Van rental Lyon airport

Trying to find a van rental company near Lyon airport for week of Marmotte. Getting it hard to locate one.
We need a van for 4 persons plus 4 bike bags, a van with a cab crew is really what we are looking for. Three of us did this last year used Europcar worked out perfect but they don't have a van
available for that week this year that will take 4 persons.
Its working out expensive to hire the 3 person van plus a small car which is an option, but we would rather the van only.
Anyone any suggestions or know of any rental company that would be worth trying. Have tried all the other major rental

    People carrier? Cheaper than a van and more readily available.

    We did Ventoux with 5 of us, 3 in a car, 2 in the people carrier with the five bikes in boxes. Bit of a squeeze as they refuse to let you leave the seats behind.

    With 4 persons & bikes I'd go for two medium sized hatchbacks (e.g vw golf). Probably work out the cheapest.

    Would need an oversized van or MVP to fit 4 blokes, 4 bikes & 4 bags.

    A friend has a place in Lyon and they are a family of 7, they get all kids, luggage etc in a VW Caravelle that they hire. Think its from Sixt of trhe top of my head.
