“You really need to rent a car to best enjoy the ‘Top of the South’. We reserved a car with Pegasus Rental Cars in Nelson at a very attractive, budget rate. The Nelson Pegasus agent was at the baggage area at the airport to greet us and assist getting the luggage into the vehicle. We had the contract signed in minutes and were off for our vacation in an older, but extremely well maintained Nissan Sunny. The vehicle proved to be excellent in every regard, including fine gas mileage. When we returned the car two weeks later, we completed the return procedures in minutes. The agent could not have been more helpful, professional and welcoming. I’ll rent from Pegasus again when we return to Nelson.”

“The deal ($199/week) was perfect for a trip where the car travelled one way then spent most of a week parked before returning. No other company in Nelson offered a deal that came close.”

Yvonne, Nelson

“We rented a 4WD from you just after Easter. It was fantastic. We were rapt with the car and your service and will be using you guys again in Nelson.”
