This was the second time we have used Pegasus - what a great service !!They sent us comprehensive photos of the car before our pickup at the Dunedin Airport - after midnight . collecting the car was easy - a coded key box to obtain our key and we were off with no delays at all .The car was spotless and in perfect nick . Returning the car was just as easy - park , lock and drop the key into the secure box - that easy . We never saw anyone from the car company , it was all done on trust . There were no surprise bills or extras. We looked after their car and they looked after us at a great price !!! We will definitely keep on using this company and highly recommend them to anyone arriving at Dunedin NZ airport looking for a good car hire without breaking the bank ….

Never actually met them! I did everything online, virtually, and they have very good systems for that. The car was fine; the price was good and it was located right where they said it would be in a handy place at Dunedin Airport - closer and quicker than the big expensive rental car companies.

Great product and customer support. Could not be happier with our week-long rental. The late-stage cancellation of our flight (due to bad weather) required a last-minute extension to our hire. Staff were very helpful and solutions-focused. Fantastic.

The car hire at Pegasus Dunedin Airport couldn't have been more straightforward. The instructions for collection were clear, concise and accurate . The car was very well presented, clean and with good attention to detail. The tyres were correctly inflated, the windscreen washers were topped up, and the oil dipstick showed a full sump. These things are important, it means that the car is safe for serious mileage straight off. I can say that this is not always the case with some of Pegasus's internationally known competitors. Well done Pegasus! Dropping the car off at Dunedin City depot was equally straightforward. I'd strongly recommend Pegasus to anyone looking for car hire whilst in NZ. Jim L. Dunblane. Scotland

Thank you so much for great service! Instructions and car found perfect! Hard to get used to the engine cutting out when at the lights but quite an effect way to save petrol!I highly recommend this company. Also there is no face to face contact, they make up for it by ensuring everything is in place through the rental. I left a package in our rental and they did not hestitate to courier this back to me on the day they proposed. Thank you so much

A big thank you also for helping me when I accidentally locked my bag in the car, and had already put my key in the drop box!

I love a car rental company that has figured out how to allow customers to pick up a car with almost zero hassle. Pegasus has it dialed. From getting off a plane, it was faster than if I had parked my own car at the airport. Find your car with your name on it, get the code from your email, unlock the lock box, and go. Returning was just as easy. Would 100% recommend and will be using them again.

I have always found Pegasus to be very friendly and helpful, have used them before, and will do so again.Keep up the great work!
Dealing with the team at Pegasus has always been an enjoyable experience. It's great to see them celebrating their 30th year, and is certainly well deserved. When asking around friends it is surprising just how many have had dealings with Pegasus across the country. Really love the convenient pickup and drop-off arrangements of Pegasus right at the terminal without having to pay the exorbitant charges of those with a counter inside the terminal itself. A hearty recommendation from a satisfied customer!
