    Car Hire Avignon

    Avignon Car HireOften referred to as the "City of Popes", Avignon is a beautiful city located in the Provence region of France. It is situated against the left bank of the Rhône River, adding to its scenic appeal. Home to about 90,000 residents, Avignon's small size coupled with its deep sense of history creates an ambiance quite unlike any other French city. Don't miss the Palais des Papes (Papal Palace), for which the city was given its nickname, a looming gothic structure once responsible for protecting the city from attack. Not far from here is Le Pont Saint-Benezet, a now ruined bridge built because its namesake claimed to have been inspired by angels. While in Avignon, you can also take a boat cruise on the Rhône or rent bikes for the day to ride through the city.

    Explore the surroundings of south east France with your car, stopping by neighbouring small towns such as Arles, Nimes or Carpentras. Have a rest sitting on a terrace of a French café or pass through a local market. Make sure to stop in Cavaillon to taste their famous rockmelons.

    Convenient Locations in Avignon

    Travellers to Avignon will be pleased to find a number of convenient car hire pick-up and drop-off locations across the city. From popular airport and rail stations to downtown offices across the city, we've got a convenient location for you. We also have a range of suppliers including Europcar, Avis and Hertz.

    Car parks are available around the perimeter or Avignon and are free or inexpensive. Driving inside the old town can be difficult and is best to go on foot, when possible. Parking is also available at the railway stations.

    Many of the main motorways in France have toll charges. Toll roads can usually be quicker and better maintained than the free roads, though smaller roads through towns are available for those who are interested in this route. Toll roads in France will generally accept cash and credit cards. For more information on toll roads and estimated charges in France, visit their tolls page.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring a Car in Avignon

    Can I hire a car in Avignon if I am under 25?

    Yes, hiring a car in Avignon when between the ages of 21-25 is possible and relatively simple. Anyone in this age group should be aware that they may have an additional charge from their car hire supplier known as a "young driver surcharge," however, this charge will vary.

    Can I use my licence to drive in France?

    In France, you can use your domestic driver's licence to drive. However, while you can drive with your domestic license, an international driver's permit (IDP) is still recommended in France as there is a chance that some local police officers may issue a ticket to international driver's without an IDP, in the event that you are pulled over.
