    You can get a special ticket which includes the train travel and the bus transfer to the airport. The ticket code 811/814 is €11.00.

    http://www.b-rail.be/nat/E/tarifs/tickets/airport/... ..

    Trains are departing from Leuven/Louvain at minutes 03, 24, and 28. A stopover is required at any of the three Brussels train stations (Nord/Noord; Central/Centraal; Midi/Zuid) to get the connection train to Charleroi Sud (travel time 80-95 minutes).

    Bus service A is departing from the Charleroi train station at minutes 15 and 45 and reaches Gosselies airport after 20 minutes travel.

    Alternately you could take a train from Leuven/Louvain to Brussels Midi/Zuid [€4.80, 25-40 minutes] and continue by a bus transfer service which departs at minute 00 and 30; the bus company recommends to book a bus which departs at least 2:50 hours before take-off. The fare for the bus is €13.00

    Edit: [based on additional details]

    I have never taken a taxi for this destination; therefore I can only provide information from the web without guarantee.

    As per the website of Rapid-Tax Charleroi the basic fee amounts to €2.20 and the fee per kilometer amounts to €1.30 within the Charleroi area to which the airport belongs to. Based on the distance [approx. 9 kms] the fare would amount to approx. €14.00.
