Taxi from Viking boat in Avignon to Marseille

How do I arrange a taxi to Marseille airport from Avignon boat dock? Are they there at boat or do I prebook? The train looks complicated for non Fr speaking tourist. I have a 10:15 flight back to states. How early to leave and how long is the taxi ride?

A taxi will cost a fortune.

TGV trains are easy to deal with even if you only speak English.

The train is less than a half an hour....

Is your flight AM or PM?

If it's AM....you are cutting it REALLY close.

I'ts 10:15 am. I figure I should be at Marseille airport by 7:15. I think the daily train is 6:16am

Have you asked your cruise folks about transportation from the dock? They ought to have that information readily available and could probably arrange a taxi for you. Does the boat dock that morning or the night before? If the night before, staying at a Marseille airport hotel might be safest rather than risk delays the following morning. I remember how long it took to get off the boat at Nuremberg!

Good advice from Catullus....there are a number of hotels right at the Marseille airport.

I don't know anything about cruising, but I don't if you can off the boat early enough to get to Marseille for your flight.

It is 100 km (65 miles) from Avignon to Marseille. A taxi would want to be paid for a return trip, so maybe around €200.

There is a train leaving Avignon Centre station at 06.16 that is due to arrive at Vitrolles Aeroport at 07.18, costing €17.20.
