Return rental car at Avignon TGV how long before departure?

We are returning a rental car (Europcar, which looks to be on the South Side of the station) at the Avignon TGV before departing for Paris at 15:30 on a Tuesday in July. How much time should we give ourselves to return the car, find our train, and board? This is our 1st time there, we will be spending the morning/lunch in Avignon.

I understand the Festival will be going on, not sure if that will make the station busier to return the car, etc., Per an earlier thread, we got some feedback that we'd be able to park in the Palais des Papes car park if we arrived early enough that morning, so that's where we'll be coming from when we head to the TGV station.

Thanks!

Depends how confident you are, how much you will have been driving around Avignon beforehand. I would allow an hour for all the messing about - getting out of the car park, driving the short distance to the station, giving back the car, getting the bags over to the station and picking up tickets. If you are prone to taking wrong turnings or anxious about timing at all, add something on for that - but if you arrive very early at the station, there's just a cafe and a bookshop, not much to keep you occupied.
