What you need to know for the road
How do I find the best rates on an Avignon National car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, whether you book. But getting your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car in Avignon?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Avignon?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Avignon is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Avignon?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Avignon. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size or SUV will have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Avignon trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does France require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in France. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Avignon?
Avignon certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Avignon National offer one-way car rentals?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different National. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
