Location information for Avignon

Introduction

The well-know Rhone river flows past the center of Avignon. The bridge over the Rhone has made the city famous. It is the bridge of a very popular song: "Sur le pont d'Avignon". The center is surrounded by a four kilometers long medieval wall. The walled city is synonymous with the arts festival that is held every years in the last three weeks of July. There is also the Palais des Papes (Papal palace). During the French revolution, attempts were made to demolish this palace. It withstood all the attempts to break it down and is used during the annual festival for important theatre productions.

Population

Avignon has about 90,000 inhabitants. Due to the large number of students (9,000) the population of Avignon is relatively young. From the 14th to the 18th century, various popes lived in Avignon. In 1791, during the French revolution, the city was incorporated into the (Republic of) France.

Location

Avignon is situated in the south-east of France, at about 100 kilometers from the Mediterranean. To the left of Avignon lies the Central Massif, and to the right of the city are the outskirts of the Alps. What is most unique about the location of Avignon is the fact that the Rhone virtually cuts through the city.

Economy

The economy of Avignon depends very much on tourism. Every year, many tourists come to the Provence, where Avignon is located. The Provence offers beautiful scenery: lovely and rugged, much history and art. Few people skip Avignon. Tourists come to Avignon for its walled city, the Palais des Papes, etc. It is also possible to take a trip up the Rhone, which meanders through the city. Another important source of income is the annual arts festival. Yet another important element of the city's economy are its universities, which attract young people and create jobs.

Airports

Avignon has one airport, Aeroport Avignon-Caumont, which is located at 8 kilometers to the south-east of the city.

Public transport

From the airport it is not possible to reach Avignon by public transport. You can either rent a car or catch a taxi. A one-way trip by taxi costs about € 15. From Avignon's bus terminal you can go to, for instance, Nice and Paris. You can also take the Euroliner to various other cities (in Europe). Avignon's main train station is located in the city center. Right outside the city is a train station that can receive TGV's, for instance to and from Paris. For two euros you can take the shuttle bus that will take you to and from the station. To move around the city, you can use the buses provided by TCRA. Tickets can be bought on the bus. A one-way ticket costs a little over one euro and ten-trip cards are € 8.

Traffic and Parking

Parking and traffic in Avignon are unlikely to cause you any trouble, unless you decide to visit the city during the arts festival. If that is the case, the city will be very busy, and there is little chance you will be able to find a place to park. Also, driving in Avignon will prove a much more chaotic experience.

Hotels

During the arts festival it is impossible to get a room if you haven't booked months in advance. At other times, it is also best to book ahead, unless you visit Avignon during the off-season.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by EasyTerra Car Rental? at this location
