getting to Vaison by taxi - best from Orange or Avignon TGV?

Hello all! We're starting a bike tour in Vaison, arriving from Grenoble. Will take a train to either Orange Center or Avignon TGV, and then take a taxi from there to Vaison (we'll have bike boxes, etc with us so the bus is really not an option).

My question is: should we take a train to Orange or Avignon TGV? Seems like it would be easiest to find a taxi in Avignon, but the more direct route would be to Orange.

Many thanks!

Well you have around 25 kilometers from Orange to Vaison. Will take around 30 minutes. It is 50 kilometers from Avignon to Vaison and can take anywhere from one hour to an hour and a half. Finding a taxi at the train station in Orange should not be a problem. The only thing that MAY be a problem would be the size of your bike boxes fitting into the taxi.

The cost from Avignon will vary from a bit more than double the cost from Orange to triple, depending on the time of day and day of week. Remember taxis rates are higher on weekends, holidays and prior to 7am and after 7pm.

Expect your taxi rate from Orange to Vaison to be in the vicinity of 50 euros, without the bike boxes. I have no idea what they'd add on for those.
