New Car
Pros: It was a new car (Twingo) and small enough for handling the narrow roads of the cities and winding Vinyard single lane roads.
Cons: There were no road signs saying where to return the car at the large Lyon Parreche railway station. Very stressful.

Great car!
Pros: The lady was very helpful and was easy to communicate with given our language differences. Once we decided to get the GPS she upgraded the car to one with GPS built in rather than using a hand held unit.
9.6 Excellent
8 Jul 2019
Pros: Drop-off very easy.
Cons: The car they provided was very different than the car I reserved. I reserved a Mercedes Benz C-class. When I arrived, they told me that they don't stock any Mercedes Benz sedans. So, this wasn't an instance where the car was rented to someone else; they just didn't have the car they advertised.

Pros: Good service
Cons: They rip you off with the insurance. Low per day rental and then they screw you really badly with the insurance -- about 4-5 times the cost of the rental.

Easy and fast
Pros: The whole rental experience was very easy. I was in and out in about 5m
Cons: The car wasn’t washed and had been used by a smoker before.
8.8 Excellent
3 Sep 2019
Pros: Yes, the staff were very helpful
Cons: Pricing and more smaller cars with automatic transmission to choose from would have been nicer. We wanted to rent a smaller car.

Couldn't have done it without the GPS
Pros: I reserved the smallest standard transmission car and upgraded to a slightly larger model with a GPS which was comfortable, easy to drive and enabled us to navigate the very small roads in little towns in France. Many roads are poorly marked with the route signs so we couldn't have traveled without the GPS. Pick up and drop off went smoothly and the taxi stand (to get a cab to take us to the riverboat in Avignon) was just outside the rental agency's door.

Pros: nice car, easy pick up and drop off

Cons: There were no signs for Budget at Gare Avignon Which made finding them difficult We were told that a portable Wifi unit was needed and after choosing this option in was inoperable in the Area we were staying. Where we stayed was made clear to rental agent . Physical Maps had to be employed for the entire visit. Making navigation of Provence very difficult. No assistance was giving to locate Auto in parking lot During torrential downpour. Making pick up problematic .

Pros: The lovely woman at the check in counter couldn't have been nicer nor more helpful.
2.0 Mediocre
9 Sep 2019
Cons: It appears they way overcharged me, by $1000. When we returned the car after the time they recalculated the bill at the highest rate rather than the extra day charges they told us about. They haven’t responded to telephone or email inquiries, so all I have is their email to me in Norwegian. Help!

4 May 2017
Pros: The pick-up & drop off went smoothly & quickly.
Cons: The Fiat was smaller than the car I had reserved. It had both a automatic & standard transmission. I never figured it out. Two Frenchman tried to help me & gave up. It was a terrible car with no power.
7.2 Good

5.2 Okay
18 Sep 2018
Wrong Car
Pros: Clean car
Cons: Car available was not the car we had previously agreed. I was given a much smaller car as they refused to give me an upgraded car without significant more payment. However, they charged me the same for the smaller car without offering a discount.
8.4 Excellent
15 Sep 2019
Pros: Our car was great and we loved driving around in it.
Cons: It took a while to pick up the car because there was computer system issue and they at first told us we didn’t have insurance and I had to show them the Allianz email that says “if the rental location tells you hat you don’t have insurance call this number”.

Top tips for renting a car in Avignon

  • With the Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles close by and the cities of Montpellier and Marseille between an hour and an hour and a half away, there is much more to explore than the just the attractions Avignon has to offer, including the scenic and ancient old town. There is no better way to reach all your dream destinations than with your own four wheels, so get a hire car to make the most out of your time in Avignon.
  • Aéroport Avignon-Provence is located about 6 miles from Avignon and has several major car hire companies onsite, so you can conveniently start your time in Avignon right off the bat by picking up your hire car at the airport. Make sure to book your car in advance to use the onsite agencies and follow the signs to the hire service desks upon arrival.
  • Driving in Avignon is generally a wise decision to see everything in and around the city in your own time, but it also comes with some things to bear in mind. There are free expressways as well as tolled ones in France, which are marked with “péage,” so ask your agency whether it is possible to get a transponder that reads the plate and sends a bill. Otherwise, there are pay booths where drivers can pay. Also, drunk driving is fined severely in the wine region, so make sure you are not over the limit of 0.5 mg.
  • During the summer, Avignon is a popular tourist destination and traffic can increase over these months as people are streaming into the picturesque city. Especially the narrow, old lanes can be challenging to navigate with many cars whizzing through the city, so it is generally advised to refrain from driving in the old town if possible.
  • Book your rental car in Avignon at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

How can I find car rentals near me in Avignon?

Take a look at our extensive car rental location map to find the best rental cars near you.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Avignon?

Travelers who are coming to Avignon in the warm summer months could have the most fun when renting a convertible. Renting a smaller car may also be a wise choice because the old city of Avignon is very narrow in many places, and also because petrol is very pricey in Europe. Also remember that stick shifts are commonly used in Europe and renters may have to pay extra for an automatic transmission.

What's the speed limit in Avignon?

All speed limits are posted in kilometers per hour and within city limits 50 km/h (31 mph) is permitted. Drivers can drive up to 70 km/h (43 mph) on rural roads and up to 130 km/h (80 mph) on freeways. On freeways, stay on the right-hand side, as the left lane is only for passing.

How are gas prices in Avignon?

Make sure you find out which kind of petrol your car needs when picking it up. Petrolis quite expensive in France, like in the rest of Europe, and the average price per liter is about €1.45 ($1.64, which is approximately $6.60 per gallon). If you pay by card in European petrol stations, bear in mind that the verification mostly requires the input of a 4-digit pin.

Where are the best places to park in Avignon?

Parking inside the center of Avignon can be a difficult undertaking in the summer, as there are only few spots in the old town. It is better to look for a parking lot outside the walls of the old town, such as St. Charles Lot or L’Oulle. Some of the lots are free for the first few hours before starting to charge, such as the Avenue de la Foire.
