There are two train station in Avignon: 1. Avignon Center CIty station (mostly for regional and national "regular" train lines) 2. The TGV station, about 10-12 min from city center by car (mostly for High Speed Train lines).
"La Virgule" is a train shuttle that links both stations within about 5 min,
If, of course, not all the touristic sites are accessible by train, many of them are, and you can do without it (and the parking "burden") to visit Arles (18 minutes), Orange (15 minutes), Aix-en-Provence (TGV, 20 minutes), Nîmes (30 minutes), Marseille (TGV, 29 minutes) and many other destinations around.

There are many Car Rental companies agencies in Avignon. pAs far as I am concerned, I tend to use most often one of the three I listed here, but I can't say which one I would prefer, nor than other are not good ones.
Note: AVIS has an agency located in the City Center Station (others are rather alocated at the TGV station).. If you go for this one, you might try to negociate to park the car in their parking (it's a 10 min walk from the apartments) while not in use.
