Escaping square brackets in URLs?

I recently posted a link to:

[url=http://www.youthhostel.ch/hosteldetails.html?&L=1&user_hostels_pi1[bez]=BAD&cHash=9e82d7c97a]Youth Hostel Basel[/url]

which, due to the square brackets embedded in the URL (..[bez]..), turned out:

=BAD&cHash=9e82d7c97a]Youth Hostel Basel

Clicking on the link got to the target, but very inelegantly. Is there a vBulletin way of escaping square brackets?
