Expat Club is the largest and most active Meetup group in the Benelux. Since we are based in Brussels all our events take place there and also all our trips leave from the Belgium Capital. However, on our way to some destinations we pass through Luxembourg. We could pick you up and drop you off there in that case in your own city (e.g. at the Belair Hotel or Bouillon Parking, but always in consultation with you!).
Destinations served from Luxembourg include the Vosges Mountains, the Oktoberfest, Bavaria, Black Forest, Alsace, Strasbourg and Switzerland. So whenever we have a trip going through Luxembourg we will inform you on this Meetup group. For all our other destinations that depart from Brussels, please see https://expatclub.org/events for all planned trips and https://expatclub.org/destinations/ for all palces we visited before.
Many Luxembourg expats joined us before, and since we naturally welcome everyone in our group you should not have to worry that you will be on your own during the trip. You may have to worry more about not wanting to leave the bus in Luxembourg and to join us onward to Brussels and join also all of those other Expat Club trips ;-) But without kidding, we are sure that you will love our group dynamics.
How to register for a trip? First, you can find all information about the trip on our website, simply click on the link in the Meetup event. Second, it would be best to call or email us before you make a reservation, just to make sure that we both know what to do. Third, you book the trip and just prepare your suitcase.
Should I be a member? Although you are a member of this Meetup group, we also have our own online membership platform on our official website. It is not required to become a member there, but it is recommended because you will then have the opportunity to connect with other trips participants before and after the trip. Membership is free and after we approve your profile you will receive a €10 discount code as a welcome bonus. On top of that you receive a small automatic discount if you join for our trips.

And what happens after I book a trip? You will receive a confirmation and we will contact you about 5 days before departure by email with all practical information about the trip. This way you know exactly where to wait. On the day itself we will update you about our progress on the road. Our trips are always incredibly punctual under regular conditions, but with bad weather and traffic conditions we want to make sure you're not waiting unnecessarily for, so we always update you with our ETA (estimated time of arrival).
