is everyone sure there is no bus route to brussels after midnight !

Looked at eurolines.fr, last bus on 18th is at 17:00 and first bus on the 19th is at 07:00.

Looking at bahn.de, last train to BRU airport is at 21:55 leaving Gare du Nord, first train is at 06:25.

Take the taxi.

Quoting liamc83

only other option to save money is to look for another few quotes for the taxi ride !! can anyone reccomend a private coach hire or taxi firm that wont rip me off ??

is everyone sure there is no bus route to brussels after midnight !

bus companies run between northern ireland and dublin every hour in ireland !!! just thought France wud be the same !!

I don't have any recommendation but I don't think at €400 they're trying to rip you off either considering (1) the distance, (2) it's late night/early morning, (3) there are 5 of you.

While it's well and good that Bus Eireann runs hourly between Belfast and Dublin, France in general is a country where everyone travels pretty much by rail and not by bus. I don't think any of my friends ever tried taking buses anywhere long distance. And the only inter-country bus service that we are aware of is Eurolines.

Different country, different mentality. France is a country where people scoff off at working more than 35 hours a week. And they're unlikely to operate at inconvenient time for them if they can help it at all.

All the use of exclamation and caps is making me think you're venting out at us (which may or may not be the case) but it feels a little unpleasant...

None taken. I know this is very frustrating, and well, I've shared all that I know and I've given my points of view.

Best of luck in hunting down what you're looking for, and enjoy the matches both this Saturday and next Wednesday.
