From 01/07/23:

  • Petrol and diesel deductibility will be limited to 50% for hybrid company cars purchased after that date.
  • The deductibility of fossil-fuelled passenger cars purchased between 01/07/23 and 31/12/25 will be capped degressively each year until 2028, where it will be zero.

From 01/01/26:

  • Tax deductibility will no longer be possible for fossil fuel cars purchased after this date.
  • For non-polluting cars (100% electric or other technologies) purchased during 2026, tax deductibility will be 100%, but will decrease in subsequent years.

A few useful tips before setting off in your kayaks.


Kayaking depends on the weather:

  • In the event of heavy rain, the water level can vary significantly from one day to the next, forcing kayak hire companies to close the activity for safety reasons.
  • In the event of drought, the Walloon Region may prohibit kayaking on the river for environmental protection reasons.

Before setting off, don’t hesitate to ring your kayak hire company or check river openings on the Walloon Region website. HERE


  • Whatever your age or size, a lifejacket is the best way to ensure your safety when kayaking.
  • Make sure you wear appropriate clothing for the day’s Belgian weather: sun cream, cap or jacket and rain hat.
  • We strongly advise you to wear shoes throughout the trip.
  • The river remains natural, so please remain vigilant and behave responsibly towards the flora and fauna and other river users.

Thanks to Contrat-Rivère Ourthe for the visuals.

They say you never forget a bike? So, to each his own, let’s saddle up for an adventure in Wallonia.


  • Briefing: Reminder of the traffic regulations and the rules applying in the forest, distribution of equipment and safety gear (helmet, fluorescent waistcoat, etc.), explanation of the route, changes in altitude, possible difficulties, etc.
  • Ready to go: To each his trail, to each his level. Set off at your own pace and take it easy on your bike.
  • Take a break … A nice viewpoint, a spot in the shade or by the water, and then a little refreshment to get you going again.


  • Comfortable clothing suited to the weather, closed shoes and plenty of water.
  • A word of advice: be careful with the weight of your backpack.
