Thanks again!

Anyway to decline CDW that's included in price?

Thank you very much!

It's a good question, I don't know.
I think they could uncheck it...

I'd call the rental company, but speak to the location itself, and if you get a positive answer, get the guys name etc.

Is there any risk in doing this?  Can they demand a higher rate upon failure to prove Belgian residency?

Never heard in Europe anyone bringing it up.
You could act dumb and say you don't know how Belgium got there.
Make sure that the rest of the address looks USA, also the phone number.

Don't know where to start in Europe with car rentals, I'm seeing prices in the high $300, do they charge underage fee on top of that? Do I need insurance?
Any help is appreciated.
Thank you

Seems super expensive.
Better return in mainland Europe and take a train or low-cost and rent again.
