Here are our top recommendations if you're looking to score the best deal on a rental car:
Sure, you can explore Ostend without renting a vehicle. But with loads to check out here, having one would definitely make your stay more enjoyable. If you're eager to get out of the city and into Mother Nature, pick a set of wheels with some power. A mid-size or full-size SUV will get you to the surrounding coastal plains in style and comfort. Spending the majority of your vacation in town? A small, economical car is your best bet. Driving around busy streets and squeezing into tight parking spots will be a walk in the park in one of these.
You'll be happy to hear that there's a huge range of both economy and high-end rental vehicles in Ostend. What you end up going for is largely dependent on your budget and what you're planning to do. Specialty and prestige vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about mod cons and comfort. If you want to indulge yourself, why not book a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps an upmarket mid-size sedan? On the other hand, if you just need a set of wheels to get you from A to B at the cheapest price possible, go for an economy compact vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
