Car hire is readily available at Avignon TGV station and all the airports, although we recommend booking in advance during peak season (note that hire car pick up itself can take some time at Marseille airrport given the volume of people arriving on Saturdays. Avignon and Nimes airports being much smaller and more pleasant have almost no queues). Car pick-up from the airports/TGV station can also be arranged with our house manager on request.
