If your trip to Vlissingen is all locked in but your itinerary is looking a bit empty, we can give you a few hints and tips.
Near the city center, St Jacobskerk is one sight you might like to put on your to-do list. If you still have space on your travel schedule, Maritime Museum and Het Arsenaal will keep you amused, as well.
With some great road trip options in the surrounding area, having your own car makes good sense. Without one, it'd be much harder to explore all that Axel, 19 miles away, has to offer. Among the first stops you make here ought to be Axel Water Tower, Witte's Museum and De Woeste Kop Golf Club. Locals will also probably point you in the direction of Zierikzee, 22 miles away. If you only have time for one attraction here, let it be Monstertoren. (But we'd also recommend Stadhuis and Zeelandbrug.)
Vlissingen has some picturesque stretches of coastline, and there's no better way to experience them than from behind the wheel of your very own rental car. See what treasures you can find scattered along the shoreline of one of these awesome beaches:
Here are our top tips on how to get behind the wheel of a rental car with extra cash in your wallet:
Sure, you can get around Vlissingen without renting a vehicle. But with so much to check out here, having one would make your getaway more fun and convenient. If you plan to head out of the city and into the countryside, pick a car rental with a bit of power. A full-size or mid-size SUV will get you to the area's shingle seashores in roomy style. Planning to spend most of your getaway in town? A smaller car like a mini or compact will be your best bet. Maneuvering through narrow lanes and squeezing into tight parking spaces will be easy in one of these.
You'll be glad to know that there's a huge variety of both economy and high-end rental vehicles on offer in Vlissingen. What you end up opting for depends on your funds and what you plan to do. Specialty vehicles often spare no expense when it comes to mod cons and comfort. If you're splashing out, why not pick an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a slick mid-size sedan? Otherwise, if you just need something to get from A to B as cheaply as possible, you're better off choosing an economy vehicle (or something else that won't blow your budget).
