    An advice: to go to Bruxelles don't take the shuttle bus to Gare du Midi, but take the local bus to Charleroi station, then take the train to Bruxelles. It's cheaper,more comfortable and more frequent

    Flight in the early morning ? Take Van Der Valk hotel ! Cheap and you can leave your car there for free when on holidays! So no parkingfees at the airport. Hotel has free shuttle to the airport!

    If you need to take the shuttle bus to or from the city, and can book your tickets way in advance (more than a month) than possibly you will get them for 5 euros one way. Just check the website!

    You can store your luggage in the lockers near the parking elevators. But keep in mind that although you rent the locker for 24 hours, once you open it, you must pay the fee again to close it :)

    After passing security control, prices are quite interesting: 3,5€ for a 0,5l bottle of Coke (restaurant) and 5€ for 6-pack of Jupiler beer in 0,33l cans (Duty Free shop). What will you choose? :D

    There's only one power plug to charge your phone in the whole airport and it's underneath the coffee vending machine next to the coca cola vending machine near check-in desk 25

    45-1hr travel from Brussels via shuttle. Buy souvenirs and belgian delicacies in Carrefour in Brussels. Goods at the Sky Shop are not tax free (unless stated) and are more expensive.

    You can share a cab to Brussels South Station. It's about 100€. If you are 7 or 8 you'll pay 12€ each. No have to wait, cheaper and faster than the shuttle !

    You can go from and to the airport by sharing a cab with other travellers. Definetely more comfortable and for 3 or 4 euros more than the shuttle

    The departure area bar closes at 10PM, if your flight delayed or departs later, come here for the last coffee, Cecemil or beer earlier! DrLinkedin.com

    Instead of the bus take a shared taxi (they leave when they reach 8 people).. The price is exacly the same (13 euro) and your trip to the center is much more comfortable..

    A small convenience store - named AD Delhaize - is located next to arrivals (land side) and is the cheapest place to buy a drink / snack.

    If you need to get to the nearest railstation, Charleroi SUD, take the bus A. To get the schedule, download the free iPhone/Android App "ProchainBus" and look for the bus "A Charleroi SUD" Read more

    This airport was built in 2005 and looks like a communist era build. Processes would deserve an optimization - typically no separate luggage drop - lucky that the wizzair prices are good.

    Book your shuttle bus to various cities in Belgium (Brussels, Ghent, Bruges...), France and Luxembourg in advance online and pay as little as €5.

    The bus shuttle is a service run by morons! Arrived before 12 and the first bus arrived at 15 to 2.. Di-sa-ster! Quite painful when arriving back from wonderfully organised Stockholm.

    You can play the piano for free. Just make sure you know how to play it. Great initiative.

    Did you know that there's a direct flight from Charleroi to Pisa in Tuscany?How about a vacation surrounded by the peaceful Tuscan hills and a glass of Chianti in your hand?

    Getting better than before. More options to drink/eat, faster controls, bar code scanners to enter the flight area and more access options (or better parking rates).

    Easy access to drop off and pick up. Provided you don't spend more than 15 mins your 1€ is good.

    It's a small and handy airport. If you are in a hurry you can pay 4€ for going through the security priority lane. Not much to do inside. There are buses connecting the airport with the main cities.

    Go ahead, and go for a sandwich our snack at Paul's Boulangerie. It's not that cheap, but it's the just about the best food you'll find here.

    Little but well connected airport. For the bus that lead to the train station, turn left just outside the airport and look for the LineA buses.

    Pay attention that from time to time they check the weight of your hand luggage. if more than 10kg, you must pay 40 €.

    It's an airport, with airplanes. It's not in Brussels, it's not even close to Brussels, but you can get there by bus, or by train in about an hour. It's cheap to get here or away from here.

    Ignore all these silly comments. Charleroi is far more effective than Zaventem. I think all these people never experienced the 1/2 walk from the arrival gates + long wait for luggage at Zaventem.

    Buy your drinks from the vending machines by the gates. They are the cheapest. cheaper than in the food shop.

    If you are checked in online and have the PDF on your phone. Ryanair will print your boarding pass for free at their desk

    get here early if you have baggage to check in because those cues are very long. take the direct bus A from the charleroi-sud train station going 2 times per hour.

    If you take a train from Brussels Central, it could be delayed. Airport is definitely not close to Brussels it's almost in France. And thanks new rules going through security is a long journey.

    Salon de the Paul in the main check in hall has the best food and prices are reasonably. Stop by before heading to your gate.

    free toilets but no free wifi. Low-cost flights counterbalance the distance (bus ticket) from the city center. Train station planned but tickets will still be 10+ EUR

    Buy the city shuttle tickets online. They got really expensive on the bus. Or get one of the taxi services for the same price.

    I hate Ryanair...like the majority of people, but finally when comparing prices I end up flying with them. Thinking about the word to describe the feeling...is a contemporary variation of masochism!

    Use Flibco shuttles to get to main locations out of here. But the ticket online! Not much space to spent some time in the airport.

    For people going to Brussels, colective cabs are cheaper, quicker and more flexibles than the shuttle.

    If commuting from Brussels City or Zaventem, take the City Shuttle back to Brussels City. €12 per person vs. €200 taxi from Zaventem.

    Actually you're not in Brussels, but Charleroi. Getting to Brussel will take you another hour and a half ánd cost you around 20 euros... Just saying.

    Beware of the bus company Autocars l'Elan that goes from Brussels to the Charleroi airport. I bought online tickets, the bus didn't come and they will not pay me back despite emails and phone calls,

    If you need anything to eat or drink just buy it before paasing the security otherwise you have to pay €3.60 for a bottle of water!

    Please refrain from clapping when the plane lands. Or are you doing the same at the supermarket when they finished filling your bag?
