Tips on how to say Taupo




"Quite simply - all good! The email contact was cheerful and helpful, the booking was easy, and the car was terrific. We also asked for a bit extra - a pickup and drop-off to/from the National Park railway station to Taupo, and this was arranged with great ease. We also extended our rental by one day at the last minute, and again this was done with cheerfulness and ease. I would absolutely recommend Pegasus."

"Vehicle was available on time and as expected, our flight from Auckland was delayed but we were still met at the airport. "

Geoff Holmes, Scotland

"The vehicle was at the airport along with a very thorough Pegasus person. Your service has always been suitable for my needs. Your website was quite easy to use and did the trick for me. Thanks."

Rosemary Delaney, Australia

Dear Mark,

We wished to say thankyou for your very good service and assistance to us when we hired a car from you for three weeks. We really enjoyed our time tripping about the north island and the car was very comfortable, excellent on fuel and a dream to drive. We can’t wait to return to NZ to see all that we have not seen yet. We will be in contact for a rental car again.
Thankyou Mark and Pegasus.

Malcolm and Jill Loone.

Great service from Mark as always. He is a real asset to your business and is always professional and accommodating. I will always choose Pegasus because of the excellent service and value for money I receive.

To Pegasus Rental Cars

Thank you  (I think the name was Barry in Taupo) for the great service in picking us up from the airport & coming back out when our plane was running late.  Nothing was a trouble to him & he was most helpful in recommending places for us to eat & explaining how to get to our accommodation.  The car was in excellent condition inside & out.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Pegasus to anyone else.  The booking was good from the first phone call until dropping off at the airport.
Garry & Yvonne Watson

We chose Pegasus off the net.  My husband spent quite a bit of time trying to find something reasonable and you were it.  We arrived and were promptly greeted and the car was perfect.  The gentleman who served us was very helpful.  We never had any problems with the car.  It was clean and tidy and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.  We would definitely use Pegasus again.
Thank you,



This email is to express our sincere thanks for your assistance when we needed your help. For you to come out from home on a Sunday evening and rescue us from our breakdown, bring us back into town and find us a great car to drive, for us, went beyond the call of duty. We will warmly recommend you to everyone we know. Your friendly, helpful and courteous manner made an otherwise dreadful day for us become that much better. Many many thanks.

Ian Handricks
