"Public Transport in Brussels, and most of Europe" Métros/Trams/Bus Tip by Vickm

Métros/Trams/Bus, Brussels: 102 reviews and 98 photos

First time tourists to Europe are always advised to take some foreign money in advance for small purchases such as water, candy and public transportation. What they are not told, is that buses,
and metro tickets need to be purchased out of a ticket kiosk which will NOT take paper bills.
If you arrive late, and the airport stores are closed, you will have a real problem getting anyone to give you change for a paper bill.
Also, kiosk machines are usually broken, or hard to understand the directions, and you become a great target for scammers, and thieves walking around just looking for confused and stranded tourist.
Again, just make sure you have some COINS if you are a budget traveler, and not taking a taxi from ANY airport in Europe.
