Have you worked out how much the Intl.oneway drop off fee will be for the car? I would suggest picking up the car in Northern Franceand using rail before that. The time you are in Brugge the car is not needed. As for the trip to Delft take the tram ! it is not very far. Otherwise you will be paying for parking a little used car. I expect the drop off fee to be €500+

Guess it depends on how much you you dislike public transport ;-)
