Budget

The price level in Belgium is about the same as that of it’s surrounding countries. Depending on the season in which you travel and the place you go, the daily costs may be slightly higher or lower.

Budget€50,- a day
Standard€75,- a day

The budgets mentioned above, are per person per day. In the ‘Budget’ category you stay in simple hostels, you will have to prepare food yourself sometimes and do cheaper (or less) activities. With the ‘Standard’ category you’ll have a private room (maybe in a hostel) and you can go out for dinner.

The best time to travel

The best time to travel to Belgium is during spring and summer. The temperatures are higher and there are more hours of sun in the day. Popular attractions are open, but it is busier and prices tend to be higher. But of course, it depends on your travel plans, because Belgian nature can be gorgeous during both autumn and winter. Prices are often lower too, but sometimes popular attractions aren’t open all day.
