When looking to take advantage of car hire in Ghent, keep in mind that the city centre of Ghent is largely pedestrianised, meaning you won't be able to drive right into the heart of the city. However, if you're intending to use Ghent as a base from which to explore wider Belgium or nearby countries, you may want to consider a medium-sized vehicle to allow for greater comfort while on the road.
Belgian speed limits are generally consistent, structured according to the type of road and location. In built-up areas such as cities, towns, and other populated places, including Ghent's city centre, the speed limit is typically 50 km/h (30 mph). Outside built-up areas, it often increases to 90 km/h (55 mph). On motorways, the standard speed limit is 120 km/h (75 mph).
Generally speaking, in Ghent, most parking is available on the outskirts of the city centre due to its pedestrian-friendly design. However, there are a couple of options closer to the centre, including the Sint-Michiels car park located near Sint-Michiels Church and the Sint-Pietersplein car park near Saint Peter's Square. Both of these car parks offer a great location from which to explore the rest of Ghent and cost around €2 (£1.50) per hour. If you're looking for something slightly outside the centre, there is also a car park at Zuidpark for €2 (£1.50) per hour and a free car park at the Weba/Decathlon store.
