Cruise Ship Pick up/Drop Off

Cruise Ship Specials

“We had a wonderful Pegasus experience. My girlfriend recommended you as she had already made a booking with you directly. We arrived on the Sun Princess and were met at the dock and returned the vehicle to the dock also. From my first phone call I felt welcomed and nothing was a problem, Your rate for the day hire was very reasonable. Thank you for a wonderful experience and easy transaction on the day.”

Just thought I would drop you a note of appreciation. Your cooperation and interaction in regard our recent car hire was extremely efficient, thoughtful and helpful. We very much appreciated your assistance. I expect the changed itinerary for the MS Oosterdam was beneficial but not without complications for you and many other businesses at Dunedin and Port Chalmers. We enjoyed our stay and left with good memories kind thoughts for a lovely community. Thank you for your role in all of that

Kind regards,
Michael
