Van hire from Toulouse airport?

3 of us are off to the Pyrenees in May for a week. We are flying into Toulouse and are taking our bikes in hard bike boxes.

Would anybody have any reccomendations on van hire companies or other alternatives for hire vehicles; I have checked all the larger hire companies and they do not seem to rent out small vans suitable for the task. It may be we have to hire a people carrier, but they appear to be so expensive.

Any wisdom?

    Maybe try They seem to be quoting €267 for a Kangoo for the week. Don't know if the folding seat versatility would make that big enough or not?
    Alternatively, If you go to the section labelled as 'Utilitaires' they have a selection of vans & minibuses. A 3-seater van seems to be about €52 per day.
    Both are a lot cheaper than e.g. an Espace from the main airport car hire companies.
    Between me & Eddy Merckx we've won pretty much everything worth winning on a bike.
