Need help regarding travel on a Sunday

Thank you for being here. I feel I have made a mistake and could really use some advice.

I booked the ferry from Portsmouth to Caen for a Saturday night crossing, arriving in Caen Sunday morning at 7am. I have a hotel in Bayeux for Sunday night when I thought I had a rental car. The plan was to rent a car and sightsee on our own for the day and then drive in to Paris the next day. I have been getting different answers from the rental car place I originally contacted a month ago who assured me they were open on Sunday. Now I am finding out they are not and I am seeing that other agencies are also not open on Sunday. Does anyone know one that is open? Or do you have some other suggestions? We are coming the end of July and I am afraid to wait much longer to get this resolved. I haven't checked with guides yet but I imagine they may be booked by now.

All advice would be greatly appreciated.

There's a list of guides in a top question in the Normandy section.

The heretz place at Bayeux is open everydzy as it's a filling station. You could get a taxi to Bayeux and arrange a car with hertz.
