Opening a Travel Agency in Belgium

Opening a Travel Agency in Belgium

Belgium as a travel destination

Belgium’s geographical location puts the country at the heart of Europe and at the crossroads between four very important countries: France, Luxembourg, Germany and the Netherlands. Its multi-cultural character makes Belgium a very popular tourist attraction. The country has many beautiful cities and some very well preserved medieval towns. The two historic provinces and different ethnic groups in Belgium intertwine their traditions and uniqueness to give the visitor a memorable experience. 

Belgium is an excellent location for a travel agency because of its openness and accessibility: most of the West European capitals are only within approximately 1,000 kilometres of Brussels, the Belgian capital. If you are interested in opening a travel agency in Belgium, our Belgian law firm can assist you throughout the company incorporation procedure.

Travel agencies in Belgium

The travel industry is very well developed in Belgium and a key factor that contributes to the country’s accessibility is a very well established infrastructure and transportation network. Belgium is accessible through all means of transportation, either by bus, by plane, by ship or by car. Because the country is categorised as a small country, it is highly accessible from France or Germany.

Investors who want to open a travel agency in Belgium or offer independent travel consultancy services to tourists must be aware of the specific company regulations contained in the Belgian company law. Our attorneys in Belgium can help you with detailed information about the necessary special permits and licenses for opening different types of businesses in Belgium.
