Quiet satisfied with the experience. The car was in very good condition. Good prices and when my battery went dead, the lady came in 10 mins and gave it a jump-start.

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.
