Customer questions about Avignon Airport car hire

I wanted to check what seat my daughter would needs, she is 4yo and around 20kg, is it a booster seat or a toddler seat? Height is 104cm

Hi, we recommend you use the same type of seat that you use at home. We also recommend you consider bringing your own child seat with you as most airlines carry for no charge and you can also save the cost of the child seat on the rental, perhaps upgrade to a higher spec car? You will also know the seat you use is safe and confortable for your daughter. If you do hire a seat and find it is not suitable on arrival, please do just ask the rental agent to swap and they will gladly do this for you.

I am There for a few Days…
You can visit the historic centre of Avignon and see the Rocher des Domes and the Palais des Papes. The famous bridge of Avalon has only 4 arches left, but is still worth the visit. Once you have seen everything the city has to offer, you can drive out to towns like Orange and Nimes, as Avignon is seen as the gateway to Provence.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

Avignon Airport (AVN), or Avignon Caumont Airport, serves the commune of Avignon. Avignon has been known as the City of Popes because so many resided there in the 14th and 15th century due to a religious schism. The city offers international flights only and all of them are to the UK.

For instance some flights are with Jet2 to Leeds Bradford, Flybe has services to Exeter, Birmingham and Southampton and Cityjet does flights to London City. With Avignon car rentals it is then easy to go to the nearby Mediterranean coast, or alternatively the Alps are not far away.
