If you are a resident of Belgium, then boy, do we have some good news for you! The Belgium government has announced that it will be providing free 10-trip rail passes to those who are interested to travel, as the lockdown gradually ends in the country.

Belgium began its lockdown-easing measures on June 8, after being under lockdown for three months to curb the outbreak of the virus. As the country has entered its third phase of lockdown, most businesses including the domestic travel segment are starting to reopen with necessary precautions in place.
