Ghent Guide

Guide

Gent is the Belgian spelling for the city of Ghent and is situated in the Flemish region of Belgium, and is the capital of East Flanders. While the city began as a modest town situated along two rivers, it has reached a population in excess of 235,000 people. The area has become popular through the years with both university students and tourists.

Because there are so many attractions and activities in close proximity to Gent, the tourist trade generates the greatest income in the area. Because of the number of tourists and the size of Gent, the amenities offered in the city are second to none, and haute-cuisine and world class drinking establishments rule the city. There are car hire services offered by nearly every major international provider. Book now using our easy to follow comparison website and we'll find you the ideal car and at the cheapest available price.

Gent is the second largest city in Belgium, and millions of tourists each year come to see the beautiful countryside and the city itself. One major attraction, the "Gentse Feesten", attracts more than two million visitors alone. The so-called "Gent Festivals" provide over a week of festivities and street fairs, and are looked upon as must-see attractions for most visitors to the city. They can also enjoy the extensive medieval architecture and the open, friendly residents. Because the city itself is a multicultural one, it's easy to find a comfortable spot to be among fellow countrymen, whatever your nationality. Gent is a beautiful, vibrant city, and its attractions and architecture are not to be missed.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
