A life saver!Very helpful people who made it quick and easy for me to pick up a rental car - exactly what you want when your own car fails unexpectedly! Amazing price too. I had to keep extending how long I would have the rental but this was not a problem for them. Even having left items in the car, after a quick phone call, they posted them to me straight away.

I rented with Pegasus on two different occasions and had a great experience both times. Everything was super easy from making the reservation to returning the car. They will also pick you up if you can't make it to their office, and they're always on time. Amazing value for such a low price! Lee is also a great guy - always on a good mood, very patient, and happy to chat about Dunedin. 5 stars all the way!

We hired a car after ours broke down and had to be sent to the mechanics. Pegasus were fast and very helpful - even letting us extend the hire for a day after our car took longer to fix than planned.

I loved that when I called someone answered right away, both times. The staff were friendly, well informed with their cars available. The car was clean, tidy and in excellent shape when we arrived in the morning to pick it up. We have rented there on our last visit to Dunedin and will be a valued customer and plan on returning. I would highly recommend Pegasus in Dunedin.

I arrived in Dunedin with a plan of renting a car for my short business trip. At first I was so worried because some car rentals do not have available vehicle and some gave me beyond the budget rental cost. Called up Pegasus and spoke to Warren, straight away I gave him my working budget for the car and glad that he was helpful and accommodating. He was able to find me a car that suits my budget. After ringing him, he prepared the car, and then I was able to pick it up after a few minutes. Car is so presentable and very clean. Thank you Warren! Your exemplary customer service is greatly appreciated. I will definitely call them again in case I need a car service. Kudos Pegasus team!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
