Select your vehicle, plus any of our great extras including GPS gear, insurance options and fast airport transfers. Enter your name, address and credit card details on our secure booking page, and you’re ready to go!


Easy Pick Up and Drop Off

We offer transfers to and from the airport, the ferry terminal and hotels near our depots. If you need a transfer, enter your flight’s ETA or hotel details on our booking page. Alternatively, email or call our staff before your arrival.

COVID-19 ASSURANCE - FREE CANCELLATION

We want your booking to be stress free! If Covid-19 Lockdown L3 or L4 prevents you from travelling, we won’t charge you any cancellation or amendment fees. Furthermore, if you are prevented from returning your car due to L3 or L4 travel restrictions, we’ll offer you a very generous discount on your extended hire period. If your event is cancelled or you elect not to travel during L2 due to Covid health concerns, we will be only too happy to amend your booking and provide you with a credit to use at a later date. Please note that if you simply decide to change your booking and Lockdown Alert Level 2, 3 or 4 is not the reason, then our usual cancellation and amendment terms apply.

COVID-19 LOCKDOWN UPDATE 31 AUGUST: Under L3, the majority of our branches south of Auckland will be operating on a contactless basis to service bookings for local customers and essential workers. Please place an online reservation request or contact the branch directly to make necessary arrangements. If you are due to pick up or return to an Auckland branch while at L4, please contact the branch for advice. Stay safe and thank you for supporting local!

COVID-19 ISOLATION: Please advise us if you have recently been in a managed isolation and quarantine facility. We will deliver the car to you at your accommodation, with all paperwork completed in advance to enable a contactless pick-up (subject to availability and location).

At Pegasus, we take every precaution to ensure your health and safety. We disinfect steering wheels, gear knobs, and door handles with care. Contactless car hire pick up is available nationwide, where we can hand you your sanitised car keys in an envelope. Your comfort and safety is our primary concern. Read more...

“Sorted a car for me on the spot with no booking as my plans changed. Very good prices compared to other Christchurch airport based companies charging 3 times as much for the same car. Reception man was super nice and easy to chat to and car was clean and in good condition. Thanks guys. Will be back again! ”

Customer Testimonial 3

“I rang Pegasus Rentals Wellington and the Manager, Gaurav Chawla (Gee) was extremely helpful.

He arranged a contract and said when I arrived at Wellington Airport to give him a ring and he would meet me. The preliminaries were done and I was on my way on my trip very quickly. I had about 7 days with the car, did not have any problems and was delivered back to the airport promptly.

This was a service I was very happy with and I would use this company again in the future.

Customer Testimonial 2

So glad we chose this awesome locally-owned small business for our car rental in Nelson. Sarah went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed.

Easily one of the best priced car rental places in Nelson, and the car was great for getting around Nelson and Abel Tasman.

Highly recommend Pegasus Car Rentals, and encourage others to support this small business over the bigger rental companies who couldn't care less about you or your needs! ”
