      Car Rental

      Paris Jan 25, 2017 at 3:02 PM

      I want to visit Auver Sur Oise when I am in Paris next time (April) and was thinking I might rent a car to drive there and back. I think there is only one train in and one train out per day (direct on weekends). What location would be the best to rent the car so that I can avoid driving through the streets of Paris? I don't mind taking the metro to get to the car rental place, I just want to find a location on the outskirts of Paris in the direction of Auver Sur Oise. Thanks in advance.

    • Luggage Storage near Avignon Centre train station

      by mariavernagrandchild Online Now Apr 11, 2016 at 5:09 PM

      We will be heading toward Arles, (where we will be staying), on the tgv train from Colmar. Before proceeding to Arles, we would like to take the train from Avignon TGV to Avignon Centre, get off, and leave our luggage somewhere, so we can walk around Avignon, ie. Palais des Papes and Le Pont. 1. Is there a place to safely store our luggage - including our laptop? 2. Is this feasible? 3. If we do so, should we purchase our ticket for Arles after we get to Avignon, and will it be good for any regional or local train, or only for a specific train and time? Thank you for your help.

      Bed and Breakfast or similar accommodations?

      by Mermaid2013 Online Now Jul 8, 2015 at 6:23 PM

      Is there a sight here that show B&B type accommodations for Avignon? or are there recommendations. My mother and I will travel next June 2016 looking for a week stay or longer. I see the towns of Luberon on here with access to many beautiful places and was wondering would those places be in the same area? Also, If we are to fly into Nice first would it make more sense to do that area first then rent a car and go to the Luberon region or Avignon for a while then drive back to Nice for our flight home or does anyone recommend another itinerary. We will be in that part of the country for two to three weeks. I apologize in advance for any errors with regions etc. I am just starting out navigating my way.

    • How do I find the new Avignon TER shuttle train to central station at the TGV station?

      by travelad Online Now May 29, 2015 at 2:57 PM

      Has anyone been to the Avignon TGV station since January this year? I read that the shuttle buses have been discontinued with the completion of the new TER Navette (also called Virgule or Comma) train from the TGV station to the central station. Very few websites have been updated to explain how to find it. The TGV website does confirm that there is a new TER train to central station but they don't say where to find the train. An individual posted on his web page a confirmation of this and that the new line connecting the train to the TGV rail line was just completed in January. Any other site I found which knows about the TER train gives old directions, that you have to leave the station, cross the street and go to the bus stop and then follow signs to the TER train but I believe this information is outdated based upon what the individual posted and his photos.

      Does anyone know how to find the new TER Navette train at the Avignon TGV station?

    • Amateur Scooter Drivers in Luberon

      by Yank0 Online Now Jun 25, 2014 at 1:59 AM


      Me an my girlfriend are arriving in Avignon end of June.

      We were thinking about renting a scooter to move around Luberon. I have few questions though:

      - Is scooter driving safe in the area for amateur scooter drivers like us? We both handle a bike just fine but have never been on a scooter before. I know if you can drive a bike, then there shouldn't be a a problem with scooters.

      - Is it convenient to drive a scooter with two people from Avignon to small villages like Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, etc or the distance is too big for a scooter?

      We were also considering renting a car, but those are very expensive and we want to save the extra 200 Eur between scooter rent and car rent.

      Train for an American from Paris to Avignon

      by TooTallFinn24 Online Now Apr 18, 2014 at 2:15 PM

      Looking at taking the train in the fall from Paris to Avignon. In researching tickets the central French site diverts me automatically over to Rail Europe where of course the tickets are much more expensive. How would you recommend purchasing the least cost tickets on TGV I think they are called "prems," in a form that I can print them in advance.

      Second, which is the best train station in Paris to catch the train to Avignon. I understand that I have the choice of Gard De Lyons or Disneyland Paris. Am I correct? Thanks for the help gang.

      Hello friends,
      I've crystallised my travel plans. I now plan to visit Avignon from July 12 for 7 days? Unfortunately most of the nice places seem booked. We are a family of 3. I would ideally like a b&b with common kitchen facility. From most of the tips I feel staying in the town centre would be preferable. Budget is around 150 euros per night for a room with accommodation for 3. Any suggestions would be welcome.
      Also, what are the car rental charges (approx) per day - are automatic shift cars easily available for rent?
      Thanks in advance.

      We have eight nights and seven full days
      We are looking at arriving in Lyon by train in the early evening. Fly into CDG on the 26th of Aug at 12;30pm and want to take the train directly to Lyon. We are thinking of spending three nights and two full days in Lyon and for the additional four days basing ourselves in either Avignon or Arles, taking one or two (schedule allowing) day and half - day trips from there.
      We realize we are going at the high and (hot) season. Which of the do you recommend (Hotel Budget, less touristic :-), convenience for taking train day trips, etc., of these two cities to use as a base?
      We plan on visiting the one we do not use for the base.
      Perhaps, there is a smaller city near either of these two that might serve as a base that you could recommend that might better meet the above criteria.
