76 Euro. but does it mean for example if I am going to bruge and stop by another city on the way, then I will have use 6 tickets for 2 people? for that day?

      there is also short trip 10 tickets for a price I remembered. does it only include bus trips in Brussels or anywhere in Belgium?

      Belgium 10-journey passes

      Belgium Apr 10, 2015 at 4:14 AM

      I'm intending on purchasing a 2nd class, 10-journey pass that that The husband and I can share during our 8 days in the country, and which will cover us for just about everywhere we're going (math works). A couple of questions:

      One of our journeys involves a 6-minute change in Leuven (platform 8 to platform 3). Can we make it? If for some reason we can't, can we just take the next train as long as the final destination/type of train is the same? The instructions (which aren't exactly explicit) notes that if a mistake is made, don't cross it out - fill out the next lines - but we'll be out of space on the pass at that point.

      Hello everyone,

      My parents will be visiting me soon in Belgium and they want me to take them to cute and charming little cities/villages to visit. They've seen all the major ones like Brouge, Gent, Antwerp, Leuven, Durbuy, Brussels, etc. Quite frankly I'm running out of places to take them :-D

      So I turn to my trusted VirtualTourist friends for help! I want my parents to have a memorable stay in Belgium as usual so all suggestions are welcome! We have a car and prepared to drive up to 3 hours each way if necessary.

      Thanks in advance for all your recommendations.

    • why did taxi driver rip us off

      by longlife Online Now Aug 20, 2014 at 2:21 AM

      after reading comments party of six took symptax taxi to brusells from chaleroi which was fab. sadly on our return to the airport after wonderful sight seeing and tired I stopped at noodle bar and young man kindly phoned for a taxi for Charleroi airport from brusells central he asked the taxi company the price and we where told 50 euro but we would have to take 2 taxis total 100 this seemed good so we booked them. on the way to the airport the taxi driver took the wrong road and we took a huge detour. he assured us the price would not alter it was his error time was pushing on as we had connecting flight to catch. when we arrived at the airport the meter read 155 euro and including his detour he insited that we pay. the quote of 5o euro had been to the main airport after much arguing we had to pay as we had a flight to catch. when I met up witht he rest of my party three young males 23 they had been on the same detour with their taxi but had been forced to pay 250 euro as the taxi driver he insisted on the extra for his return to Brussels town as he would not have a fare returning. after much arguing the young men felt very intimidated buy the taxi and took the money from an atm a great proportionate of their holiday spends. what a truly disappointing experience to a lovely city. can I report this or should I just get over being ripped off we took the details the registration of one of the taxii's

      Help Needed....Flight at morning 6:25 From Charleroi

      by surmeetlamba Online Now Dec 13, 2012 at 8:25 AM

      Hello All,

      A very good evening to all the travelers :)

      I am new in Brussels and travelling to Venice on Saturday. My flight is at 6:25 AM from Charleroi airport. I stay in Evere and very confused about 'How to reach Airport' :(

      As the first bus from Midi is at 04:00, I am not sure if I will be able to make it on time to the airport. Also, I have heard it from some of my colleagues that ‘Midi’ is not very safe during night. Please confirm, if it is good idea to reach airport through Midi considering the flight is at 6:25 AM?

      I have 3 options; I would requests the experts to help in deciding the one, or if there is a better way, please let me know:

      1) Take the first bus to Charleroi from Midi station.
      The problem in this case:
      I will be awake for the whole night as the last bus from Evere to Midi is at 11:30 PM.

      2) Reach Charleroi on Friday night and stay there in the airport:
      Not sure if the airport is open 24 hours?
      In this case as well, I will be awake the whole night.

      3) Reach Airport on Friday night, and stay there in some hotel.
      I would request the experts, to help me find a cheap hotel. I am not carrying anything thing apart from just one day clothes.

      I would request experts to reply ASAP as hardly 24 hours are left.

      Thanks & Regards,
      Surmeet
