Reviews from our Christchurch customers

We love to hear about your experience with us! Read what our customers who have rented a car in Christchurch had to say:

Had an awesome experience with Pegasus Rentals! They were by far the most affordable of any rental company I looked at, but lacked absolutely nothing in service for it. They were super friendly, efficient, and helpful in every way.One small caveat might be that the car wasn't spotlessly cleaned when I got it, but it was still sufficient.Highly recommend these guys!

It was our first time to use Pegasus and don’t have any regrets. Excellent service from booking, to pick up, and drop off. The car was clean, no issues and smooth to drive. Hired the car for 15 days for a cheap price compared to other car rentals nearby. Will definitely hire from them again.

Our car hire was for 4 days. Apart from not easily making initial phone contact with you, the driver who had just dropped off a person at the airport, kindly gave us the lift to your firm in Orchard Road. All plain sailing from that moment. At our hotel (Rendezvous) our car with ski racks could not fit in their "car stacker" . Next day, calling in at Pegasus, your staff removed the racks in a few minutes and parking was no longer at issue. Overall our experience with Pegasus was exemplary - full marks for friendly efficient service plus a very good vehicle for our needs.

Cannot fault any part of the rental process experienced. Prompt collection and delivery back to Airport by friendly drivers. Service at depot 1st class from very attentive staff. Well maintained and presented vehicle ready and waiting for collection. Thank you for all your help when others would not provide the service or even provide the regular contact which helpful Pegasus staff certainly did.

I have used Pegasus Rental Cars in Dunedin for a number of years and used Pegasus Christchurch most recently. So, so easy to have a good little car to tour the city and the country. Price was fantastic, pickup and drop off service a breeze, and friendly staff. Am definitely recommending Pegasus to friends and family - and strangers too.... Well done team, and thanks for the hassle-free holiday travel experience 👌👍👏

One of the easiest and best car rental experiences we have ever had in terms of customer service and communication prior to pick up, including a very friendly reminder call the day before when I had forgotten to pay for the rental. Thank you, Aman! They also went the extra mile when I left my sunglasses in the car on drop off, getting them to the airport for me.Super slick and easy after hours pick up too.Car was solid and reliable, exactly as described and expected for the cost. Don't come to Pegasus expecting shiny brand new cars with all the bells and whistles. Come to Pegasus expecting a fair price for a solid, well-maintained car backed up by friendly customer service that is simply priceless.

A++ I highly recommend Pegasus Chch. They were easy to deal with from the initial booking, pick up, drop off and shuttles to and from the airport out of business hours. I also had a minor incident in the car and the extra I paid to remove the excess paid off. Pegasus took care of it all.

Excellent experience with Pegasus Rental Cars. Very well maintained, clean, great price. Did not have any issues with the vehicle and we drove a lot in the South Island.I really can't speak highly about Aman, he coordinated very well, from the time I did the online booking until the end of my trip. Not forgetting Paul (hope I got his name correct) who picked and dropped us to the airport.Aman and Paul I hope you're there when I visit the South Island again.I would recommend using Pegasus Rental cars Christchurch, without giving it a second thought.

I really can’t speak highly enough about our recent experience with Pegasus Car Rentals. From the point of my first email enquiry, to handing back the keys after a period of three weeks encompassing two hire periods, Aman was the epitome of professionalism. Always on hand to answer my questions, either via email or phone, his prompt response times ensured that everything ran very smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble. Very reasonable rates too and no hidden costs.This was the first of many trips to NZ from the UK and I am so pleased that I have found a reliable car hire company that I will use again and again!

I leased a small Peugeot hatchback for a week from Pegasus Christchurch. The staff picked me up at Christchurch airport around 1am in the morning to collect the car and dropped me back to my hotel when I returned the car to Pegasus.The car was an older model with a small engine size but got me around the south island. With the cost of petrol in NZ around $1.40 per litre, a small car makes a good option, if you are not travelling with much luggage.

We will always use this company for our South Island travels.

Normally I have plenty of time to collect my car, but last week, due to late flight arrival, I had 45 minutes to collect car, and get to city centre. Aman arranged for an immediate pick up after advising me it could be 10 minutes, then when I got to depot, paperwork was done, billing done, and car ready! I got to presentation with 2 minutes to spare.On return, always courteous, always a great smile, that is why I keep going back to them. Great service guys, well done!

Pegasus Rental Cars was a great option and experience for my family and I while visiting Christchurch and the South Island. They were very courteous and had the car gassed, cleaned and ready to go upon my arrival at their rental location. Online booking was easy, and I got a personal follow up from Aman to make sure everything was good to go. Returning the vehicle was quick and easy as well. I will be sure to use them again in the future.

My husband and I rented a car from this company on the 6th and 7th September. We experienced exemplary service from the manager, Aman. The email communication from him during the booking process was excellent and courteous. When we arrived at Christchurch airport we were collected by Aman and taken to Pegasus Rental Cars. The paper work was straightforward and simple. I asked Aman about taxi services for the day we were due to return the car and he took the time to set up the Uber app for me on my mobile, and in addition he explained how to use the app. My husband and I are both in our seventies, therefore modern technology sometimes is complicated for us. We cannot recommend Aman enough. He understands the need for good customer service. Our experience was so good that we will always rent a car from Pegasus whenever we require one on our travels.

I have used Pegasus Rentals in Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin but this was my first experience with the Christchurch branch. Our contact, Aman, was a very gracious host and fetched us from the airport. We rented a budget Nissan Tiida sedan and I was very surprised to get the car in gleaming white and in spic and span condition (a first for me with any rental!). We had 3 large suitcases and I was very sure that one would need to go on the back seat but this budget sedan's boot swallowed all 3 bags and still had room for one of our small carry-on(s). Aman even helped lift our heavy suitcases into the boot - good man! I am always a little nervous about rentals and their reliability especially as we planned to make a trip to Dunedin from Chch. We had no issues at all with the car and managed to even eke out a 15km/l consumption on our run both ways. Overall a fantastic experience with Pegasus Christchurch and kudos to Aman for making all the transaction procedures fast and easy as! 5 stars all around!

It's when unforeseen hiccups happen in any business that customer service really counts. Darryn and Aman in Christchurch certainly stepped up for my daughter and I when the vehicle we had booked was not available due to last minute damage. Aman was most apologetic and had no option but to supply us with an alternative vehicle, in a lower category than we had paid for, so that our trip could continue. We subsequently received a rate refund. The staff at Pegasus were courteous and friendly throughout all levels of communication and made sure that we received excellent attention. Aman helped us to download NZ maps for the area we were touring and thoroughly explained details of insurance, road rules, break down assistance if required etc. in order to ensure that we continued to have their support during our trip. The car had no mechanical problems whatsoever and the replacement hybrid we drove was very economical on petrol (which is more expensive in NZ than Australia). The money we saved on car hire went towards wonderful NZ tours and I look forward to returning in the future. If you are seeking 'value for money,' slightly older but clean, reliable vehicles and a car rental service that provides good old- fashioned service, give Pegasus car rentals serious consideration.

friendly staffs, fast administration, and great price. I got imported car from Japan with Japanese language on the screen so I took time to know how to turn on the radio but still good car overall and no problem.during my 2 weeks road trip in South Island. recommended for you to choose local company with cheaper price than expensive big brand.

excellent to deal with - and very friendly too! hired a Leaf electric vehicle, and they have pretty much convinced me to buy one too with their enthusiasm for them. have rented with them before & would happily rent with them again.

I have no hesitation in recommending this car hire company in both Christchurch and Dunedin. The staff are friendly and helpful, and I have never been let down by their cars.

I would 100% recommend Pegasus Rental Car in Christchurch. My family and I dealt with Darren and he was so helpful and accommodating to my family. He went above and beyond and was a all round lovely man. We will definitely be returning. Thanks Darren!

We book all our rental cars through Pegasus where possible nationwide. The Christchurch branch have always been accommodating, very efficient and competitively priced. Darryn and the team don't mind sharing a laugh over the phone to make the day go a little faster!

We had a great experience with Pegasus. The staff were extremely friendly and made sure that we had everything we needed for our trip! They took the time to show us how to download maps on our phone and gave us great recommendations for our route. They were very efficient and picked us up and dropped us off at the airport on time. Service was great, car ran smoothly, communication was excellent- would highly recommend them. Thank you!
