9.6 Excellent8 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.
8.4 Excellent26 Jun 2018
New CarPros: 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.
10.0 Excellent6 Oct 2017
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.
10.0 Excellent3 May 2017
Very nice bilingual customer service agent at train stationPros: Helpful tips on car use, upgrade features, and travel guidance.Cons: All good!

Pros: Yes, the staff were very helpfulCons: Pricing and more smaller cars with automatic transmission to choose from would have been nicer. We wanted to rent a smaller car.
10.0 Excellent25 Aug 2018
Easy and fastPros: The whole rental experience was very easy. I was in and out in about 5mCons: The car wasn’t washed and had been used by a smoker before.
10.0 Excellent1 Jul 2018
Fast and readyPros: Three trains were running late and all arrived at the same time, but they were organized and ready for the rush. Car was clean and in good condition.
6.4 Good3 Jul 2017
Pros: Good serviceCons: 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.
8.0 Excellent7 Jun 2017
Pros: nice car, easy pick up and drop offCons: was unfairly charged for an antennae that was already broken but undocumented on the contract.
9.6 Excellent27 Sep 2016
Couldn't have done it without the GPSPros: 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.

8.4 Excellent15 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”.
2.0 Mediocre9 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!
5.2 Okay18 Sep 2018
Wrong CarPros: Clean carCons: 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.
10.0 Excellent8 May 2018
Pros: The lovely woman at the check in counter couldn't have been nicer nor more helpful.
10.0 Excellent28 Jul 2017
Best car rental I've had in EuropePros: Budget at Avignon TGV, France provided superb customer service and a brand new car for my travel from southern France through Spain and back. Highest recommendation!!
7.2 Good7 Jun 2017
Dented rental was finePros: Car was comfortable and the GPS system was invaluableCons: Return directions were not good, had a problem with the location and access
8.0 Excellent4 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.
6.8 Good26 Oct 2016
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 .

2.0 Mediocre4 Jun 2017
reservation does not mean a car is reservedCons: My reserved automatic car was not available upon arrival. Thus, we had to scramble to find an available car at another provider and pay a much higher rate. None of the other companies were surprised, saying that this is business as usual for this location. DO NOT RENT FROM ENTERPRISE at the TGV station in Avignon. They will not hold your reservation for you.
2.0 Mediocre28 May 2017
Be careful what time you say you'll pick up the car.Cons: We said we'd pick up the car at 12:30 and when we arrived late by train at 2:45, they had no car for us. I'm guessing they were able to rent it for a higher price than what I got via Kayak.
4.4 Okay26 Sep 2016
Shakedown by agents --planned scamCons: On review of car the check out agent said, those marks aren't worth noting. On return different agent said you did damage but could be handled easily--obviously wanting bribe. We refused to sign because damage was already on car. Enterprise charged HUGE amount to credit card even though we protested. This is obviously a planned thing. AND we had damage insurance. Had only 15 minutes to get into station so no time to argue with them--they know renters will be in hurry--now trying to deal with them from US.

Top tips for hiring 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.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Avignon for £28 or less
  • Book your car hire in Avignon at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Avignon are around 37% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • A Mini car hire in Avignon costs £38 per day, on average.

  • In Avignon, cars are most frequently hired at Thrifty Nimes Airport (fni) (28 miles from city centre).

  • On average hiring a car in Avignon costs £258 per week (£37 per day).

  • On average a car hire in Avignon costs £1,105 per month (£37 per day).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
