Numerous individuals fall into the mindset trap, delaying their travel aspirations for extended periods. The truth is, adopting a travel lifestyle is entirely achievable for many. Immerse yourself in vibrant cultures and captivating landscapes globally. Whether it’s a day exploring a city, a weekend escape to the beach, a week-long journey to northern regions, or an adventurous mountaineering expedition—wherever your destination, we have your travel desires covered.
The biggest thing to take into consideration when planning a trip to Belgium is the weather. During the winter months, November through March, it can get quite cold. If you’re a fan of the winter, it’s a great time to enjoy skiing and Belgium’s Christmas markets—plus, the canals will freeze over, forming ice skating rinks!
Spring and fall are arguably some of the best times to visit the country. The temperatures are enjoyable, and there tend to be fewer tourists. During the fall, the countryside is painted with hues of red, orange, and yellow as the leaves begin to change. There are also a few festivals to look into during the season, particularly the Jazz Marathon and Ghent Film Festival.
Summer in Belgium, as with most European destinations, means warmer weather but larger crowds. Be sure to book in advance for the best rates and availability!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Language: The country of Belgium has three official languages, Flemish (Dutch), French, and German. You’ll often see signs in both French and Flemish.
Currency: The official currency of Belgium is the Euro (EUR). The exchange rate is USD is equivalent to 0.88 EUR.
Credit Cards & ATMs: You shouldn’t have any trouble using your credit card when visiting Belgium. However, keep in mind that many people prefer cash when it comes to small purchases. Some businesses require that you show ID when using a card and some might even insist that you show your passport, so it’s wise to have both with you. There are ATMs in all Belgian cities and towns, and you’ll usually find them near gas stations, shopping centers, and bus and train stations.
Plugs: In Belgium, the power plugs are type E, the standard voltage is 230 V, and the standard frequency is 50 Hz. I recommend buying a universal adapter (make sure it has surge protection) and using a converter for hairdryers and hot tools.
Safety: Overall, Belgium is a safe country to visit. Petty crime does exist though so don’t carry too much cash and keep an eye on your bags
