Travelling with your Car to Belgium
Travelling with your car to Belgium gives you the opportunity to discover this amazing country at your own pace without having to worry about sticking to schedules during your trip.
There are so many great places to visit in Belgium that it can be difficult to choose where to head first. Tourist favourites Brussels and Bruges are both perfect places to start as they have plenty to offer their visitors. Drive to beautiful Ghent for the stunning scenery, or travel to capital of creativity Antwerp if you’re looking for a destination with a difference.
On arrival at the port, simply follow the signs to your terminal. You will be given a card to hang from your rear view mirror and directions for where you need to wait to board the ship when you check-in – it’s as simple as that!
When it’s time to board you will be directed by our friendly members of staff to where you need to park your car. Once you are in your space please remember to turn off your car alarm before you exit your car, as this can be activated by the movement of the ferry and cause noise disturbance during the crossing.
Keep an eye out for which coloured staircase is nearest to your car as this will help you to find your vehicle when it’s time to leave, then relax, have some fun, and enjoy all of the great entertainment that we offer on board during your trip across the North Sea.
Upon reaching Zeebrugge port you will be advised when to go back to your car, where you can await instructions from our staff to tell you when to disembark the ship. All that’s left to do is head through passport control and onwards to your adventures in Belgium.
You don’t need to leave anything behind when you’re travelling with your car to Belgium, as you can bring as much luggage as you like on board with you; so feel free to pack your boot with everything you might require during your break.
When driving in Europe you are required to have a European Driving Kit, which includes the following items:
- Reflective jackets for each occupant
